Let’s take advantage of this gorgeous weather while we can. Go ahead and pack your summer calendar full of trips, parties, and all kinds of events, because we have a guide to help you navigate what to wear. Keep scrolling for three summer outfits that were designed for good times.
Pool party vibes
Take your swim trunks from pool party to block party by throwing on a coordinating short-sleeve button-down. Even if your trunks are a fun or funky pattern, a solid shirt on top tones everything down and makes it feel like a complete outfit. Rubber flip-flops are fine for the beach—but if you’re going to be making an appearance elsewhere—choose a stepped-up version in leather or canvas.
Some of the best times you’ll have this summer could be in your own town. Spend time exploring museums, ballparks, or local breweries and restaurants. If you’ll be doing a lot of walking, jeans and sneakers are where to begin. Straight-leg denim will keep you comfortable all day, or swap out the pants for a pair of shorts. Easily keep your outfit in-season with a floral shirt.
This outfit is ready for the park, a picnic, lunch on the patio, or anything else on your summer schedule. Comfortable shorts and a lightweight tee are staples—either a plain tee or short-sleeve henley do the job—then, simply toss on your favorite pair of sneakers or boat shoes. Add a layer if you’re going to be out into the evening, and finish off the look with some classic sunglasses—tortoise-shell frames are very popular.
