Summer is not for thinking about clothes—it is for wearing as little clothes as possible while you do fun activities outside. Therefore, here are five outfit combinations that make dressing an effortless exercise that's still more exciting than just a different sundress every day (because you're going to run out at some point unless you are sewing your own every night).
We're big proponents of the Big-Ass Earring around these parts. A pair of those plus some shoes so comfortable they barely count as footwear, and you're good 2 go wherever, almost whenever.
A banker-stripe shirt might seem like the last thing you'd want to wear in 80-degree weather, but in a lightweight fabric, it's as breezy as they come. It also helps that here, you'll be unbuttoning it only to the waistband of the skirt and shoving the tails to the sides for an ab triangle (scandalous). That's a lot of fabric around the torso, so we won't add more with a bag strap—instead, a hand-held, flat-folding wooden tote does the trick.
My personal favorite: Take your sun-dried swimsuit, add the skirt companion to the most magical top ever made in the history of fashion, and an open shirt for *propriety* (snickers). Oh, and fancy earrings never hurt anybody.
It doesn't get much easier than a matching set. Slip on some graphic shades (a bit cooler than those goggle-like ones from last year) and tie a scarf around your head for interest.
