Summer is finally upon us, which means warmer weather, outdoor activities and of course summer style. Whether you are home for the summer, working, taking classes at school or traveling, basic summer staples will always be a necessity. Some of my favorite summer staples shine through in this Fashionista’s casual look: a basic, breezy black tank top, neutral mini wedge sandals, dainty silver jewelry and basic ankle jeans.

There is no better investment than a quality pair of ankle jeans. They can take you from morning to night, provide slimming qualities and allow you to do a little rolling around in the grass if necessary. I also love light wash denims during the summer months because the sun doesn’t make your legs super hot and your overall outfit gets a fresh and causal look.

I love the way this Fashionista created contrast between her denim jeans and basic black tank top. Her tank top is also the perfect piece for this casual outfit because it dips down in the back to create a high-low effect. She keeps the look neutral with a short wedge sandal and ties it all together with some tortoise sunnies and silver jewelry for added shine. This look is also great because you can add just about anything to it; throw on a jacket and head to dinner, or swap the sandals for some sneakers and you’re sporting event chic.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My advice is comfort over everything. You feel good, you look good. Even though it’s summer, I love wearing black. Black and white match everything, making neutral dressing super easy and always in style.”
