With each new season comes a chance to refresh your closet and take inventory of what items are needed and which ones can be donated or stored for later! Here are eight ways to get your closet ready for the warm summer sun and all of the adventures that this season might bring! While you go through your closet, make sure you are mindful of whether pieces make you feel good when you put them on--you should always feel incredible in your clothes! Just because more skin is typically shown in the summer, doesn't mean you shouldn't feel just as confident and amazing in your own skin as you would in the colder months! With CJLA, you can feel prepared for the summer while feeling confident that everything in your closet makes you feel as beautiful as you already are.
1. Solid Pair of Denim Shorts
The number one item that is essential for the summer months is a pair of shorts that you can wear on repeat and feel amazing in! Our Revy shorts
are hard to beat because they are made with our signature CJLA stretch that looks like hard denim, has light distressing, and the most flattering cut and length! These are definitely a @cjlagirls favorite for a good reason and trust us-- anyone can pull off the shorts and feel confident in them!

Tanks (restocking this summer in multiple colors!!), the Essential Ribbed Tanks
