With Memorial Day around the corner, we know that fashion-wise, we can officially pull out our summer white’s. I live by the rule that we can wear white after labor day, but a lot of the fabrics are linen, so it makes sense that they are only able to be worn in the summer when it’s warm out. I’ve found a bunch of favorites of mine that are of all fabrics and product types, from skirts to shoes to purses and accessories, I’ve got it all! It makes a good tan pop well in the summertime, too.
Here are our favorite summer white items to wear before Labor Day!
Firstly, you’ll have to take a look at your wardrobe and see if there’s anything missing that you feel you need or want for the summer. Personally, I’m someone who likes to wear accessories. Therefore, that was the first area I looked at! Shoes, belts, headbands and of course, purses were at the top of my list.
Moreover, I like to live with the mindset of treating yourself in the summer. All year round, really, but especially in the summer because you have worked so hard all year and this is the time to celebrate and relax. Furthermore, it gets incredibly hot and humid in the city, as well as the Hamptons, so it’s essential that we have the clothes and items we need to make it a bit easier to be out and about daily. The fabrics and prices will play a lot into this, but you know yourself the best and therefore, you know what you need in your closet to have the best summer possible.
Secondly, I think this is the most important category! We are at the point of summer now and fabric will be the determining factor of a lot of things. For instance, how much you sweat and if that sweat is absorbed or wicked into or off the fabric of your clothing! There are plenty of lightweight pieces on the market, luckily. Furthermore, this is the perfect opportunity to get a summer staple dress. One that can be dressed up or down for the entire season.
For instance, I like linen, cotton and satin the most for summer. This is because they are so crisp and easy to dress an outfit around. These are the perfect blend of fabrics to ease into warmer weather and stay in it. I would suggest staying away from any knit or sweater material for these types of functions not just because they are heavier in material, but because they lean more casual. Nothing is wrong with being casual in the summertime, because it is the ultimate relaxation season, but comfort will be a huge thing to consider and overheating is never comfortable.
Finally, onto what a lot would consider the most important category! You can find the best option for the season while not totally breaking the bank. Henceforth, this is why it’s important to start out by checking out what is in your wardrobe at the moment. Practicality can go hand in hand with shopping. One thing I don’t like to do is buy something that I think I will only wear once. For example, my best advice is to get something that will be a good staple in your closet. Moreover, something you can wear with block heels and a blazer or sneakers and a jean jacket. The summer look that can fit into your budget is out there, it’s just a matter of searching. Which is why I wanted to help with this post, because I am really excited to share some of my favorite finds for summer!
