SummerStyleTips-colored-bag

Add a pop of color

Find a brightly colored bag or shoes to pair with your wardrobe basics—it’ll infuse a little summer into an otherwise neutral outfit.
SummerStyleTips-dressy-shorts

Get a dressier pair of shorts

They don’t have to break the bank, but have a pair of shorts in a more tailored silhouette on hand. In the right cut and fabric, they can work for a casual office look or a dressy night out.
SummerStyleTips-overalls

Do try overalls

Overalls are no longer just for kids— Style them with anything from a button-down to a tank top. Most important, find a fit and length that flatters you.

SummerStyleTips-crop-top

Don’t be afraid to show some skin

The crop-top trend is wonderful for summer. Pair a loose version of the trend with a high-waisted bottom to avoid showing a little too much tummy.
SummerStyleTips-lace-top

Go girly with a lace top

You can dress up a lace top with a skirt and heels or dress it down with denim shorts and sandals. Even try pairing it with moto boots and a leather jacket to turn the feminine piece into something more edgy.
SummerStyleTips-boots

Wear your boots

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you can’t wear boots anymore. Sure, they’re heavier than a summer sandal, but they add a little edge to sweet summer shorts or a sundress.
SummerStyleTips-layer

Continue to layer

Layering isn’t just for cold months. Simply adding a T-shirt under a sundress or a bustier over a button-down is ideal for summer. Try this styling trick when you’re totally bored with your favorite summer outfits.
SummerStyleTips-white-shirt

Don a classic white shirt

Classic shirting gets praises for all seasons, and summer is no exception. Basically, every outfit looks polished when you start with a crisp white shirt—you can even throw it over a bathing suit at the beach.
SummerStyleTips-tshirt-dress

Own a T-shirt dress

The throw-on-and-go T-shirt dress is perfect for summer. Wear yours from day to night by transitioning into slightly fancier footwear and accessories. Bonus: T-shirt dresses rarely wrinkle so they are a great piece to pack for your summer getaway!
SummerStyleTips-white

Don’t be afraid to wear all white

White is the ultimate summer neutral and feels so light and airy that you should totally try styling it head-to-toe.
