The summer heat is in full swing, which means lightweight summer outfits are a must. Of course, you can always turn to your trusted shorts and t-shirts, but sometimes you may want to elevate things a little. Here are 6 lightweight summer outfit ideas that will leave you feeling and looking amazing all summer long:
1. Maxi Dress
Not only is a maxi dress an effortlessly chic outfit, but it also offers you some extra coverage from the sun without being too hot. If you want even more coverage you can opt for something with sleeves. Maxi dresses can be dressed up or down and worn day or night.
2. Flowy Pants
Light, loose and flowy clothing will keep you so much cooler than anything tight. Flowy pants are perfect for keeping your legs sun safe and also staying cool. Pair your favorite flowy pants with a cute graphic tee or tank to complete the look.
3. Sports Dress
If sun coverage isn’t an issue, a sports dress is a must-add to your summer wardrobe. They are meant for exercise and the fabric will keep you cool while looking stylish. Think of a sports dress as elevated athleisure to replace your leggings in the summer!
4. Linen Skirt
Linen is a must-have summer fabric because it’s cool and breezy. Linen pants are an essential you probably already own, but what about a linen skirt? These chic skirts are super trendy and feel a little more elevated than a cotton skirt. Pair yours with a t-shirt or blouse, or even a matching linen set.
5. Slip Dress
Slip dresses are a great summer option, and you can give your arms a little extra protection by pairing yours with a button-down. This also makes the look a little more casual and perfect for daytime wear.
6. Midi Skirt
Of course, we can’t forget the classic midi skirt. Mid-length skirts are great for keeping your legs safe from the sun and look super cute paired with a cute top, and sandals or sneakers.
Rock it like a Redhead!
