Every girl needs a sun dress. A cute simple floral dress for the summer is perfect for a picnic or a walk in the park. It's even a great beach dress. A simple tunic for those hot summer days where you don't feel like wearing a lot of clothing. Also, another great simple wear to the beach. The perfect bathing suit for you. No matter what your body type is or what bathing suit you wear. Whatever feels sexiest on you is a must for the beach, pool, and/or lake. Lace tank tops which you can wear with a bathing suit top underneath or a cute bandeau. Every girl needs the classic jean shorts. Doesn't matter what kind they are a must have for summer. They are something that will never go out of style! Rompers and jumpers are a must because they are just as easy as dresses and tunics. Another classic must have are flip flops. Wedges are totally in for the summer. Go with a beige/brown wedge sandal this summer. Wooden accessories like wooden bangles to give your summer look a more earthly look. Also, chunky rings but leave the jewelry at home when going swimming! Also a fun necklace like the Garden Gazebo Pendant from modcloth.com and a pastel jewelry like the BCBGMAXAZRIA watch. For the beach or picnic you need a classic tote bag to carry all the esstentials. The perfect bag for the day or night is a little shoulder bag to carry around your wallet, keys, and lip gloss. Minimal for summer is always perfect. Of course pastel nails. And last but not least over sized sunglasses!
What are your summer must haves?
