Happy Tuesday day, friends! How’s your June going so far? Today I’m excited to bring back my seasonal series, Summer of Style! My goal is always to inspire you, but also share ways to stretch your wardrobe. You’ve probably noticed that my style posts typically involve multiple styling options… but sometimes a girl just wants a simple outfit idea!
Especially in Summer, when the pace is slower and style becomes a little simpler and more minimal. (At least in the Texas heat it does!) So Summer of Style is just that… simple outfits to (hopefully) inspire your Summer wardrobe! They’re easy-to-recreate combinations, that cover all aspects of your life… work, weekend, date night, and lazy pool/beach days. (See them all HERE.)
Banana Republic has long been known for their classic styles and incredible quality, but they also have gorgeous statement pieces that add so much personality to your closet! These heavy-weight shorts are made with a certified, organically grown cotton and linen blend, with a wrap-style high waist and relaxed straight leg.
The pattern is all kinds of fun, and the style easily dresses up or down with a flat, wedge, or heel. The straw fedora is such a flattering style, plus it’s on sale!
Fit Tip: They run large, I’m wearing a regular 0, so definitely size down.
I paired them with this resort-style shirt, made of a breathable linen with an oversized cut and a dropped shoulder. Pair this shirt with everything from shorts and skirts to pants and jeans… it’s a closet staple, for sure. I love this fitted, long-sleeve option, too. I added more wow factor with the oversized leaf earrings… they’re a little heavy, but worth it for the statement!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS.
For a flirty neutral look, this Mini Wrap Dress is all kinds of fun! The hardest part is choosing which of the patterns to grab! (The blue one had me swooning, too!)
This mini wrap dress is made of a breathable cotton, perfect for steamy Summers, and is chock-full of feminine details. And bonus… it’s on sale!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS.
How fun is this safari-style print?!
Banana Republic is a great spot for guys, too, with lots of classic styles perfect for Father’s Day gifting! You can never go wrong with great basics like this Performance Polo or Soft Wash T-Shirts. These sunglasses would be a fun gift, too.
Are you a summer girl, too? Which bold neutral outfit gets your vote? See more Summer of Style inspiration from years’ past HERE. I love going back through them for new outfit ideas, and I’m just as smitten with the first combo now as I was five years ago!! See it HERE.
