9 Simple Summer Outfits That Are Somehow Cool and Comfortable, Too

As someone who tends to put comfort first whenever getting dressed—for any occasion—I’ve found that of all the seasons, dressing comfortably in the summer is probably the most difficult. I blame it on the weather which not only rules out a lot of options due to the potential for overheating, but also tends to limit you in terms of what just looks right for a warm day or night.

The good news, however, is that while it’s admittedly not easy, it’s definitely not impossible either. All it takes is a little research, effort, and the occasional learn-from-your-mistakes moment. And, since I’ve been through all of the above (and more), I figured that today I’d share some of the outfit ideas I think are not just comfortable for the season at hand, but are actually cool, too. To see, read about, and shop all nine of the looks, just keep scrolling. 

This timeless duo will never fail you.

As you'll continue to see throughout this post, an oversized button-down is the perfect light layer for throwing on and taking off in summer.

I'm so glad the easy (and breezy) scarf top trend re-emerged this season.

Tennis-inspired style doesn't just look cool, it's conveniently comfortable, too.

Low-heeled mules are the ideal shoe to complement a mini silhouette.

Dress down your tailored shorts by styling them with a one-shoulder tank and strappy sandals.

If non-stretchy pants are still in your repertoire—no judgment if they're not—pair them with a ribbed tank and simple slides for a comfortable-yet-polished look.

An around-the-waist button-down doesn't just look cute. It also gives you a back-up layer in case temperatures drop throughout the day.

Last, but not least, we're ending with a look you'll not just want to wear now, but well into the fall season, too.
