Summer fashion trends are hotter than ever this year. This season’s wardrobe essentials are practical, simple and, above all, comfortable! From white shirts to white sneakers to maxi dresses and midi skirts, you can wear loose-fitting stylish outfits while remaining comfortable in the summer heat. Check out these summer wardrobe essentials every girl needs so you can relax in style this season.
Denim is back this summer. From denim cut-off shorts to boyfriend jeans and denim jackets, denim is all the rage for this sunny season.
Denim jackets are functional and cute. Even in summer, the nights get chilly, so a denim jacket is a perfect accessory to pair with your cute jumpsuits to keep you warm.
Gender-bending boyfriend jeans allow a loose, relaxing fit all summer long. Gone are the trends of tight, low-riding jeans that stifle you in the heat. The boyfriend jean offers style and comfortability.
Denim shorts never truly go out of fashion, but this summer they are in the limelight. Opt for a cut-off pair with a white t-shirt or a nicely hemmed cuff style, paired with an adorable tank top.
Bright white tees, pants and sneakers are super in style this year. White goes with almost anything and looks great with all skin tones and hair colors. Even better, white is symbolically linked with new beginnings, perfect for the adventurous days of summer.
Who knew a plain white tee could be so chic? This summer, a white t-shirt is the perfect partner for your denim shorts and jacket, or pair it with a midi-skirt for flirty feminine style.
A fancier variation of the white t-shirt, the white button-down is excellent for dressier occasions. Worn with stylish pants or over a form-fitting shirt dress, the white button-down offers more coverage from the sun and a professional vibe.
White pants are a summer staple, and this summer is no different. White pants go with everything and look especially lovely with a dressy tank or swimsuit top at the beach.
Is it any surprise that white sneakers are also in style this season? From canvas slip-ons to sneakers and even athletic footwear, all-white shoes are the fashion statement of the summer.
Thankfully, this summer’s fashion is all about comfort. Loose-fitting maxi dresses and ballet flats mean you don’t have to squeeze into tight-fitting shirts or wear high platform shoes unless you want to.
Shirt dresses — that is to say, oversized shirts worn like dresses — are one of the comfortable styles you’ll see everywhere this season. Choose one with a Breton stripe pattern or a plain, solid-colored shirt dress with a belt for a cute look.
The midi skirt is functional and comfortable. Midi skirts hit around your upper calf. This is an ideal length because maxis can sometimes get in your way, while minis can make you feel exposed. Pair a midi with a plain white t-shirt, and you’ve got yourself the perfect summer date outfit.
The best invention ever, ballet flats are fashionable footwear nowadays. Easy to wear and easy to pair, ballet flats come in various colors and patterns so that you can wear them with almost anything. Throw a pair on with your shorts, midi skirt or maxi dress for a day of summer shopping.
Maxi dresses are a standout in summer fashion, especially when you want to look spectacular, stay cool and flaunt your classy style. Go for a solid-colored maxi with a jean jacket, or pack your closet with comfy and flowy boho dresses for a chic, bohemian look.
No outfit is complete without these must-have summer accessories. Whether you’re rocking a casual women’s loungewear set or just a bathing suit, you’ll want to add unique accessories like a straw hat or colorful cross-body bag to complete your look.
Tote bags are a necessity in the summer, especially for days at the beach or along the shore of your favorite local lake. Your tote bag lets you carry all the things you need for a day of fun in the sun, so don’t forget to load it up and take it with you.
When you go on vacation or are just strolling around town with your best friends, a cross-body bag or purse is an accessory you’ll want to have. Colorful, cute and functional, these bags let you keep your important belongings close while highlighting colors or patterns in your outfit.
The two-strap sandal is back, and it’s perfect for late-night outings and fancy dates. Fashionable two-strap sandals can be flat or high-heeled, so pick the style you want based on where you’ll be wearing them. Two-straps look great with midi skirts and maxi dresses alike, or go with a pair of shorts and a dressy tank top for the perfect nighttime look.
In addition to wearing a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF to protect your skin this summer, opt for an adorable straw hat. The brim of a straw hat provides shade for your face, keeping it out of direct sunlight while also giving your outfit a laid-back, classic summer vibe. Wide-brimmed or short-brimmed, white straw or gold, it doesn’t matter which you choose because they all look great, especially paired with a sleek pair of sunglasses.
It goes without saying, but don’t forget to invest in a fabulous pair of shades this summer. Sunglasses with lots of gold are in this season, as are square-shaped glasses and oversized cat-eye glasses with tortoiseshell patterns. Snag a pair of these stylish glasses to wear around town or at the beach.
Slides are just sandals that slide on your feet, so score another point for comfort by adding these to your wardrobe. Slides are essential summer footwear, especially for those days where you are just lounging around or running quick errands. They go well with everything, from dresses to pants, to shorts and even swimsuits.
As the summer months get rolling, make sure to stock your closet with the summer wardrobe essentials. Embrace comfort-focused clothing, like slides and ballet flats, plus flowing maxi dresses and loungewear so you can stay relaxed in the summer heat. To build your seasonal collection, grab a white t-shirt and sneakers, a few different styles of jean jackets, some midi skirts and fashionable sunglasses, and you’ll be sitting in style all summer long.
