Memorial Day weekend is the official summer kickoff, which makes it the perfect time to revamp your wardrobe with pieces that will serve you throughout the season.
As always, summer is about bright colors, less clothing and poppin’ accessories. From the must-have bags to mules, you’ll be right on trend with these staples from our favorite retailers and Black-owned boutiques.
A Statement Two-Piece Set
Two-piece sets offer a complete look, for one price, while accentuating your body shape. This mustard two-piece set ($54.99) by ElevenThirty will compliment your melanin and accentuate your curves with its high waist pants. Whether it’s a brunch or kickback, you’ll totally standout in this fashion statement. With stretch factor and an inner lining, this is a flawless slay. It’s so in demand, it’s on pre-order.
A Cute Top
Serve a sexy and simple look that shows off your decolletage. A great top, and it doesn’t have to be expensive, goes a long way. This powder blue knit strappy ($18), from PrettyLittleThing, can be paired with palazzo pants, shorts, belted high-waist pants and beyond.
Distressed Biker Shorts

A Cute Duster
A long duster with print of bold color is the perfect piece to take your look to the next level and keep you warm when the sun goes down. This “Ethanel” satin duster ($65) from Chic Couture Online is will all the perfect pop to your basic blue jeans and white top.
A Bomb Maxi Dress

A Small Bag
Wearing less and going out more also goes for your bag. Lock that big winter tote in the closet and break out your small bag that only holds the essentials.
