Summer is finally here! Well, not technically, it’s still spring. But, Memorial day has passed and for me that’s the official marker that summer has begun. I’ll be switching to (and sharing!) my summer capsule wardrobe with my summer wardrobe essentials as of June 1st. I’m very excited to share in the coming weeks.
Putting together a summer wardrobe comes with reflecting on my personal style and what summer wardrobe essentials are for me.
These are fresh in my mind so I though it would be fun and hopefully helpful for you all to see what my summer wardrobe essentials are.
Tips for Choosing Essentials
This list of items are all the things in my wardrobe I find to be basics, go-to’s, and foundational items to simple summer outfits. I like to really analyze why I choose to wear things more than others. Especially when I’m getting ready for work in the morning. Why do I immediately choose this over that? For me, those are wardrobe essentials. I always choose mine based on:
It’s become very obvious I like things that add a classic touch, are simple, yet also comfortable. Think denim shorts with a pair of lace up espadrilles. Or plain blue jeans with a frilly or floral blouse. Now think about this for yourself. What do you gravitate towards when getting ready? Can you find a pattern in your item combinations?
For example, I’d never do a frilly blouse with a skirt. I don’t like pairing ultra feminine things. If I’m wearing a floral dress, I’ll be wearing a pair of oxfords, menswear inspire shoes, or huaraches. I’d add wedges only if I’m going to dinner or an event.
So, with that said, you can find below my summer wardrobe essentials!
