The Everyday Summer Outfits

Boyfriend Jeans + Crop Top

You might look your best in skinny fit jeans but they are never the best option to choose during the hot summer days. But you do not have to ditch wearing jeans altogether. Go for the more baggy and loose version like the Boyfriend Jeans. This variety does not stick to your skin, hence, keeping you comfortable throughout a hot, summer day. Pair up a chic ripped Boyfriend jeans with a summer-ready crop top. You can go for a lighter wash of the denim and do not forget to carry a flattering pair of retro sunglasses.

Denim Shorts + Graphic Tee as your Casual Summer Outfit Choice

Denim shorts are never uncalled for. And the best part is, they are both contemporary and comfortable. If you are going for a casual hangout with friends or getting ready for college, just slip on a pair of light blue denim shorts and team it up with a trendy white round-neck T-shirt. It goes without saying that white is the best colour to choose when it comes to dressing up for a summer day. Choose pretty graphic tees and roll up the sleeves to create a street-style vibe. Wear your hair in a bun and accessorize with chic glares and colourful tassel earrings. Carry a matching blue sling bag and you are good to go.

The Floral Season

Mini Skirt + Floral Printed Top

The time has come for rocking the breezy floral prints. Be it a top or a minidress, summer is the perfect season to pick out your boldest, brightest and most flowery attire.
