I know this post might be a bit late in the game as everyone might have been done looking for “summer outfits” and started planning on purchasing their pre-fall pieces. But for me, as a person who’s living in a tropical country, summer never ends. Summer is the season for bright colors and lightweight materials – 2 elements that I love about this season. Despite the heat, I believe with the right pieces; you can still be chic and cute and stay cool all throughout summer. So, in case you’re looking for some summer outfit ideas, see below for 5 must-have items that will help you get through the heat of summer in style.
Summer Outfit 1: Off-the-shoulder Top
The off-the-shoulder trend is one of the hottest looks lately. Being able to show off the flattering neckline that men love makes it the go-to look for almost every girl this summer.
An off-the-shoulder striped top makes a great summer date look when teamed with a pair of embroidered jeans and pointed-toe heels. Put your hair up in a messy bun to show off more of your sexy neckline. I bet your man can’t take his eyes off you even for just one second!

Summer Outfit 2: Backless Piece
Summer is the right time to go backless. It’s a seamless way to make a statement without being too overwhelming. If you feel like showing off some skin, an exposed back is a more exciting choice compared to your cleavage. Wearing a backless dress with your favorite lacy bras would make you look ultra-feminine and subtly sexy at the same time. Besides, we have to let the breeze in wherever we can, don’t we?
Here I pair a backless lace dress with a pair of mid-heeled slippers for an extra elegant look. For this look, I’d put on a wide brimmed hat and have a walk on the beach, hopefully with a special someone.

Summer Outfit 3: Eyelet Dress
Eyelet trend is another way of letting your skin breathe in the summer. I love how it’s both laid back and ladylike at the same time. The versatility of an eyelet dress is endless; you can dress it down for a walk on the beach or dress it up for a night out. Either way, it’s a perfect summer item to add to your closet.
For this look, I pair a blue eyelet dress with a pair of nude heeled sandals. Together with some silver jewelry and a bling-bling clutch, this is a girly yet sophisticated look for a date night.
Summer Outfit 4: Maxi Dress
Hotter than ever, maxi dresses are the go-to piece in the summer. Not only do they look effortlessly chic, but they’re also very versatile and easy to go from day to night. Besides, the airy feel they bring make us love them even more.
Wear a maxi dress with a pair of flat sandals for a boho look. Put on a warm-toned makeup, and you’ll be the hottest girl this summer.

Summer Outfit 5: Sheer Top
Sheer is in. It’s the trend for all the adventurous girls out there who want to showcase the beauty of their body. But if you’re a bit intimidated by the idea of over-exposing your “things,” investing in sport-chic bras would help.
I go all out with the sheer theme here by pairing a sheer top with a pair of transparent sandals (love!!) and transparent framed glasses. Such a fun look for a shopping date with your BFFs!
