Summer is here, and now is the perfect time to shop for items to add to your summer wardrobe. Because the season has already started, a lot of stores are putting a lot of summer essentials on discount or slashing prices as they make way for the new fashions for the fall. If you are still looking for a few summer statement pieces, here are a few suggestions of what to add to your summer wardrobe. 

Floral Print Dress

This kind of dress is very popular and can be found just about anywhere in any kind of style. The floral summer dress is a fashion staple, and everyone needs one. These dresses are light and airy and can be worn to just about any function, and in some cases, can be worn to work. They come in a variety of wonderful summer colors and with a simple sandal, you can go to lunch, to a wedding, or to a meeting.

Short Shorts

Short shorts are in, and if you haven’t gotten a pair, now is the time. Male fashion is all the rage with the short short that comes with a 5.5” or 4” inseam. Short shorts are great to have because they can be matched with a fancy blouse or top and you are ready for a night on the town. You can also match them with something more casual, and you are ready for a day out on the bike, walking, or shopping with friends. They show off your legs without losing style and class. 


A large number of shoe stores are going to have sandals on discount during this time of year, and now is the time to get on board and get yourself some. Anything from a traditional espadrille to a Birkenstock are great to buy because sandals dress up any outfit while still giving you comfort and style. Buying them now means they will still be in excellent shape for next summer.

Birkenstock and Staud have some great items for you to choose from, and their sandals and their apparel all go well with just about any occasion this summer. Log on to their site and see what they have to offer this season.

Symmetrical or Asymmetrical Tops

Once again, summer fashion shows that its versatility is unmatched than any other time of year. As you are perusing the summer sales online or in the retail store, find an array of symmetrical and asymmetrical tops to add to your closet for the rest of the season. Anything from a halter to a tube top looks great at a fancy restaurant or at your best friend’s backyard barbecue. 

Getting a top that hangs off of one shoulder or both, is also a great way to spice up a pair of shorts and with the right pair of sandals, you have a killer outfit that will make you look and feel comfortable while making you look and feel elegant. 

Get a Kaftan

Kaftans are the height of comfort. Many will look at a kaftan and think of their grandmother playing MahJong with the ladies. Let it be known that the kaftan has come a long way. Companies like Kaftko have made kaftans for men that are all the rage. Kaftans are light and airy and they are perfect for spending time poolside with friends while enjoying amazing summer cocktails. 

Kaftans are great for throwing over bathing suits and running to the store or lounging around in the shade of an umbrella as you enjoy poolside bites. In an array of patterns and colors, the kaftan is where it’s at. 


If you’re like most people, your sunglasses easily break and get lost. There is no need to spend hundreds on sunglasses. It’s always great to have an amazing pair that you can wear to special events, but for tooling around town or hanging on the beach with friends, get a cheap pair. You will find that corner stores and drug stores all sell great looking sunglasses for super cheap. 

Even though the price tag is low, the look looks designer. Get a few pairs, and never run out of options and never run out of coverage for your eyes. Depending on the shape of your face will determine if you need a smaller frame, wider frame, or a heart-shaped frame that will accentuate your gorgeous features and your outfit. 

Beach Totes

You totes need a great beach tote for the summer. It never hurts to carry the essentials with you all summer. Those essentials are a hat, an umbrella, a small towel, a kaftan, and sunblock. Having these items at the ready all summer long is a must have to ensure you are playing safe in the sun and prepared for any unexpected adventures. 

Beach totes are also great to use as an everyday bag where you can keep your wallet and other accessories. Matched with the right outfit, you will always look summery and always look as if you just arrived from the beach. It’s a good look to go with your gorgeous tan or your summer hair. 

Don’t Forget Your Hair

Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean that you have to pull your hair back and forget about your hairstyle. There are a bunch of ways to decorate your beautiful summer hair. Decorative bobby pins are great, hair scrunchies, scarves, and hair ties. Having these items will help your styled hair stay in place while adding the perfect touch to your outfit. You will continue to look light and breezy as you travel through the warm weather.
