Figuring out which summer outfits to wear might be a tougher task than you remember. For the last few years, summer style hasn’t really included much thought about “real” clothes. Most people have had their favorite sweatsuits and loungewear in heavy rotation.
Now that events are happening again and travel plans are on the horizon, we’re looking to some of our favorite street style outfits for the summer fashion inspiration we need to get the ideas flowing.
Summer 2022 Fashion Trends
Many trends taking center stage right now are rooted in the latest revival of nostalgic fashion. Take, for instance, the simple pairing of a ’90-inspired slip dress with sneakers or a 2000s-era graphic T-shirt with low-rise jeans and colorful flatforms. Summer is an ideal season to experiment with classic high-low pairings as well. Style a designer staple — like a voluminous midi skirt — with a more casual piece, whether it’s an understated tank top or minimalist blouse.
Best Plus-Size Summer Outfits
Searching for plus-size summer outfits but don’t know where to start? One seasonal ensemble that works for all occasions is a denim dress styled with long socks and loafers. Or you can pair a classic white button-up tucked into a striped skirt, topped off with chunky bangles and neutral espadrilles.
Ahead, the POPSUGAR fashion team has curated a list of stylish summer outfit ideas that will leave you with #OOTD inspo for days. Think bold prints and festive colors, retro influences, and breezy silhouettes and fabrics (hello, linen and silk!). All of these pieces are relatively straightforward to try for yourself — yes, even if you’re still easing back into the whole concept of getting dressed. Read on to kick-start your summer wardrobe with 100 outfit ideas.
