6 Closet Essentials for Spring and Summer
Trends come and go, and while it’s fun to join in on the great colors and styles of the season, there are also a few items every closet should always have on hand. These closet essentials can be used for multiple looks and should be a staple you can always go to (especially on days that you don’t want to wear that crazy pattern that’s trending for spring.) When shopping for your closet basics, make sure it’s something you love, and definitely look for items that can be worn several different ways and be taken from day to night. Here’s a list of the six items your closet shouldn’t be without.
1. Denim Jacket
They’re versatile, light enough for warm weather, and warm enough to fight off any chill that’s left in the air. InStyle advises looking for one with a little extra detail. Decorative features such as a band collar and zippers, rather than metal or buttons, give this basic a little more pop. It can be worn with an assortment of tops, making it a great piece to have on hand. For a great spring and summer look, try it with silky floral shorts, InStyle recommends.
2. White Top
It’s easy to wear, simple and fashionable. A great white tee can be used for multiple looks — whether you’re aiming for preppy, conservative, laid back, or dressy. Pair your white top with colored skirts, shorts, or pants, writes All Women Stalk. You can tuck it in or leave it loose, and you can even layer over a printed dress for a new look. Any fun jewelry paired with it will pop against the white canvas, giving you ample outfit options. If you’re aiming for a preppier look, try a version of a button down. Hoping for feminine? Add a pop of lace or frill to your white shirt.
