It’s hot.  It’s humid.  And you need just the right thing to wear.  Is your closet ready for the heat of summer?  If not, fetch these basic items that will work season after season…and keep you looking cool in the process.

Must Have #1: A maxi summer dress.  This is ideal for those days you forget to shave, or you don’t want to bare your pale legs.  It looks fresh and beautiful.  maxi dress, maxi dress for summer,

Must Have #2: A straw hat.  It can be floppy, fedora, or any style in-between.  The stylish straw hat can go from day to night and always looks chic.

Must Have #3:  A fitted tank in a neutral color.  It can be white, black, khaki, gray, or navy-anything that can be worn with other complimentary colors.

Must Have #8: Skimpy sandals that show the full monty.  Skinny sandals that show off your feet and keep them feeling comfy are a necessity.

Must Have #9: A pair of classy shorts.  Shorts may not always be work appropriate, but they are perfect for so many other occasions-like any hot summer day!

Must Have #10: A pair of Jackie O sunglasses.  Always chic, these match any outfit, no matter how dressed down.  Whether you find a bargain pair or go the designer route, make sure they have plenty of coverage to shield your peepers from the harsh sun.
