12 Key Pieces You Need To Build An Effortlessly Chic Summer Wardrobe

By Kate Marin

There’s no doubt that dressing for summer is far less complex than dressing for winter. During the warmer months, you can simply throw on a cascading maxi dress and head out the door looking effortlessly put-together. But once it gets really hot, putting on even the most lightweight fabrics and the breeziest silhouettes can feel like a task.

Whether you’re embarking on your daily commute or spending a summer afternoon exploring the tropics, there are a few key pieces that will keep you cool, no matter what. From one-and-done staples like rompers and day dresses to floral printed swimsuits and shorts that easily pair with a go-to tee, Walmart.com has all the pieces you'll be reaching for.
