Summer is finally right around the corner! Longer days, brighter mornings, bluer skies and just a good time overall! Get out those essentials and to be pool- or beach-ready (safely, of course). And if your style approach has minimalist leanings and you’re not fond of bright, summery colors, don’t fret. From simple yet chic sunglasses to a one-piece swimsuit moment, these must-haves are those that you will be needing for the chill summer days you’re definitely going to have.
1. One-piece Swimsuit: Bea Alonzo
Black swimsuits are always going to be elegant. Yup, even over the seemingly “trendy” styles you splurged on two summers ago.
2. Slip Dress: Gabbi Garcia
A simple white dress is the perfect thing to slip on over your bathing suit. Consider this another way to wear your fave slinky ‘90s staple.
3. Midi Skirt: Liza Soberano
We’re sure you’ll have denim shorts packed and ready to go for your trips ahead, but a great alternative is an understated midi-skirt. This piece with your bikini top of choice will create a fashionable ensemble that is great for hanging out.
4. Sandals: Julia Barretto
Simple sandals in neutral colors can last you years—if you opt for a good quality pair and the right style, that is. Easy does it, as these can be worn with literally anything.
5. Hat: Issa Pressman
A cute floppy hat in a monotone hue is a great add-on to a simple one-piece suit.
6. Sunglasses: Yassi Pressman
We definitely cannot forget about protecting our eyes from the glaring summer heat. Shades are a must-have all summer long, whether you’re on the beach or not, and this dark round-rimmed pair will help you keep it cool.
