With a new season comes a new look. If you’re struggling to find pieces to wear with the warmer weather, Closet and Storage Concepts is here to help. We want to help you create a closet you love, and that includes the clothes in them! Consider adding any of these items to your wardrobe and removing any old and out of date items for increased style for you and your closet.
With the increasing sunshine, now’s a great time to find the perfect shades. Whether you’re after an aviator or a cat eye, protect your pieces with the proper storage. Sunglasses protect your eyes; do the same for them by treating them with care. On the go, choose a soft-shelled case to store in your handbag or in the car. At home, you can opt for custom storage, especially if you have a larger collection that you want to protect.
- Jean Jacket
Jean jackets are a classic summer staple and are available in a variety of styles and washes, so you’ll be sure to find one that fits your needs. Denim is versatile enough that it can be dressed up or down, and it’s great for covering up during cool summer evenings.
A good pair of sneakers is the perfect way to appeal to the casual vibes of summer. Choose classic Chuck Taylors or a trendy slip-on variety such as Toms; the possibilities are nearly endless. If you’re not a sneaker gal, consider a versatile sandal instead. To house your shoes, consider over-the-door units, or shoe racks in your entryway or garage. Adjustable shoe racks are a great way for your closet to transition with you.
A summer scarf helps to add a bit of interest to jeans and a tee shirt. Scarves are also perfect if you need a cover up to protect against the sun, and you can even use them as makeshift blankets for spontaneous summer picnics! Opt for materials in linen or cotton versus wool. Use, or make, a scarf hanger to keep scarves in their place.
Sundresses are a quintessential item for summer. Like the denim jacket, sundresses are also versatile enough to be dressed up for work or down for a summer barbeque. With endless styles, cuts, and patterns you’re likely to find an option that’s perfect for you.
- White Tee
Switch out your darker palette in favor of a lighter one this summer, starting with your tee shirts. Replace long sleeves with short or sleeveless options to reflect the change in the weather. For a little spice, consider a classic striped option that will give your wardrobe a characteristically summery nautical look. Take this opportunity to purge any tops that no longer interest or fit you.
- Jean or Khaki Shorts
A great pair of shorts should see you through multiple summers. Jeans or khakis are a great material to look for, and can be mixed and matched with a variety of items, including many that can be found on this list. They can also be used as transitional pieces.
- Nude Nail
The nude nail is great in all seasons, but can look particularly good in the summer months, especially as your skin tans up a bit. If you have a bit of a crazy nail collection, look to organize your bathroom with under-the-sink options, or even try storing your polishes in over-the-door shoe holders.
If you’re planning a beach trip this summer, you’ll probably need a swimsuit. Be sure to check if you really need that cute new bikini, or if you already have one that might have been stored away for the winter. Once you bring out your swimsuit, be sure to store away winter items like coats, sweaters, and turtlenecks for next year.
- Strappy Heels
We listed a casual shoe choice above, but a formal option like a strappy heel in a bright or nude color is a classic summer staple for your wardrobe. Heels can be paired with a number of items on this list, from a t-shirt and shorts to a sundress. Use proper storage and organization solutions to keep your heels in good condition.
