Let’s be honest—while we love having a number of occasions that call for a gorgeous summer dress or a pretty white blouse, sometimes we just want to wear our favorite tees. And now that summer is officially upon us, we have the most reasons to wear a casual T-shirt outfit every day of the season.
That being said, with a comfortable staple such as a simple T-shirt, it’s easy to fall into a style rut—especially when the hot summer weather makes you want to be as cool as possible. Sure, a T-shirt and cutoffs always work for summer, but if you’re looking to take your well-worn T-shirts to a more sartorially inclined level—or at least refresh your summer ensembles—we’ve got you.
Ahead we’ve rounded up looks from some of the coolest and most stylish women out there. From unique takes on styling a T-shirt with a skirt to a new take on the jeans-and-tee combination, they are sure to inspire your casual looks all summer long.
You can’t go wrong with a T-shirt and a simple denim skirt for your summer days. Opt for a slogan tee to give it a little more oomph.
