Five Summer Fashion Must-Haves


Memorial Day weekend is always the unofficial start to summer and about the time we can start pulling out things like denim shorts and maxi dresses

5 pieces to add to your wardrobe for summer

Thanks to Muse Apparel and, I have five summer fashion items they consider must-haves for you when it comes to warm weather fashion. 

These basic pieces are great to have in your closet. If you have a couple of different colors and styles of each, then even better. Summer can be a super easy season to pull together a great looking outfit. You’re dealing with fewer clothes!

Put on a maxi dress with a pair of cute sandals and earrings, and just like magic you’re a fashionista. Seriously, it’s that easy! I have a friend who wears maxi dresses all the time and people always compliment her on how nice she looks. Her response? It’s just a simple dress people! Anyone can pull it off. 😉 

Speaking of maxi dresses

Five Summer Fashion Must-Haves

The Versatile Maxi Dress

Starting summer without a great maxi dress is like going to the beach without any sunscreen. eShakti’s Keyhole Front Floral Chiffon Maxi and Muse Apparel’s Multi Stripe Belted Maxi bring together fashion forward and summer comfort with ease. Think you’re too short or too tall to wear a maxi? Simply enter your height on eShakti for the perfect length, every time.
