Jumpsuit. Oh, yeah. Your best wear-and-go summer staple. Choose yours in cotton or silk, steer clear of jersey. You can easily throw over a kimono or a bolero for a new look. A tote and strap sandals are perfect to complete your cozy getaway attire.

When you´re vacationing to somewhere warm and humid such as Thailand, forget jeans and denim. Always, and again I repeat, always pack some airy, lightweight dresses for your comfort. Just wear it with a super cute thong sandal and a tote bag and you´re ready to conquer the place you´re visiting.
3. Casual summer outfit ideas: A Tropical Print Romper
Romper. It took me long to find the perfect romper for me. I wanted it bright and printed, although I initially preferred it to have sleeves because I didn´t want to show too much skin. But when I saw my perfect romper, very similar to this tropical print romper in the photos, I fell in love. So I wore over it a complementary, printed long bolero cardigan.
4. A Simple Solid-Colored Scoop Neck Dress
When it comes to curating casual summer outfit ideas, I like to include a simple solid dress because it lets me carry my most attractive printed bags and highlight my most trendy sandals. A simple solid dress is like a blank page ready to get painted on.
5. Casual summer outfit ideas: A Denim Romper
I really like this idea, it´s about creating denim on denim look without actually wearing denim. As i´ve mentioned above, denim is just too warm for summer, so I will rather steal this style idea.
6. Casual summer outfit ideas: Jersey Cold Shoulder Romper
Keep it low-key in black but bring the drama on through your off-shoulders. I recommend wearing this in the evening, when you´re hanging out in bars and restaurants.
7. Throw On-And-Go Shirt + Relaxed Shorts
Throw on cozy shirts are my thing. I always have them in my vacay outfits. I love wearing them with relaxed shorts. For my shoes, I go for sandals, smoking slippers or oxfords.
8. Flirty Crop Lace Top + Chambray Shorts
We usually dig for casual summer outfit ideas when styling weekend outfits. We like it laid-back and comfy. Although there are some of us who like to keep things preppy even for a casual weekend stroll, for most of us we prefer comfort over style. But that´s not to say that we can´t easily add a hint of style to our casual summer outfit. One way to do that is to wear a lace top.
So, here´s the tip. Whether it´s to toughen up a sleeveless lace top with a dark denim skirt or lighten it up with some chambray shorts, teaming a lace with denim is a gorgeous style idea to steal. Worn with a fedora hat and some strappy flat sandals, you´ll look chic and effortless while enjoying comfort.
9. Freddy Lace Top + Comfy Shorts
There are some comfy shorts that also look dressy, if you wear them with a nice lace top featuring embroidery and/or pleats, your laidback outfit still speaks elegance and class. Emphasize the elegance with some statement accessories such as black sunglasses and black flat sandals, but don´t forget to be girly with a brim hat.
10. White Crochet Trim Tank + White Shorts
I love the versatility of shorts. They look dressy with heels and they quickly look casual smart with ballerinas or flat boots.
White on white is my favorite so I´m most likely to navigate towards this combination on a humid summer day. Teaming a white lace top with white shorts will always make you look fresh and clean no matter how sweaty you go.
11. Crop Lace Top + White Culottes
Here´s a super cute laidback outfit for a summer weekend featuring a light blue crop lace top teamed with white culottes.
If I´m wearing this to a meet-up with my girlfriends in Bangkok, I´ll wear it with high heels. The pavement in the street and the floors of shopping malls are mostly smooth and flat so rocking high heels isn´t stressful. But if I´m wearing it here in Germany, with all the cobblestones, I´ll finish it with a pair of flats.
12. Black Floral High Low Skirt Black t-Shirt
I´ve been wanting to add some floral pieces to my summer wardrobe, feminine and functional pieces. The next five looks in this list feature beautiful florals that can be easily dressed up or down.
This high low skirt in black floral is functional. I can wear it with a black t-shirt and some kitten heels for a date with my husband. I can also swap the heels for lace-up boots if I´m to wear this look casual, perfect for running errands.
To wear it to church I will team up this skirt with a black collared top that is more fitted to the body and the shoes will be strapped black stilettos.
Furthermore, I will transition the look for fall by adding a white or yellow jacket and some opaque black tights. In winter, the skirt will look really sexy with slender knee-length leather boots in black.
13. Black Patchwork Floral Bias Skirt
This high waist, floral midi skirt has a sexy slit in front. Worn with trainers or heels, it will look flattering on tall women. But for a petite woman like me, I will only look good in it if I wear it with stiletto heels. Otherwise, flats and this skirt will make me look frumpy.
Therefore, although the skirt is a stylish and practical choice for a taller woman, it´s not as practical for me.
14. Casual summer outfit ideas: Floral Frill Hem Shirt Dress
I love, love this floral print. But I´ve already bought a dress with similar style and the same silhouette. So I know from experience that this cut will not look falttering on me if worn as is. The dress will overwhelm my slim and petite built. The work-around is to cinch the waist with a belt.
I will use a black or gold belt with thick band to cinch my waist. But ff you´re curvey and you´d want to create a waist with this dress, go for a slim belt.
However, if you prefer to let the print do the talking without worrying about creating shape, and you rather enjoy the comfort of this printed dress`shirt silhouette, then this frock will be perfect.
15. Daisy Print Angel Sleeve Midi Dress
There are four things that I love about this floral print dress – its angel wings, open back, high front slits, and of course, its gorgeous feminine print.
Needless to say, this dress is made for heels. And its definitely perfect when planning for casual summer outfit ideas (can´t be transitioned for colder seasons).
But if you do decide to wear it casually, opt for white trainers or flats.
16. Bold Floral Wrap Dress
This floral print has a body and edgy elements to it. I actually think it´s more suited for winter than summer, or for night than day. It´s probably the black in the print that makes me think this way.
Nonetheless, this is a real stunner. With its bold look and wrap dress style, it´s both stylish and flattering to most body types.
17. A Floral Halter Dress with Espadrille
Show off those toned shoulders and arms this summer in this super cute halter dress featuring a cutaway neckline and bright floral print. When I first saw it, I was quickly smitten.
