    Why is it that in the season where we want to wear nothing, we end up hoarding the most stuff? Just think about the amount of swimsuits, shirts, dresses, and sandals taking up room in your closet (and try not to think about the stuff you haven't even unpacked yet from under your bed).

    There's a reason for all the clutter though: For us social overachievers, every warm day of the year is filled with activities, events, dates, and shindigs…which can make you feel like you need a new outfit for each new frolic. But, there's really no need. In an effort to streamline what we already have and come up with a game plan for the first shopping trip of the season, we've come up with this year's 30 Summer Wardrobe Essentials. Take a gander and commit this to memory, so you can focus on the truly important things about summer (like, say, trying every single margarita served in your neighborhood). Good luck!
