All-American summer style staples
When shopping for summer clothes, pick classic, all-American looks. These eight summer style staples should be in every woman's wardrobe.
Instead of a little black dress, you need a little white dress for summertime. Look for a cotton frock that can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the occasion. We love this Tommy Hilfiger sleeveless dress, priced at $80 at Macy's because it features subtle swiss dots and a figure-flattering A-line shape.
Striped tanks and tees are essential for summer. Pastel colors are hot right now, but brights are a big hit as well. And if you prefer, you can always go for the classic blue and white nautical stripes, too. You'll really love the rolled sleeves and hip-length style of this Tommy Hilifiger boatneck tee, available in three different color combinations. On sale at Macy's for $33, this tee will be one of your summer favorites.
Every woman needs a great pair of white jeans in her closet. We love the versatile Tommy Hilfiger white jeans with their curvy fit and bootcut leg. On sale for just $33 at Macy's, they're a fabulous bargain! Consider adding a pair of white capris to your summer wardrobe as well.
Keep a jean jacket with you wherever you go this summer. It's perfect for cool mornings or evenings when you want something casual and easy to wear. You can partner this Tommy Hilfiger Hope denim jacket, priced at just under $80, with everything from a cotton dress to your favorite jeans and tee.
Denim shorts are also a classic style choice for summer. You can cut off a pair of your old jeans, or pick up a pair of denim shorts like these from Tommy Hilfiger. Available in sizes 2 through 16 at Macy's, they're on sale for only $38.
Finish off your favorite summer outfits with a great pair of sandals. These Tommy Hilfiger Loraine thong sandals are perfect in pewter snake. Priced at $39, they can be worn with your favorite summer dresses, shorts, capris or anything else you are wearing decide to throw on.
A roomy straw tote bag is a summer must-have. You can carry a straw tote from the office to the pool to a summer party without missing a beat. Also consider an oversized canvas bag that you can use to carry everything from groceries to your beach essentials.
For a classic summer look, you can't beat a pair of retro-inspired cateye sunglasses. If you are always losing your shades, you don't have to spend a bundle on sunglasses. You can find online retailers and superstores with cute styles of sunglasses for under $10 a pair.
