Not to rain on your summer shopping parade or anything, but you can't just do it all willy-nilly, ordering whatever pretty thing jumps out at you. Before all that fun stuff comes the basics, because let's be real here: it's not statement pieces you're going to wear to tatters in the upcoming months. No one does that except Anna Dello Russo (and there has been some documented evidence to suggest even she doesn't!).

Even still, I totally get that using the money you've been saving for a pair of bejeweled Prada Tevas on simple things like white tees and jorts can a be a bit of a bummer. That's why I've found options for the seven most important warm-weather essentials that fit every type of budget—from under $50 to limitless—in the slideshow above.
