A few 85 degree days means its time stash the sweaters and introduce a few warm-weather pieces to my wardrobe. Summer welcomes a fresh slate, not only the natural surroundings but, also your wardrobe. I feel like as soon as a new season officially starts retailers being pumping out a ton of new arrivals, trends, and styles. As much as I love the occasional online shopping session, sifting through page after page can be a tad overwhelming! In an effort to avoid seasonal trends and find pieces that will take me through the year, it’s important for me to invest in transitional prints and a timeless color palette. I’m thrilled to partner with Wantable to help cut through the endless online scrolling and actually be able to try-on a custom clothing edit in my own home!

If you’re not familiar with Wantable, it’s a service curated towards both men and woman where a personal stylist with creating a monthly edit based on your clothing and accessory needs. In all honesty, the service has been awesome to be a part of! Their stylists are incredibly focused on delivering the best service and even allow you to link a Pinterest board based on your personal style (in addition to their in-depth style quiz). I knew I wanted to focus on great basics for the summer season and was given more than a few options to choose from.

This season simple silhouettes are making their way into wish-lists and shop carts everywhere. A classic cotton tee is a must-have during the warmer summer months and an item you’ll continually reach for year-after-year. Because of its timeless nature, I prefer to invest in quality designers and fabrics, among my favorites are Michael Stars and Splendid. 

Layer(able) Blouses
Finding a blouse that’s both stylish and acts as a base layer can be challenging. Search for styles that are well-made to avoid the see-through materials or blended materials that can break down over time.

When balancing work and social life, most of us like to know that our denim investment can do double-duty. For those with flexible working environments denim is essential, however, that doesn’t mean you should be showing up with bare knees and tattered threads. The straight-leg silhouette is polished without looking overly trendy. I still wear denim throughout the summer so this style is perfect for pairing with light blouses or tanks.

Transitional Trends

Billowed Sleeves: Getting dressed should be fun! One of the most celebrated blouse trends of the summer is bell sleeves. This nostalgic sixties-inspired style focuses on exaggerated and billowy sleeves. The silhouette of this style makes this a well-appointed addition to any summer wardrobe. For a high-fashion take on this look try pairing a flared sleeve blouse with a pair of bell-bottoms or a suede midi skirt.

Midi-long Dresses: I've always loathed the term "maxi dress", for some reason I always associate the word with a frumpy garment, and this is NOT an accurate description of this style of dress. The long dress silhouette is perfect for summer evenings, BBQ's, or the occasional casual wedding. I personally live in this style during spring and summer, so having a few go-tos is essential. Normally, I opt for a good mix of both cotton and chiffon styles in solids or lightly printed fabrics. 

Suit-Up:  The resurgence of coordinated sets has been flourishing since the start of the year. For summer opts for short/blazer sets that can be styled together or worn solo. Pair them with simple silk or cotton tanks for an effortless look! I particularly love this when worn in a stripe print or pastel shade range.
