Our Favorite End of Summer Trendy Outfits

A Carefree Lightweight Kimono

We love making the most of every day (and every night) during the summer. As much as we can’t get enough of our teeny bikinis and cutoff denim shorts, the cooler evening weather is no reason to stop enjoying the great outdoors in style!

Perfect for using as a coverup as you head from the boardwalk to the beach or to throw over a tank sundress, a lightweight, cute kimono is a must-have for trendy summer outfits toward the end of the season. As the days start to get a little shorter and fall creeps a little closer, layering becomes essential.

These versatile pieces look gorgeous and flowy over everything from casual tanks and shorts to poolside bathing suits. Keep things casual with subtle patterns or frayed detail and have fun with the color scheme of your choice. For a bit of glam, add a casual long pendant fashion necklace to complete any of your cute summer looks!

Cute Cowry Shell Accents

Cowry shells are among our favorite pieces to rock during the summertime, thanks to their beachy vibes, easygoing appearance, and overall unique shape!

We love that cowry shell necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are versatile enough to wear with your most casual ensembles, as well as your more dolled up trendy summer outfits. Thanks to their white color, these cowry shell pieces look amazing paired with your summer tan and serve as the ideal neutral counterpart to your other more colorful summer accessories and cute summer looks!

Right now, we are all about stacking these cowry shell bracelets and mixing and matching different bead colors amongst the shells for unique looks that can be customized to your sense of style. They also look great with colorful bead hoop earrings as the perfect finishing touch to a simple maxi dress and beach-tousled hair.

Boho Chic Straw Bags

We never left the house this summer without our go-to straw bags and as the season is winding down, we still can’t get enough of pairing our favorite trendy summer outfits with these equally stylish and versatile handbags! From slouchy totes to more structured crossbodies, straw designs have been on everyone’s mind this season. We adore the unique texture and look of these pieces, which can be dressed up with tassels and colorful accents for a bold look or kept simple and chic.

Ideal for brunch with the girls or throwing over your shoulder for an impromptu bike ride to the beach, straw bags never look out of place, and we certainly don’t see them going out of style anytime soon. Creating cute summer looks that feel effortless and bohemian chic is super simple when you top things off with a trendy straw bag. We also love mixing things up by opting for a black straw handbag for our nighttime looks and pairing it with classic gold accessories and a flowy dress for the ultimate night out ensemble.

Whimsical Shades

The only shade we’ll be throwing for the rest of the summer is at the beach, thanks to our fun Izipizi sunglasses! Finding shades that both protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and offer a unique fashion statement can be a challenge, but luckily, we’ve tracked down some great pairs. We’re all about keeping things simple with our trendy summer outfits, so find stocking up on some affordable and cute sunglasses is a great way to freshen up your summer wardrobe.

Squinting isn’t the cutest look for those Instagram snaps you’ll be taking beachside, so make sure your sunnies capture your vibe and personality. We’re loving a pair that has retro aviator roots but makes things modern with tinted ombre lenses. Or show off your fun-loving personality with multi-colored frames that will keep your eyes protected all-day-long and complement your cute summer looks flawlessly.

Stay Hydrated, Fashionably

Bikini? Check. Sunscreen? Check. You may have packing for a day at the shore or a getaway to the lake down to a science, but something we’re definitely guilty of forgetting is that good old H2O! We know we’ll look amazing in our trendy summer outfits, but nothing can ruin a day at the beach like forgetting to stay hydrated. Suddenly, our skin feels drier and body is parched, making it all but impossible to enjoy everything these last sunny days have to offer.

Water bottles Pastel colored Pastel colored collapsible water bottles

If you want to be kind to the environment and avoid stocking up on single-use plastic bottles, we recommend choosing a chic and functional collapsible water bottle that won’t take up tons of room in your bag but will save you time and money once you’re out and about. The Que Collapsible Water Bottle shrinks down to just a fraction of its full size when empty, so you won’t have to worry about carrying a bulky bottle on the go and ruining the look of your cute summer looks!

Trust us, your skin will thank you!
