The first day of summer has officially arrived, not that the hot weather has indicated anything different. Instead of staying in during the day, various summer activities usually keep us busy. From family vacations to day and rooftop parties with friends, most of us prefer casual comfort during the day over dressy attire (plus you don’t want to look as if you’re trying too hard at all times).  Your style doesn’t’ have to suffer simply because it’s casual. Sometimes the best sense of style is presented in the form of casual attire.

Here are six must-have items to ensure that your summer attire is nothing less than fab.

Maxi Dresses Are A Girls Best Friend For The Summer

One of the most inexpensive, simple, yet chic item that you can have in your closet this summer is a maxi dress. From straight to flow-y, solid colors to prints, maxi dresses are an ultimate go to item, when you want to look casually cute. Even better, you don’t have to over-do it by looking for other items to pair with your maxi. Just find one the compliments your shape and style.


If you’re MAXI-ed out and looking for another ‘onezie’ option, rompers are another must-have item for your day summer wear. The right romper can even be dressed up with the right pair of pumps to be worn out at night. Rompers are available in pants, shorts, or even below the knee style. Hot, simple, and chic, just like a maxi dress.

Bold Accessories

If you’ve ever read anything related to fashion or style, chances are you’ve seen an emphasis on accessories and how they can boost your style factor. The same goes for a casual ensemble. If you’re looking for a simple way to spice up your casual summer ‘fit, add accessories. Earrings, bracelets, and even the right handbag can go a long way.

Accented Sandals

Give a girl the right shoe and she can conquer the world. The right shoe, doesn’t necessarily have to consist of a six inch heel. Sandals with beaded or rhinestone accents can spice up a simple, day, ensemble.


With their on and off again popularity, wedges are gracing the closets of many women’s’ closets. If you’re looking to dress up your ‘fit, but prefer wearing something other than flats, try a cute wedge. Wedges will give you that intermediate look. You won’t be too casual not too dressed up.

Blue Jean Shorts

Blue Jean Shorts are a timeless summer item that may never go out of style. They can be cute and comfortable; and paired with the right top, you can change your look from day to night.

From short shorts to above the knee, there are a variety of blue jeans shorts for every fashionista.
