Serena's Summer Staples

Serena's Summer Staples

Posted by Serena Javens on Jul 18th 2022

No summer wardrobe is complete without the essentials. They're those small little details that can either make or break an outfit. Whether you need a closet refresh or revamp, I've created a small list of some of my favorite summer essentials for 2022 that you can add to your wardrobe!

Versatile Dress:




Everyone needs a little black dress in their wardrobe, but it's also a great idea to have a versatile summer dress that can be worn from day to night and styled in many different ways. A white dress or a black dress would be a great option to start with. Right now, I am loving the ribbed midi dress trend and I was able to style it in three different ways already. For the first option, I went somewhat dressier, the second is more of a sporty look and the last look is super casual. You can also add it some heels and a jacket if you want to elevate your look even more!

Cutout Swimsuit:

Nothing says summer essentials like a swimsuit that makes you feel like a million bucks and this year's summer trends definitely include cutout swimsuits! Whether you like cutouts or not, every girl needs a swimsuit that makes her feel confident, and like she's having her hot girl summer. I've also added an arrangement of some of my other favorite must-haves for the pool or beach like self-tanner, a beach bag, my favorite straw hat, neutral sandals, scrunchies, sunnies and denim shorts.

Straw Bags/Totes:

You don't have to have a straw bag just for vacation — a bag that can be used during the summer besides going to the beach is a great essential to have. The rattan or straw texture really screams summer and it adds that boho element to any outfit. I personally love the rattan material for crossbody bags and the straw or jute textures for totes. Whether they're big or small, they're always a summer staple.
