Casual Cute Summer Outfit

Introducing the Summer 2024 daily uniform.

This casual, cute outfit is perfect for everyday wear, being comfy, easy to put together, and featuring some of the season’s biggest fashion trends.

Boxer-inspired blue and white striped shorts are a massive trend this season, and for a good reason: they are lightweight, easy to pull on, and look adorable with everything from t-shirts to tank tops to crop tops.

For an everyday look, pair them with a simple, ribbed white tank top and a gray cardigan sweater, which you can wear over your shoulders, along with some navy blue Adidas Gazelle sneakers (another huge trend right now).

Throw on a fun, graphic print trucker hat in a similar color scheme, along with a pearl pendant beaded necklace for a seasonal touch.

Whether you’re running errands, grabbing coffee, or hanging out with friends, this look is sure to become your new go-to!

Summer Vacation Outfit

Got vacation plans this summer? You can’t go wrong with a crop top and maxi skirt set; sets make getting dressed a breeze and make you look incredibly put-together.

These pieces can also be worn with other items in your suitcase (or wardrobe, in general), making them ultra-versatile, as well.

This set features a tube top and matching maxi skirt with a tropical floral print that feels so summery, and they are made with a lightweight, stretchy fabric that is ideal for hot weather.

Style the set with some raffia sandals with a low flatform heel — I’d advise against packing ultra-high heels or stilettos for vacation, which tend to be uncomfortable and can be difficult to walk in.

These raffia sandals will also pair well with the rest of your vaca wardrobe, since they are beachy and neutral.

Bring the look together with other beachy accessories like a shell-shaped straw handbag and some gold shell-shaped earrings. (BTW, shell jewelry is having a major moment this summer.)

Lastly, don’t forget your sunglasses: I love these luxe-looking gold metal oval sunnies.

Tennis Core Summer Outfit

One of this summer’s hottest fashion trends? Tennis core!

This aesthetic is all about dressing like you’re headed to a tennis match — whether as a player on the court or as a stylish spectator.

Just look to Zendaya in Challengers or the personalities in Netflix’s Break Point for inspo, and get ready to see tons of tennis skirts and dresses this season!

Personally, I am so here for this trend because it balances comfort (via athletic clothing) with chicness (tennis-inspired clothing has such a classic look). Plus, tennis-friendly clothing usually features lightweight, moisture-wicking fabrics, making it perfect for the summertime heat!

Get the tennis core look with a pleated skort that has built-in shorts (with pockets!) and is made with a sweat-wicking material; this green and white skort is reminiscent of a tennis court’s colors, making it an extra cute choice.

Pair it with a sleeveless white polo top (this one has a built-in bra) for a country club vibe.

These Reebok Club C 85 sneakers have a vintage-inspired look with subtle green accents to match the skirt and will look adorable with some white crew socks.

To elevate this ensemble and make it off-court ready, add in chic accessories like some slim oval sunglasses, mini gold hoop earrings, and a sleek white belt bag.

Beach/Pool Summer Outfit

Hopefully, you’ll get to spend some time at the beach and/or pool this summer—it is the season for that, after all!

Whether you’re going away on vacation or hitting your local swimming pool, you’ll want to look stylish as you soak up those sun rays (while wearing SPF, of course).

Why not wear a cute crochet knit cover-up set over your swimsuit?

This crochet set comes with shorts and a coordinating button-down top with short sleeves. Their lightweight, open-knit design makes them ideal for beach days and will show a peek of your swimwear underneath.

Because of this, opt for a bright bathing suit with an eye-catching print like this floral print bikini, so that it pops underneath the crochet.

You’ll also need some cute sunglasses and water-friendly sandals that you can easily slip in and out of, and these footbed sandals are great for the beach or pool.

Summer Dinner Outfit

There’s nothing better (IMO) than a summer dinner out. Patio weather is here, and I, for one, can’t wait to dress up and enjoy my meal sitting outside on a warm summer evening.

Whether you’re heading to dinner with friends or family or on a date, you can’t go wrong with a cute mini dress.

This green tube mini dress features a bright, fun color and lightweight material, and its simple silhouette can be dressed up or down to your liking.

For a dressier vibe, style it with some woven raffia mules with a short block heel and a matching straw clutch bag (this one also has a removable chain strap so it can be worn crossbody-style). Straw, raffia, and jute are all materials that have such a summery vibe!

Charm necklaces are another big jewelry trend this season, and this beachy charm necklace will compliment the straight neckline of the dress perfectly.

Summer BBQ Outfit

OK, now that I think of it, there might be something better than a summer dinner out… and that is a summer BBQ!

If you’ve been invited to a backyard BBQ this summer but still want to look fashion-forward, this outfit is the perfect mix of casual yet chic.

Go for a pair of flowy, white pants, like this linen-blend pair with a comfy drawstring waistband and some easy, flat slide sandals with a stylish cut-out design.

Pair these with any cute crop top of your choosing — gingham is especially BBQ-appropriate, and this gingham crop top with ruffles and a bow will look adorable with this outfit.

Give the black and white color palette a pop of color with your handbag, like with this red baguette bag with a retro-inspired design, and add in some silver earrings.

Fourth of July Outfit

Speaking of BBQs, Independence Day isn’t so far away, and it’s the ultimate occasion to pull out all of your red, white, and blue clothing in celebration.

Since Fourth of July celebrations tend to be laid-back, wear some cutoff blue denim shorts with an Americana-theme top, like this cropped USA graphic print t-shirt.

Opt for fun, statement-making accessories in the red, white, and blue color scheme, like some retro aviator sunglasses and a graphic print trucker hat to give your outfit a cool, laid-back vibe.

This holiday is the ideal time to break out your trendy sneakers, and these red and blue Adidas Gazelle Bold sneakers couldn’t be a more perfect pick for Independence Day, featuring a flatform heel.

Summer Sightseeing Outfit

Whether you’ll be sightseeing in a new place or just playing tourist in your own city this summer, this look is going to make you look cute while keeping you comfy as you walk around exploring.

Sightseeing involves a ton of walking, so start with either some comfortable sandals or sneakers. Since Adidas Sambas are one of the “it” shoes of the summer, I say go for a pair of these!

They’ll give a flowy white tiered maxi skirt a casual vibe that is perfect for daytime wear. (BTW, these skirts are another major trend this season.)

On top, you can wear anything from a cami to a crop top; I’m into this graphic print tube top which makes for a cool, unexpected choice.

Be sure to bring a claw clip with you to put your hair up when the temperatures rise, plus some slim oval sunglasses for a chic vibe.

If you’ll be traversing a bustling city, be sure to use a handbag that will keep your belongings secure: a crossbody crescent bag with a zipper closure and a strong strap will allow you to go hands-free with more peace of mind than with an open tote bag.

Summer Concert Outfit

Put on your boots, it’s time to go dancing!

If you’ve got tickets to a concert or music festival this summer, there’s no doubt that you’ll need a super special ‘fit for the occasion.

Your outfit will obviously depend on the type of concert you’ll be attending, but in this case, we’re going for cowgirl core since it’s trending, thanks to Queen Bey. (Consider this outfit as us manifesting a Beyoncé Cowboy Carter tour announcement!)

Start with some white knee-high Western boots with a short block heel that will make it easier to dance (and stand) in.

I love the way these boots look with some high-rise denim shorts — how cute is this pair with star designs on the back pockets?!

This white top with a bustier-inspired silhouette and ruffled sleeves has a Western-inspired look that can be played up even more with a white fringe crossbody bag and a studded leather tie belt worn around your waist.

For a final cute touch, tie it all together with this darling silver cowboy boot pendant necklace.

Summer Internship/Work Outfit

Summer Work Internship Outfit

Products: Top, Skirt, Earrings, Bag, Flats

Heading to an office instead of a beach this summer? No worries, I’ve got you covered for that, too!

If you’ll be interning or working this summer, you’ll need some polished, office-friendly outfits that will be able to withstand the heat (especially if you’re going to be walking or using public transportation to commute).

Nothing is worse than arriving at the workplace a sweaty mess, which is why you’ll want to opt for lightweight yet elevated fabrics like satin, cotton, and linen.

This black satin midi skirt is an ultra-versatile clothing piece that is super lightweight and airy, but looks chic and is appropriate for the office (and beyond). Pair it with a sleeveless top such as this black and white striped sweater vest featuring luxe gold buttons.

Accessorize with gold jewelry (to match the buttons), like some textured, vintage-inspired stud earrings, and a sleek, structured tote bag that’s roomy enough to carry your daily belongings.

Save yourself the trouble of wearing heels to work and opt for ballet flats instead, which are not only more comfortable than pumps, but are very on-trend this season.

Dressy Casual Summer Outfit

Sundress season is here! If you want to put together a dressy-casual look for summer brunches, happy hours, and other get-togethers, a sundress is always the right answer.

It doesn’t matter if it’s printed or plain, long or short; investing in at least one versatile frock made from a lightweight material is going to serve you well in the summertime.

This brightly colored linen-blend button-through mini dress is an adorable option, featuring flutter sleeves and a sweetheart neckline.

While you can also wear it casually with sneakers, for a slightly dressier look, opt for some trendy, chunky platform raffia sandals and an eye-catching handbag, like this crochet shoulder bag in a matching hue.

Be sure to accessorize with gold jewelry like some chunky gold earrings and a delicate gold charm chain necklace for added *charm* (see what I did there?).

You can also wear an oversized denim jacket over the top if you are indoors in air conditioning or going out on a chilly summer evening.

Summer Going Out Outfit

Hit the town this summer in a Y2K-inspired going-out look that’s sure to turn heads.

Y2K fashion is still going strong and is such a fun aesthetic to wear when going out with your friends.

Start with a flirty black cut-out bodysuit (which you’ll be able to wear later in the year with jeans and pants) and wear it with a denim mini skirt.

These strappy black heeled sandals feature the cutest crystal accents that are going to match well with silver jewelry like some large hoop earrings and a leather cord necklace with a silver heart pendant (which is so Y2K).

Give the ensemble a pop of color with a bright handbag, like this metallic blue bag with ’90s buckle detailing.

Summer Athletic Outfit

Athletic Summer Outfit

Products: Athletic Set, Hat, Bag, Sneakers

Hot Girl Walks are about to get a lot hotter with summer’s rising temps.

To keep cool during your workouts this summer, wear a workout set in a bright color like coral for a boost in motivation. This set features stretchy, high-waisted shorts and a matching sports bra, and it comes in over 20 colors!

A belt bags is the best for walks and runs, since it’ll allow you to be hands-free during your workout, and is the perfect size for stashing your phone, headphones, keys, and other small necessities.

Not only will a graphic print foam trucker hat look cute, but it will help keep your hair out of your face and has a perforated back panel to allow for plenty of airflow. It’s a summertime must-have!

Summer Wedding Guest Outfit

Attending a summer wedding? That means it’s time to break out the flowy, floral dresses!

Of course, your outfit will depend on the dress code (always check this first!), but in many cases, you can’t go wrong with a floral print maxi dress.

This halter maxi dress is made with a lightweight chiffon material that will keep you cool (even if it’s an outdoor wedding on a sweltering summer day), and its pink floral print looks so sweet. This dress also features a flattering fitted waist, low back, and slit, making it extra flowy.

Dress it up even further with glam accessories like gold drop earrings and a wavy gold bangle bracelet to match, along with a structured clutch bag like this pearlescent pick with a chunky, beaded strap.

Since weddings involve plenty of mingling and dancing, you’ll want to pick shoes that are going to look elegant but feel comfortable, and block-heel sandals are the way to go. This neutral-colored pair will match just about any dress, and their minimal, strappy design keeps them looking stylish.
