Summer officially starts on Friday and temperatures keep on rising. And with those hot temperatures comes a slew of wardrobe issues: jeans that it's too hot to wear, fabrics that cling around your legs, and tops that show off perspiration.

However, there's no doubt that you can conquer these summer dressing problems and come up with some cute outfits.

To help out, we have compiled four sample outfits, made for the scorching summer months. Each outfit totals in at under $100, but with several pieces interchangeable with items you already own, the totals should add up to far under $100.

Outfit 1: $95.30

When temperatures are 85+, breezy, flowy fabrics are key. This printed dress is perfect, since it drapes in all the right ways, has a deep back, and doesn't cling to the skin. Accessorize this frock with T-strap sandals, a cross-body bag, and plenty of jewelry.

Outfit 2: $98.47

Trendy crop tops are also an ideal choice for the hot, hot heat. If you're a little wary of this trend, you can always opt for a pretty cami instead. Pair it with a high-waisted, hi-low skirt and sky-high wedges. This is a great day-to-night look for all of your long, summer days.

Outfit 3: $73.24

For a casual and easy-to-wear look, reach for a plain t-shirt and pair it with a printed skirt. This particular skirt, from Target, has an adjustable drawstring waistband and pockets! (Who doesn't love a skirt with pockets?) Chunky wedge sandals and a brown headband keep this outfit cute and comfy.

Outfit 4: $87.91

High-waisted shorts and a loose, printed tank make for the perfect summertime outfit formula. If you want, opt for a bandeau bra in a soft material instead of a full-cup bra - it's a much cooler option. White Keds are ideal for running errands in the summer, while sunglasses are a warm-weather must-have.
