The Summer Outfit Combinations I Swear By

This is especially true in the summertime when I can’t get as creative with layering. Since it’s so hot and humid, I don’t like to put too much thoughts into my looks and tend to keep it simple with basics and a few statement pieces thrown into the mix. I usually resort to one of five different outfit combinations throughout the season, which I wanted to break down today.

High-Waisted Shorts, Tank Top & Blazer

Wearing the same old basics can get uninspiring really quick, which is why I love mixing them with more tailored and structured pieces. Two of my summer essentials are belted high-waisted shorts and a blazer. These pieces always manage to pull together a flawless ensemble.

Day Dress & Woven Handbag

On days when the heat and humidity levels are at an all-time high, I’m just not in the mood for denim or pants. Instead, I’ll opt for a casual dress in a breathable fabric like linen or cotton and spruce it up with a woven handbag. I love that dresses like the one above can transition from day to night depending on how you style it.

Statement Top, Distressed Jeans & Strappy Heels

It’s no secret that I love items that can easily be mixed and matched. Distressed denim is usually my top choice for bottoms paired with a chic statement top. I’m obsessed with statement details that really pop, like eyelet, lace, and billowy sleeves. Although sneakers are a mainstay in my wardrobe, I love wearing heeled sandals in the summer for a dressier vibe.

Button Down Top & Cutoff Shorts

One of the summer outfit combinations I swear by is cutoff shorts paired with a button down top. It’s such a versatile look that you can dress up or down for any day of the week. A fun leopard print is a great way to spice things up – but you can’t go wrong with the effortlessly chic vibe of a white button down top. I always add a lace bralette underneath for a feminine touch.

Graphic Tee, Denim Cutoffs & Straw Hat

When it comes to summer style, I love going for an ultra casual and laid-back vibe. I typically rely on denim cut-offs, white tees (or graphic tees), and sneakers. The great thing about these simple basics is that you can really amp them up with fun accessories like a bold handbag, a straw hat, and embellished sneakers.
