Hayden's Top 10 Summer Closet Staples

Summer is practically here, and what better way to welcome the sun-soaked days than upgrading your wardrobe with Hayden's top summer must-haves? Whether you're lounging by the pool, hitting the beach, or enjoying a night out, these chic pieces and timeless accessories are guaranteed to make a splash!

1. Perfect White T-Shirt

The ultimate versatile piece is a white t-shirt. Believe it or not, Hayden recommends the Hanes boy's white t-shirts for their simplicity and comfort. Pair it with shorts, skirts, or layer it under a sleeveless dress for an effortlessly chic look. 

2. Pair of Gold Sandals

Add a touch of glamour to your summer outfits with a pair of gold sandals. Hayden loves Ancient Greek Sandals, and she also suggests checking out Etsy for dupes! These sandals are not only stylish but also comfortable for all-day wear – perfect for both casual and dressier occasions.

3. Pair of Shorts

Every summer wardrobe needs a great pair of shorts. Whether you prefer the sporty look of Adidas shorts (we have some in the shop!) or the timeless appeal of denim cut-offs, one or more go-to options is essential for staying cool looking during the hot days. 

4. Fun Bangles

What better way to accessorize your summer outfits than with colorful bangles! Hayden loves adding a playful touch to her looks with eclectic bangles that can be mixed and matched – a unique flair!

5. All-White Dresses

An all-white dress is a summer must-have. Whether it’s a flowing maxi dress or structured midi, an all-white look can easily be dressed up or down. Arguably, this might be the most perfect piece for summer with it’s unwavering versatility! 

6. Cashmere Wrap (or Sweater)

A cool summer evening may call for something to take the chill off, and a cashmere wrap (or lightweight sweater) is a perfect. It’s soft, cozy, and adds a touch of luxury to your wardrobe. Opt for the natural colors that can complement any outfit, ensuring you stay warm, and equally important, stylish. 

7. Functional Sunglasses

Shades are a non-negotiable season essential – stylistically and practically. This might be the only time Hayden does not recommend Vintage…instead, Hayden suggests choosing sunglasses that are UV protected. Find a pair that suits your face shape and can be paired with various outfits and you’re sure to look chic in the sun! 

8. Day to Night Bag

A versatile bag that takes you from day to night is essential for any time of year. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, Hayden loves a straw handbag, like the one on the left, and/or a pop of color. It’s spacious enough for a handful of daytime essentials and elegant enough for an evening out.

9. Sleek Slip Dress

As far as Hayden's concerned, a sexy and simple slip dress is a must have for summer 2024!

10. Sun Hat

Stay protected from the sun while brimming with hats always adds a chic touch to an outfit. They're perfect for beach days, pool days, or even a bad hair day! Hayden's friends at ByVLada and Sing Hat Company make her favorite styles!

With Hayden's top ten summer staples in your closet, you're ready to take on the season with style and confidence.
