  1. Sarong

Don your sarong wrap or beach cover-up and make it the center of your look, wearing one summer themed piece at a time. Later on, pair it with a structured jacket or shoes to make it city-appropriate.

  1. Cropped Top

Balance out a crop top with wide legged pants in a solid color. This contrast will come off as light, airy but strong at the same time, a great look for a quick trip to the beach.

  1. Kimono Jacket

A breezy kimono jacket can instantly add a summer feel to your outfit or a dramatic flair depending on the color and print. Choose a versatile piece you can strut from the shore to the mall.

  1. Bandana

Spruce up a plain outfit by tying a bandana around your neck for that Parisian edge.

  1. Sundress

Wear a blouse underneath your sundress for a put together look. You can easily add or subtract this layer depending on where you’re headed to next.

  1. Pleated Skirt

This cute off-shoulder top and pleated skirt ensemble just speaks summer vacation and brunch! Put on a charming smile and you’re good to go.

  1. Strapped Up

  1. Denim Skirt

Wearing a denim skirt with any top makes it versatile to strut from the beach to the city without the formal appeal.

  1. Leather

It might be too hot for leather, but we can’t deny that adding a structured leather jacket to any outfit makes it so much better even with a summer ensemble. Consider trying a bright colored piece when it’s cooler.

  1. Funky Shorts

Center your outfit on a key piece in a loud print, highlight a pair of shorts in a bold color and tassel fringe. Switch your footwear from flip flops to mules to make the look appropriate for where you’re headed.

  1. Cropped Pants

Upgrade a statement tee with a pair of loose cropped pants in a fun color. It’s effortless and comfy at the same time.

  1. Body Suit

Sport a cute one-piece as a body suit and wear it under shorts. Show off interesting cuts and prints.

  1. Basic

The lazy girl’s summer go-to outfit: a plain muscle tee and shorts. Yes, you can def dress this up with a nice pair of shoes or oxfords.

  1. Maxi

Get more looks out of your maxi by layering it with another top and cover-up. Tie a side knot at the bottom to give the illusion of a cut or silhouette.

  1. Tennis Skirt

Look fresh in a tennis skirt paired with any plain top. Convert your shoes from sneakers to loafers to create a summer look or preppy outfit.
