Everything on My Wishlist for the Perfect Summer Wardrobe

As we navigate the transitional phase, one thing is certain: summer will be here before we know it. Currently, I am writing this from New York and although it’s a breezy 65 degrees, it’s projected to reach the 80’s in just a few days time. Thus, it’s essential to have a selection of tried-and-true pieces that are not only trendy but also able to withstand the heat. This curated wardrobe should seamlessly complement the spring pieces you already own, creating a versatile and stylish collection for the warmer months ahead. There’s a few items I have already gotten my hands on, along with plenty of others that are currently on my summer wardrobe wishlist. Ahead, you’ll find everything I think you need for the most fashionable season yet.

Everything on My Wishlist for the Perfect Summer Wardrobe

2024 summer wardrobe

1) Draped Top

This gorgeous asymmetrical top is less than $100 and easily a year-round staple. In fact, this is one piece I already purchased for my summer wardrobe and can vouch that it is incredibly versatile.

2) Corset

In honor of getting ready for the summer season, I placed a pretty hefty Victoria’s Secret order. By far, these corsets are my favorite find and I even went ahead and ordered 3 different colors!

3) Sheer Matching Set

Recently, I got to shop the COS showroom and walked away with this stunning open-knit top and skirt set. I love that I can wear them together or separately for a whole different vibe.

4) Drop Waist Dress

If you are looking for a summer love, consider a drop waist dress a must-have item of the season. This silhouette is not only flattering on everyone but it’s incredibly romantic!

5) Striped Bottoms

Fashion It girls have been wearing stripes for every occasion! While I do adore the cotton boxer shorts for a casual summer look, I love this pant alternative because you can wear them for both work and play.

6) Hot Pants

Shorts are always in during the summer, but this year, ultra short-shorts are taking center stage. These contrast-trim hot pants are so chic and I love the vintage vibe!

7) Tennis Skirt

If you read one of my more recent blog posts, you would know that tenniscore is heating up! I love how it is a more girly take on athleisure and you can bet that this minimalistic tennis skirt is already sitting in my cart.

8) Mesh Flats

Although it’s a more divisive shoe trend, there’s no denying that mesh flats are in. The unique, transparent aesthetic adds an impactful touch to any outfit, while also being perfect for beating the heat.

9) Casual Sneakers

For toned down ensembles, a trusty pair of sneakers comes in handy. It looks like summer 2024 is going to be another year of the sambas but if you are looking for something different (and more affordable), these vintage-inspired kicks from Reebok are so comfortable!

10) Textured Bag

It’s time to bring out your straw and raffia handbags for the summer season! If you are itching to invest in a new style, may I bring this one to your attention. Not only does it have the coveted texture, but it also has a more contemporary silhouette that allows you to style it with a wide variety of looks.
