The warm rays of summer are here and with that comes all the latest and hottest summer fashion trends. Put away the lingering winter sweaters because it’s finally time to make room for those gorgeous light airy dresses, tanks, and all things summer. While our summer plans may look a little different than usual, most of us will surely find the time to enjoy a picnic, relax poolside or take a nice long stroll by some water.  Whatever summer has in store, you’ll look absolutely fabulous with some of these summer must haves. 



Cotton Summer Dress- No doubt about it, the cotton summer dress is a classic staple and this summer is no exception. From maxi length, to balloon sleeves to spaghetti straps you are bound to find the perfect one just for you. Ideal for those hot summer days no matter what the activity from a bike ride to a walk by the coast to an alfresco dinner, with the right accessories it can be casual or dressy. One we just love is this gorgeous summer dress


Open Toe Sandals- There is always a reason to get a new pair of shoes, so go ahead ladies and grab yourself a new pair of open-toe sandals for the summer. Flaunt those recently manicured toes (even if you have to do it yourself) and feel the warmth of the sun on those toes. Sandals go with just about everything and nothing says summer more than a brand new pair of open toed-shoes

Oversized Open Shirt (beach cover up)- The styling possibilities are endless for this summer must-have. Super cute and cozy can be great for covering up your suit or throwing on after a dip in the pool. We just love the versatility of this summer staple and of course the countless options of fabrics, prints, and designs

Summer Shades- No summer essential checklist is complete without a pair of sunglasses. Not only do summer shades complete the summer fashion look but will definitely come in handy as we start spending more and more time out in the beautiful summer weather. There are plenty of inexpensive ones to choose from, but if you want to try a cool new look that is made in Italy and inspired by a unique African insect, check these out.  They are sure to be a head turner. 


 WhiteT-shirt- Simple and basic but always makes the summer fashion must-haves as it can partner with just about everything and always look great. So,whether you are rocking a floral skirt, capris, distressed jeans or really anything else, you can never really go wrong with this staple piece.
