Trends from summers past are still going strong. Here are some hot outfits with a cool, modern twist.

It's that time of the year when we mosey around in shorts, dresses and sandals. When the temperature starts to reach about 90 degrees and we're smoldering in the heat, finding that perfect balance of cute and comfortable can be a bit tricky. Finding textures that will allow your precious skin to breathe or skirts that are not uncomfortably snug for hotter temperatures are just a couple of things we concern ourselves with when summer hits. When looking at our wardrobe to get dressed for the day, we want something stylish yet practical. With trends from summers past still going strong like the classic Panama hat, pretty pastels and all-in-one rompers, here are 10 stylish outfits to inspire your summer wardrobe. Note that I've injected some trendier pieces like culottes and overalls that I think most of us can pull off, but we all need a little push to magnify that look, so hopefully these street-style ensembles will inspire you.

Panama hats are all the rage, and when paired with a white tee and floral pencil skirt, the look becomes pretty fabulous.

A broken-in, comfy button-up shirt, ripped boyfriend jeans with an adorable pair of dainty sandals is your quintessential summer outfit.

I am really loving shirt dresses this season. Super easy to wear, but just make sure your shoes are killer to bring out the simplicity of the dress.

White skinny jeans are my favorite. A mint-colored shirt and accessories seal the deal with this look.

All glory to the pretty floral romper. It's a sure way to be sexy and cute for a summer day and night.

Maxi skirts aren't going anywhere, but try one in a bold color like this red hue and you will be turning heads all day.

I love basic overalls in denim or white, but when you throw in a statement necklace, it's a win-win situation.

Culottes are a huge trend right now and they are so chic. Some even appear to look like midi skirts, so surprise your admirers with a "voila" statement.

Another gorgeous all-in-one piece is the romper/pantsuit. Whether in a bold print or solid color, you will be super stylish in this trend.

If you're not too much in the mood for heels this summer, you can still look fly in some statement sneakers. They are comfortable and fashionable all in one.
