This week I’m sharing 3 great pieces you need for this summer. Not only are they great staples to get you through the summer, but they’re basics that you can dress up or down, so no matter what the event is you’ll be seen as a trendsetter.
First up is what’s being called the “Party Pant.” Not only do these sound like the most fun pants ever, but you can make them work for day-time or a night out on the town, even at work! They’re similar to the high-waisted, wide-leg suit pant, but when buying in different fabrics, lengths and colors you can really make them quite versatile. The pair below from Asos can be worn with a tucked in button up for a work-friendly vibe, or a playful crop top for a summer garden party.
Next is a maxi skirt, which is admittedly pretty similar to the above pants. There’s something glamorous about switching up from the shorter hemlines and rocking a floor-length skirt. If you get a pair in a basic color like black, navy, or maroon, you can pretty much create endless looks with different crop tops, blouses, or worn over top of a sexy bodysuit. And, it’s super easy to find budget-friendly options, like this Fold Over Slit Maxi from Forever 21 for just $14.
A lightweight kimono will quickly become your best friend for cooler summer nights, and hopefully can replace that old zip-up hoodie you always seem to reach for. Just like the maxi skirt you can get a kimono in a basic color like black or white, or choose one with a print that incorporates lots of colors so you can easily make it work with whatever you’re wearing. This fringed option from Nasty Gal works great with more casual outfits, but also gives you that trendy yet effortless look.
Or for a look that’s a little less bohemian, this cropped kimono from Free People features delicate lace and floral embroidery.
Whether you start wearing one of these items, or all three, you’ll quickly wonder how you ever survived without them! Does anyone have any summer staples that they love?
