30 Summer Wardrobe Essentials We Love

Here's the honest truth: Our closets are forever a work in progress. And thank goodness for that! Everyday. we ditch something old and introduce something new, so we have a fresh perspective on what our "look" is all about...or could be. And while the slouchy trouser or platform of the moment may come and go, every gal worth her salt has to have a sound sartorial foundation from which to draw ideas—and some damn good outfits. We started with 25, but realized that in order to assemble the most comprehensive list of wardrobe necessities, 30 well-chosen items was more realistic (and hey, more fun!). From relaxed jackets, classic khaki bottoms, and solid flat sandals to pretty woven necklaces, a perfect sundress, and slick white jeans, our summer wardrobe list possesses every piece of the hot-weather puzzle...and offers timeless items at every price-point that will last and last for summers to come.
