Okay, I’m a bit late to the game with this summer capsule wardrobe, but I still wanted to squeeze it in. The heat will be around for a while still here in the Southwest, but I know some cities will be transitioning to Fall sooner than we think.

For those of you who are already preparing for cooler months, know that this wardrobe will transition beautifully as the weather gets chillier.

  • Going-out Crop Top: Going out is essential for summer fun! Pick up a sexy crop-top that you can pair with a skirt or jeans for a night out on the town. Here’s a high-neck crop top, a beautiful floral mesh one, a lacy option, a high-neck cutout choice, and also a bustier-type top. Here’s a sexy keyhole crop top from Topshop.
  • Casual Crop: When summer heat is in full swing, you’ll want a casual crop top to allow for maximum breathability. I like this choice from Topshop. This cropped t-shirt is perfect for summer weather. If you want a cami crop top, I love this knot-front option. Here’s another twisted front crop top, this one with a high neck.
  • Military Button-Down: This may seem a bit heavy for summer, but you can find more wearable materials for hot weather. This option from Topshop is loose and light.
  • Off-The-Shoulder: I did a whole post about off-the-shoulder tops! This striped one is fun and summery.
  • Ringer Tee: Funky, retro, and can be worn with just about any look. This one from Topshop has colorblocked sleeves. This one from Urban Outfitters comes in a wide variety of colors.
