Summer is here and that means time for a wardrobe update! I love pieces that are not just summery items, but ones you can incorporate throughout the year. I’ve been keeping an eye on several items–items that I could wear over and over! Check out five things on my summer wish list and how you can get them too!
1. Ankle Length Skirts
Ankle length skirts first caught my eyes when I saw Kim Kardashian wearing a white one with a crop top and duster coat. What I love about ankle length skirts: they’re fitted, and manage to make you look curvy, feminine and still classy. Instead of wearing a mini skirt, I love the idea of wearing a skintight ankle length skirt that covers my legs with a long sleeved crop top. I’m obsessed with the ankle length skirts from online store Tea-You.com, because the quality is amazing and they’re lined so it will flatter every body type and last a long time. You can purchase one for $90–the quality and design of these pieces is worth the price. The item is called the Anna-Belle Ankle Length Lined Skirt and you can choose between camel, olive green, and lilac on tea-you.com.
2. Side Split T-Shirt
These long t-shirts may seem like it should be reserved for fall, but it’s actually the perfect t-shirt for summer. The fabric is light and the slit down the sides are great because it can show off your denim shorts you wear underneath the long shirt. It’s edgy but still modern–the perfect tee for summer! I love the Side Split T Shirt in Taupe for $24 on Missguidedus.com.
3. Sleeveless Duster Coat
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I love duster coats, I mean, what’s not to love? You can wear them year round, they make any outfit look elegant, and they are light. For summertime, I love sleeveless duster coats, especially Boohoo.com’s Lara sleeveless version for $30. It comes it several colors, including black, blue, coral, cream and rose.
4. Ripped Denim
In my opinion, ripped denim is better than wearing shorts. It’s edgy, sexy and timeless. Ripped denim can worn so many ways, you can dress it up or down, wear it on a night out or a casual ootd. My favorite pair is the Sorella Self Destruct jeans for $60, made from vintage Levi’s denim. They’re custom denim so each pair has a different wash.
5. Cropped Sweatsuit Set
Kylie Jenner wore a red sweatsuit–a cropped hooded sweater with sweatpants–and suddenly I’m obsessing over the look. Who thought sweats could look so sexy? She got her pair from Sorella Boutique–it’s called the “Sorella Don’t Sweat It Sweatsuit,” retailing for $70. It comes in several colors in addition to red, you can get it in gray, green and white. My favorite has to be the green–I can definitely see myself wearing them with my black lace up heels!
