Gwynnie Bee’s Summer Essentials
One of the best things about summer is the wardrobe! Summer clothes are the definition of ease and comfort. With temperatures that make it hard to leave the house make sure you are keeping cool while looking fashionable! Gwynnie Bee’s maxi dresses, tank tops and skirts are the answer to the perfect summer looks all while allowing you to be comfortable and cute for the hot summer months.

Can I just ask if there is anyone who doesn’t LOVE a maxi dress? They are a great summer uniform when all you want to do is try and stay cool. Gwynnie Bee has some absolutely beautiful options and if you choose to keep what you order the price point is amazing. They are the absolute best for dressing down or dressing up. You can wear to the beach or pool and then wear straight to dinner. They look amazing with a wedge, a strappy heel, gladiator sandal, flip flop or espadrille. Throw on a panama or floppy hat with tote or grab a clutch with a bold lippie (a red statement lip and sun kissed skin for the summer….yassssss honey).
Gwynnie Bee calls this tank ‘street chic’….ummm SOLD! Funky and fun is exactly what a tank should add to your outfit. Add some statement pieces into your closet and take your wardrobe from Blahhh to BAM! When you think of summer you want relaxed, comfortable and I must have sleeveless. You can pair a tank with jeans, shorts, flowy skirts, pencil skirts, capri pants or overalls! There are so many cute tops your biggest issue is deciding which ones will make the cut! Make sure to check out the yellow peplum top in the collection…it’s gorgeous.
The next best thing to a maxi is a fabulous dress! Dresses are the perfect staple in any summer wardrobe because not only are they flattering on all figures they are weather friendly. A good dress is always on trend yet equally timeless. Investment pieces help build your closet and having a few versatile dresses qualify as money well spent. Adding a blazer or cardigan can keep your look fresh and give you different ways to style it up. Cinch the waist with a cute belt or add a fun scarf to accessorize. Just like the maxi, dresses provide hundreds of alternatives to keep your outfits looking new.
This skirt is giving me LIFE! You have to love a good print like this…life is to short to wear boring clothes. It’s all about color and interest. Why not wear something that is going to provoke a conversation?! Elastic waists and jersey knit defines the perfect summer essential. The length on this skirt is so good, longer than a pencil but not quite ankle length which give your sandals or wedges the chance to shine! Super soft and super comfortable, does it get any better?? I don’t think so.
What better way to top off your outfit than by a long flowy vest, kimono or lightweight jacket. Light weight summer layers add interest and flavor to any outfit. Sometimes a pair of jeans and tank top or t-shirt can come to life by adding a cute jacket or sheer layer. I virtually live in kimono jackets all summer and have one on hand typically at all times. Going between extreme outdoor weather to extreme air conditioners indoors is maddening…throwing on a light jacket is my go to.
