Shop Now: Summer Must Haves
Summer might not officially start for another month, but the heat has got us excited about all the upcoming adventures and holiday getaways. The traveling, the beach, the parties, makes summer arguably everyone’s favorite season, and we love all the lightweight clothing that come with it. Although all the accessories of winter and spring might be fun to pile on, let’s face it: as Travel Republic iterates, we long for the days that we can leave the layers behind.
We all have our own summer essentials and favorites, but we’re curious as to what the experts are recommending. The editors of Lyst have compiled several useful collections to inspire our summer wardrobe, with one suggesting that you “embrace the freedom of endless summer days and nights and go for sexy Off-The-Shoulder tops, Baywatch style swimsuits and micro mini shorts,” from brands such as Nasty Gal, TopShop, Free People and more.
No matter which brands you shop for, just be sure that you have the following items to survive the season.
A cotton jumpsuit
Some women seem to be under the impression that you need to have legs for days to pull off a one-piece like this, however Poplin Style reminds us that even the petite ladies can look amazing in a jumpsuit, as long as it isn’t too baggy or generally overwhelms their frame. Wear it with a belt cinched at the waist during a city break or a bikini for tonight’s pool party; the jumpsuit is a stress-free way to look sexy all day long.

Celebrities are totally loving these silky Japanese cover ups, and who can blame them? The material keeps you cool in the heat, which is perfect for the beach, for errands and brunch, and plenty of other occasions. Plus it makes a powerful statement and elevates your outfit to a whole new level.

A straw fedora
Protection against harmful UV rays is important, especially during this time of year, but if you’re not exactly crazy about the big floppy hats, try on a straw fedora for size. Stylist of the Kardashian clan Monica Rose tells In Style that these Panama hats are chic and will definitely remain a summer staple for years to come.
Now you are educated on the hottest things to make your summer unforgettable and of course stylish. Hit up your favorite stores to find tons of summer must-haves and then don’t forget to hit the beaches and summer parties to show off your new looks. Happy Summer!
