Before you go cleaning out your closet making room for new fall styles and tossing old summer ones, make sure you don’t throw anything out that will still be in next summer!

I’ve found that there are some summer staples that will always be in style. Keeping these items tucked under the bed or in the back of your closet will help you from having to buy similar things each season.

Read on for my top three summer staples that I’ll for sure be holding on to!

Three Summer Staples to Hold On To: 

  1. White Dress                                                                                                                                                                                                              You can never go wrong with a white dress. You can wear it to brunch, on dates and even out to dinner with your friends. My favorite is the one I’m wearing from Guess. Check out two similar dresses from Lulus and SheIn.
  2. Tan Heels
    Tan heels can be worn with almost anything! I love pairing them with both dresses and jeans. Mine are from Lulus and find some similar ones, also from Lulus, here.
  3. White Purse

    I love white purses and the one I’m wearing from Michael Kors is my favorite. It’s big enough to hold everything I need but it’s not too much to carry. It’s perfect for summer but I’ll definitely be seen wearing it throughout the year.

What will never leave your closet?
