When it comes to versatile pieces that never go out of style, the Levi’s denim jacket reigns supreme in our eyes. Day or night, this easy to layer and even easier to love piece adds style and functionality to any look and is hands down a must-have for your summer capsule wardrobe.

However, there are a few other key pieces out there that we are going to argue are just as important to have in your wardrobe.

First up – a sleek yet comfortable pair of tapered ankle jeans. The fitted look makes them easy to dress up or down by simply swapping flats for heels or ankle boots.

It’s also a good idea to have a slouchy button down. Adorable on their own, these also look great with a blazer, rain coat or scarf.

Because summer usually means rooftop drinks, backyard BBQs or long lazy lunches, we love having a go-to wrap dress. Again, wrap dresses can be casual when paired with sandals and a crossbody as well as sleek and formal when matched with a heel and clutch.

Speaking of bags – wicker bags can take you from a lunch meeting in the city to a beachside dinner date in seconds.

Last – easy to slip-on shoes are a non-negotiable. As mamas, we know that getting out the door with beach toys, pool floats or sports equipment can be tricky. Make your morning routine simpler with a pair of timeless, comfortable and durable slip-ons.
