10 Summer Closet Staples to Shop for Now

When the weather starts to get warmer, shopping for new items can be a great way to refresh your wardrobe. Check your closet to see what needs to be updated, read current trends and make a list. Then, get your summer shopping game on! Below, we've gathered for you all the summer pieces you should be buying now.

Summer Closet Staples

1. Hat

Every season get a new hat because it might get worn out by the time summer ends. Plus hats can keep your hair in place on a windy summer day or help you hide a bad hair day. Whether you get a fedora, floppy one or Panama straw hat, use it to protect your scalp and face from the sun.

2. One-Shoulder Ruffle Top

Ruffles are one of the biggest trends of the year. Combined that with the one-shouldered trend and you have a top that’s not only feminine but modern and easy to style. You can wear it with pretty much everything you already have in your closet like maxi skirts, trousers, cut-off shorts, denim skirts, and jeans.

3. Denim Skirt

If you want to breathe new life into a classic summer staple, opt for a denim miniskirt with tassels at the end, eclectic patches or a decorative embroidery like the one shown here.

4. Bathing Suit

Like your hat, you should update your bathing suit, too. Try something new this year, and get a trendy one with ruffles and one-shouldered, but don’t forget the classics. You’ll get more use out of a traditional bikini than the ones that you can only wear for lounging.

5. Floral Dress

You probably already have a few floral dresses in your closet. For busy days, they are the easiest piece in your closet to just grab and go, because floral dresses are so versatile. The more the merrier! Style it with mules and your favorite crossbody bag.

6. Tote Bag

    For a weekend trip or day at the beach, a tote bag can store all your summer essentials. Why not get one with personality? Like this playful straw tote embroidered with 'Crazy Sexy Cool' across the front.

    7. Mules

      Whether you opt for strappy ones, slides or open toe, mules are the perfect shoe for your warm-weather wardrobe. Besides the basics, stock your closet with a few dressy pairs that you can wear with maxi dresses for after the beach outings.

      8. Tassels Earrings

        Always a staple for summer! From drop to beaded, these lovelies are everywhere and not going away anytime soon, so stock up in classic gold or more colorful styles to brighten up your summer outfits.

        9. Sunglasses

        Switch out your current pair of sunglasses for an oversized style. Sunglasses are a must when spending time outdoors since you don’t want to be winking and getting wrinkles. Also, they are the perfect accessory for even the most simple outfits. These quirky tortoiseshell shades are great for a day of fun in the sun.

        10. Little White Dress

          A little white dress is a must-have for summer. They go with everything and can be style down with sandals or up with heels and a statement necklace. This LWD with off shoulder ruffles and eyelets is going to be your go-to dress for every occasion.
