Basic Bits Summer Edition  
Girls loath the transition that the seasons bring, especially when there is only a certain amount of space in their cupboards. If you have made a resolution this year to spend less money on clothes when summer comes around and keep to the very minimal basics, this article is definitely for you.
Basic item number 1 is no other than your thinnest, most comfortable pair of jeans. We know how unpredictable summer plans are and if there is an impromptu short road trip, your pair of jeans will save you from having the entire world watch perspiration roll down your legs when you need to be out the entire day.
Basic item number 2 is an assortment of plain t-shirts: it is always advisable to have the colors white, black, navy and one bright-colored shirt which suit you. Think bright hues of orange, green, pink, or yellow. You wouldn't have to worry if the pattern or print matches your bottoms and it makes dressing up, a quicker affair.
Basic item number 3 is a pair of shorts. It should not be too short that bending over draws unwanted attention and try keeping to khaki, denim, navy or white colors. In fact, lets indulge a little, since it is summer and have 2 pairs available in your drawers!
Another important item for any girls in summer, which we have not forgotten, is skirt. Keep one plain-colored skirt (preferably high waist) and a flower skirt or striped/patterned skirt. Remember, we are trying to keep the items in your cupboard to a minimal so 2 skirts are a good number.
Also, a maxi dress and a short dress should be hung out for those special days with a special someone or for trips to the beach. It is also ideal for a lazy day when wearing a one-piece outfit is all the energy you can muster. Again, keep to bright colors and summery patterns.
To complete the look, do not forget that one pair of flip-flop, tan or white-colored strappy sandals, black ballet flats and your accessories: sun glasses, scarves, necklaces, watches and bracelets. Now who say your cupboard can't hold all you need?
