Cute Casual Outfits For Summer

Sweater Tank & Denim Shorts

This tank should be a staple in every closet. It’s considered a sweater tank, but it’s incredibly light and breathable. I love it in this white because you can pair it with just about any bottom. If you prefer color, it also comes in 4 other colors as well.

 

This tank would also pair perfectly with a flowy maxi skirt and lace-up heels for a special occasion, or jeans and a great pair of wedges for date night. Grab a moto jacket for when it gets chilly and your outfit is complete.

 

Moto jackets that would work with almost any outfit

 

These shorts run true to size and if you’re looking for a pair that aren’t “cheeky”, these are it. They’re long enough that they’re appropriate but they’re not too long that they look frumpy. They are the perfect in-between length.

 

Midi denim shorts are a part of my favorite casual summer outfits for over 30. I absolutely love denim shorts, but sometimes, they are just TOO short.

 

This is something that I absolutely love about Walmart fashion. They have something for everyone, tons of styles in a wide range of sizes, and they’re all at incredible prices.

 

Smocked Shorts

There’s nothing like a pair of comfortable, smocked shorts and at $7.98, these are a steal. If you’re heading to a party and you know you’re going to eat a lot, but you still want to look cute, these shorts are the way to go!

 

I love this “Clay Brick’ color but if it’s not your thing they also come in 5 other colors. All you need to pair it with is a simple tank and some flip flops and you’re good to go.

 

If you’re out on a chilly night, throw on a basic denim jacket. Want to dress it up a bit more? Throw on a pretty blouse. These would also be great as a beach cover-up. The material is super light and breathable and they’re easy to just throw in a beach bag and go.

 

Other items that would pair well with these shorts

 

 

I personally love these shorts paired with a simple white tank and this one has been a favorite of mine since I grabbed it last month. It comes in a 2-pack for only $7 and is SO soft.

 

Animal Print

The raw edges of this tee make it super casual but the animal print gives it some edge. I love it paired with simple denim shorts but it would also look great with a skirt and heels or jeans and a jacket.

 

It’s currently on sale for $10, fits true to size, and also comes in 2 other colors.

 

Workout Sets

If workout sets or athleisure are your jam, this one is for you. I’m a sucker for a good matching set and this one doesn’t disappoint. I absolutely LOVE the color and it is incredibly comfortable.

 

I know a lot of people like to wear workout sets as everyday clothes, but I also wear mine to work out and I can vouch that these leggings are squat-proof.

 

The material is soft and has just the right amount of stretch. The ultra-high waistband helps keep them in place and I don’t feel the need to constantly hike them up when I’m working out.

 

This sports bra can almost be classified as a crop top, which I love. It makes it feel like much less of a bra if you’re planning to wear it out and about. It also has removable cups.

 

Here are some other cute workout pieces

 

T-Shirt Dress

This dress comes in 4 colors and is another staple for any summer closet. Actually, these dresses work great for any season except winter (at least in NJ).

 

The t-shirt dress never goes out of style. They’re so easy to dress up or down and they’re incredibly comfortable, making it a perfect piece to have for several occasions.

 

I almost always wear something tied around my waist when wearing t-shirt dresses. It helps to give shape while still being comfortable and casual. You could even throw on a pair of sneakers and a baseball cap and you’d have yet another way to wear this dress.

 

If you want to look cute but comfortable, a t-shirt dress is the way to go. This one comes in 4 colors and it’s only $9.96!

 

Printed Leggings

These leggings are such a good find. Just like the previous pair, these are squat-proof as well. I recommend sizing up one as they run a bit small.

 

They are great quality and so easy to pair with crop tops/sports bras for working out or a casual tee for running errands.

 

Classic Striped Tank

A classic striped tee will never go out of style. This boyfriend style comes in 2 other colors and is only $8.98.

 

Denim shorts are a summer staple because you can pair them with virtually any top. Dress them up with heels for date night or throw on a pair of slides for running errands. The options are endless when creating cute casual outfits for summer when you have a great pair of denim shorts.

 

Classic White Tee

A classic white tee with cutoff shorts is my go-to when it comes to casual summer attire. This boyfriend tee fits oversized and would make a really cute outfit with jeans and sneakers as well.

 

Long Knit Cardigan

A casual, color block cardigan paired with a simple tank and cutoff shorts is a classy, trendy, and simple summer outfit. Pair it with a cross-body bag, sandals, and coordinating nail polish for a complete look.

 

This set is great if you’re looking for casual summer outfits over 40. It’s sexy, but not too revealing.

 

Floral Dress

The great thing about a maxi is that it can be dressed up or down. This one is under $40 and comes in 4 colors.

 

Printed Skirt & Lace-Up Sandals

A fun printed skirt with lace-up sandals is an easy way to look cute while still being comfortable. This smocked skirt is SO comfy (I have it in red, you can check it out here). It’s so easy to wear with just a basic white tank, but it still looks very put together.
