In most places, summer is synonymous with hot, and once the heat rolls in, we reach for pieces that are breathable and airy, freeing our arms and legs from a stifling cage of fabric. In turn, “summer style” becomes the go-to uniform of denim shorts and a t-shirt, every day, every where.

To avoid a style rut, here are some outfits to inspire you to stay cool without sacrificing your wardrobe’s variety.

Matching Set

Summer outfit idea: Matching top and pants, hat, sandals.

Products: Top and Pants Set – Forever 21, Sandals – Amazon, Hat – Belk, Bronzer – Macy’s, Hair Spray – Target

There’s a way to look high-fashion that requires the same effort as putting on a top and pants, and it’s in the form of a subtle yet bold matching set

Avoid the floral and tribal printed matching short sets that everyone else seems to own, and go for this nautical matching pant set that screams summer. 

For maximum effortlessness, fake a tan with bronzer, fake beach waves with a salt spray, and throw on easy sandals and a floppy hat for sun protection.

The Button Up Skirt

Summer outfit idea: Black tank, pink denim skirt, gray backpack.

Products: Top – Topshop, Skirt – Forever 21, Sneakers – Vans, Backpack – ASOS, Sunglasses – River Island

For a casual daytime adventure, upgrade the year’s favorite button-up denim skirt with a seasonal hue – blush pink

Throw on a black cropped tank top for some edge (there’s just something about black in the summer), then add your favorite white sneakers, rose gold sunnies, and a sturdy but minimal backpack.

The White Dress

White dress, espadrilles, orange bag, sunglasses.

Products: Dress – Boohoo, Sunglasses – River Island, Bag – Kohl’s, Shoes – Nine West

For some reason, people think that when you’re wearing a dress, you must have spent a lot of time on your look… even when all you did was pull it on and walk outside.

Take advantage of that societal perception in a breezy and minimal white shift dress with ruffle details. Accessorize with comfy espadrilles and cat eye sunglasses. For a pop of color, wear an easy crossbody bag in a fun coral shade.
