5 Summer Outfits to Copy This Season

5 Summer Outfits to Copy This Season

I’ve got some more summer outfit inspiration for ya with five outfits from the Summer Outfit Guide!  The Summer Outfit Guide takes about 30 pieces of clothes and turns them into 70+ summer outfits to copy so that you don’t have to wonder what to wear this summer! The outfits are primarily for Everyday Casual style, with several Dressy Casual and Weekend looks also.

Check out these 5 outfits to help you get dressed this week!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

 

Casual Summer Outfit: black tank + tan pants + leopard slides + grey crossbody bag + long gold disc pendant necklace + tan leather earrings

Linen Pants + Solid Tank Top + Printed Sandals
Last summer I (finally) learned to appreciate how awesome linen pants are.  They are a great, lightweight option when you don’t want to or can’t wear shorts or dresses.  My pants are from Old Navy last year and no longer available, but there’s a super similar pair from Target HERE!

This outfit is simple with my COMFY, stretchy ModCloth tank.  I’ve been talking about these for years, but if you’re newer around here, I love them!  They’re so comfy and stretchy, they’re long and tunic length so you can wear them with leggings, but they’re also great with a partial front-tuck or a knot like I did above.  I also love them because they’re loose around the midsection, but fitted around the bust, and the latter helps them tuck into skirts nicely without making you lose your shape too much.  Find them HERE.  I wear size M.

Shop the Outfit:
Tank: ModCloth (exact–wearing size M)

Sandals: Old Navy (similar–I wear size 8.5, similar, similar)
Bag: Nordstrom (similar)
Necklace: c/o Dear Mushka (exact)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (exact–wearing size M)

 

Casual Summer Dress Outfit: sleevelss pink swing dress + white slide sandals + white crochet bag + long gold fringe pendant necklace + white leather earrings

Colored Dress + White or Metallic Accessories
A dress is such an easy piece to throw on in the summer.  I love pairing a colorful dress with white or metallic accessories to make it pop.  There are soooo many colors to choose from, and white or metallic accessories work with basically any!

Shop the Outfit:
Dress: Target (similar, similar, similar)
Sandals: Target (exact–wearing size 8.5, similar)
Bag: Target (similar)
Necklace: Nordstrom (similar)

 

Casual Summer Outfit: yellow printed tank + white shorts + tan thong sandals + cognac tote + long gold disc pendant necklace + tan leather earrings

White Shorts + Printed Top
I love how crisp outfits are with white shorts!  I know a lot of people are hesitant about getting white shorts dirty, but there are pairs out there that are treated with stuff that makes them less prone to stains.  Additionally, the texture and material of the shorts matters.  If they are super smooth, they might be more prone to stains versus a pair that has a little texture.  The pair I’m wearing above is old and not available, but I recently reviewed a pair from Target with the “stay clean” fabric.  They have a bit of stretch through out the leg and are under $18.  Find them HERE.

Shop the Outfit:
Tank: JCPenney (similar, similar, similar)
Shorts: Nordstrom (similar, similar)
Sandals: (similar, similar in Brown)
Bag: Nordstrom (similar in Camel/Black, similar in Lightbrown, similar)
Necklace: c/o Dear Mushka (exact)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (exact–wearing size M)

 

Casual Summer Outfit: white tie-front button-up top + denim cuffed shorts + tan thong sandals + tan crossbody bag + tan leather earrings

Top w/ Special Details + Denim Shorts
In a recent post called Types of Clothes to Build a Summer Wardrobe You Won’t Get Sick Of I mentioned the importance of solid tops that have special details.  Special details elevate a top a notch above a plain, basic tee.  And “special details” doesn’t have to mean fancy.  This top is a great example.  It’s super casual and comfy, but the waffle texture, buttons, and tie at the bottom are details that kick it up from a basic t-shirt.  This picture is actually a couple years old (haha, wow!!) but the top is still available HERE.  There’s also a super similar tank top version HERE.

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Amazon (exact–wearing size S, tank top version)
Shorts: Target (similar, similar, similar)
Sandals: (similar, similar in Brown)
Bag: Sole Society (similar)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (exact–wearing size M)

 

Summer Skirt Outfit: navy v-neck tank + navy striped skirt + yellow slide sandals + tan crossbody bag + yellow leather earrings

Skirt + Neutral Tank Top
Last up is a skirt outfit!  I love wearing skirts in the summer, especially printed ones.  I most often pair them with those comfy ModCloth tanks I mentioned in Outfit #1, and above is that same tank in navy.  So easy to do!

You can either tuck the top into the skirt, or if you hate tucking stuff in, knot the top over the skirt.  Gather the material in the back and fold it up inward so that it’s not hanging out awkwardly.  Then pull as much of it as you can to the front and either do a knot on the side or right in the middle.  Play around and see what you like best!

Shop the Outfit:
Tank: ModCloth (exact–wearing size M)
Skirt: J.Crew Factory (similar, similar, similar)
Sandals: Target (similar, similar, similar)
Bag: Nordstrom (similar in Camel/Black, similar in Lightbrown, similar)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (sold out, another option–I wear size M)
