How To Shop For Summer Essentials Wisely


Essentials are the items that will be there when all the trends go out of season/style. That is why building a wardrobe full of essentials first is my main priority for my personal style clients. Summer time is here which means it is time to start budgeting, investing, and shopping for your summer essentials. No need to feel like you have to drop hundreds of dollars if that is not in your budget.

"Shop for quality not quantity"! – Christina

An excellent summer essential piece to buy is a bathing suit. Many of us are afraid to wear a bathing suit because we haven't invested time to see which one will work for our body. Depending on your needs you may need to spend more or less. A great quality bathing suit can last you years- 20 or more beach trips or over a dozen pool parties! So how do you shop wisely when your budget level is low?

#1: Invest in Time - Take some time out of your day to really get into the racks and find what you like. Don't go in with only a few minutes to spare or rushing with the kids. Get a minimum of 5 items in two different sizes to shorten the try on time- get your real size and your comfortable size.

#2: Know the Material – In the summer time the right fabric can help you look and feel amazing. The wrong fabric can make you look like a sweaty mess and show too much. My biggest question from clients is "how do I stay cool but look great"?. One of my top tips is to find clothes with great breathable fabrics. Staying cool in the summer is important for many reasons that include health, fashion and comfort. The goal is to allow the maximum amount of air through the fabric so the body feels cooler. Look for these fabrics when shopping: Linen•Cotton•Lace•Light Silk• Georgette•Chambray!

#3: Plan according to your Itinerary – Instead of buying everything cute item in your favorite store shop according to your summer itinerary. Going on vacation? Planning adult pool time or parties for the kids, shop for that occasion. Get the most wear out of your items. Sit down and write out your plans for the summer. Does your planned summer lifestyle match how you are picking your items? If no, it is time to plan according to your itinerary.

Figuring out where to shop for your size and budget can be frustrating. The end result is wasting money on items that are good enough NOT perfect for your authentic image!
