The days are longer, and are gradually getting warmer. The days of thick scarves and long sleeves are few and far between as spring quickly becomes summer.

That means it is time for a wardrobe update! Whatever you do, don’t get overwhelmed with wardrobe transitions. You get to revamp your closet. To some this means shopping; and to others it feels like an overwhelming task to complete.

Just like any season, there will always be a few staples to rely on and build from. This summer will be no different.

First, you’ll need to fill your closet with sexy, ruffled, and lightweight tops.
Fun and flirty fabrics are a must-have this season. Stick with fabrics
that are more comfortable and breathe better in the hot, humid air. You
can beat the heat by pairing these tops with a skirt for work. Or, for
a night out, try a dressy top with jeans and pumps. You can even get
away with shorts and sandals!

Another staple this summer will be interesting skirts. From
bright minis to modern, asymmetrical styles, make sure you keep things
colorful! If you are making your skirt the focal point of your outfit,
pick shoes and jewelry that do not compete for attention. When you
decide to show off a pretty summer skirt, let it stay in the spotlight.
