Summer Outfits Without Shorts

Hot weather is upon us and I’ve had some requests for easy and cute summer outfits without shorts, if you’re not a shorts person, or you can add some variety to your summer looks.

 

I’ve had a lot of questions about summer outfits without shorts, so here are 4 looks I put together that will keep you cool and are layer-free. If you want to add some variety to the typical shorts and a t-shirt outfit, try some of these out!

 

Summer Outfits Without Shorts 

 

COMFY AND EASY SUMMER DRESS

A dress is a great alternative to shorts on a hot summer day. A knee length one like this helps keep you covered if you’re chasing kids, and is so comfortable. It’s also machine washable so if you get messy during your summer days, you’ll be able to clean it up easily. I’m in a size XS and it’s true to size!

TRY A SKORT WITH A TEE

A skort is another great alternative to a pair of shorts! These have biker shorts underneath so they keep you covered while you’re running around. This skirt in particular is moisture wicking and super lightweight and comfortable, and comes in a few different colors, so it’s a great summer option. It has pockets on the sides AND has pockets underneath on the biker shorts, so it’s great for playing pickleball and tennis, but also for everyday holding your phone or other things!

LIGHTWEIGHT CROPPED WIDE LEG PANTS

These pants are a some of my all time favorite — these are the linen version and they’re super lightweight and very comfortable. If you’re not a shorts wearer, these are a great alternative and will keep you covered and comfortable all summer long. They come in tons of colors, and also come in Anthropologie’s “magic fabric,” which is a soft, lightweight, stretchy fabric. I have these ones in olive green and I wear them all the time in the summer.

TRY A LONG TIERED MAXI SKIRT

A long skirt is another great alternative to wearing shorts in the summer. This skirt keeps going in and out of stock (so watch for a restock), and looks so gorgeous with a bodysuit or tee or tank and a cute pair of sandals.

    I love the combinations that it presents to us, especially the mixture of tones, especially when you combine the skirts
