It’s finally summer, and if you’re anything like us over at HerStyle Media then you love summer time just as much! Summer is the perfect time to take a moment for yourself, vacation, work to make a few extra coins or simply do nothing and relax before the upcoming school year.

What is summer without a little shopping eh? Below I’ve compiled a list of go-to clothing items and wardrobe staples for you to pick up over the next couple of months for your closet.

Duster: For those that are unaware, duster jackets are a cross between a cardigan and thin blazer. It is the material of a blouse and can also be the length of a coat. Dusters come in an array of colors and is perfect for the summer because it is thin enough to keep you cool, and also stylish enough to layer over any look.

White Tee: White tee’s are a no brainer for the summer because they are light on the body and can be dressed up or down. If you’re feeling fancy like Bey, you can wear them with some leather pants to an outing at night, or you can wear a white tee with some leggings or loose denim shorts during the day.
