How to Dress for Summer When You're Not on Vacation All the Time

Allyson Payer

Throughout May to September, Instagram-induced FOMO is real. It doesn't get more Instagram-worthy than a carefree summer vacation, so it makes sense that people are posting envious beach trips and European adventures. But, alas, it's one of summer's biggest myths that everyone is on vacation all the time. While hopefully, you do get to log in some vacation days, chances are that you're spending most of the season at the office and staying local on the weekends (probably with far fewer Instagram posts).

We looked to street style to provide said inspiration and found a slew of polished outfit ideas that won't make you sweat. Not only that, but we sourced 13 pieces that you'll wear on repeat this summer, regardless of whether you're OOO or not.

Read on for all the polished summer outfit and shopping inspiration your heart desires.
