1.  High Waisted Shorts

High waisted anything has been on trend since the beginning of 2015, and it’s no wonder that high waisted shorts have also become a necessity as well. From VS models like Taylor Hill to celebrity style icons like Rihanna and the Kardashians, high waisted shorts have proven themselves to be an important summertime staple.

In my outfit, these vintage-looking dark green shorts were paired with a Lynt staple: the bodysuit. The added scarf and the hat makes it a fun and comfortable outfit to wear just about anywhere plus, it makes me feel like a Pokémon ranger, so there’s that

2.  The Maxi Skirt

Ladies, let’s get real: maxi skirts are the B-O-M-B. 

Aside from our monthly troubles you know what I’m talking about 😉, these pieces are some of the most versatile since it can come in endless colors, fabrics, and styles like this black and white one I wore.

3.  The Little Black Romper

So, in the world of women’s fashion, we have the LBD (little black dress) and the LWD (the little white dress), but I think the LBR (little black romper) should be one, too, because just like it’s well-known dressy-er siblings, the LBR is already a stand alone outfit on its own.

Whether you decide to wear cool jewelry or just a cool pair of shoes, the LBR will always make you look like a style star.

4.  The Set

Sets are so much fun. Not only does it usually combine two or more of the year’s hottest trends hello high waisted shorts, just like the LBR, you already have your Insta-worthy summer OOTD. All you really need are some cool shades, a fun hat, and a pair of similar colored shoes to make your summer outfit more cohesive.

5.  The Bodysuit

If the first two summer staples weren’t enough to show you why you need to invest in one, well you really need to get one. 

Right now.

Bodysuits not only enhance your curves, they also look good with just about anything and on anyone. Plus, if you’re into versatile pieces like me, snag a bodysuit that could work as a one piece that you can use for that day at the beach.
