Summer Fashion Essentials for Women

Solid Portofino Shirt

Summer Fashion Express Portifino Shirt

Simple and chic, this piece pairs with jeans, skirts, or shorts. To switch up the look and cool off from the warm breeze, you can adjust its buttons. If you need some extra support, consider a Bra Cami for a comfortable, slimming effect. They come in colors for every occasion. Bright colors create a cheery, flirty look for a daytime garden party, while black and neutral colors are sophisticated and sweet. The best part? The top and cami will only cost you $40. Find them at Express.

The Famous Little Black Dress

Slimming and sexy, the little black dress is a favorite among women of all ages and styles. Lucky for you, they don’t have to hide at the back of your closet during the warmer months. You can repurpose them for any season and outing. They look equally chic and pulled-together at the beach or at the local club. If you choose one with a bit more coverage, such as the midi or maxi version, they are appropriate enough for family gatherings. Macy’s has loads of LBD looks to suit any woman’s individual taste.

The Trim Tank

Summer Fashion Essential Trim Tank Juicy Couture

The Juicy Couture chiffon tank is always a popular, highly sought-after item for summer. In white, red, or black, these tanks create a classic, sweet look. To stay cool during those heat waves, we recommend the cotton and rayon materials. They pair perfectly with shorts or a skirt, but you can add a creative twist by using an oversized one as a swimsuit cover. To find Juicy Couture clothing at a discount (and with free shipping), check out Zappos.
