Sharing is caring!

We are so close to summer that we can feel it. Whether summer has already started for you or you are patiently awaiting for spring showers to be over, it’s time to start planning out your summer outfits. 

From plus size tie-dye dresses to split pattern garments, this season will be one to watch in terms of fashion. While you may be eyeing your favorite cut-off shorts and a T-shirt, we have some looks that are going to help you boost your confidence and feel like a fashionista all summer long. Whether you have big plans for the season or you just want to kick back, there is a summer style for every occasion. 

Let’s dive into classic summer outfits and trends.

The Classic 

If you are going for a laid-back vibe this summer or for the days where you don’t feel like dressing up, jeans and a simple T-shirt may be your go-to. Add an edge to this look by swapping out a basic tee for a graphic T-shirt and knot it in the front to create a crop top. You can also dress this look up with some cute heels and a blingy necklace for a chic look. 

Girl on the Go

Are your summers packed with internships, meetings or other adventures that take up every minute of every day? If so, you need an outfit that’s easy and quick to put together but doesn’t sacrifice style. Plus size boutique dresses are simple to throw on in a hurry, but they hug every curve just right and they are very versatile so that you can add and subtract things from your look throughout the day to fit any occasion. Have a big meeting at 12 and then lunch with your girls after? Throw on a blazer over a fitted midi dress for your meeting and then swap it out for a kimono for lunch. 

Set It Off 

Need an outfit that looks stylish but doesn’t take a lot of effort? Matching sets will be huge this summer. Whether it’s a pant or maxi skirt set, you are sure to turn heads. While these sets usually come in bold patterns and colors, for the simpler sets, dress it up with statement jewelry and chic heels. This is an outfit that can work for almost every occasion this summer so you’ll want to keep it in rotation.

Statement Skirts 

This year, it’s all about the skirts. These bottoms are having a moment this summer. From ruffled hemlines and bold prints to flashy embellishments, these skirts will definitely turn any look up a notch. Top your skirt off with a neutral-colored blouse and heels. You can wear this for a night out or a boujee brunch.

Lounging in Style

If you plan to spend most of your summer kicking back and enjoying the little things in life, but still want to feel on-trend and excited about getting dressed, add some plus size tie-dye shirts and tops into your wardrobe. Tie-dye might be the trendiest staple right now, and they are easy to find just about anywhere or you can make them yourself. Throw these shirts on when you’re working from home to add a little spunk into your routine. These tops pair perfectly with jeans, leggings, sweatpants or a cute little mini skirt. 

Cool Girl 

The trends this summer are so exciting! And while they may be catered to the girl who likes to go bold with her looks, we encourage everyone to dabble in these fun staples. Bold prints are really a vibe this season, so don’t be afraid to mix and match bold patterns or you can even create an outfit with matching patterns from head-to-toe. You can also take bold prints and pair them with basic tops or bottoms if you want to create a more subtle look.


The athleisure trend has been popular for a while, and it will continue into the summer. Athleisure is a popular street style that allows you to take your everyday gym attire and make it fashionable outside of the gym. Whether you’re heading to your favorite yoga class or you just prefer to be in workout attire all day, throw on your favorite set and add some accents like jewelry or a statement handbag to elevate the look for all-day wear. 

Music Festival Ready 

If you are the outdoorsy type or you plan on spending a lot of your time at music festivals this summer, you’ll want a whimsical look that looks hot but keeps you cool because this summer is expected to be hot. Add a kimono to any of your concert looks or to spice up a pair of shorts and a tank top.

A Shoulder Moment 

From off the shoulder dresses to one-shoulder blouses, this chic trend could become the statement in your next favorite summer look. Off the shoulder dresses look great on their own, but you can also dress them up or down depending on the occasion. For a one-shoulder blouse or off the shoulder top, complete the look with jeans, shorts or a cute skirt. 

Summer Work Attire

If you plan on heading to the office for a 9-to-5 this summer, don’t worry. Your outfit doesn’t have to be basic! You could always style a black blazer and pants with a white v-neck shirt and a cute pair of statement heels. Or you could go bold with a patterned suit to make a statement. 

A Tie Waist 

An ultra chic trend we are loving for summer is a tie waist. Whether you are wearing a wrap dress or blouse, a tie waist is a flattering and beautiful way to accentuate your curves and highlight your figure. The tie waist also adds dimension to your look while making your entire outfit more interesting. 

Summer style doesn’t have to be predictable! Get inspired by these classic looks that take your flip flops and tank tops up a notch!
