5 Must-Haves for the Summer

As I started my day on the search to capture Real Style, I noticed I left my camera in the house and because I am the only person on the planet without a camera on my phone, I was unable to expose the dope styles hitting the streets today, but as your Style Reporter, i have a back up plan.

Check out the 5 Must-Haves for this season that will guarantee to have anyone asking you, "Where did you get that?"

1. The OxfordThe Oxford is a great substitute for the conventional flat.
Style tips: try pairing these up with a pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans, fitted tee (preferably vintage) and a long blazer (don't forget to roll up the sleeves).

2. Destroyed Denim
This is one of my favorites because this can be created in the comfort of your own living room. DYI is always the way to go!
Style Tips: Pair your destroyed denim with a long tank, a statement shoe and a cropped lightweight leather jacket.... HOT!

3. White Denim
I've always appreciated white denim in the Summer.
Style Tips: This Must-Have can be dressed down with a cool graphic tee and eye popping Converse sneaks or styled to turn heads with a beautiful lightweight tunic .

4. Sequin cardigan/bolero
This is another favorite of mine. This one staple can turn a Day fit into a Dope night ensemble.
Style Tips: A long tank paired up with skinny jeans (or leather tights) and a round toe pump (preferably platform pump)... can you say HOT!

5. Anything Khaki

All of your favorite designers are creating a khaki palette into their assortments.
Alexander Wang for Gap created a cleaver khaki collection at a recessionista price.
Style tips: add olive green to your khaki outfit- whether its jewelry or a tank, the two hues make a great combination.
