If you want to stay ahead of the game this summer, there are so many must-have summer essentials! The fashion trends are constantly changing but the items on this list have remained constant. With these items, you can create SO many different outfits. I suggest stocking up on all of these! Check out some of the must-have summer essentials and then let me know which of these YOU love the most.
1 Oversized Sunglasses
The summertime is all about oversized sunglasses. They're a great addition to any outfit and will only complement your look! They're perfect for blocking out the sun while you're driving, hitting up the beach, or even just walking down the street. I'll admit, I'm a bit of a 'sunglasses hoarder' - I have such a huge collection! This is just one of many must-have summer essentials.
2 Floppy Hat
A floppy hat will earn you major style points! Try channeling your inner Blair Waldorf or Serena Van Der Woodsen and recreating one of their famous hat looks. A hat is a great alternative to sunglasses because it'll protect you from the sun. You can find tons of different styles and colors to match your outfit perfectly. (Here's hoping you all caught that Gossip Girl reference!)
3 Hemp Barefoot Sandals
If you're like me and practically live on the beach during the summer, you NEED hemp barefoot sandals! They're the perfect way to 'dress up' your feet without having to be bothered with sandals. They're also perfect for late night bonfires, or strolls along the sand. You can turn this into a DIY (do it yourself) project or check out the collection from Etsy.
Fringes are a great addition to any summer outfit. Whether they are on your jacket, purse, shorts, etc., they'll keep you looking awesome. I think they add a fun and youthful vibe to any look. I never leave my house without my fringed cross body bag!
5 Polished Nails
Girls, it's so important to keep your nails looking polished! Set aside some time for yourself for a weekly mani/pedi. Even if you think it's a minor detail, trust me, people notice when you take the time to keep your nails fabulous.
6 Kimono Cardigan
A kimono cardigan is great to throw over your crop top + denim cut offs outfit. It'll keep you from looking and feeling too exposed. You can find some adorable (and affordable) ones at Forever 21. I love the patterned ones because patterns add such a fun vibe to a simple outfit. My go-to pattern is floral because I think it's great for the summertime!
7 Crop Tops + High-waisted Pants and Shorts
Crop tops are every girl's go-to item in the summer. You can pair them with high-waisted pants, shorts, and even pencil skirts! The cool thing about crop tops is that they allow you to bare some skin while still keeping you looking modest. I love the idea of pairing a white or black crop top with some fun patterned pants. That kind of outfit definitely has a 'summer' vibe to it!
Well, there you have it. These are just seven out of many street style must-have summer essentials! Which of these items can you not live without during the summer? Which must-have items do you think need to be added to the list?
