In today’s post, I’m rounding up my favorite summer outfits that I have posted on my Instagram lately. I’ve been wearing these outfits out and about – to church, the grocery store and my family’s house (pretty much the only acceptable outings during a pandemic). They are all super cute and comfortable!
Over the last few years, as I have matured, and elevated my style (at least in my opinion) I have definitely started to prioritize comfort and simplicity in my wardrobe. Most of these outfits are very simple and monochromatic. I love those types of neutrals as the outfits looks classy and timeless. The only exception are the two floral midi dresses which still look very classic.
Summer Trend #1: The Eyelet Dress
One of the biggest trends this summer are eyelet details on all clothing items. In this super adorable summer look, I’m wearing the Elizabeth and James Callei Floral Crochet-Trim A-Line Dress in an pretty ivory color. As I shared on my Instagram post, this dress reminds me of Cape Town, South Africa. I wore it there while exploring the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. It is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places and I love associating this dress with those memories. If you’re interested, you can view my travel diary from Cape Town here.
Summer Trend #2: The Midi Dress
Floral midi dresses are definitely still popular this summer. I personally love how versatile they are – you can wear them to work, church or out to dinner. They can be easily dressed up or down. I’m sharing three different options today – a pretty yellow maxi dress, this beautiful floral fuschia midi dress from Vince Camuto and a gorgeous square neck dandelion maxi dress.
Summer Trend #3: Mid Rise Shorts
I don’t know about you, but day to day I’ve been living in shorts and simple tops lately. It’s been so hot here! I found the best mid rise boyfriend shorts from Abercrombie that are so versatile and extremely flattering! For reference, I’m wearing Size 25 in the washed black color. I also adore these white shorts for summer as they look so classy and can be easily dressed up!
Summer Trend #4: Raw hem skinny jeans
I love wearing skinny jeans with camis during summertime evenings. I think the combination is very flattering and looks so stylish. One of the biggest trends that I’ve been seeing in 2020 are skinny jeans with ram hem details. I think they look super edgy and so cool! I have several different pairs that I love:
- Dark Black Wash Raw Hem Skinny Jeans from Frame (another option here)
- Light Wash Raw Hem Skinny Jeans from Frame
- Burgundy Fringe Hem Skinny Jeans (similar here)
For my first look, I paired a lovely tie strap cami with my dark black Frame skinny jeans. You can dress this look up with ankle strap heels or if you prefer a more casual look, I also love how the jeans look with black sandals. This is such a cute outfit that would be perfect for date night!
For the second look, I styled my wine colored fringe hem skinny jeans with a black lace cami and black strap leather sandals from Franco Sarto. I think this outfit is timeless. It looks so classy! I would wear this out to dinner, for date night or to a party. You can even wear to church or to work on casual Fridays if you throw on a cute blazer over it! I recommend this one from Mural.
For the third look, I paired my light wash raw hem skinny jeans with a cute peplum top and navy wedges. This is another outfit that can be worn literally anywhere – the office, church, a party or out to dinner. It’s super simple but looks really cute!
