Make the most of your summer with these 6 must-have style essentials

And just like that summer is almost here, and with the first long weekend of the season behind us, it’s about *damn* time to plan your Summer outfits (we can't seem to get that song out of our heads, thanks TikTok.) The official start of summer begins on Tuesday, June 21, and brings vacations, backyard BBQs, sunny weather and more.

With so much to look forward to, this highly coveted season is your chance to show up in style—wearing the best looks 2022 has to offer. Whether you’re traveling across town or across the country, hitting the pool for the first time in a while, or gathering with your favorite people at a picnic, you know you can’t wait to break out your favorite summer tops, sandals, dresses, shorts, and swimwear.

If you need some inspiration for your Summertime outfits, you’ve found the place. And while you’ll probably be able to repurpose some of your current wardrobe, you can add a few knockout pieces to fill in the gaps. Ahead, six no-fail essential size-inclusive outfit pieces that’ll ensure you're the best-dressed at all of your summer events.

LBD Refresh

The little black dress - a timeless classic

Class & Sass Dress in Black - Momma Trend Boutique

Black is the definition of chic elegance. And since this style relies on a minimalist silhouette with spaghetti straps, a midi length, and side slit, it’s ideal for outdoor events. While classic black always works well, don’t be afraid to experiment—you might add a colorful handbag, fun heeled sandal or denim jacket and sneakers to make it more casual. 

White Hot Denim

White jeans for summer

Plans for a warm weather get-together? Jeans and a cute top always pairs well, but the combo really pops when you add white denim to the mix. With summer in the air, fresh whites with added pops of color bring a seasonal flair to an otherwise casual look. Amp things up with a colorful tank top or blouse, a unique bag, fun footwear and jewelry such as a layered necklace or beaded earrings.

Essential Carry All

Summer Tote Bags

Bobbi Crossbody Bag, All Good Striped Woven Tote, Coastal QT Straw Bag   - Momma Trend Boutique

Summer is the perfect time to break out your favorite bags and totes. Whether you're heading to the market or the beach, when it’s exceptionally hot out you'll need to pack some essentials for the day— think sunscreensunglasses, water bottle, towels, etc. Because you can restyle a bag easily with a pair of jeans, sundress or shorts with a tee, you’ll get plenty of mileage out of a quality tote bag this summer.

Anything But Basic

Versatile White Tank Top

Good as Gold Tank - Momma Trend Boutique

Lean into versatility and ease this summer with an elevated tank top that truly does it all. While this classic knit top clearly looks great on its own, add some sunnies and create a wow look using this top as your base, you can really freestyle here: Go with a floral wide leg pant for a fun, whimsical ’fit, or pair with denim and a blazer for an effortlessly refined look.

Make a Splash

Size inclusive swimwear

Sail Away Swimsuit, Ride the Waves Swimsuit, Leopard Print Swim Bottoms & Smocked Swim Top in Black - Momma Trend Boutique

From bright prints to bold neutrals, comfortable yet stylish swimwear is the epitome of winning, and pairing your favorite suit with an unfussy layer and a pair of cute sandals or wedges is a low-effort styling trick with ultra stylish results. And don't forget your confidence, when you feel amazing, you look amazing! The result is a fun summer filled with pool days and beach parties.

Sky is the Limit

Platform Sandals

Naked Feet Flow, available in multiple colors, Naked Feet Geo in Leopard Print - Momma Trend Boutique

Leave your flip flops at home this summer and opt for a stylish, unexpected sandal: the platform. This option is just as comfortable as your flats, thanks to a padded footbed and flexible sole, but adds so much in terms of style. (Who says comfort has to be boring?) The availability of colors and prints makes enough impact on its own, so don’t overthink your accessories; a simple bag and sunglasses are just right here.
