Summertime is the season of events. Whether it’s a garden party, summer wedding, graduation, or fun night out with friends, it’s the perfect time of year to rock flirty and statement accessories. You may go for a satchel bag that will keep your chic outfits effortless or a quirky lip clutch to make it look playful. Just look for textures and prints that make an impact and can dress up your simple outfits. Mercury sunglasses and sun hats will keep your summer looks stylish and functional while a leather tote will keep your outfits effortless and cool. If you’re going on vacation, opt for an oversized tote that will never let you down.

  1. Summer Sandals

Summer is the perfect time for road trips, beach walks, and even outdoor adventures, so you must be equipped with stylish yet functional summer sandals to keep your feet fresh and comfortable to bear long walks. If you’re heading to a music festival, a pair of gladiators will complement your Coachella outfits while a pair of wedges will give some flair to your casual street looks.

  1. Printed Dresses

When opting for dresses, choose a style in your favorite fit and shape to look effortlessly sophisticated every time you wear them. Since a maxi dress is a summer savior, which is always comfortable and easy to throw on, choose one in summer-inspired prints. Breton stripes, Moroccan-inspired print, tie dye patterns, retro floral, Aztec and such can make your feminine looks summer-inspired. If you’re petite, get clever with the waistband and roll your hemlines by creating a cute maxi knot. If you’re tall, hike it up to mid-waist and make it a midi length.

  1. Lace or Cut-Out Dresses

If you’re not a fan of prints, simply look for lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton, viscose, rayon, or a blend of natural fibers. Like fashion blogger Sydne Summer, go for a pastel yellow lace dress to keep your feminine style breezy and chic. You may keep your summer looks simple, or go for embellishments and embroidery if you want something more fashion-forward.

  1. Crop Tops or Tank Tops

This might seem like a given, but you need a crop top or a tank top in your closet. Just pick one that flatters your figure. For instance, you may look for longer hems if you want coverage, a hi-low style if you want something trendy or a basic, or a crop top if you’re a traditional girl. You can actually wear them with your crochet shorts, lace skirts, cut-off denim shorts and such to keep your street style effortlessly cool.

  1. Cool Girl Shorts

Trade your jeans and basic trousers with shorts as they’re a lifesaver in the summer. You may actually look for shorts in a lightweight fabric or something heavy-duty like jeans that will keep you both cool and breezy. Like fashion blogger Sydne Summer, you may pair your chic shorts with a chiffon button-down top for a clean, crisp look or pair your denim cut-offs with a chambray shirt for a daytime walk on the town. Basic and simple, our summer checklist will make your summer dressing easier and more effortless by keeping your looks stylish at the same time functional in the scorching heat this summer.
