This year, summer seems to be taking its time to settle in, but that’s just fine with me. As a matter of fact, I think it is just perfect for re-inventing our summer wardrobe and doing some fine tuning without feeling the heat! Don’t you agree? Thus, I collected plenty of images with some stylish summer outfits for inspiration that I will share with you today.

All these summer outfits have something in common. They are quite casual with a very easy going vibe to them. Moreover, their colors are for the most part very deep earthly colors: rusty and orange hues. Hence, they have a much more intense organic vibe to them. Pair them with bold yellows, defining ink stains and lots of beige tones and you’ll get the most elegant and chic looking outfits with that sought after timeless quality to them.

Love this combo of a white shirt with a rusty hue wide leg pants, sandals and a straw bag. Image by Next.

A blue solid color belt works perfectly for that animal print maxi dress. The other dress is also interesting, not because of its animal print in turquoise and orange hues but because of its halter neck. Image by Dorothy Perkins.

A big leaf print pattern exudes a tropical vibe. In this case, the orange backdrop against the print on this jumpsuit gives it a real up-to-date feel. Image by Dorothy Perkins.

I would love to wear an outfit like this: a white blazer over a pale yellow pleated maxi dress and white sneakers. Image by Oasis.

I like both outfits: the maxi leopard pleat skirt with the rusty hue top and spaghetti straps as well as the white short wrap dress. Both have been paired with heel sandals. Image by Dorothy Perkins.

I bet you’re thinking now that this will be one orange summer! Definitely! Deep orange hues are ruling. White, khaki and denim though will help balance things out. (Thank goodness, because I’m not much of an orange fan). Having said that though stripes, bold animal or geometric patterns and spots are also making everything so much more interesting. But don’t forget to throw in some solid colors in the mix for depth, contrast and ultimately greater impact.

Now, a great way to go about it making patterns work for you is through accessories (belts, bags, scarves e.t.c.). Also, throwing in a few gold accessories will certainly go a long way in refining and giving that put together feel to the outfits. So get those earring hoops and bracelet cuffs out in the open. 😉

Hope I got you feeling inspired…

Have a good day,
