Summer is all about staying cool and comfortable. The trick is how to do it and still look like you put some effort into your outfit. I know in the summer it can be so easy to get sluggish, tired, and unmotivated thanks to the heat. Sometimes the last thing on our mind is what to wear! Im going to help you by sharing 5 pieces you need to have in your closet that will make it easy to style summer looks.
1. lightweight, bold patterned pieces
Think maxi skirts, tank tops, blouses, shorts... Again, the goal of summer is to stay cool. Lightweight pieces help you do just that. To make them even more summer-y, get them in bold patterns like this tank I am wearing! Something about summer just screams 'bold'. From colors to patterns, fashionistas tend to get a little more adventurous in the summer heat! Some of my favorite patterns right now are palm leaves, florals, and cacti! You can find just about any piece with a bold pattern, whether you just want a flowy top in a loud pattern like I did here, or you want to go for the whole bang by getting a full on printed jumpsuit, there is something for everyone and every style. Just try to go for those lighter pieces, rather than a heavy material. Then you will stay cool and look stylish!
Espadrilles are the epitome of summer, and when you combine them with a chic platform sneaker, you are kicking summer fashion booty! While heels are in fact my favorite, platform sneakers are the more comfortable option, making them the best choice for all your summer adventures. Easy to walk in, yet sill give your legs that nice elongated look! They pair especially well with summer dresses, shorts, and rompers. There are so many different espadrille styles to choose from, you're sure to find something you like. When it comes to summer fashion, espadrilles are a no brainer!

It can be hard to stay cool in the summer and still look modestly cute. I know for me, I can often feel like I just want to throw my hair back in a pony tail and grab the nearest tank top and denim shorts. There is nothing wrong with that, of course! But I am sharing five summer pieces I think you should have in your closet, to help you look your best for summer without over heating! ;)
The first is lightweight pieces in bold patterns. Summer is all about being loud and bold, it is a time to be more adventurous with your colorful side! Grab those lightweight maxi skirts, shorts, tank tops, and dresses in some fun summer patterns. Then they can easily be thrown on without much effort. My favorite prints right now are cacti and palm leaves! Both are cute and summer'y!
Two, if you don't have any espadrilles in your closet, you should. They just scream summer to me. They're the perfect shoes to easily add some summer interest to your look, and they come in all sorts of styles from sneakers to wedges. They're just so effortless and cool!
