Summer fashion usually brings lots of bold colors, fruit prints, and interesting cut out tops galore. Not your thing? No worries. This post has all the major outfit inspo for those that love minimalistic summer outfits and want to keep it simple (yet stylish) this season!
10+ Minimalistic Summer Outfits
1. linen jumpsuit + sandals + wicker bag
I’m obsessed with linen. Yes, you’re super prone to wrinkles, but that just adds to the charm! Linen is a summer staple fabric and a jumpsuit like this will give you plenty of mixing and matching options, which is what minimalist dreams are made out of!
2. denim top + white culottes + espadrilles
Your denim/chambray top, though a bright color, still acts as a neutral and looks extra fresh when paired with white! Related: 7 Easy Outfit Formulas for Summer
3. mom shorts + bodysuit + espadrilles
It’s not even officially summer yet and I’ve worn my bodysuit more times than I can count. It’s the perfect staple piece that can be worn in different ways, yet not so bold that people start to notice that you keep wearing the same thing! Related: 6 Ways to Wear Your Denim Shorts This Summer
4. silk scarf as a top + linen pants + straw hat
Okay, a large hat may not scream “simple”, but this is a 3 piece look after all. It’s unique with the scarf as the top, easy with some slides, and still comfy with some roomy linen pants. Related: 6 Summer Essentials You Need In Your Closet
5. denim shorts + linen button down + sandals
This is already the second time in this post I’ve worn these shorts and they look different each time! Get yourself a pair of vintage shorts because they look beachy summery cool, especially when paired with a relaxed fit button down and strappy sandals.
6. culottes + bodysuit + espadrilles
Flared jeans have been coming back lately and I’m so glad they are. With the cropped and roomy bottom, I find them to be more appropriate for spring and summer. Plus, let’s not forget how fun and fresh white is this time of year!
7. bodysuit + linen pants + straw bag + sandals
Have I convinced you yet that your wardrobe needs some linen this summer? It’s relaxed and easy, yet basic enough to be mixed and matched. Oh, there’s that bodysuit again!
8. slip dress + linen blazer + basket bag + slides
I believe leopard print acts as a neutral, so that’s why I’m throwing it in this minimalistic summer outfit post! This slip dress gets toned down with a linen blazer and the charming basket bag gives those summer feels. Related: The Perfect Summer Slip Dress Outfit Combo
9. black tee + white culottes + basket bag + slides
You can still wear black in summer! Just pair it with some lighter colors (like white) to balance it out. And don’t forget the gold jewelry, which makes the perfect companion to black!
10. mom shorts + striped button down + straw hat + slides
Button downs are not too stuffy for summer, as long as they are a relaxed fit! Consider getting one that’s a little oversized…think of all the cool knotting you could do!
11. knit tank + linen pants + net bag + slides
I used to think net bags were a little weird until I found one for 99 cents at a thrift store and thought I had nothing to lose! I think it adds some great texture and interest to a look. They’re really inexpensive too, so consider getting one to up your neutral look!
12. linen jumpsuit + scarf + straw hat
Though we’re using the same jumpsuit from look #1 and the scarf as a top technique from #4, it still looks fresh and different. Mixing and matching is what it’s all about!
13. mom shorts + knit sweater + slides + hat
An easy and light knit like this is really popular this time of year. You can take it from city to beach. The open fabric makes a great extra layer for those beachy nights!
I know I thrift a lot and shop at places where you can’t exactly go out and buy the look (sorry!), but I hope you love some good ol’ fashion outfit inspo as much as me.
Here’s wishing your minimalistic summer outfit dreams will come true this year! 🙂
