Summer is here!! Memorial weekend feels like the (un)official start to Summer right!? With the new season that means long days at the beach and lake, weekend getaways, and warm nights dining al fresco with your closest friends. As you get ready to start working on your summer bucket list, it’s time to get your wardrobe ready for the season and stock up on the top summer style essentials, from a wear-everywhere sundress to the perfect crossbody bag.
Summer is all about laid-back and effortless fashion. Think pieces that can be thrown over a swimsuit, and double up as a dinner outfit. Scroll on for the top summer fashion trends that are perfect for rocking on the lake or at the beach all summer long.
Daytime Lake Looks
Days at the lake are easy and carefree, and your outfit should reflect this. Take in the beauty of surrounding nature in a casual and comfortable style that lets your personality shine. A breezy top made of a breathable, lightweight material is perfect for this occasion. Pair your top with linen shorts, embellished sandals and sunglasses for a style that is laidback, yet chic at the same time.
Another option that is versatile no matter what the day may bring is a swimsuit paired with denim shorts, a button-down top and your favorite sandals. Whether you're swimming the day away or heading to an impromptu dinner with friends, you’ll be prepared in this getup.
Sunset Dinner Parties
Summer calls for dining outdoors while enjoying the beautiful sunset. These occasions offer a chance to elevate your daytime look a bit, but still keep the easy, breezy style that summer is made for. Opt for a flowy midi dress paired with sandals or wedges for the perfect dinner look that’s put-together without looking overdone.
Or, choose a printed tunic top paired with white jeans, embellished sandals and statement earrings for a gorgeous summer look.
A Day at the Beach
A beach day outfit should look (and feel) totally effortless. Choose a neutral look that is perfect for a sunny day with a white swimsuit and a textured, fringe cover up to make a big impact. Add a straw bag and slide sandals to complete the look. You can even add a straw hat if you’re feeling daring.
Another option is wearing a pastel colored sundress over your swimsuit as a cover up. Pastel is super on-trend this season, and you can keep the look light and beachy with a pair of white sandals when you head to the boardwalk.
Boat Ride Outfits
If you’re heading out on a boat ride, don’t forget your swimsuit! A one-piece style is perfect if you plan to jump in the water.
If you’re in need of a cover up, opt for a casual, yet chic style that will keep you cool like a pair of lightweight shorts, a flowy top and a pair of flip flops.
Stripes are a nautical style that offer a classic charm. Choose a nautical top with white linen pants and you’ll be ready to set sail.
Summer Barbeque Style
Weekend barbeques are what summers are made of. Beach and lakeside barbecues are one of the best parts of the season, and your outfit should be simple, comfortable, and breathable since you’ll be outside.
If you’re heading to a party or gathering, keep your style effortless with a simple printed midi dress or sundress paired with sandals, flats or wedges. You can bring a cropped denim jacket to throw on if the weather cools down at night.
Another laidback option for a summer barbeque is a printed top, linen shorts and sandals or wedges. Try out one of these stunning styles for your next summer get-together.
