11 Summer Outfit Ideas to Wear This Weekend, and Repeat All Season Long

11 Summer Outfit Ideas to Wear This Weekend, and Repeat All Season Long

As we look ahead to what this season has in store–Weddings! Travel! Social gatherings!—we expect plenty of exciting reasons and occasions to get dressed up. For a little bit of summer outfit inspiration, we’re feeling inspired by archival Vogue images that perfectly balance classic style with staying power and fun seasonal trends. All these photos feel just as relevant and of the moment now as they did when they were captured.

It isn’t a surprise that some of our favorite looks have the summer wardrobe pairings we love: a striped tee with a tiered midi skirt; a breezy maxidress and lace-up sandals; or a cardigan and a jean short. They’re summer outfit ideas that are incredibly simple but not lacking personality. There are casual, everyday separates that can take you from breakfast to the beach. Think lightweight fabrics and relaxed silhouettes, beautifully embroidered skirts, shell necklaces, and intricately woven sun hats you’ll want to lock in now ahead of your August holiday.

From beachwear and blouses to canvas carryalls and poolside chapeaus, we’ve broken down 11 summer outfit ideas into easy and re-creatable three- or four-step formulas. Shop all of them here, and repeat them all summer long.
