I might be jumping the gun here, but I’m already looking ahead to my favorite time of year: summer. I’m looking forward to the long days and warm nights ahead that are hopefully peppered with beach trips, rooftop happy hours, and picnics in the park. While I sit here and daydream about the rising temperatures and outdoor activities to come, naturally I’m also examining my summer wardrobe and doing a good bit of gutting.
I think we can all agree that the past two summer seasons have not exactly felt “normal,” so the staples I used to wear between the months of June and September could definitely use an update. I took a look at my closet and will be removing eight outdated summer fashion staples, in particular, simply because they no longer feel like the freshest option. Items like tiny crop tops and random fanny packs that I hoarded for years are getting the boot, and now I have my eye on a few 2022 updates that will make all my summer ‘fits feel truer to where my style is at today.
With that, keep reading to see which staples I’ll be relying upon over the course of the next few months, and consequently, which older ones I’m cutting out for good.
