Whether you are a minimalist when it comes to clothing or you have an entire closet filled to the brim with items, every woman needs the following five clothing items in her summer wardrobe. They are versatile, stylish, and always ready to help you feel pretty and feminine at a moment’s notice.
A Pair of Jeggings
The term “jeggings” stands for a mix between a pair of jeans and a pair of tight-fitting leggings, and they are one of the hottest fashion trends around for summer 2015. They pair especially well with long t-shirts (like a baby doll tee) but they also work well with your favorite top and a light cardigan. They come in classic denim colors or any other style you can imagine. If you are at a loss when it comes to color choices, you can never go wrong with classic black or a dark-washed denim.
An Animal-Print Blouse
Animal prints are in and out of style like crazy, and this summer, it is all about big, bold, wild animal patterns. A blouse is the best way to express your inner animal, but it should be the center of attention. For instance, pair a beautiful zebra print flutter-sleeve tee with your favorite pair of black trousers and a simple black bangle. The zebra blouse speaks for itself and requires very little in terms of accessories.
A Pretty Summer Dress
Every woman needs a pretty summer dress that she can dress up or down according to her whims. The best purchase is a dress that is pretty and comfortable, too. This summer, it is all about the sleeveless maxi dress. They come in a variety of styles and colors, too. Stripes, florals, and prints are all in style this year, as are classic polka dots. If you choose a solid color, go with a pastel or muted version of a primary, such as an A-line dress in raspberry, plum, or a light turquoise. Minis are out this year, so a dress that hits just above the knee is perfect.
A Cute Cardigan
No matter how hot it gets outside, there will always be that restaurant (or even place of employment) that keeps things frigid all summer long. For this reason, a cardigan is an absolute necessity. You can purchase these in a number of colors, but be sure to consider the rest of your summer wardrobe. Although black works well with just about anything, it is usually not preferable for summer. Choose bright colors, whites, or even pale neutrals like gray or beige.
A Favorite Pair of Jeans
Last, but most certainly not least, every woman needs a pair of jeans – even in summer. This year’s styles are familiar enough; they range from comfortable straight-legs to fitted “skinny jeans” for women of all shapes and sizes. Pair your jeans with a pretty top, a pair of heels, and some shiny accessories to dress it up, or throw on a t-shirt and a pair of sneakers if you choose to dress down. You can find jeans in all washes, fits, and styles when you shop for your apparel online.
With all of the choices available to you in a women’s clothing store, finding the right pieces to complete your summer wardrobe may seem impossible. However, by understanding what is in style for this summer – and what you like to wear – you can narrow your selections and finish your wardrobe beautifully.
