The summer blouse: You can wear it to weekend brunch, to the office, and out for evening cocktails. Its versatility makes it a great fashion piece to scoop up now.

Summertime fashion investments can be tricky, since most items are limited just to that single season, so shop wisely and invest in tops that can straddle spring, summer, winter and fall.

When it comes to styling the piece, we love its ability to be worn with almost anything. Try throwing on your favorite jean shorts and slides with a floral button down and head out to a beach party. You can dress up a striped blouse with khakis and loafers for work.

Ahead, 5 perfect summer blouses to base your warm-weather wardrobe around.
