I seem to have an #ootd type. Comfortable. Stylish. Easy. It’s a running theme with the looks I gravitate toward. Can you blame me? I want my outfits to look like I spent hours thinking them over but really it was a 1, 2, 3 decision. Especially for summer! The weather’s hot, it’s sticky and sometimes looking good is the last thing on my mind. (I’m talking to you, Arizona weather.) But I seem to have found the solution to this dilemma – maxi skirts! They work every time and it’s an easy summer look to copy now because you probably already own and have all the pieces in your closet!
While the skirt is obviously the star of the show, I really love the relaxed feel of the knotted white tee. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing my oversized tees this way for the rest of the summer.
I’ve also found that if I keep the following tips in mind when I go shopping for new pieces, it’s easier to pull easy summer outfits together quickly.
Keep A Cohesive Color Palette With Your Wardrobe
While it’s fun to step outside your comfort zone from time to time, keeping your wardrobe staples within the same color palette can make putting outfits together a lot easier. Everything you own already goes together and it takes the guess work out of the equation when you’re looking for easy in the morning.
Let There Be A Statement Piece
This outfit comes to life because of the maxi skirt – and the fun hat doesn’t hurt! If you want to add a touch of style to any relaxed outfit, pick a piece and let it be a statement. You can add a gorgeous necklace to a basic jeans and white tee outfit, or a pop of color with a bag. Whatever it may be, that extra bit of effort will elevate any basic outfit.
Focus On Fabric
Breathable fabrics are key when trying to put together a fashionable yet easy summer outfit. Anything linen, cotton or chambray will keep you cool in the hot summer months.
