But, with some color palette change-up, trading season-appropriate fabrics, and a few helpful item swaps can keep you summer-ready no time. Keep on reading for our 5 ways to transition your looks from spring to summer.
- Opt for sheer, breezy, and breathable fabrics on your outfit.
Cotton, linen, lace, chiffon, chambray, rayon and such are breathable fabrics perfect for the summer. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, flaunt your feminine and romantic vibe with a breezy high-low dress and pink accessories on your street style. Or, go summery with a sheer midi skirt and pastel top that will give you enough cover while keeping you comfortable in the scorching heat.
- Go shorter on your hemlines and lower on your necklines.
Summer is the time to shed your sleeves and go for season-appropriate hemlines and necklines. Play around with different dress hemlines this summer. Try a hi-low maxi or a girly handkerchief cut to show a little leg. Also, reach for light or white bottoms in a shorter length and start wearing them with sandals instead of sneakers or stilettos. Like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim, flaunt your sexy shoulders with off-shoulder rompers, dresses, and tops perfect for the summer.
- Look effortlessly cool in crop tops.
Nothing says summer like a beautifully cropped top. Whether it’s a chambray shirt cropped or a chic bandeau top, crop tops never seem to go out of style and can be mixed or matched with jeans, shorts, or even skirts. Crochet tops usually start appearing during the spring time, so if you already own one, wear them as they’re totally acceptable for the summer time. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, team these tops with your flared jeans for slimming yet form-flattering look.

Summertime is the season to embrace bright hues and pastel shades. So, start transitioning your look by starting with a brightly colored scarf, hat, or shoes then your outfit. Ditch the dark denim and reach for light or white bottoms in a shorter length. Like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim, you may wear neon shades with your pastel outfits to add some fruity vibe on your summer looks. Or, go sweet with pastel shades of blue and pink on your top that will go great with a white pair of denim shorts like Annabelle Fleur did.
