It’s mid-summer and many stores are beginning to receive their fall collections, which means it’s time to stock up on some summer clothing essentials for some great prices!

It’s not too late to swipe up some of the most popular style staples from this summer, whether it’s a strapless maxi dress, a pair of chino shorts, or a sleeveless peplum top.

Other summer 2013 style staples include a variety of accessories, from big and bold statement necklaces to light infinity scarves and hair accessories such as headbands.

See what must-haves you’re missing in your closet and be sure to stock up on these top summer staples before the summer is over. Below are the five hottest look for the hottest summer weather.

1. Peplum Tops

Peplum tops were cute in the winter and they’re even cuter in the summer. Opt for a sleeveless lace peplum top for an easy outfit for summer paired with cute pastel-colored shorts during the day or dark skinny jeans for a nighttime look.

Peplum-style dresses are also in style if you’re looking for something a little dressier, perfect for a night out on the town or even for a wedding if styled conservatively.

2. Chino Shorts

Bring on the bold this summer with colored chino shirts, ranging from coral to turquoise to yellow.

Pastel colors are in this summer, whether paired of a plain white tee or a matching floral top. Dress them up with an oxford button down or crew-neck sweater.

3. Statement Necklaces

Statement necklaces can take any outfit from drab to fab effortlessly. Opt for a big, bold bubble necklace to give a little something extra to your outfit.

If you don’t want to focus too much attention on your jewelry, opt for a bulky cuff bracelet, ring, or a daintier necklace. Add in a pair of fun earrings and you’re set to go!

4. Maxi Dress

There’s nothing easier than throwing on a maxi dress in the morning for ultimate comfort, whether you’re hitting the beach or just lounging around on the weekend.

Strapless maxi dresses provide great coverage and you’ll feel confident in this easy, breezy piece that requires minimal effort on your part.

5. Headbands

You don’t have to be five years old or Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf to rock a headband, particularly in the crazy summer heat. Headbands are an easy way to keep the hair out of your face and the frizz to an all-time low while looking put-together.

Opt for a thick fabric headband or a skinny understated headband – regardless of what suits your taste, messy buns and pony tails have never looked so stylish.

These are just a few of the various summer style must-haves that are out there right now. Grab a few of these necessities before summer is over and the cooler weather approaches!

Whether formal pastel chino shorts with an oxford button-up works for you or a breezy maxi dress with a fabric headband is more your style, you’re sure to look great in these summer staples.
