Now that it’s warm out and the full heat of summer is on the horizon, you may find yourself with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. We took three spring/summer wardrobe essentials – overalls, lightweight pants and a bodysuit – and styled them for balmy 70-degree days and hot-hot-hot 90-degree days alike. Make your spring wardrobe work for the new season with these tips!
Overall, a Great Look
First up, we went for the most popular item of the season – overalls! For those days when the weather’s still sticking in the 70s, we layered these denim cut-off overalls over a ribbed sweater (oh hey, 90s fashion) and threw on a quilted, satin bomber from Topshop. To amp this look up for 90-degree days, we swapped out the warmer sweater for a fun knit crop top in a bright color. Throw on some sweet shades with metallic sandals and you’re ready for summer fun!
Earn Your Stripes
Our next look is based around a great printed pant from Mango. Whether you prefer slim-fit or wide-legged, a pair of lightweight pants is one of those key wardrobe essentials for your office style – they’re a great way to look dressed up without suffering from the summer heat! For cooler spring days, we threw on a cropped denim Carmar button-up and a flowy H&M trench. Then, to make the look work for summer, we paired them with a halter-neck crop top from Charlotte Russe and added a pop of color with chartreuse mules from Forever 21.
Our last look uses another one of this year’s favorite basics – the bodysuit! What we love about this on-trend piece is that it can be worn in so many different ways. No matter your style, there’s a way to rock a bodysuit! For spring, we threw on a pair of shredded boyfriend jeans from Express, dressed it up with nude Jessica Simpson heels and pulled the whole thing together with a lightweight jacket by Elevenses. To take this piece into summer and give it a whole new vibe, we added a bright, Hawaiian print circle skirt, statement beads and wedges.
With the right layers and accessories, you can build a closet full of wardrobe essentials that will keep you outfitted all year round. Stop into your local Buffalo Exchange to find everything you need! Still feeling stuck? Just ask one of our talented stylists for help!
