With increasing temperatures, longer days and humid weather associated with summer, having appropriate clothing for the special season is, certainly, quite important! While there are millions of patterns and styles of clothes, these ten in particular can pair well with several different outfits to create cute and fashionable, yet also comfortable, summer outfits.

From accessories, such as sunglasses and necklaces, to warm weather apparel like skirts and tank tops — the styling options are endless. I would highly recommend purchasing one of EACH of these clothing pieces for the summer months.

Strapless tops help prevent rubbing or sweating at the shoulders while also pairing well with a cute skirt, patterned pants or denim shorts! While some people may find them frustrating to wear, they allow for maximum air flow around your hair and cause less friction.

These shorts allow for an eye popping display of color or pattern! These kinds of shorts pair well with a solid colored tank top and create a cute combination of vibrance.

Many patterns, colors and textures can be on a single sundress! Pair stripes with a solid chunky belt or sandals. Solid colors complement textured shoes, and patterns work well with a solid tote bag to create cute, comfortable and stylish summer outfits.

Denim Skirt

Denim skirts pair well with many different tops, both flowy and tight! Denim skirts look especially nice against pink, ruby or rose-colored tops, but you can mix and match as you please!

Round Sunglasses

Round sunglasses work perfectly with nearly any outfit. Additionally, they can be used to block the sunlight or just appear cute on the top of your head — whichever pleases you!

Stacking multiple necklaces at different heights on your neck can create a beautiful, eye drawing display. These pieces of jewelry can add extra flare to an outfit — depending upon how many you wear!

Thin Strap Tank Top

Thin strap tank tops are quite similar to strapless tube tops in that they prevent sweating or rubbing on your shoulders. They pair well with nearly any bottoms, such as the patterned shorts mentioned previously!

Loose Patterned Skirts

Claw clips pull hair away from the face in a stylish, yet comfortable, manner. Ultimately, these pieces prevent hair from sticking to your shoulders, while also providing a cuter way to hold back your hair.

Have fun styling up your attire this summer! I hope this guide gave you some outfit inspiration for the whole season.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
