The Fashion Girl's Summer Wardrobe Checklist

In the fashion world, there are essentials, and there are “essentials”. Since you’re probably familiar with the former (you know, those universal basics such as a T-shirt, jeans, and a trench coat), the latter will be the topic of today’s post. We’re talking about the of-the-moment items that fashion girls will unanimously categorize as absolute necessities, despite their seasonal specificity and trend-driven status. For example, while jeans are essential, this summer, cropped flares are “essential”. While everyone needs a T-shirt, if you want to step up your style game, you really need a graphic version. But don’t let the quotation marks fool you, because if history is any lesson, these trendy pieces often end up becoming basics. Therefore, by owning them now, you’re both ensuring a solid summer wardrobe and staying ahead of the curve.

So what are you waiting for? Scroll through to see and shop our list and prepare for your most stylish season yet!
