These outfits are a great example of quick and easy summer looks. Summer fashion is all about being able to run out the door for a beach day or get ready quickly for that concert in Central Park that starts in an hour. Rompers are a great choice to stay comfortable and cool in the summer heat. Throw over a light cardigan for an even trendier look. Don’t be afraid to finish the look with boots or opt for the typical sandals or flats.

Pants: Kohl’s

Shoes: Minnetonka

Sunglasses: music festival

Necklace: handmade

For a more original look, try mixing patterns. These fun pants are another comfortable piece for summer because they are comparable to sweat pants in comfort level, but are more fashionable. Instead of going with a solid colored top, pair them with a casual patterned tee like this tie dye crop top. The possibilities are endless with this look, as these pants come in all different colors and patterns, as do casual tees. Don’t forget your sunglasses!

Shirt: American Apparel

Bag and jeans: Gap

Shoes: Vans

Sunglasses: Ray Bans

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean your jeans have to be put away. Denim jeans are perfect for cooler nights or even just with tanks and short sleeved shirts. Baggy jeans will probably keep you cooler in the summer heat and distressed bottoms can really make a statement. Try pairing them with more structured tops, like this fun collared one. Bright colored tops are great for summer and patterned ones are really eye-catching. Finish the look with classic sneakers like Vans or Converse.

Tank: Target

Kimono: Gypsy Warrior

Shorts: Free People

Necklace: HLSK (online)

Necklace and sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

Boots: DSW

Oftentimes when we think of summer, we think of bright colors, but dark colors are great as well. Kimonos are lightweight and perfect for layering over tanks with shorts for an edgy, vintage look. Keep the other pieces basic colors to really make the kimono a statement piece. Scalloped shorts are really unique and can even be your next DIY project in the spare time you may have over summer break. Finish the look with combat boots.

Dress: H&M

Jacket: Old Navy

Sandals: Easy Pickins

Headband: Beauty Supply Store

While rompers have really been popular as of late, nothing beats the classic sundress. These are another easy piece to throw on while heading out the door for some fun in the sun, and come in endless styles. Floral prints probably come to mind, but you can also opt for solids and spice them up with fun accessories and the perfect pair of wedges. Denim jackets are lightweight and great for layering over dresses and rompers. Try going for a bohemian look with an around the head headpiece or channel your inner flower child with a flower crown to finish the look.

Shoes and necklace: gift

If dresses aren’t really your thing and you’re not feeling the whole printed pants look, go for solid colored joggers instead. They are super comfortable and perfect for a quick, stylish look. Try out this simplistic look by choosing a denim shirt instead of denim bottoms. Black and blue is a great color combination if you don’t really like bright colors and summer prints. Tuck the pants into combat boots, throw on a necklace and you’re out the door.
