While everyone has their own personal style, there are still pieces that people will stock their wardrobe with and reach for every season. Summer is known for its easy, breezy classics, and Madewell is a great place to find pieces that are classic, yet still on trend for the season.

Summer Essentials with Madewell

We have a few more weeks of Summer remaining, so if you’re in need of a few wardrobe refreshers, here are a few Summer essentials that you should consider picking up from Madewell.

Dresses
Keeping cool during the Summer is a MUST, so obviously dresses should be on your wardrobe list. Because we are in a transitional period, however, I’d advise picking out dresses in darker prints, neutrals and more muted tones vs. super bright colors so that you can easily transition them into the Fall. Pair now with your favorite sandals, then switch over to ankle booties and layer a white or denim jacket over it.

Flare Denim
While flare denim is usually reserved for Fall outfits, now’s the perfect time to add a pair to your wardrobe. Pair them with an easy, retro style tee and sandals for now, and then swap those out for booties and a flowy, boho style blouse.

Leather handbags
In addition to jewelry, find a fun, leather handbag that you can wear everyday. Cognac and beige are great neutrals, but don’t be afraid to try a fun color as well.

White Denim
White denim that fits great, has a little bit of stretch without being tight and is not too thin is hard to find, but Madewell’s Perfect Vintage Jean is amazing. The premium denim also has a tapered leg, which makes it a perfect length for both flats and heels. Paired with a laidback, popover blouse in a punchy color is Summertime perfection.

Summer Essentials with Madewell

Denim Shorts
You can’t go wrong with a pair of denim shorts in a classic light or medium wash. These will be shorts that you live in and can pair with just about anything.

There’s so much that you can still add to your wardrobe this Summer, and Madewell has you covered with the classics!

Warmer temps are here, which means it’s time to get your Summer wardrobe together! How do we do this? By investing in a handful of foundational pieces that you can mix and match together with other pieces that you already own in your closet.

Summer Capsule Wardrobe with J. Jill

Building a capsule wardrobe (vs. just buying a ton of new clothes) will allow you to have pieces that you can throw on at any time throughout the season, so you will always feel chic and put together. J. Jill is known for their versatile pieces, so if you’re ready to make a Summer Capsule Wardrobe, here are a few pieces that I’d recommend.

Gauzy Button-Up Tunic
One can never have too many button-ups, and the textured gauzy feel of this button up makes it perfect for Summer. Wear with your favorite denim (a white cropped white pair is a must!), or make it do double-duty as a cover-up for the beach.

Cropped Denim
Jeans have always been a Summer staple, and it’s something that won’t ever change! You can wear them almost everywhere, so it’s best to find a pair that’s comfy but still flattering, that works with both heels and flats, and are a medium wash. Pair with cute blouses, or a linen dolman tee and patterned kimono for a look that can take you from brunch to a night out with friends.

A-Line Shirt Dress
Having a go-to dress that you can easily dress up or down is a must-have for Summer, and this super soft shirt dress is perfect for that. The collar gives it structure, and the button-hem detail makes it different from the rest. Bonus? It has pockets!

Maxi Skirt
Not really into jeans or shorts? Try a maxi skirt instead. They will still offer a lot of versatility in styling, but will also keep things comfy as well. Our favorite way to style is with a matching blouse (if available); just add a cool belt to help break things up!

When building your capsule wardrobe, think about the color palette that you want to work with so that you can invest in pieces that work really well together. It will make getting dressed so much easier!

In my (style) book, Summer style = bold colors and patterns, so what better way to inject a little “dopamine” style into your wardrobe than with J. Crew’s latest Summer drop. Neutrals are fun and closet staples, but Summertime style begs for bolder choices.

Don’t forget to add statement making jewelry to the mix. While J.Crew is known for their classic pieces, they’ve added in some really fun statement earrings like the white cotton raffia-wrapped chain earrings that Yamile is wearing, and the pink rectangle cotton raffia-wrapped earrings that Laura is wearing. Both styles are so on trend right now, but you will be able to wear them for many Summer seasons to come!

The colorful, print filled collection is so fun and playful, which is always a sartorial treat when it comes to getting dressed!

Looking for a laidback, more relaxed Summer style vibe that’s a step above your favorite tee and jeans? Try topping your next look with a Summer Blazer. Blazers are a wardrobe staple for most people, but for Summer, the must-have styles are slightly oversized and in a lightweight fabrications like cotton and linen. While they can most certainly be worn to work, this isn’t a stuffy, corporate style blazer.

Summer Blazers with Madewell

Madewell is known for its effortless aesthetic, so it only makes sense that they’d create a blazer that works perfectly for all of your Summer looks. Styled with cute shorts and a breezy tee or crop top, you can go girly with your look by finishing up your outfit with wedge sandals, or keep it minimalistic and casually cool with flat sandals and gold jewelry.
