While the jean shorts and a tank combo is cute, why not turn up the heat this summer? Here’s a list of outfit ideas inspired by what we saw on this seasons’ runways and new designer collections. These designer inspired outfits will help to ensure that you’re the best dressed no matter where you travel, or what you’re doing, this summer.
1. The Little Mermaid
Take Ariel’s glamour onto the land by combining an off the shoulder top with a mermaid-fit skirt and heels.
2. Throw Some Shade
Straw hats scream summer. Fedoras and floppy hats will keep you looking and feeling cool.
3. Feathers And Fringe
Add a little movement to your outfit with fun textures, like feather and fringe. Keeping the color scheme more neutral will ensure you look cute, not costumey.
4. All Ruffled Up
Balance a ruffled bralette-top with a pair of high-waisted bottoms. Ruffles were seen on the runways at Erdem, Mulberry, Marc Jacobs, and Dries Van Noten this season. Adding ruffles gives your outfit a flirty, feminine touch.
5. Romper And Earrings
A simple romper paired with a slicked-back ponytail provides the perfect canvas to show off a fun pair of earrings. Two great earring trends for this summer are tassels and puff-balls.
6. Perks Of Being A Wallflower
This season we saw head-to-toe floral prints on the runways of Chloe, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu and Victoria Beckham. An easy way to pull off this trend is by wearing a two-piece floral set.
7. Pump it Up
Bright pink pumps and a matching lipstick pair well with the denim-on-denim trend this summer.
8. Knot Your Classic Topknot
Change up the appearance of a classic topknot by tying a bandana around the base. It’s the perfect boho hairdo to top off a flirty, cut-out dress.
9. Ice Ice Baby
Kurt Cobain’s ’90s-style white sunglasses are making a massive comeback. At Coachella, they were seen on artists like Pharrell and Migos. Pair them with an all-white outfit and you’ll be looking as cool as the celebrities.
10. Ooh Baby Baby
While we’re on the topic of the 90’s, you can channel Courtney Love with a babydoll dress and undone hair. Cherry print is the cherry on top!
11. Parisian Rock Star
What’s cooler than Parisians and rock stars? Max out your coolness factor by pairing a Parisian neck scarf, flats, and a striped top, with your favorite rock star shades and a motorcycle jacket.
12. That’s a Wrap!
Effortlessly channel elegance with a wrap dress, silk slip-on sandals, and a ponytail topped with a bow.
13. She Wears The Pants
Elevate your look (literally) with platform sandals to perfectly show off a pair of funky-bottomed pants.
14. White Stripes
If floral isn’t your thing, try stripes! Statement stripes were spotted across the runways of Balmain, Barbara Bui, Nina Ricci, Victoria Beckham, and Sonia Rykiel this season. Stripes are a super cute and easy trend to try out this summer.
15. Bridget Bardot Inspired
Polka dots hit the spot when looking for an irresistible print for your bralette-top and skirt combo.
16. Fun Flamenco
You don’t need to have any dancing skills to pull of this flamenco-inspired look! A puff-ball bag and a pair of wrap-up heels are adorable accents to pair with any statement skirt.
