All of this talk about summer being easy and laid back is a lie. Not only do I find myself busier than ever in the summertime, but the heat and humidity bring their own challenges when it comes to style. It can be hard to look crisp and polished and chic and whatever when we are literally melting.
That’s why I’ve collected 50 inspiring, chic, and summery outfit ideas to get us through the season in style. But before you give up on these ideas because you’re missing an item (or 4), remember this:
In other words, use these outfits to inspire you to wear the pieces you have in your own wardrobe in different ways. Many of these outfits are created with wardrobe essentials, and can inspire you in their color combinations, use of accessories, or unexpected pairings.
Here are a few ideas to try in your own closet, inspired by some of the looks shown below:
- Flowy printed dress + statement printed bag + flat sandals
- Neutral dressy blouse + faded jeans + pretty colorful sandals
- Neutral basics + brown belt + brown slides
If you take a big-picture approach to analyzing these outfits, rather than trying to copy them verbatim, you’ll find enough ideas here to last you several summers.
And now, the outfits.
Which of these outfits is your favorite? And which would you like to recreate in your own wardrobe?
