1. Summer Floral Dress
You will absolutely need a light colored floral dress that will get you in the mood of living on the first warm day. You can combine these items with sandals, boots, and even cardigans to suit the temperature outside. A beautiful summer dress will get you noticed every time, and can be combined with different outfits. If it is not too warm, you can get a floral tunic dress that can be worn with leggings, jeggings, or even warm tights. A summer dress needs to be ready to wear in your wardrobe.
2.Sandals and Slippers
Once you have your summer dress ready, you will need a summer sandal to match it. Get a natural color simple sandal ready to go with any outfit: leggings, shorts, and playsuits. If you plan on visiting the beach on a hot day, you will have to get some easy-to slip on womens summer sandals you can take off when you walk in the sand. Make sure that you pick a color that matches every color: tan, white, or black, and you are ready to go.
3. Beach Bag
You definitely will not want to take your handbag or designer clutch to the beach. Having a large tote beach bag that fits all your beach essentials, including suntan, hats, spare socks, slippers, and towels can be practical. Pick a colorful and easy to look after beach bag: either natural color that doesn’t show sand stains, or a shiny faux leather one that is easy to wipe clean. Breathable beach bags are great if you are planning to put your wet clothes inside. Look out for woven bags for storing wet swimsuits and towels.
4. Light Cardigan or Shoulder Scarf
While the first summer days can get really hot, the evenings can be chilly. A light cardigan is an essential item of your summer wardrobe. Go for a bright color skin-friendly cardigan to keep you warm and match floral patterned outfits. Go for a bow-tie cardigan or scarf if you are planning to create a more casual look. You can get a summer bolero jacket for a summer evening party that will highlight your femininity and keep you warm on summer nights.
You will need to get a universal sunhat that matches your floral shorts or bodysuit. Get a wide straw hat for dresses and long skirts, and a sportier version for shorts and mini dresses. A sunhat is a great summer accessory that helps you make a statement and keeps you from sunburn at the same time. If you want to look more romantic, you can even get some scarves or ribbons tied to the hat.
Once you have your legs ready, it is time to show them off. A great pair of shorts that highlights your figure and is comfortable to wear on the street, in the car, and on the beach is a summer wardrobe essential. Pick up a few bright color shorts and you can combine them with different T-shirts, floral blouses, and summer vests. A pair of denim shorts will go with almost everything, and can be worn during the day with sandals, trainers, or canvas shoes.
You absolutely need a great pair of sunglasses before the summer sun starts hurting your eyes. Have a supersized pair for the beach to protect your eyes and face, and a more elegant one that is great for shopping in town and going to work. If you normally wear glasses, don’t forget to get your prescription sunglasses ordered and pick the latest frames, so you can wear sunglasses while driving.
Having a ready-to-go wardrobe is necessary for every woman. You need to be ready for that first bright and sunny day. Have the right footwear, skirts, shorts, and dresses, as well as the essential accessories selected, so you can look fab, summery, fresh, and ready to soak in the rays of the sun. Look out for upcoming trends to get the necessary items before the summer.
