Have you ever stared at your closet and thought “Ugh, I have NOTHING to wear”? We have!

Outfit fatigue is totally a thing, especially during summer where our closets are doing double-time to meet all the outings and adventures the vacay season has to offer. We all need inspiration now and then, so we drummed up some fun and easy summer outfits and tips on how to style your own summer look. Goodbye, stylist’s block!

1. Dapper It Up

Move away from the easy T-shirt and shorts combo and go for something that’ll upgrade your look! Fashionista mama Tracy Frazier of Knowing Tracy gives your everyday shorts a refresh with just a patterned Gap shirt, and studded flats. Easy breezy.

HOW SHE STYLED IT: 

— Get more leverage out of your shirts for summer by tucking them into a pair of shorts. Roll up the sleeves, take down a few buttons, and you’ve got a cool, effortless look in the making.

— Want to dress up your shorts? Opt for flats instead of heels to add a little polish to your summer outfit without going overboard. Plus, flats will bring more balance to your entire look, while heels may bring way too much attention to your legs.

—  Sometimes a cute summer outfit is all in the details. Topping off a stylish recipe with a  jewelry or a flat brim hat can really make a difference and renew your whole look.

2. Dress Down a Dress

Get a reprieve from the heat and opt for a cute summer dress! Style guru Tabitha Shakespeare shows how you can style down a dress like her floral print style from Madewell, so you can take it from a casual day out with the kids to date night with just a quick switch of your accessories!

HOW SHE STYLED IT:

— Take notes from Tabitha in her Nine West kicks and update your outfit with a pair of white sneakers. They’re instant classics that will never go out of style, and an easy way to bring a fresh bite to your look.

— Tying a jacket around the waist creates definition, and it also comes in handy for cooler nights!

— A cute shoulder bag like Tabitha’s Coach style can really change an outfit, match the warm colors of your wardrobe with the caramel tones of leather for the perfect summery look.

3. Play Up the Basics

When all else fails (or you just want to dress up and go), get back to the basics! Janssen Bradshaw of Everyday Reading updates her essential T-shirt and denim shorts with some cute accessories.

HOW SHE STYLED IT:

— Jazz up a plain top with a delicate necklace or chain bracelet. It’s an outfit that’s perfect for casual days out while still remaining a little elevated.

— Opt for longer length shorts to pair with wedges. Bermuda shorts are gaining a lot of traction right now, so use that trendy length to your advantage!

— Add a little definition to the look by tucking the front of your T-shirt into your shorts. A little texture goes a long way.

We hope our outfit ideas have inspired you to take a second look at your closet! Versatile separates, cute accessories, and a little sartorial know-how can make a summer wardrobe last through the season without going stale. Get styling!
