My favorite thing about summer dressing is how low-key it is. Whereas in winter, when you have to expertly layer on piece after piece in an attempt to stay warm and look good, putting together a cool outfit on a warm day can be as easy as flats and shorts. Add a simple top, some jewelry, and a trendy baseball cap and you can do anything and go anywhere—even on a date. For proof, take one look at Kate Bosworth's latest look for a daytime hang-out in NYC with her boyfriend Justin Long. 

To stroll around the city together, the Blue Crush star paired a cream-colored, poplin hoodie and a Balenciaga cap with a low-maintenance combo of lace-up flats and light-wash jean shorts. Uncomplicated yet elevated, Bosworth's outfit is everything we strive to create sartorially in the summer—and it all centers around a simple pair of denim cutoffs and some comfy-cute flats
