Our summer agenda is pretty full. Between beach days and rosé evenings, the last thing we want to spend time on is putting together an outfit from a pile of clothes. That’s where summer uniforms come in. Chic and easy to assemble, these five looks free up your brain to enjoy the very best bits of life from now until September.
A Sundress + Sneakers
This combination is comfortable, breezy and requires basically no thought. An airy sundress will keep you cool on the hottest days, and crisp sneakers keep the overall vibe casual and effortless.
A White T-Shirt + White Jeans + Strappy Sandals
What would summer be without white jeans? Not much, if you ask us. This year we’re keeping things monochromatic with a white tee and a very minimalist sandal (in either white or, ooo , rose gold). In a bright palette, this look is more put together than you’d expect a T-shirt-and-jeans combo to be. Just make sure to keep a stain-fighting stick nearby at all times.
A Striped Tee + Cutoff Shorts + Flat Espadrilles
Hello, weekend favorite. Before you say that cutoffs are too young, know that styling makes all the difference. Instead of pairing them with a tank top and flip-flops, wear your jean shorts with a more modest striped tee and cool espadrilles.
A Tank Top + A Work-wear Vest + Culottes
Think pants are too hot for high temps? Slip into a pair of wide-leg culottes and think again. With a tucked-in tank top and open vest, this ensemble is professional without feeling too buttoned-up. Also keep in mind that it would look just as good with heeled sandals as it does with loafers (or even sneakers!), making this ensemble much more versatile than you might expect.
A T-Shirt + A Midi Skirt + Nude Flats
A swingy midi skirt is a year-round staple, but it lives its best life from May to August. You could dress it up with a ruffled top and heels, but we’re all about keeping it low-key with a simple tee and nude flats (to let the skirt’s pattern be the true star). The high waist is super flattering—especially with a tucked-in shirt—and the mid-calf length means you won’t constantly worry about flashing anyone. Score.
