Cute Summer Staples You Totally Need

Written by Bryce

A floral dress, chic sandals, and simple cheery makeup are all the Summer essentials a girl could ask for. 

1. Go flowy floral. This dress is universally flattering for curvier figures, average builds, and rail-thin supermodels. And it’s under $100 at ShopBop, so, you win. Wear it all season long and then pair it with navy cableknit tights and a wrap sweater for colder weather in a few months. Boom!

2. Cheeks need love, too! How adorable is this bright pink Clinique blush? The answer is: SO ADORABLE. It layers really well over serums, moisturizers, foundation or just about anything else you may be tempted to throw on before blushing it up. It’s also very buildable, so don’t be afraid to use a whisper brush for daytime or a more intense swipe for evening. Available here.

3. Perforation is key. Two big trends are happening this year: perforated leather and slouchy backpacks… why not combine the two in this Tory Burch number? It’s so effortlessly chic I almost can’t stand it. Available here.

4. Nude flats. Remember when nude heels were basically everything? This year nude flats are where the party’s at. Check out these Fortress of Inca bad boys that go with just about everything from torn boyfriend jeans to for-the-office black peplum. Available here.

5. Add a ladylike cuff. This gold lace cuff works with literally every ensemble, ever. Cutoff shorts and a tee? Check. The outfit shown above? Check. Blue satin evening gown? Check! It’s called the “Chantilly Lace Cuff” and it’s sold here.
