Every woman should own these classic style staples. Read on to learn about these essential pieces and how to wear them this summer.

Tommy Hilfiger sleeveless floral print A-line dress

Floral dress

Floral print dresses are summer staples. They are cute, feminine and fun. Look for floral dresses in easy, figure-flattering styles, such as wrap dresses, simple shifts and A-line shapes. We adore the Tommy Hilfiger sleeveless floral print A-line dress. Originally priced at just under $99, this dress is on sale now for $41. This dress features a scooped neckline and belted waist. For cool mornings or evenings, top this dress with a cropped cardigan or classic denim jacket. Wear it with anything from jeweled sandals to floral wedges to your favorite ballet flats.

Tommy Hilfiger cotton tee

Striped tee

For a nautical look, the striped boatneck tee is a must-have. You'll adore this Tommy Hilfiger cotton tee with its three-quarter sleeves and classic navy and white stripes. Regularly priced at nearly $60 at Macy's, this top is on sale now for $50 in sizes XS to XL. Wear this striped tee with your favorite jeans or partner it with your summer whites. It would look great with a slim white skirt and high heel sandals at the office. For weekend wear, team up this tee with white shorts or capris and a fun pair of wedges.

White jeans

Speaking of your summer whites, one of the essential pieces in every woman's summertime wardrobe is a pair of white jeans. If you haven't found your perfect pair of white jeans yet, check out these cropped capris in optic white wash denim from Tommy Hilfiger. These cropped jeans are discounted to just $58 right now at Macy's, in sizes 2 to 18. Wear these capris with colorful tanks and tees, along with simple flat thong sandals, for a fresh summer look that is casual yet chic.

Tommy Hilfiger Amelia shorts

Denim shorts

Denim shorts are a must for summer, and we aren't suggesting cutoff Daisy Dukes. Pick up a pair of classic denim shorts with rolled cuffs. Consider these Tommy Hilfiger Amelia shorts from Macy's. Priced at $45, these shorts feature cuffs with button tabs on the side and convenient utility pockets. Wear these shorts with a ruffled tank top and metallic ballet flats for a look that's casual without being sloppy.

Wrap skirt

The classic wrap skirt gets a bold update in a chic print. This Tommy Hilfiger wrap skirt was inspired by a designer scarf, and it definitely looks high-end — but without the designer price tag. On sale for $60 at Macy's, this wrap skirt will look amazing with a solid blouse or tee and a pair of platform wedge sandals. Add a pair of oversized sunglasses and you'll be in style, no matter where you are headed this summer.
