3 must have versatile pieces for spring/summer 2023
Before purchasing any new clothing items for the spring/summer months, there are three necessary questions to ask before clicking on that "add to cart" button...
1. Will this piece be both comfortable and cool enough to wear in the brutal Houston heat?
2. Does this piece feel current and up-to-date, without being too trendy?
3. Does it have enough versatility to wear in multiple outfits for multiple situations?
If the answer, is no to any of the above questions, it's not worthy of a spot in your closet.
Are you in need of pieces to create outfits that are cute and breezy enough for a restaurant patio on a balmy summer evening, but also sleek and chic enough to wear to the office? Outfits that can easily be transitioned from hanging out with the kiddos to going out with friends or on a date with the hubby in the evening?
Girl, I've got you. My job is to take the doubt, overwhelm, and time consuming energy out finding these kind of pieces, so you can always be effortlessly stylish and put-together!
Check out my Ashley APPROVED, must-have versatile pieces for spring/summer 2023 below!
1. THE DRESSY CASUAL SHORT
Shorts can be tricky when it comes to being both comfortable and age appropriate. I hear from clients all the time that they just can't seem to find the happy middle short, the pair located right in between riding up the booty and hitting frumpily above the knee. The two factors that are most important here are length and leg hole opening, and my favorite short thats hitting all the right check boxes this season is Wilfred's Fable Linen Short. It comes in both 3" and 5" lengths, which are the perfect mid thigh lengths, not too short or too long. The leg opening is nice and roomy as well and give's these shorts both comfort and class. See how I've styled them in multiple outfits below!
Pastels and shades of pink are big for spring/summer 2023 and linen is a classic fabric choice, making these shorts current without being too trendy. Pictured above is the 3" length which is ideal for women 5'6" or under. If you're on the taller side, 5'7" and up or are more conscious about showing off your legs, try the 5 inch linen short intead.
Looking cute, casual, and cohesive! For casual weekends with the kids, hanging around the house, or running errands, style these shorts with a tee half tucked in with sneakers!
Put-together and stylish for brunch, lunch, or a casual evening out! Wear these linen shorts with a classic scoop neck 1/4 length tee, a fresh white spring layer, and platform sandals to look perfectly put-together for just about any weekend event!
A dressy casual night out: Perfect for a dinner on the patio of a nice restaurant on balmy Saturday evening. This look is effortlessly sexy and stunning without being overstated!
2. THE SPRING SKIRT STAPLE
Longer skirts will be everywhere this season and I'm particularly fond of the pleated Twirl Midi Skirt by Wilfred. With an elastic waist band,
