The Classic Summer Staple Every Girl Should Have in Her Closet

 

Though we officially have a few weeks to go, the summer mood is in full swing, which means the official closet takeover of all-things white. While I've always been a white all year-round kind of girl, there's something about white in the summer that I love. It sets a light, breezy mood, it's easy to pair with any and every color and for events and parties, you really can't go wrong. river island white

This season, I'm partnering with River Island to bring you some of my favorite white seasonal pieces to to shop just in time for summer. river island white

My white linen dress is a classic summer staple that I believe every girl should have in her closet and I love that that the fun take on the one sleeve, off-the shoulder makes for elevated simple. I paired it casually with platform sneakers, but it's also the perfect piece to take from day to night with a pair of heels (love these for a pop of color!)

Shop dresses:

I love the crochet detail on this piece! It's one of my favorite summer fabrics.

This dress would make the perfect cover up. Always a sucker for a midi length.


Shop tops:

This cropped, knotted blouse is a great pair for anything high-waisted.

Also love a clean, simple graphic tee. Perfect with this River Island denim!


Shop pants:

The tie-waist paper bag pant has made it's comeback + these are perfect for work or a night out.

Going on vacay soon? You need these!

      I think a ruffle detail has to be one of my favorite styles to wear!

    I love that it’s a staple piece but a twist on it at the same time! A little white dress is always a good idea, but those sleeves and ruffles make this piece especially fun!

    Such pretty ruffles on this dress. I’m totally with you — I love white in the summer. I almost bought a white dress for a June wedding, but that’s a no-no.

    I haven’t owned a linen piece in years and it’s honestly such a shame. It’s so lightweight for summer! What a beautiful dress 🙂

      You know my closet isn’t really full of linen per se, but I always, always have a white linen dress in there for summer! 🙂
