1. Summer Trousers

Pants don’t have to stay in the closet until fall! Instead of relying on your skinnies, summertime is a great opportunity to try out new silhouettes and styles for your pants. Try a pair of lightweight wide trousers in a fun boho print. Pair with a cropped top, funky purse and platform sandals, and you’ll def turn heads at the next barbecue. Get the look: Wide-frilled Trousers, Zara ($30), Pom Pom Tie Back Halter Top, Boohoo.com ($16).


2. Summer Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are both trendy and classic, which is why they work all year-long. For the summertime, look for styles that not only accentuate your fave body parts, but come in a lightweight material. Super versatile, you can wear your jumpsuit with a wide-brimmed hat for the day and switch to heels for date night. Get the look: Unique Strappy Jumpsuit, ASOS ($28), Wide-Brimmed Black and White Hat, Walmart ($23).


3. Summer Culottes

Culottes are an older, more sophisticated look. But they’re not toooo fancy that they can’t be worn during the day, hanging with your BFF or bae at a picnic in the park. They can be easily worn with everything from sneakers to sandals to stilettos, especially in a solid, neutral color like navy. Get the look: Tencel Drapey Culottes, Gap ($25), Abi Black Ribbed Cami Bodysuit, Tobi ($29).


4. Summer Skirt

You might not be a fan of dresses, but maybe you’d prefer her sister, the skirt. Skirts are super interchangeable — they can be worn with anything from tanks to tees to sweaters. Plus, if you’re not into frills and ruffles, you can always opt for a low-key skirt that is more functional yet still fashionable. Get the look: Black Short Skirt, H&M ($10), Graphic Tee, Forever 21 ($13).


5. Summer Overalls

The ’90s trend got a rad summer update with a cropped length, which makes it perf for warm summer days. It’s the cutest outfit to wear when you just want to chill with your squad around town or on date night with bae at the amusement park. Pair with a cropped top and sneakers. Get the look: Cuffed Denim Shortalls, Old Navy ($35), Take Me Back Brami Cropped Top, Free People ($30).


6. Summer Shorts

Shorts are another easy summer go-to, but for good reason: they’re versatile and can easily be worn anywhere, from a day at the beach to a concert at night. For something fun and summer-y, go for a playful printed pair that you can wear with a classic tee and pretty, delicate jewelry.
