Under $100: Trending Summer Staples

Summer Fashion Trends 2016

Ready or not, summer is most definitely here. For many, this is their favorite season…and for good reason! Along with the warm weather comes plenty of barbeques, beach vacations, boating trips, and park visits. Question being, is your wardrobe ready? Here are the summer staples that everyone will be wearing this year. And at $100 or less, these are items you can implement into your wardrobe today:

Of course a sun hat is an absolute must have to shade your face, but instead of an oversized floppy brim, try one that is a bit shorter like Kendall Jenner’s. You’ll still protect your face, but in a more modern way.
