Summer is so close (or already here in some areas, like Texas). Here are 4 of my favorite summer tops and different ways to wear each of them.

It can be hard to dress beyond the basics in summer when it’s so hot.  But it’s possible to look cute and pulled together whether you’re headed to work, date night, or the park with your kids.

Here are four easy summer tops that are lightweight and perfect to wear in the summer.

If you want some summer top options, I shared a summer shopping guide all about tops RIGHT HERE.

This nice top works for the office and everyday

I’m all about finding tops that are super versatile. This Better Than Basic purple top is perfect for the office with some dressy pants, but you could also wear with shorts or jeans or tuck into a skirt.

Since the top is flowy and the pants are wide, I tucked the top in to create a nice shape. If it was untucked, I’d be shapeless!

Better than Basic tops are great with casual shorts

Yes, you can wear a basic tee with shorts, but a Better than Basic top is even…better.

It makes the outfit feel more purposeful and fun, creates a feminine feel, and makes the outfit feel way less boring and basic.

This lace sleeve top is pricey, but it’s one that you can wear tucked into skirts, with jeans, with shorts, and even with dress pants for work. It’s unique and so pretty.

Everyone needs a good white tee for summer!

Not ALL of your tops need to be Better Than Basic! A basic white tee is an absolute essential in my closet.

I just shared a few great white tees (that aren’t sheer) in THIS POST, if you need one.

You can wear a white tee a ton of different ways, but look how great it looks with a nice, casual skirt and some sneakers?! Perfect for running errands, going to the park, heading to brunch, or just hanging at home and wanting to look cute.

Summer date nights might need something a little warmer

Before you freak out about wearing jeans in the summer, I always want to wear jeans on date night even in Texas because everything is so over air conditioned. If we go to a restaurant, a movie theater, or anywhere else, it seems like I’m always freezing. If that’s not the case for you, you can adjust and swap the jeans for cropped pants, shorts, or a skirt.

This top is actually a little warmer as well since it’s a short sleeve sweater. It’s super soft and cozy and great for snuggling while still feeling super cute. It also comes in a bunch of gorgeous spring colors.
