New season, new wardrobe. As the temperatures continue to rise, give your style a revamp with some fresh summer looks. From bright colors to matching separates and this season’s hottest trends, here are some warm-weather-ready outfit ideas to inspire your closet this season.
- 1. Mix and Match Prints
Fashion’s love of the leopard print midi skirt is still going strong. The versatile piece is the perfect starting point to build any outfit around—just add sandals, a tank, and a contrasting print in the form of a bucket hat or mini bag.
2. Layer Your Button-Down Shirt
Style a crisp white button down shirt over a dress in place of a denim jacket. The look feels fresh and light for summer.
3. Find Your Perfect Summer Jumpsuit
A jumpsuit makes for an easy all-in-one summer look that requires no effort. Add bright accessories to really make the look pop.
4. Master the Art of Summer Layers
Make a crop top and skirt work for the daytime by layering a long, airy cardigan over the look, as demonstrated by Bella Hadid in Cannes.
5. Wear the White Pants
A pair of white cropped wide-leg pants looks instantly chic for summer in the office. Add a light linen blazer for work or wear it with a tank top for the weekend.
6. Go Bright or Go Home
Embrace color in the form of bright yellow hues that bring on the sunshine themselves.
7. Build Around a Printed Wrap Dress
A printed wrap dress is the perfect foundation for an effortless summer look. Change up the look with your accessories—whether switching between sunglasses or summer bags and sandals.
8. Denim Cutoffs + A Crop Top
The simple casual summer outfit formula will never steer you wrong.
9. Summer Suit
DIY your own makeshift suit with a matching crop top, jacket, and pants for a monochromatic moment.
10. The Maxi Cardigan
We love a maxi dress, but what’s more dramatic than a floor-length cardigan paired with denim shorts? Bad Gal Riri gets the look just right for a night out.
11. Dress Up The Tie Dye Trend
Embrace the tie dye trend in t-shirt form and style it with a midi skirt for an elevated take on the look.
12. Keep It Simple
Whether you’re a model off-duty or not, this casual look of a simple tank, wide-leg pants, and sneakers is perfect for the weekend.
13. Wear Your Bathing Suit As a Top
Get more out of your swimsuit collection by styling your one-piece as a top. Wear it with a flared midi skirt or culottes for that Roman Holiday feel.
14. The Blazer and Crop Top
Style a boxy blazer over your crop top and jeans for an updated take on the ’80s look.
15. Swap Out Your Sandals for Sneakers
Whether it’s raining or you simply need a break from your sandals, swap them for a pair of classic white sneakers. The sporty shoe looks especially good with a midi skirt or dress.
16. Bring Back Your Denim Skirt
Yes, the denim skirt is back. Go for a high-waisted and frayed version that will look cool with any of your summer tops.
17. Bike Shorts, But Hold the Bike
The ’80s bike short trend is here to stay for summer. Make it a full athleisure moment à la Emily Ratajkowski by wearing the look with a sports bra and sneakers. Or, for a more dressed up take, wear it with a t-shirt and oversized blazer. No bike required.
