7 Summer Style Essentials
By Shelley Levitt
7 summer style essentials! Don’t stress over what to wear this summer! It’s the season for taking things easy, and that includes getting dressed. If you’ve got the basics down — good jeans, T-shirts and tanks — all you need are a few fresh pieces to liven up your wardrobe. We asked style pros for their top picks and pared down their choices to eight no-sweat summer essentials.
1. A sheer blouse
Super-versatile! Pair it over a lace bralet and denim shorts for an easy, eye-catching summer outfit. Or throw one over your swimsuit for a chic cover-up. Sheer blouses can be found everywhere from H&M and Free People to high-end designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim. I love them all! — Ali Levine, celebrity stylist, Los Angeles
Instead of the little black dress, the little white dress is an absolute must for summer. The misconception is that white makes you appear larger, but that simply isn’t true. White always looks fresh and modern and projects confidence. Pair a LWD with a nice faux glow and strappy sandals, and you’ll ooze sex appeal. — Hilary Kennedy, Dallas, Texas, TV host and fashion blogger
3. Nude or neutral espadrille wedge sandals
