If you want to upgrade your summer outfits and change the style game this sunny season, keep reading. Here’s a list of the must-have summer staples that every elegant woman should have in her wardrobe!

White Summer Dress

Nothing screams summer quite like a white summer dress. Because it’s often very lightweight, feminine and girly, you can dress it up or down or use it as an all-around dress. Ideal for a morning stroll in the city or even for dinner at night. Wear dainty gold accessories, add a pair of bright sandals and a cute crossbody bag to style it up. Or else, opt for flat mules, a white straw Panama hat and a mini handbag for a morning look!


These are summer’s go-to shoes. They pair well with almost everything, from jeans and shorts to dresses and skirts. Coming in different versions and highs, from platform espadrilles to wedges and flat ones. You can style them with a romper for daytime or with a mini sexy dress for a date night. They look great especially if you have tanned legs. In case you want to make your legs look longer and thinner, opt for espadrilles wedges and lace them up to create an elongated figure.

Basket bag

During the summertime, you need to have a good beach bag, but that doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of options, styles and versions of a beach bag. A straw basket bag it’s the perfect accessory for any summer look, giving a cool beachy vibe even in the casual jeans and t-shirt outfit. Pair a basket bag with basic everyday outfits or with upscale formal looks like a dress and high heel sandals.

Linen shirts 

In terms of fat breaks, linen is one of the best fabrics that you can wear when it is super hot outside. It’s lightweight and super breathable and for that reason, the linen shirt is one of the season’s favorites. Wear it as a beach or pool cover-up over your swimsuit or your bikini to give a relaxed oversized feeling. Linen is one of those materials that doesn’t come across as cheap-looking because it’s a natural fiber. Although it wrinkles a lot, this is the beauty of this fabric. 

Dressy shorts

Every elegant woman should have one pair of good-quality shorts in her summer wardrobe. Shorts that are not casual looking, like denim ones, can instantly elevate your appearance and make you look chic. If your budget allows it, invest in a pair of a more high-end designer that will last longer. Also, you can wear it as a separate item thus you will have a lot of options to style it. Throw a satin silk top, a linen shirt, or a bustier for a night look.
