1. Beat The Heat In Light Colors
For the gal who loves a good monochrome ensemble, skip head-to-toe black or even brighter shades for white and light beige. Lighter colors reflect light (while darker colors absorb it), meaning they’re much better at keeping you cool even on the hottest days of the year.
2. Add One Super-vibrant Pop
4. Dress Up A Boilersuit With Sleek Accessories
Turns out, these one-piece wonders are appropriate for way more than painting a house. Pair yours with a silk scarf, ladylike handbag and some ’70s sunnies to avoid looking like you’re on your way to work at the carwash.
5. Combine Beachy Button-ups With Sporty Bike Shorts
We weren’t entirely on board at first either, but the bike shorts craze won’t be dying down any time soon so you may want to consider embracing the trend once and for all. The simplest way to wear them? With easy sneakers and a loose button-down shirt in a fun, vibrant print.
6. Swap Your Jacket For A Lightweight Duster
This is how you deal with those weird in-between days before true summer hits. Thanks for the inspo, Coterie member Grace Atwood!

7. Dress Up A Pair Of Track Pants
Swap your go-to sweats for something a little more warm-weather friendly, like silky track pants, instead. Give them a style boost by tucking in a form-fitting tank top, slipping into some sleek white sneakers or strappy sandals and piling on all the dainty gold jewelry.

8. Opt For Longer-length Shorts Over Cut-offs
Bermudas and other short styles with longer inseams are reigning supreme this summer (hallelujah!), so leave the Daisy Duke cut-offs for vacation. We've found styles that fit a little looser to be more universally flattering than those that are skin tight.
9. Go Big (on Color And Style)
This year’s version of the comfy tent dress is a bit more tailored with tiers of fabric and strategic stitching throughout. And while you can never go wrong with a gorgeous floral print, we really love the impact a bright, solid block of color can make.
10. Isolate A Bold Print
11. Offset Chunky Sandals With A Body-skimming Midi
Thick-soled sandals with lots of straps, aka dad sandals, are majorly trending this summer. Our favorite way to wear them is with a sleek midi dress and minimalist jewelry, a la Coterie member Monroe Steele, for a balanced look that proves opposites really do attract.
12. Try A Funky Color Combo
Who would have thought creamsicle orange and tropical turquoise could look so good together? Have some fun mixing and matching solid hues in your wardrobe to find what other unexpectedly fabulous color combos you can make.
13. Sport A Matching Button-up And Shorts
This casual combo was everywhere last summer and we expect the trend to make a full return as temperatures continue to rise. To avoid looking like you’re wearing someone else’s boxers and button-up, be sure to add stand out accessories, like a woven leather handbag or a colorful headband, and opt for sleek sandals over sporty sneakers.
14. Go Back To Basics
A plain white tank and jeans can look incredibly chic if you know how to choose the right pieces. Pick a top in a thicker material, rather than wrinkly linen or ribbed cotton, and tuck it into jeans that eschew distressing and whiskering for a clean solid wash. Finish with a classic black or leather belt to cinch your waist and voilà! Easy, grown-up and ready for anything your weekend has in store.
15. Swap Your Jeans For Cargo Pants
Yes, the dad-approved style is in for summer 2022, but there are absolutely some tricks to making them look fashionable rather than frumpy. Opt for a pair with some extra detailing, like contrasting pockets, lace trim down the sides or a paperbag waist, to give them a more feminine flare. We also suggest wearing them with a short-sleeve blouse or sexy high-neck bodysuit instead of a plain T-shirt.
16. Keep Cool In A Maxi Tent Dress
Short tent dresses run the risk of blowing up in the wind (or making you look like a child’s babydoll), but longer silhouettes will keep you just as cool and comfortable and eliminate any chance of an incidental flashing. Look for sleeveless styles or those with loose sleeves to really monopolize on breathability.
17. Style A Mini To Feel All Grown Up
Add a crisp button-down shirt, a sleek leather bag and opt for straight silhouettes over anything with pleats. And that’s how you avoid schoolgirl comparisons like a total pro.
18. Celebrate Father’s Day By Dressing Like Dad
With a chic fashion twist, of course. The Hawaiian shirt and khaki pants are all Pops, but the strappy stilettos, glitzy bangles and glamorous sunglasses help keep you from looking like his actual twin.
19. Consider An All-black Ensemble
Since elementary school we’ve known that white reflects light and black absorbs it, making white and lighter shades a better option for keeping cool in the heat. But that doesn’t mean head-to-toe black is entirely off the table. The key is to choose breathable, lightweight fabrics—linen, hemp and silk are best—and breezy silhouettes like oversize button-ups, mini or midi skirts or loose shorts.
20. Weave A Bandana Through Your Braid
Braids are excellent for taming your strands on hot, humid afternoons, and this is an incredibly easy way to take the classic hairstyle to the next level. There are multiple ways to make this work, but the simplest is to pull your hair back into a low ponytail and knot one end of your bandana to the back of your hair tie. Then braid your hair like normal, using the bandana as one of the three strands. Then you can either tie off your braid with any remaining fabric or use just a hair tie. Voilà!
21. Go Backless
Skip the pretty lace bralette in favor of a totally backless look. The trick is all in choosing the right backless bra for your cup size.
22. Wear 2022’s Version Of A 3-piece Suit
We never could’ve predicted it, but sharp tailoring is already one of the year’s top trends. And while there are plenty of ways to rock a power suit, our favorite might just be this new version of a three-piece suit, which swaps a vest for a chic matching bra top.
23. Swap Your Denim Jacket For A Light Blazer
Rather than reach for your tried-and-true denim trucker (again), shake things up with a posh lightweight blazer instead. It will add some polish to even the most casual crop top and shorts, and looks far more modern and fresh. Just be sure to choose lighter hues or summery florals over black or plaid to keep things seasonally appropriate.
24. Tie Your Shirt Instead Of Tucking It
Besides eliminating the need to continue retucking your shirt throughout the day, this styling trick also allows you to show a sliver of skin at the waist, making long sleeves and pants feel more summery.
25. Channel Your Inner Cruella De Vil
Spring and summer tend to invoke images of brightly colored gardens and vibrant printed sundresses, but that doesn’t mean you’re required to go all in on rainbow hues. Stark black and white can still look seasonally appropriate so long as you choose pieces in summer silhouettes, like a flowy midi skirt or sleeveless bodysuit.
26. Play Around With Texture
Wearing one color, or one color family, from head-to-toe is an easy way to look put together with little effort. But if you mix in a few pieces with interesting textures—like an open-lace top, crochet weave or even feathers or sequins—it adds depth and interest to make your outfit look even more luxe.
27. Have Your Favorite Swimsuit Pull Double Duty
Who says you can’t wear your swimsuit all day? Toss on a pair of tailored trousers and strappy ‘90s-esque sandals, like Coterie member Tyla-Lauren Gilmore did here, for instant polish.
28. Pair Black With Navy
We know, the idea of wearing one dark hue in the middle of June feels a little off, but two? Trust us, this combination is supremely chic and a pop of black, whether it be in the form of some Birkenstocks or a patterned clutch, can make your go-to blue pieces feel super fresh.
29. Try A New Style Of Scarf Top
The classic Y2K scarf top, knotted at the back with a triangle point hem, is back in full swing, but we love this more unexpected twist on the trend. TikTok is chock-full of easy-to-follow tutorials, so have some fun playing around with different styles. Finish your ensemble with some high-waist trousers or a silk slip skirt and some shoulder-grazing earrings.
30. When In Doubt, Keep It Simple
A simple white frock is the ultimate summer wardrobe staple and goes with any and all accessories, whether you prefer classic beige sandals and a straw tote or vibrant platforms and a rainbow shoulder bag.
