The Oceanside Chiller
A beach trip is often a whole-day excursion, leaving you without much time to change before dinner and drinks. So ride the never-ending athleisure wave, and wear a quick-dry mesh top over a racerback swim set that can also pose as a sports bra. Cinch-waist denim pants and crisscross pool slides toe the line between IRL outfit and beach cover-up, making it even easier to go with the flow.
The Artsy Hopper
An afternoon of perusing art galleries can quickly take a lot out of you — if you're not properly outfitted for the occasion, that is. A loose T-shirt dress will keep you comfy for hours on end, as will a pair of sturdy sneakers. Punctuate the rest of the look with fun geometric-shaped accessories like a vintage-inspired pair of oversized ombré-lens sunnies and an adorable mini box purse.
The Bicycle Babe
The warm weather is made for cruisin' on your beloved two-wheeler, and the activity calls for an equally easy, breezy outfit. Make like a bandit with a no-fuss jumpsuit and a backpack to keep both arms free for the ride. Don't forget a pair of versatile sunglasses (these also have nose pads, to help avoid that whole sliding-off-the-face annoyance) and a pretty helmet to protect that noggin of yours.
The Happy-Hour Queen
The phrase "TGIF" has a whole new meaning when long-awaited summer Fridays are reinstated again — and there's no better way to celebrate early work dismissal than happy hour. If you're the kind of boss who goes straight from work to play, look no further than of-the-moment trends like the off-the-shoulder top, wide-legged culottes, and espadrilles.
The Wedding-Weekend Warrior
Make no mistake: "Wedding season" actually includes all of spring and summer, plus some of the cooler months. For a fancy outfit idea that works year-round, try a fluttery dress with flattering details like a wrap-tie front, asymmetrical hemline, and palatable colorblocking. A simple pair of black-framed sunglasses will literally go with everything, which means you can go bolder on the jewelry, shoes, and bag selection, if you choose to bling out.
