10 Outfits That Will Have You Ready for Summer in No Time

We’ve spent the better part of the past few months willing summer to arrive. We planned every outfit, drew inspiration from the runway and street style stars alike, and bookmarked countless warm-weather wardrobe essentials we had already begun to save our pennies for. But, when the heat wave never came, we began to wallow in our brisk wind–ready jackets, layered knitwear, and mighty band of long trousers and vintage denim. Much to our excitement, it seems as though the sun is finally here to stay, but we’re desperately in need of some brand-new outfit inspiration to get us back into the summertime mood.

Constantly on the hunt for new outfits to try, we’ve rounded up our favorites of the looks all the cool girls are wearing. There’s cotton, silk, and tons of denim. We’re wearing our camis with midi skirts and styling jean skirts and blazers à la Jill Wallace of Little Black Boots. For morning, noon, and night, check out these 10 outfits that will have you totally ready for summer.

Dress down a silk midi skirt with an oversize cashmere sweater for a look that’s casual yet sultry at the same time. 

With a bodysuit or tank, grab a midi skirt in a print, be it classic or more whimsical. It will add a pop of something a little different, even if you’re reaching for classic silhouettes.

Make a denim skirt and T-shirt look more tailored with the addition of a menswear-inspired blazer.

Become that etherial beauty, even in the concrete jungle you call home. Add a floaty top to your straight-leg jeans.

Statement tops make all the difference. This summer, find a fave and style it with everything from tailored trousers to cutoff jean shorts.

A scarf-print dress is the one-and-done solution your wardrobe has been craving. Style it with sneakers in the morning and heels at night for a perfect transitional look.

Sometimes you just want to go for the classics with a white cotton T-shirt, denim skirt, and retro shades. Boat not included.

A lesson in how to wear knits for summer: Opt for breezy and light silhouettes, such as a tank and midi skirt in your favorite wovens. Add a pop of color with your elegant flat mules.

Dress up a pair of denim cutoffs with a statement top. Keep it low-key at the same time by opting for a classic pair of low-top sneakers.

Layer up, even in the summertime months. Try a bright white tee underneath a colorful longer-length printed sundress. Add a pair of head-turning flats for an extra pop.
