How to Turn Effortless Outfits Into Exciting Style

As the spring breeze develops into summer heat and we trade our time at school for long days by the beach, the last thing a Fashionista/o may want to think about is putting together a complex outfit. Luckily, this summer, simplicity is key. However, looking effortless does not mean you have to risk making your outfit exciting, trendy, and fun!

The perfect effortless summer outfit for me means sticking to basic items that I can rely on. For this outfit, I decided to reach for my favorite boyfriend jeans from Madewell. These jeans are great for the summer because they match almost everything in my wardrobe. They also have tons of stylish distressing which will help you keep cool. While I opted for a super basic pair of jeans on the bottom, I decided to wear a twist on the basic white top for a shirt. I revamped this classic style by reaching for one with a fun graphic print from Zara to add some interest to my simple outfit.

I stuck to simple Birkenstock sandals for shoes (because comfort is key in the summer, right?). However, I decided to add a little more of my personal style through the accessories. I completed my look with a choker necklace from Madewell and a pair of thrifted vintage shades.

Dressing for the summer should by no means be complicated. It’s time to stop shopping for elaborate items which might go out of style by the fall. Instead, hang onto timeless pieces which will last you a lifetime and will save you some time when putting an outfit together. Dress the outfit up and add some character through accessories and details which showcase your personal style. You’ll be summer-ready in no time!
