Do you ever have those mornings when you just can’t think? If, like me, you’re not much of a morning person, then that might be the majority of them. Aside from making it easier to forget something at home or skip a part of my makeup routine, it also tends to make it a lot harder to put together an outfit—especially if I haven’t had my coffee yet.
In order to combat this, I like to keep a mental registry of quick and simple looks I know will always work for me, made up of easy basics I already have hanging in my closet. For the summer months ahead, I’ve already found eight such looks I’ll be screenshotting and then committing to memory, all of which I have a feeling you’ll like too. To see what they are and, of course, shop them in case you’re missing any of the essentials, just keep scrolling.
Tee + Denim Shorts + Flats
Bonus points for a fun belt and timeless basket bag, but honestly, this outfit would be chic regardless of the extra accessories.
Madewell Whisper Cotton Ribbed Crewneck T-Shirt ($20)
Agolde 90's Pinch Waist High Rise Straight Leg Shorts ($148)
Mansur Gavriel Ballerina Flats ($375)
Muscle Tank + White Jeans + Sneakers
The muscle tank is the latest trend to make it to essential status, and it's only getting more useful as the weather heats up.
Lna Movement Muscle Tank ($80)
Slvrlake Grace Crop Jeans ($259)
Converse Chuck Taylor High Top Sneaker ($55)
Printed Dress + Flat Sandals
Got a printed dress? Good. Got flat sandals? Even better. You can never go wrong when pairing the two together.
LPA Bambina Dress in Anette Dot ($228)
Ancient Greek Sandals Eleftheria Sandals ($255)
Tube Top + Jeans + Mules
Tube tops are indeed back, and there's no better time than just before summer to invest in one. The good news, however, is that your "investment" doesn't need to cost more than $3.
H&M Jersey Top ($3)
Rolla's Classic Straight Jeans ($99)
Aeyde Katti Sandals ($295)
Button-Down + Shorts + Sandals
Flowy, boxer-style shorts will be your best friend this season. My favorite way to wear them currently is with an oversize button-down layered on top.
Treasure & Bond Drapey Classic Shirt ($69)
Good American Essentials Volume Shorts ($75)
Staud Tessa Platform Flip Flop ($295)
Slip Dress + Strappy Sandals
It's also a dream vacation look that works perfectly from day to night.
Realisation The Amber ($250)
Schutz Sanny Ankle Strap Sandal ($118)
Oversize Tee + Printed Pants + Sandals
You can even grab your best sleep tee and prettiest pajama pants to make this one work and just add strappy black sandals.
Afrm Bacio Oversize Tunic T-Shirt ($1597)
F.R.S for Restless Sleepers Alimede Pants ($439.6)
Who What Wear Aliyah Sandal ($99)
White Top + Jeans
Shoes are definitely optional, but there's no wrong choice when you're pairing them with such a classic combo as a white top and jeans.
Staud Matilde Top ($225)
Slvrlake London Jeans ($319)
BY FAR Nayla Sandals ($444)
