Is there anything better than shopping for the new season? Personally, I get very excited about wardrobe updates in general, but shopping for spring/summer staples is something I always look forward to the most! Why staples you may ask? Well, because to me, staples are the core of your wardrobe and so you want to have a good selection of those. Once you have those staples down, it's easy to add a few trendy, off-the-moment pieces to make sure your wardrobe is next season ready!
What are some of my spring/summer wardrobe staples? For the most part, I tend to go for clothes that I will feel most comfortable in and most myself. Basically the kind of pieces that will be on constant rotation for the next few months and Saks Contemporary section is always my go-to shopping destination for these pieces.
Cute Denim Jacket by Rails - comfortable and stylish, I think what I love about denim jackets the most is how versatile they are. Great for day paired with casual bottoms and sneakers, they can be easily dressed up for night with accessories. Favorite night-time look is a denim jacket paired with a flowy silk dress, cute heels and a clutch. Another favorite is by 7 For All Mankind.
Wear Anywhere Mini by Rag & Bone (other favorites by 3.1 Phillip Lim and MSGM) - never not a fan of minis, when it comes to mini skirts I look for something with interesting details like studs and embellishment, or bright colors. Once again, a closet staple because it works so well with casual shoe styles and simple t-shirts for day, yet never fails to deliver for night when paired with dressier shoe and top options. This season, my mini staple find came via Saks. Love at first sight, I knew I found exactly what I was looking for the moment I spotted this tweed Rag & Bone skirt. Love the fabric, the color combination, and the texture, which works so well paired with cotton and silk tops alike. Love that!
White T by MSGM- can't imagine my spring/summer wardrobe without one! Wear with jeans or casual skirts for day, personally I love pairing t-shirts with dressier bottoms like high-waisted pants or silk midi skirts to help dress those items down a bit and make them more day-time appropriate (another favorite by Cinq à Sept).
Special Sneakers by Rag & Bone (also love these from Saks Contemporary section) - the shoe style I tend to wear the most, come summer time, I practically live in my sneakers. Never a fan of plain shoes, shopping for sneakers is not an exception. A always look for interesting details or embellishment that add a bit of drama or interest to sneakers. The sneaker-mules I am wearing in today's post are also a recent Saks find and my obsession du jour! Love the blue/white color combo, love the easy to wear slip on style, love how comfortable they are! Basically, LOVE!
