Summer flings need not only apply to your love life. In this case, we’re referring to your closet and the pieces it’ll be flirting hard with this season. The objects of its affection? Clever wardrobe updates like boxy crop tops, billowy culottes, block heels, and more, all of which will make it easy to move on from those sartorial crushes of years past.
If you're wont to grumble and gripe, "I have nothing to wear," this reboot is for you. We're retiring eight hot-weather staples — like bustiers, slouchy handbags, and micro minis — and swapping in heavy hitters guaranteed to spice up your look. Find your new style paramours ahead. Because, why settle for one romance when you can have many? All’s fair in love and war(drobe).
