There are key pieces that make up any fashionable and sophisticated summer wardrobe.  But contrary to the unpopular belief and notion that fashionable wares need to cost you your summer vacation fun (for what good are cute clothes without somewhere fabulous to wear them!) there are so many options for today’s not-yet-a-mogul fashionista.

Especially when the clothes are so bity (summertime=less fabric), there’s no excuse for overpaying. Moschino did it first with Cheap & Chic. Now it’s your turn.

Here are some affordably chic options, that you can switch and swap, and wear everywhere! Start at the littlest pieces and work your way out.

A peachy bandeau top is key for summer fun. You can wear it under tanks or dresses that don’t necessarily work well with a bra.

Loose fitting tees.  Need something to throw that bandeau over? Pick up these Crop Tees in multiple summer blush hues.

Play with your hemlines with this Extreme Drop Hem Tank.  You can wear it over a bikini with sandals, throw on some strappy wedges and wear it from the beach to dinner.

Split personalities.  You don’t need to go all sheer or all covered.  Bare just the right amount of skin at night and show off your tummy bronze from your daytime lounging in the Color Block Split Neck Blouse.

Yes, of course you need a Floral Printed Denim Cutoff.  The higher rise elongates tanned legs. Wear with the bandeau, the crop tops, or the split neck blouse.

AND of course, printed pants make everything more fun.  Mild summer days become wild summer nights.  Don’t let the monochrome fool you, these Cropped Pant in Monochrome Leaf Print are a standout, but simple.  Pants that hit your ankle are great for day-to-night trick, as you can easily transition from flat to heel.
