Shop: Skimmies No-Chafe Mid-Thigh Slip Short, $12

It’s summer. It’s hot. It’s sweaty. And sometimes, sweat can get kind of… uncomfortable. Meet “Skimmies”, the lightweight, airy, under your dress shorts that are basically a real gift from the heavens. We literally wear them any time we wear a dress, skirt or just need an extra layer of coverage. No one will ever know you’re wearing them, but we guarantee you will feel 100x more comfortable.

Reusable Straws

Shop: Hummingbird Straws, $20

This necessity goes out to all the iced drinks you’ll be consuming this summer. Plastic straws are on their way out (thank goodness), but that means paper straws are in. And paper straws disintegrate faster than you can say “save the turtles”. You can keep these reusable straws with you at all times to pop in your grande iced açai refresher from Starbs.

Basic Flip Flops

Shop: Havaianas Flip Flops, $23

Yes, we’re obviously super into all of the trendy summer sandals that have come out this season, but what you don’t realize is that at some point, you’re going to need a trusty pair of good ole’ flip flops. And luckily for you, flip flops are super in this season -- so comfort meets chic. Wear em to run errands, wear em to the beach, wear em to check the mail, they are your new go-to.

Hair scrunchies

Shop: Kitsch Metallic Scrunchies, $12

The days of Carrie Bradshaw telling Burger that scrunchies are “out” are long gone, because the scrunchie trend is here and it is taking over on cool girls’ heads everywhere. These cuties not only keep your hair up on hot days, but they’re chic and can elevate any outfit you wear.

Sorry ladies and gents, but cakey makeup just doesn’t work in the summer. Let your face breathe and give it some love with less coverage and more SPF. This one from IT Cosmetics does the ultimate job -- gorgeous glowy coverage + super skin protectant.
