If you're anything like me, you probably have summer on the brain right now. Typically, the first thing I shop for when a new season is upon us is versatile basics. Then, as I see which trends are sticking, I start shopping for those to wear with my basics. An excellent place to get started on that basics shopping is Amazon, with its ever-expanding selection of affordable options.

I'm currently planning for shorts, lightweight denim, linen blazers, crop tops, and breezy dresses. I found all of these things and more hiding at Amazon so that you can shop them for yourself without sifting through pages and pages of clothes in search of the good stuff. The great news is that many of these items can be worn year-round—not just when it's 90° and counting.
