Back to the Basics
These basics are the heart of your summer wardrobe! Anytime you are looking for outfit inspiration take a second look at your favorite bodysuit, bralette, or set to get your outfit started. Neutral bodysuits especially can be styled in endless combinations by layering other prints or pieces or pairing them with different types of bottoms.
Let's Talk Tops
Top off your staples with a trendy cropped tank to pair with any denim short, a casual fit for those more on-the-go outings, and a smocked blouse for a comfy but cute styling piece. Finally, add a neutral pullover like the Unwritten Path Ivory Thermal Pullover to your closet staples for those cooler summer nights.
- Light Wash Denim Shorts
- Medium/Dark Wash Denim Shorts
- Chambray Shorts
- Paperbag Shorts
- Knit Beach Pants
While various washes of denim shorts may be more obvious choices for your summer staples, we also have a few other bottoms to highlight for this season. Chambray shorts are perfect to throw on over a swim suit and pair well with a graphic tank or tee for a more casual summer day look. Paperbag shorts are so flattering and certainly a bestseller this year. The Bayside Stroll Paperbag Linen Shorts just got restocked and are sure to sell out again for the second time! Last but not least, knit, beach pants are great for what they're named for - the beach! However, they are also fun to style with a tied up button blouse.
One and done outfits like dresses, jumpsuits, rompers, and two piece matching sets are great for those annual summer events or last-minute plans you find yourself needing an outfit for. A dressy romper and romantic dress is an essential for any summer wedding. If you’re planning to travel this summer, a comfy casual romper, effortless shift dress, or vibrant matching set should definitely be staples in your wardrobe.
No summer wardrobe is complete without swimwear! Solid swimsuits can be timeless additions for every new swimsuit season. Owning a one piece, two piece, and a cover-up or kimono covers all the basics for any vitamin sea you’ll be enjoying this season. Want to know what is trending this summer?

All the Accessories
We can’t say this enough - it’s all in the details! Neutral toned hats can spice up any simple summer outfit and also protect you from the sun. Our bestselling pair of sunglasses, Smoke in Mirrors Square Frames, pair with any outfit you have in mind (which also keeps your bag lighter when you’re on the go). Layered jewelry like our Cheers to Forever Half Moon Necklace is vital for that summer sparkle.
True: A girl can never have too many shoes. We are checking off the must-haves for your shoe wardrobe. Summer sandals, slip-on sneakers (to pair with those on-the-go outfits), wedge or platform sandal (for those dressier occasions), and a staple pair of flats are the four essentials we recommend to get you through the season!
