Summer Wardrobe Essentials 2018

One or two new additions can give you the summer wardrobe essentials you need for 2018. Let color play a larger role and relegate black to an accent (but it can be a very cute accent!).

Summer Wardrobe Essentials: Four Tops

This week, we tackle the top half of your body, and present four new tops in great summer hues- at least one of which will strike your fancy. Here’s #1:

Summer wardrobe essentials requires colorful tops like the Rue Top from Inside Out Everyday in Cherry.
The Rue Top in Cherry Red

From Florida, Inside Out Everyday creates easy-to-wear tops in soft fabrics that you can wear inside your home, or outside as well. That’s where the name comes from. The cherry red “Rue” top boasts an asymmetrical cowl collar that is so attractive. The flattering cut shapes the top without revealing little bulges you want to make invisible. Longer front and back so it covers your butt, wear this top over jeans, or white or black pants or leggings. The soft rayon jersey fabric is machine washable. This top is an excellent travel choice as well.

This top is also from Florida’s Inside Out Everyday is perfect for those of you who love cooler tones like this deep lake blue, which boasts just a hint of green. It’s such a great color, and perfect not only for summer, but for all year round. A shallow scoop neck doesn’t plunge deep, keeping things modest.  The flattering cut gently shapes the feminine frame while offering extra room in the torso to hide little imperfections. Two pockets in the front add both style and function. Wear this top over jeans, white or black pants or leggings. The soft rayon jersey fabric is machine washable and great for travel.

Summer wardrobe essentials include the ruffle sleeve tee in turquoise by Necessitees
Turquoise Ruffle Sleeve Tee

The popular ruffle sleeve top from California’s Necessitees is 100% cotton and oh so comfy. Since the ruffle is a 3/4 sleeve, it is easy to wear without worrying about getting the ruffle in everything. The natural fit is perfect for those of us who haven’t quite gotten rid of our winter weight gain yet (hope springs eternal!). The top falls at the hips like a regular tee shirt – it is not a tunic. Machine washable and great for travel, the beach, a summer party, or a day out with your girlfriends. Pair it with your favorite jeans, white capris, or black leggings.

Ruffle Sleeve Crop Jacket

Made in California by Necessitees, this 100% cotton knit jacket is short and sweet, with oh so cute ruffle sleeves at the 3/4 length. The jacket falls right at the hips, and is tailored a bit to flatter the feminine shape. A perfect collar opens to show off your choice of top beneath. Wear any color or print here, and let the top be longer than the jacket to jauntily peek out beneath the jacket hem. Machine washable and perfect for our cooler evenings or air conditioned venues.

Seafoam Chalcedony For Harmony

Chalcedony is found world-wide and in a variety of colors. Chalcedony is said to bring harmony as well as to ward away negative energy.

We just received a lovely collection from Seattle’s Mary Freiberger including these four pendants. The seafoam color looks pretty on all skin tones.

Whether faceted, like the one on the far left, or set in a bezel as a smooth cabochon like the other three, the beautiful glow in these stones are simply lovely.

Each is on an 18″ gold-over-brass chain. The two larger stones are enhanced with a pearl and a charm, which the smaller pieces have the single leaf charm.

Here’s a perfect blouse for your new pendant. It’s the cape blouse from Testimony Los Angeles. This top can also be worn as a short dress by extending the inner sheath to its fullest length. The over-blouse is attached, and is very flattering as it hides all the little rolls you are striving to get rid of after our rainy winter.
