Three of my favorite summer wardrobe essentials are denim shorts, a black tank top, and a plaid shirt. Denim shorts are a given: We’ve all been wearing them since we were little. They’re the quintessential summer wardrobe piece and just about everyone has them! Enough said. A black tank top is super versatile and can pretty much be styled in endless different outfits; needless to say, a black tank top is a necessary component in my summer wardrobe. Finally, a plaid button-down shirt is awesome for those chillier summer days, and even better for nighttime bonfires. For today’s look, I’ve combined my three favorite summer wardrobe essentials for, basically, the best summer outfit ever.
To start off my easy summer outfit, I’ve tucked my black tank top into my shorts. I’m always mistaken for being younger than I am, and tucking in your shirt gives a bit of a mature touch. It also helps accentuate my figure a little more; I’m pretty petite, so anything I can do not to drown in my clothes, I will.
I kept it simple with the plaid button-down and simply layered it over the tank top. I choose a black and white option to keep the look cohesive, and chose a top with a more oversized fit to play up the comfy and casual feel my look already portrayed.
To glam things up, I’ve added some sassy laser cut block heels to my outfit. Can I rave about these for a minute? I received them as a birthday gift back in May, and I’ve been in love ever since! Not only are they super chic and adorable, but they’re also incredibly comfy. But the best part? They’re velcro! It sounds completely retro, but trust me, it’s a godsend. You all know those nights when you get back from a fun dinner or night out and can’t wait to take your shoes off… but instead of easily slipping them off, you’re forced to undo the intricate belt loop that is your shoe fastener. Guys… go velcro. It’s the best.
This is usually the part where I tell you how to recreate my look from your wardrobe. Beauties, if you want to do so, you know what to do! Grab my three favorite summer wardrobe essentials – denim shorts, a black tank top, and a plaid button-down – and take care of the rest. You’re set!
