The transition from spring into summer comes with changes not only in the weather, but your wardrobe too. While the hottest trends will stay around, this upcoming summer season is all about color and texture. If you don’t have these must-have summer pieces already, it’s time to go shopping!
1. White Leather Jacket
The Spring/Summer 2014 runways were white-hot. White has continuously been seen on red carpets and on the streets. Combine this white-out trend with another popular staple, a leather jacket, for an edgy nighttime look.
2. Floral Crop Top
Crop tops have been around for a few seasons now, and it looks like it is going to stay that way. During the hot summer months, no piece could be more perfect to stay cool, especially when mixed with a trendy floral print. To avoid showing too much skin, make sure to wear crops with a high-waisted skirt, shorts or pants.
3. Pastel Midi Skirt
Another must-have piece for the summer is a midi-skirt. These throwback skirts are flattering on any shape or height. Modernize the piece with an interesting texture and a fresh pastel color. These skirts should end a few inches above your ankles.
4. Metallic Purse
A girl can never have too many bags! Add a metallic purse to your collection, a great piece that can go with a dressy night look or a casual daytime ensemble. Choose a color such as silver or gold that will match with the pieces already in your closet.
5. Orange Block Heels
Ditch last-season’s wedges and opt for a chunkier block heel. Pick a bright summer color, such as orange, that can add a pop to your look.
