10 Summer Fashion Essentials

     Today I’m concluding my series of seasonal fashion essentials post with ten summer fashion essentials.  If you missed the rest, you can find my fall fashion essentials here, my winter fashion essentials here, and my spring fashion essentials here.  I’ve had so much fun rounding up my favorite pieces that I think you need each season and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these posts!  Just a reminder, each image contains the respective product link, so you can shop any piece you like by clicking on it!  Enjoy!

1. Stylish Sandals

     Sandals are definitely my favorite type of shoe to rock during the summer.  There are millions of sandals out there, but my favorite pairs are from Jack Rogers, TargetJ.Crew Factory, and Steve Madden.

2. Pretty Coverups

     Coverups are a necessity when going to the pool or beach, and a cute one ensures that you’ll be looking chic in all your post-swim adventures.  My favorite coverups online are from Madewell, J.Crew, and Lilly Pulitzer.

3. Bright Shorts

     A simple tee combined with a bright pair of shorts and some sandals makes for an easy and adorable summer outfit.  My favorite places to purchase bright shorts are J.Crew Factory, Old Navy, and Lilly Pulitzer.

4. Sunglasses

     I love a good pair of sunnies.  They’re perfect not only to block the harsh sun rays from your eyes, but also to hide your makeupless eyes on the way to and from the beach, pool, or lake.  My favorite pairs online are from Ray-Ban, Kate Spade, and Krewe.


5. Comfortable Tee Shirts

     I love to wear big, soft tees with Nike shorts and Chacos during the summer.  This ensemble is perfect to wear on the way to the pool, to a friend’s house, while traveling, or just around your house.  My favorite companies that sell tees that are both cute and comfortable are Jadelynn Brooke, United, and Southern Tide.  You can use my code “FLHS” for 15% off at Jadelynn Brooke here and “apocketfullofprep_15” for 15% off at United here.  My favorite designs from all three brands are shown and linked below.

6. Cute Tanks

     The perfect summer tanks and camis can be dressed up with some white jeans and wedges or dressed down with a cute pair of shorts and some sandals.  Tank tops have always been a summer go to for me because the minimal sleeves make me much cooler!  Some of my favorite tanks this season are from J.Crew Factory, LOFT, Forever 21, and H&M.

7. Sundresses

     Sundresses are the easiest summer outfits and always make you look super put together. I love wearing them when walking through new cities, out to dinner, and to church services on Sundays.  My favorite places to buy sundresses are H&M, J.Crew, LOFT, and Old Navy.

8. Trendy Chokers

     I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of chokers out and about already, they’re all the rage this season!  I love the dainty, classic looking ones, especially the simple gold or velvet options from Francesca’s, DDDBeads, H&M, and Forever 21.  Most chokers online are super cheap, but I also have a code, “faith15”, that you can use for 15% off at DDDBeads!

9. Fun Swimsuits

     What’s summer without a few trips to the beach, pool, and/or lake?  You obviously need some cute swimsuits to wear to these fun locations.  My favorites are from Athleta, TargetJ.Crew, and J.Crew Factory.

10. Comfortable Sandals

     To pair with your big tees and Nike shorts when you’re lounging around, running errands, or taking a little trip to the pool in the summertime, you need some comfortable sandals that are easy to slip on on the go.  My go to comfortable sandals are from Chaco and Rainbow, but I’ve recently had my eyes on a pair of Birkenstocks.

  1. Love everything you chose. Especially the dresses, chokers, and bathing suits and giggled when I read the comfortable shoes one because I too have all three of those pairs reserved for the ‘big tee and Nike running shorts’ look.


  2. Summer can be a particularly difficult season to dress for. This is really useful and detailed post about the summer essentials. Sandals, sunglasses, shorts, sundresses and t shirt are all my go-to choice during this summer!!
