Easy Summer Outfit Ideas Already In Your Closet

easy summer outfit ideas

Do you have days when you stare into your closet and think, “I have nothing to wear”? This always seems to happen to me after I’ve stayed up late, slept a little longer than I should have, and run behind. Or when the morning has gotten away from me. These are also the days I think I have an outfit planned, but once it’s on, it just doesn’t look right, and then I’m scrambling. It’s not a great way to start the day. So with that in mind, I’m sharing seven easy summer outfit ideas (one for each day of the week) you already have in your closet.


How to Style Clothes You Already Have

1 – Blazer, Plain Tee, Shorts

When you’re stumped with what to wear, go back to basics. This outfit is good if you want something more elevated and will also work in a relaxed office environment.

2 – Linen Button-Up & White Pants

Despite the drawback of wrinkling, I love linen in the summer. Linen button-ups are light and airy and pair well with everything from shorts to trousers. Opt for a contrasting color to add more interest to the outfit.

3 – Sundress, Cardigan, Sneakers

Grab an oversized cardigan to wear over your favorite sundress for that comfort meets style look. And just because you’re wearing a dress doesn’t mean you must wear heels or sandals. Opt for sneakers for a relaxed vibe.

4 – Tank Top, Kimono, Denim Shorts

Light and breezy, kimonos are the perfect summer layer for a day that’s not too hot. They instantly take your basic shorts and tank outfit up a notch with a fun boho vibe! For the most flattering proportions, make sure your kimono length is either longer or shorter than your shorts.

5 – Wide Leg Pants, Button-Up, Sandals

Wide-leg pants are the perfect warm-weather pant. I love that, at first glance, these loose-fitting trousers look like a maxi skirt, and then when you walk, you see the movement from the wide legs and swish factor. Pair them with a button-up tied at the waist for a breezy look.

6 – Tank Top, Bermuda Shorts, Dress Worn as a Duster

Wearing a shirt dress as a duster adds more interest to your outfit and is a refreshing change from a cardigan or jacket. This combo looks great whether your Bermuda shorts are denim, twill or dressy.


7 – Tee (Worn Over a Dress), Sandals

One of my favorite tricks to double the wear of my dresses is to transform them into a skirt by layering a t-shirt over it. Simply tie a knot with your tee at the waist.
