8 Summer Outfits to Throw On When You Just Can't Think

Do you ever have those mornings when you just can’t think? If, like me, you’re not much of a morning person, then that might be the majority of them. Aside from making it easier to forget something at home or skip a part of my makeup routine, it also tends to make it a lot harder to put together an outfit—especially if I haven’t had my coffee yet.

In order to combat this, I like to keep a mental registry of quick and simple looks I know will always work for me, made up of easy basics I already have hanging in my closet. For the summer months ahead, I’ve already found eight such looks I’ll be screenshotting and then committing to memory, all of which I have a feeling you’ll like too. To see what they are and, of course, shop them in case you’re missing any of the essentials, just keep scrolling.

Tee + Denim Shorts + Flats 

Bonus points for a fun belt and timeless basket bag, but honestly, this outfit would be chic regardless of the extra accessories. 

Muscle Tank + White Jeans + Sneakers

The muscle tank is the latest trend to make it to essential status, and it's only getting more useful as the weather heats up.

Printed Dress + Flat Sandals

Got a printed dress? Good. Got flat sandals? Even better. You can never go wrong when pairing the two together. 

Tube Top + Jeans + Mules

Tube tops are indeed back, and there's no better time than just before summer to invest in one. The good news, however, is that your "investment" doesn't need to cost more than $3.

Button-Down + Shorts + Sandals

Flowy, boxer-style shorts will be your best friend this season. My favorite way to wear them currently is with an oversize button-down layered on top.

Slip Dress + Strappy Sandals

It's also a dream vacation look that works perfectly from day to night.

Oversize Tee + Printed Pants + Sandals

You can even grab your best sleep tee and prettiest pajama pants to make this one work and just add strappy black sandals.

White Top + Jeans

Shoes are definitely optional, but there's no wrong choice when you're pairing them with such a classic combo as a white top and jeans.
