4 FRESH ITEMS TO CONSIDER ADDING TO YOUR WARDROBE THIS SUMMER.jpg

The new season cues new wardrobe and style changes! To help you out, we've created a quick list of some things that could potentially be your new best friends this summer. Happy May!! 

1. Statement Denim Jacket

Denim jackets will never ever go out of style. They're just not going anywhere - and that's great for us because we can keep our favorites but still be forever inspired by the new looks and styles that we see every season. A cute but bold jacket can be your best friend all summer and even into fall because of its versatility. It doesn't need to be ironed which makes it a perfect grab-it-and-go piece, it will keep you warm on a summer night, it goes with pretty much anything, and if it looks good and reflects your style then its bound to get some positive attention. Here's some inspo:

2. Square-Necked Top

This is the perfect combo of trendy and flattering. A top with a square neck is so feminine and summery. It also sets the perfect stage for a statement necklace, or gives the spotlight to a daintier piece.

3. Colorful Tinted Glasses

If you want to make a statement this summer without putting too much thought and effort into it, then this is the perfect wardrobe addition for you. The great thing about finding a quirky pair of glasses is that you don't need to match them to anything else in your closet. They can be completely out of place but fit to whatever you've got. Pretty pastels and bright neons are in right now, just make sure you try them on before committing to a summer in shades of the color that you choose!

4. Slide Sandals

Slides have been in for quite awhile and they're likely to stick around, especially for the rest of the season. The great thing about these is they can be literally "slid" right into after a long day on your feet at work. A cute embellished or embroidered pair can give you the fancier look that you would want for a night out while a more relaxed pair can be worn for any casual occasion. Think: trendy sister of the Birkenstock-style sandal.
