Four Casual Summer Outfits to Copy + Summer Outfit Guides NOW AVAILABLE!

Let’s talk summer style! Today I’m sharing four casual summer outfits to help you get dressed easily. These are all from the brand new Summer Wardrobe & Outfit Guides that are NOW AVAILABLE in the PMT Shop!

I know you want to feel stylish and put together this summer, but life is busy, and figuring out style can be a hassle. With the Summer Wardrobe & Outfit Guides, you’ll have a shortcut to better style so that you can feel good in what you wear during all of your summer fun!

Summer Wardrobe & Outfit Guides are available for CASUAL and WORKWEAR. Choose whichever option is best for you (or both)! Check them out and get all the details, HERE.

I designed these guides so that you could use pieces from your own closet, identify gaps in your wardrobe, and find some new gems to add, and easily create outfits.

A well-built wardrobe has a diversity of clothes. It includes basic pieces that connect and pull everything together and interesting pieces that add life and character. The Summer Wardrobe & Outfit Guides help you think through all of the different wardrobe building blocks so that you can easily put together outfits that look stylish AND interesting.

Let’s see how some of them work together! If you need summer outfit inspiration, here are four casual summer outfits that I copied from the guide–that you can copy, too!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.


Casual Outfit for Summer: orange brown t-shirt + denim shorts + white sandals + white earringscasual summer outfit orange colored tee denim shorts

1. Colored Basic Tee + Denim Shorts
First up, take one of your favorite colored basic tops and pair it with denim shorts. What’s fun about this is that you can use any colored top, and you’ll create an outfit. The color adds visual interest. Gotta love how easy that is!

Polish it off with accessories. Bonus points if you bookend the look with same-colored sandals and earrings!

Shop the Outfit #1:
T-shirt: Amazon (exact—wearing size M)

Shorts: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size 6; similar)
Sandals: DSW (similar; exact in different colors—wearing size 8)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (similar, similar, similar, similar)


Elevated Casual Summer Outfit: green tank + white pants + gold metallic sandals + white earringscasual summer outfit green tank white wide leg pants

2. Colored Basic Tee + Neutral Pants
Next, take another one of your favorite colored basic tops and pair it with neutral pants. Again, you can use any colored top and pretty much any neutral colored pants, and you’ll create an outfit. For example, you can substitute the basic orange tee from the previous outfit for the green tank! Easy, right?

When you create a well-built wardrobe, it’s a whole lot easier to put together outfits–and the Summer Wardrobe & Outfit Guides walk you through the details of just how to do that.

Pull it together with accessories and metallic sandals!

Psst…metallic sandals are awesome to throw on when you have no clue what else to wear! Definitely a great option to have in your wardrobe.

Shop the Outfit:
Tank: Gap (exact—wearing size S; similar)
Pants: Gap (exact—wearing size S; similar)

3. Neutral Printed Top + Black Shorts
Take a printed top made of all neutral colors and pair it with black shorts. The example top in the guide is a white and tan floral print top. But, I’m using a brown-based top with a small black print instead. Like I’ve mentioned, the guides are structured so that you don’t have to use pieces that look like the pictures in the guide to have a well-built wardrobe!

This tank top is super lightweight, BTW! I have it in a couple of different prints and a solid color! Check them all out HERE in straight sizes. You can find them in plus sizes HERE, and petite sizes HERE. I wear size S.

These shorts are very soft and very lightweight. Super comfy with an elastic waistband, too! They’re available in regular and tall lengths, HERE.

Shop the Outfit:
Top: c/o Kohl’s (exact–wearing size S)
Shorts: Gap (exact–wearing size S; similar; black denim shorts–I wear size 6)
Sandals: Kohl’s (similar)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (similar)

4. Solid Top With Details + Colored Shorts or Pants
Pair colored bottoms with a solid, neutral top that has special details. This is an important type of piece to have in your wardrobe! The neutral color makes it versatile and helps it pair easily with colored bottoms while the special details ensure the outfit is visually interesting.

The example in the guide shows a button up camp shirt. I’m wearing one of my favorite purchases from last summer, this gauzy, textured top from Madewell. It works easily with colored bottoms, but it looks more interesting than a plain white tee thanks to its texture.

And of course, you can easily swap the pants for olive shorts instead!

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Madewell via Nordstrom (similar)
Pants: Old Navy (exact–wearing size 4; similar)
Sandals: Amazon (exact–wearing size 9)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (similar)

These combos are super easy to pull together, especially if you have a well-built wardrobe with the right “ingredients” (i.e. the right kinds of pieces). Try some of them this summer!
