Summer basic clothing is all that anyone needs to look chic this spring and summer. Women want comfortable, casual clothing for today’s laid back style. An Internet search produced some great ideas for what will work in a summer wardrobe. Whether you add all or one of the suggestions below you’ll be ready to go forward and look “on trend”.
A cool piece of beaded jewelry looks like summer. Pictured is a multi-color hand-woven beaded cuff bracelet. It is made on a small bead loom, featuring assorted colors of matte glass beads in a geometric design. It has an adjustable sliding bead clasp design. Fits any wrist size. Clasp beads and tassel ends are composed of sterling silver. It is 2 1/2″ wide and designed by Julie Rofman. Wear this with a LBD for cocktails and dinner or with your casual clothes.

A chic summer straw bag says spring and summer. A straw bag is seasonal in places that are warm part of the year but are year-round bags in warm and tropical climates. Straw handbags come in a multitude of styles and can be made from raffia (a palm fiber), seagrass, cornhusk or straw. Straw bags come in neutrals, a variety of colors and wonderful stripes at a wide range of prices. Below are three handbag styles that will perk up a summer outfit. Find the multi colored bag at Nordstroms, the black and white bag at eBags and the neutral bag at Nordstroms. A;so Talbots has a number of summer straw bags this season.
Pants that say athleisure style are summer essentials. The two pairs below are available at Athleta. They won’t break the bank are great for travel and they are not skin-tight.
Off the shoulder blouses are red-hot and trendy this season and they look great on all ages. A white blouse is a great summer basic and can be worn day or night with dressy or casual clothes. The two white blouses pictured below would both look fabulous with pants or skirts. I found the blouse on the left at Splendid.com. The blouse on the right is from WHITEHOUSEBLACKMARKET. You can find a variety of tops at both sites.
Denim skirts are classics and below are two styles from Nordstroms that would be great for running around town doing errands or eating out on a summer night with strappy sandals, flip-flops or slides. You can pair either one of the above tops with one of the skirts pictured below for an “in style” summer look.
