If you’re the type that likes to get up and get going without spending hours in front of the mirror, then this post is perfect for you. The last thing that I need in these hot summer days is to fuss with a lot of complicated outfits and comb through tons of accessories. That’s why I stick to my favourite easy combinations that never fail me. And what’s great about summer wardrobe is that it can be as simple as you’d like, especially with the addition of a few key pieces. Below I’ve picked out several of my summer favorites that are perfect for easy, yet stylish looks.
When it comes to footwear, Real Simple’s staff understands the impact a pair of espadrilles can have on a summer wardrobe. These flats will not only offer you plenty of comfort, but they also have a sweet ankle tie detail that’s so cute and stylish. Plus, the closed toe means you can skip the pedicure and no one will be notice. Pair these with all of your laid-back ensembles thanks to the neutral color and versatile styling.
Lyst’s editors know handbags, and when it comes to summer, their go-to satchel is the chic and easy backpack purse. This stylish accessory is perfect for the girl on the go. You can stash all of your necessities inside, and it also leaves your hands free to eat ice cream cones, give high fives, ride your bike, or whatever else you enjoy spending your summer doing.
3. Shirt Dress
Shirt dresses are the versatile, breezy, and comfy side of summer wardrobes. A sleeveless A-line version similar to the one shown would work well with a variety of shoes and could even be dressed up with the right belt placed around the waist. Wear this to outdoor barbecues, concerts, shopping, and anywhere you need to look effortlessly chic.
One piece outfits definitely make for easy summer ensembles, and rompers are especially cute choices. The romantic romper pictured above features the off-the-shoulder trend that’s so popular this season, in addition to a flattering cut and general ease that this piece offers. Pair it with your favorite wedges, trusty handbag, and head out the door because this outfit requires minimal accessories thanks to all of the beautiful detailing.
5. Maxi Dress
Fashion experts at Who What Wear like an easy dress just as much as I do, which is why I’ve picked this lovely golden yellow crochet halter maxi. When you want to look great without spending a lot of time getting dressed, a flattering dress is the way to go. This is perfect for a weekend rendezvous paired with your favorite strappy gladiators, or dressed up with a pair of heels and a simple statement earring.
If easy dressing is your preference as well, there are so many chic and effortless options to choose from this season. As you can see, including just five pieces that can be mixed and matched among your favorite shoes, handbags, and accessories has the potential to simplify your routine without sacrificing style or comfort. Have fun picking the options that work best for you and enjoy your stress-free summer in style.
