This easy outfit formula works year after year. One thing I love about wrap dresses is how easy they are to dress up or dress down, simply by pairing on with a simple sandal or pair of strappy heels.

Ribbed Top + Bermuda Shorts + Loafers

Bermuda shorts have been going strong, and this is exactly how to pull off the tricky trend. This outfit is the perfect polished look to wear right now and then later this fall by adding boots and a blazer. 

Shop the look:

Button-Down Top + Miniskirt + Sandals

A skirt-and-sandals combo is a go-to weekend look. What's especially cool about this outfit is the mix of fun colors and textures.

Shop the look:

Tee + Trousers + Flats

A tee with trousers is the ultimate versatile look that can be dressed either up or down. Bonus points for swapping in bold shades instead of neutrals.

Shop the look:

Satin Top + Sweatpants + Tube Socks

The ensemble that's the closest thing you'll get to feeling like you're wearing pajamas. Sure, you could stick with a matching sweatpant set, but I love the idea of adding in a satin top instead of a hoodie.

Shop the look:

Oversize Tee + Jeans + Loafers

Jeans and a tee never fail—especially when you have a cool pair of loafers to finish the look. I've found that a light-wash like these have major staying power in my closet.

Shop the look:

Tank Top + Bike Shorts + Sunglasses

Embrace the bike-shorts trend with a tank top and sunglasses for both comfort and polish. If you want to dress this up, simply add a boxy blazer and boots.

Shop the look:

Tee + Trousers + Heels

Tailored trousers and heels always add an extra element of polish to your basic tee. Think of this as an easy alternative to your go-to jeans look.
