Happy summer! Now that school is out for summer break, it’s time for a wardrobe update. We’re here to help you make the transition from spring to summer style!

The ultimate summer staple is a cute pair of shorts. Try pairing a flowy spring top with one of your new pairs of shorts for a casual yet put-together look that will keep you cool while looking cute! Add a pair of spring sandals or versatile boat shoes.

For dressier occasions, pairing a summer sundress and wedges with a spring jean jacket makes for the perfect look. Add some shine with a spring statement necklace or some drop earrings; adding jewelry will make your outfit more sophisticated and pulled-together.

The best and easiest way to make the transition from your spring wardrobe to your summer one is to utilize pieces like rompers and maxi dresses that are easy to style but always look as if you spent hours on your outfit. Pair your piece with summer-y flip flops or wedges, and add a floppy hat or some cool shades to give the outfit more depth. Lastly, throw on some rope bracelets or bangles for a beachy vibe!

The most important thing to remember when transitioning seasons is to keep an open mind and never stop experimenting. Shop your closet to find old clothes that you might’ve forgotten about and find new ways to style them with pieces from different seasons; you can give yourself a whole new look without spending any money! Good luck and have a great summer!
