12 Warm-Weather Style Essentials To Carry You Through Summer

By Laura Morgan

There are two kinds of fashion people in this world: those who plan ahead for the change of seasons, obsessively evaluating their wardrobes and noting every style hole to be filled, and those who just like to wing it. Fortunately, whichever crowd you fall into, Walmart has you covered.

Whether you’re searching for classic summer staples or head-turning statement pieces, these looks will have you feeling chic and confident wherever you go. (Even if that's only your own backyard for now.) So, with summer less than a month away, there’s no time like the present to do a little shopping. To help you get started, here are 12 editor-approved options to that will you looking your absolute best this summer.


Stand out in stripes, keep it laid-back in distressed denim, or go classic in summer whites. This season, we’re loving short, fitted pairs, worn with easy tees and oversized button-ups in the daytime and layered with loose knits for evening.


With summer here, it’s finally time to show off that DIY pedi, and trust us — there are so many ways to do it. Whether you’re all about hip and comfy flatforms, feel most put-together in a printed block-heel mule, or never leave the house without killer heels, your dream pair awaits.


Nothing pulls an outfit together like the right accessories — hats, bags, and sunglasses — and right now is the perfect time to experiment. If you’re a structured bag type in the winter, why not loosen up and try a slouchy, woven boho shoulder bag? Summer is all about freedom, and sometimes that means getting out of your own head and playing with a look that you’ve never quite had the nerve to try.
