These are the staples to add to your closet this season.
When shopping for summer clothing, it’s easy to immediately go for that memorable floral top that you may wear once or twice. However, we tend to forget about the classic, versatile staples that you can sneak into every outfit. These are the items that you can dress up or down, wear to the beach or to a dinner party, pack for your Mediterranean vacation, or simply strut around your house in. It’s in the shoes, bags, accessories, and that one amazing linen top and gorgeous swimsuit that will make your summer closet feel complete. With summer technically just beginning, there is never a wrong time to freshen up your wardrobe. Shop our favorite summer essentials, below.
