    1. Pretty in pink
    Try a mini dress in a sweet pastel shade paired with neutral accessories. 

    2. All tied up
    Instead of buttoning a shirt all the way, grab the hems and form a knot—it’s more summer-appropriate that way!

    3. The cold shoulder 
    Of course you’re packing your off-shoulder top! Wear with chambray shorts for the least amount of effort possible.


    4. White hot
    Top a pair of cropped white trousers with a breezy, barely there camisole.

    5. Swept away
    A floor-grazing maxi dress doesn’t require mixing and matching. Save those brain cells for your first day back at work.

    6. Easy does it
    Steal your guy’s slightly oversized white tee, tuck under a bodycon skirt, and accessorize as you please.

    7. The long and short of it
    An embroidered long-sleeved blouse gives enough coverage, so flash those pins in your shortest shorts.

    8. Partners in crime
    A matching set, like this bow bandeau and midi skirt, makes for a super cute dinner-by-the-shore outfit.

    9. Gone on a limb
    Elongate your frame and exude a carefree vibe in a ‘70s-style halter jumpsuit—best worn with tousled hair and a sun-kissed glow.

    10. Peep show
    A lace-up blouse worn undone is the perfect way to show off your bikini top.
