Summer is a season when you especially want to keep things simple, there’s too much fun to be had outside to spend time standing in front of your closet wondering what to wear. If you put a little bit of time in up front to make sure you’re ready for the season, you should be able to accept any last minute invitation for summer fun without worrying about what you’ll wear. Make sure you have these must-haves in your closet and you can spend the rest of the summer having fun and feeling fabulous.
Own at least one swim cover up you feel comfortable in walking into a beachside restaurant. A cool hat will not only keep the sun out of your eyes but will hide your undone summer hair. And a fabulous pair of sunglasses will cover your unmade up face, instant fabulous. Find a swimsuit that flatters your body so you’re ready for a trip to the beach or an afternoon poolside. A dressy dress can be worn to a summer wedding, dressy party or a nice dinner at the resort. A casual dress will take you from graduations to casual dinners to backyard BBQs. Tie a silk scarf in your hair for the ultimate summer hair style. A pair of shorts is essential for picnics, outdoor movies, jazz in the Sculpture Garden and other events that find you sitting on the ground. A low heel wedge in a neutral color will take you from day to night, casual to dressy, the only pair of sandals you’ll need all summer. A summer handbag is a must, put away anything too heavy or dark until Labor Day.
