Carefully selected staple colors can really take an outfit up a notch. This summer season my go to colors are white, nude and turquoise.

Add white to make it bright. White bottoms lighten your outfit and make you appear to have a sun kissed glow. Whether it’s shorts, trousers or jeans have your whites bright and out in the sunshine. If you are feeling daring, try an all white look – just make sure your whites are the same shades!

Nude shoes lengthen when worn with shorts, dresses or skirts. There is no choppy ending with a nude sandal and a good pair will make your legs look much longer. These wedges from Clarks are my favorite purchase of the season. They have air technology and are comfortable all day long. Try a patent nude when going for an evening look.

Something about turquoise makes me think of summer and the sea. Turquoise can mix and match with a variety of other colors. It can also act as a eye-catching contrast if you choose a turquoise accessory for a statement piece.

New things have been hitting the shelves for fall and it’s hard to keep them hidden away to wait for cooler weather. This sheer tie-dye blouse from Target is the perfect balance of chic and comfort. Emerald green is one of my favorite colors of the moment and pairing it with a black contrast takes it right into fall. The sleeve and hem bands are made of a knit material so it feels like lounge wear. Instead of putting this blouse with skinny jeans or slim black pants I put it with shorts so I can wear it before the season changes. I find that taking certain “fall” items and pairing them with white shorts, or other summer colors, makes a look that works for right now!

What’s your favorite convertible piece?
