We’re calling it now: Summer 2023 is going to be all about staying comfy. We all learned how to truly embrace cozy looks over 2020 and 2021, with many of us upgrading our rotation of comfy work-from-home clothes and opting for loungewear looks every day of the week, so there’s no reason to ditch that approach now. The great news about all of this is that, in addition to feeling comfortable during the summer months, there are some seasonal styles you can rock that are guaranteed to have you feeling as cute as you do comfy.
No matter what your summer plans include, from reunions in the backyard to weekly family BBQs to picnics and hikes in the great outdoors, these comfy style ideas will have you covered from June through September.
The first style on our list is all about breezy summer dresses. Summer dresses are as comfy as your favorite pajamas all while winning you major style points. There are also so many different options to choose from that you can really mold this wardrobe centerpiece to fit your specific look or vibe you want to go for.
For a bohemian style, go for a sleeveless tiered maxi dress in a pattern such as a patchwork geo or lovely blue floral. To complete this look, simply pair your boho dress with a pair of neutral-toned strappy sandals and some funky jewelry. Or, if you’re going for more of a trendy style, opt for a sleeveless linen swing dress in an on-trend hue such as olive green and pair your dress with your favorite white or beige sneakers and some simple gold earrings or a delicate three-layer necklace.
Whatever style you choose, your summer dress is sure to evoke a dreamy summer feeling and keep you comfy no matter where the day takes you.
For the ultimate in cute and casual style, look no further than summer-ready women’s loungewear. While people often associate weekend lounging and that peak cozy vibe with sweater weather, you can assemble some seriously lovely summer looks with your loungewear as well.
If you like the idea of a casual summer style, opt for a pair of mid-rise elastic waist pull-on crop pants or comfy summer shorts in a summery print like palm leaves paired with a relaxed tee in a complementary color. This effortless and comfy outfit also works great with solid-color bottoms and a print tee. Either way, simply pair this combo with your comfiest sandals or sneakers for a cozy casual ensemble you’ll want to rock all summer long.
For a look that gives off some cute summer-ready vibes, opt for a pair of knit high-rise seersucker capri pants in a vibrant hue like citron yellow paired with your favorite breezy top. Look for a short-sleeve blouse in a fun print like floral, as long as the print features colors that complement the pants. You can also definitely rock these pants with a navy sleeveless crewneck top and some cute jewelry like fruit-shaped stud earrings or a daisy pendant necklace to bring the look together.
With one of these outfits on, you’ll be ready for a park picnic that you don’t need to change out of to relax at home afterward.
Creating outfits using activewear is an easy way to pull off a stylish sporty look that’s comfy for summer. If you’re someone who likes to spend a lot of the warmer months on long neighborhood walks with friends, planning the best warm-weather hikes, or sitting lakeside on summer camping trips, then this might be the perfect summer style for you.
Opt for a moisture-wicking UPF short-sleeve tunic top or a moisture-wicking short-sleeve twist hem top in a summer shade like lavender or peach. For your bottoms, go with your favorite mesh workout shorts or yoga pants for a sporty look that’ll keep you comfy no matter what mountain you’re climbing or where you’re pitching your tent.
Another great take on this style is a print cotton women’s tank top and cropped yoga pants paired with your favorite sneakers and hat. This look can really work with any moisture-wicking or breezy women’s summer shirt and activewear bottoms, so feel free to create as many combos as your heart desires.
These are just three styles you can choose from this summer. The great thing about any of these styles, from boho to casual to sporty, is that you can easily achieve them while still sticking to your comfiest clothes. After all, park picnics, lake visits, backyard BBQs, and epic hikes (summer, is that you?) are all that much more enjoyable in comfortable outfits!
