Summer is the perfect time to toss on a long, flowing maxi dress, some cushioned sandals and a big floppy hat. You can sport this look to the beach (cover-up style) or wear it out to brunch with your girls on Sunday. We suggest searching for a dress made out of cotton, cotton jersey or even chiffon material. Flirty florals and colorblock frocks are right on trend for summer.
To top off your casual look, gather your hair to one side and create a boho, beachy side braid (find out how!) to downplay a dressy outfit. This should take less than five minutes to achieve and will give your ensemble the casual, cool, carefree vibe you seek.
Pair a bold, bright, oversized top with skinny jeggings and/or your favorite bandage skirt for a fail-proof summer ensemble that's as casual as it is cute.
Love your high-waisted denim cutoffs? Try styling them with a silky crop tank and flirty flatforms the next time you step out. You can even add a messy top knot and an armload of bangles (think Miley Cyrus — she definitely has this look down pat) to really complete the outfit.
Dress up your laid-back look with a structured handbag in a pretty pastel or neutral shade. This is a simple yet effective way to glamorize any outfit, and it especially looks fab with a high-low skirt and plain, tucked-in tank top.
When shopping for chic summer shorts and skirts, look for casual bottoms that feature an elastic waistband. These will not only keep you cozy, but they'll look great and feel soft on your skin as well. Word to the wise, however: Don’t start walking around in your gym shorts, unless, of course, you actually do plan on hitting the gym!
