Let's talk about summer outfits. I don't know about you, but I don't have much energy to come up with new ones lately. My outings are few and far between these days and I'm more worried about social distancing when I have to go out than I am about putting a cute outfit together, but that's not to say that I don't care at all.
In general, I try to wear things that don't require a lot of effort each summer. It's the one opportunity we get during the year to not have to worry about layering and dressing for inclement weather, so might as well take advantage. Lucky for you, I'm always on the hunt for easy summer outfit inspiration on Instagram, and I found plenty. I narrowed it down to seven stellar outfits that only require three pieces (some only two, so I threw in a pair of shoes or jewelry in those cases). Keep scrolling to find out how to re-create them and shop the three pieces if you're so inclined.
Gold Necklace + Blue Tank + Cream Jeans
Scarf Top + Distressed Jeans + Sneakers
Lightweight Sweater + Pleated Shorts + Mules
Fringe Jacket + White T-Shirt + Denim Skirt
Cropped Tank + Belt + Pleated Pants
Leather Blazer + Bra Top + Split-Hem Leggings
Sweater + White Tank + White Pants
