In Summertime the living is easy and getting dressed each day should be easy too. Whether you’re going for a walk on the beach or at the lake, sitting on a restaurant patio and sipping a cold glass of white wine with girlfriends, or relaxing in the backyard with a good book, you need easy outfit recipes that you don’t have to think about and can pull from your closet.
Here are some effortless, elegant, and casual outfits that always work in the summer.
1. Cute Sundress
When I think of summer, the first thing that comes to mind is a cute white or white print sundress. It’s just such a fresh and feminine look, and all you really need to complete it is a pair of cute sandals and a pretty bag.
2. Shorts + Tropical Tee
Anything tropical is natural in your summer wardrobe like this tropical flower tee. Pair it with your favorite pair of shorts ( drawstring shorts are trending), a couple of glam metallic sandals, and a cute bag.
3. White Jeans/ Leggings + Tunic
White skinny jeans or leggings are super comfy and look fabulous paired with a long, breezy summer tunic. This is a great look for gals who like more coverage in the summer but still want to stay cool.
Cork platform sandals add texture and a summer vibe. And what about that great canteen bag? Round bags in natural materials look modern and hip in summer.
4. A Cargo Dress
Is there anything more comfortable than a ‘throw-on-and-go’ sundress for summer? This cargo dress is perfect for that. It’s practical but chic, and you can dress it up too. A faux croc bag and suede ankle flats give it more of a city vibe.
5. Cropped Pants + Summery Top
Cropped pants have really taken off. They’re the perfects solution when you don’t want to wear long pants, and you don’t feel comfortable in shorts. These are a linen blend so they are light. comfy and will keep you cool.

Want an easy formula for something to wear to a barbecue or backyard cocktail party? A casual maxi dress will never let you down. It hits the elusive sweet-spot between casual and dressy that we are always looking for, particularly when you wear it with a flat sandals and a soft, quality bag.
7. Natural Fibre Pants + Tank Top
Loose flowy pants made from hemp can be made styled into some very stylish some outfits for women over 40. Wear them long with a simple tank or another summery top. I love the ones I’m showing here. These are the ones you’ll live in all summer long.
