Summer is finally here and this Fashion Friday is all about the five fashion essentials you need this season.
Canadian stylist Kim XO Applet lists these must-have items that you need in your wardrobe this summer.
Starting off with a silk blouse that is quintessential to a wardrobe for any time of year not just during the summer.
Kim says silk actually has a moisture wicking property that is anti-bacterial, keeping you cool during the hot humid months and warm in the winter.
The blouse Kim highlights have concealed buttons, which dresses up the shirt a little bit more, and is available for under $100.
