Dressing for warm weather can be a little difficult for women. In winter you have layers such as sweaters, winter coats and scarves, but in spring/summer you just have your clothes and accessories. This means you need just the right items to pull your outfit together. See below for some chic outfit ideas for summer.
1. Colored Shorts
Don't shy away from those brightly-colored shorts, such as coral, teal and yellow. You can match these shorts with a plain white or black T-shirt or tank, or you can top it off with a 3/4 sleeve (or long sleeve with the sleeves rolled up) chambray button-up collar shirt. Wear them with a pair of sandal wedges for date night or keep it a little more casual with flat sandals. Add accessories such as a watch and a few stacked bracelets.
Rompers are very trendy these days. They are seen in short styles or with long pants. Give your romper some grown-up style by pairing it with a great pair of heels such as wedge sandals or strappy heels. Pair it with a clutch for the evening or a small shoulder bag for day. Wear your romper with minimal accessories by choosing one of the following: large earrings, a long simple necklace, a bracelet or even a hat (think floppy straw beach hat or a straw fedora).
3. Maxi Skirt
Maxi skirts look great on just about any figure. You can keep it a little more simple by wearing a plain black skirt or be a little more bold by wearing stripes or a geometric pattern. Pair either skirt with a simple fitted top and add a jean jacket or a jean vest. You can wear this skirt with heels or flats. Add just a statement necklace or wear it with a few long layered necklaces, a bracelet and a watch.
Stripes are seen on anything from T-shirt dresses, maxi skirts, sweaters, T-shirts and tanks. Black or navy stripes look great paired with just about any plain color including red, yellow and khaki green. Wear a single-colored statement necklace, gold bracelets, watches or necklaces with your stripes.
5. Plain Tee
Those plain T-shirts can be paired with just about anything from jeans, shorts and skirts. They can be dressed up with accessories such as lightweight scarves, long necklaces and statement jewelry such as necklaces and earrings, or dressed down with just a pair of tennis shoes and your favorite pair of jean shorts. Plain T-shirts are a basic piece that you should have in your closet because it is so versatile. Styles vary, such as with a boyfriend fit, which is a little baggier, and can be worn with a lacy colored bralette with the straps peeking out beneath, and paired with either skinny jeans or fitted shorts. Fitted T-shirts look great paired with skinny jeans or skirts and heels, along with a statement necklace and a clutch for evening.
