For more inspo, you can see how four women of varying ages and body types styled this look here. And if the vibe is too adventurous, just pair the boxer-like shorts with a white tank!

10 easy everyday looks that are comfortable, fashion-conscious, and wallet-friendly:

1 // THIS STRIPED SET — VERY TRENDY VIBE…PAIR WITH LEATHER SLIDES (I OWN THESE, BUT GET THE LOOK FOR LESS WITH THESE) AND A GOOD MANICURE TO ELEVATE THE LOOK

2 // THIS SZ BLOCKPRINTS CAFTAN — I OWN SEVERAL AND THEY ARE THE SOFTEST, MOST BREATHABLE COTTON…GET AN EXTRA 20% OFF WITH CODE YOUROCK…WEAR WITH A TOP KNOT AND CLEAR FRAMED SUNNIES (<<I OWN THIS PAIR)

3 // THESE WHITE JEANS (IN MY CLOSET) ARE REALLY SO FLATTERING — PAIR WITH A NAVY AND WHITE STRIPED TEE AND WOVEN BUCKET BAG (I OWN THIS BUT GET THE LOOK FOR LESS WITH THIS) TO CHANNEL JANE BIRKIN

4 // FLORAL MAXI — I OWN THIS IN THE BLUE FLORAL AND WEAR IT CONSTANTLY IN THE WARMER MONTHS…THE MATERIAL IS SUPER SOFT AND THE CUT IS VERY FLATTERING! I WOULD PAIR WITH STRAPPY SANDALS LIKE THESE

5 // THIS CLASSIC SUNDRESS IN THE BLACK IN PARTICULAR IS ABOUT AS CHIC AS YOU’LL FIND FOR $30…PAIR WITH BIG BLACK SHADES AND BLACK BALLET FLATS (<<I’VE HEARD GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS $60 PAIR FROM COURTNEY GROW…SHE CUTS THE GOLD COIN OFF THE BACK FOR A TOTALLY BRANDLESS LOOK) FOR AN AUDREY MOMENT

6 // IN LOVE WITH THESE COASTAL GRANDMA-APPROVED WIDE LEG PANTS…I’D PAIR WITH A NAVY TEE

  1. So many great, chic ideas here! I have that exact SZB Jaipur dress (in the pink pineapple print) and it’s my favorite SZB dress by far. So breezy — I typically wear it in temps up to the low 80s. (Above that, I need to go sleeveless!)

    Have you ordered that striped set from Amazon? I have been shying away from buying clothes on Amazon but am a little tempted by this look … and you can’t beat $30 for a trend! Then again, I’m maybe even more swayed by the gauze set from Gap — I have a hard time resisting cotton gauze in the summer; it’s the best!

    1. Hi! I will be honest – I’ve ordered it and not yet figured out how quite to style it…might wear separately, i.e., shorts with white tank?? Will report back; I agree, the price is right for a big statement trend like that!

    2. Thank you for the info! I am curious to hear how you end up styling it. I love the look of sets but I think the cut has to be juuuust right, or else it looks more like PJs. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, though!

  2. Love almost every single one!
    I’m a tad confused regarding the $60 black flats. Your link shows a $60 pair with the gold coin. So are you saying try the Courtney Grow pair for the same price without the coin?
    Great finds. I want to order the two toned striped boxer set (blue/green) but I’m afraid they will look like pajamas too much. Which color did you order?

    1. Hi Cynthia! Hooray! I’m so glad you liked this post. Sorry about the confusion – Courtney buys that pair and then cuts off the gold coin using (I think) a seam ripper or scissors or something. Just to make it totally brand-less and chic!

      I got the pajama set in the pink. I’m worried the shorts will be too long on me but we shall see – worth a try, and if I can’t pull off for daytime, will wear at night!
