The scorching summer heat is at its peak, and as the season continues to bless you with a golden tan, we believe it’s time to purge your closet of last year’s outfits. You’re living the young, wild, and free lifestyle after all, and your wardrobe should reflect on that. For the meantime, let’s bid farewell to heavy denim jackets and plain white tees- and favor instead, crisp and breathable fabrics in free flowing silhouettes.

Yes, you want to look relaxed as you head to your sweet summer escape, but that doesn’t mean you should lower your standards. That just won’t do. From wicker basket bags to nude bandeaus, here’s everything you need to create the perfect look this summer.

Keep your closet crisp with soft colored crop tops.

Enjoy a large rattan basket bag for a place to keep your summer essentials without looking overpacked.

If opting for a bandeau, contrast it with smooth high waisted pants that’ll put focus on your upper body.

Oversized doesn’t end with tops, be #extra and try headwear that will provide a LOT of shade.

 

Fave ?

No more capris! These breezy-thin wide legged pants are definitely the way to cover up in style.
