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

It doesn't get more classic than these.

As someone who owns two pairs of these, I'll 100% vouch for them.

Not too long, not too short—this pair is just right.

This is honestly the perfect length. 

These are as close to vintage as you're going to get without buying actual vintage.

It's impossible to hate on a Mary-Jane flat.
