With the change of season comes the perfect time to update your closet—and refreshing your wardrobe does not need to break the bank! Opt for pieces that can easily work with your existing closet and that fit within your current style aesthetic.

From new silhouettes to fun prints, check out my top five summer items you can buy right now to help make your wardrobe feel new again.

1. The Bucket Bag

I’m obsessed with bucket bags this season, and this mini-option (in such a fun hue!) is the perfect option for sunny days. Surprisingly, it’s one of those colorful neutrals that somehow manages to still work with your existing wardrobe.

2. The Block Heel

The block heel is having a major moment right now—and I couldn’t be more excited because they are so comfortable! The block heel can make your go-to dress look and feel new again, adding a whole different style vibe. I love this metallic pair, which can be worn dressed up or down.

3. Striped Pants 

There is something so incredibly easy and classic about a vertical striped pant. Pair it with a simple strappy sandal and and a basic top for a super stylish ensemble that can easily go from work to cocktails.

5. An On-Trend Piece 

I’m all for quality classics, but adding a trendy item is a fun way to inject a little life into your closet. So whether it’s a great off the shoulder dress or perhaps a lace overlay, opt for a less expensive on-trend piece that can be styled a variety of different ways.
