Not Too Late for Summer Basics

As we head into August, the return to school bell may have begun to bellow, but summer isn’t quite over yet. The sun is still shining; the days are still warm, and, yep, it’s humid. So there’s still time to bust out those summer basics. So often, summer clothes are geared more toward function than fashion, but you can still be stylish and stay cool in these go-to pieces.

First, the little white dress, preferably in cotton, is not just a summer staple; it’s also a stylish classic. Consider it your warm-weather alternative to the Little Black Dress. Just as your LBD is great for going out, an airy, breathable frock is just as perfect for dinner and drinks on the deck, an evening out on the town, or an end of summer BBQ. For date night, you can’t beat a simple white sheath or frilly sundress.

While jean shorts are great for a slew of outdoor activities in summer, full-length denim can be downright stifling once the temperature hits 80+. Instead, go with a relaxed slack, like a linen drawstring or a cropped canvas pant. Keep the fit breezy and roll up the legs for a slouchy-chic look. Wear them with tanks, tees, or button-downs.

Speaking of tops, t-shirts are the ultimate summertime staple and can be simple or statement-making. Of course, having tees in neutral colors like white, gray, black, and navy will see you through the summer. But, consider something a bit bolder, like tie-dye or a graphic t-shirt to make your end-of-summer style splash. Just be sure to keep the silhouette proportionate, balance out loose bottoms with a more fitted tee and pair oversized shirts with leggings or shorts.

Skip over the flip-flops and go with a sturdier sandal for the end of summer. Sporty sandals with thick, treaded soles help protect your feet and provide a bit more support than tired old slip-ons and mules. Opt for a pair with Velcro straps for easy on/off and feel free to pair them with any of your casual looks, even that little white dress, for an athleisure take on feminine style.

However, if you’re tired of maintaining your pedicure come August, skip the sandals and opt for sneakers to see out the season. Like a sports sandal, you’ll want a more athletic shoe instead of a canvas, thin-soled lace-up because it’s been a long summer and your feet need support. Luckily, there are a ton of graphic and bold sneakers to make a style statement. Again, pair them with all of the basics highlighted above.

To complete any summertime ensemble, ditch your leather tote and grab a straw bag. Wicker bags are right on trend this summer, but you can also find them in second hand and thrift shops. Let’s face it, a straw handbag has a limited lifespan in the style season and now is the time to carry it with pride before it’s back to backpacks and shoulder bags.

As we near the end of summer, give those summer basics one more sashay around the sartorial block and have fun mixing the fashionable with the functional in these last golden days.
