Folks! There’s a fine balance between giving specific and interesting outfit tips or keeping it more open and relatable. I try to do the latter as much as possible, but sometimes I do like to get nerdy and all specific. Here are five outfit ideas summer 2018 that’s been on my mind lately:

Outfit Ideas Summer 2018
I love to work the sheer fabrics as they’re fun with the transparent twist, which requires some more thoughtful styling. I also think sheer fabrics are a sign of the days getting warmer, which is why I associate them with spring/summer. Going for a transparent blouse is a simple way of embracing the look, layer it with a same colored top under or one close to your skin tone. Contrast the outfit with heavier texture such as (faux) leather or some edgy denim. It’s all about balance folks!
One of the best things with summer is the ability to work the jumpsuits without having to layer them. No tight tops or tights underneath, but just the jumpsuit and you (or something). That’s why they’re also a great go-to piece as they require little styling and you literally have an outfit with only one clothing piece. I think it’s great to choose a colorful jumpsuit or one in print as it’s a simple way of wearing something colorful/in print, without having to fuss with the styling.
Denim Jacket & Floral Dress
I talked about this outfit combination on Wednesday, but it’s too cute not to mention again! If you need a jacket to your floral dress, a denim jacket is a favorable alternative for summer. Same goes if you need something preppy to your denim jacket, which the floral dress undoubtedly will add! The denim jacket, in its blue color, is quite neutral so you don’t have to think too much about the styling either!
Pleated Midi Skirt
The midi length was subject for the trend alert post yesterday and I’d like to stress it’s geniusness for summer. The pleated midi skirt is both elegant yet casual which is a great combination when you need something light for summer, but still something that is in line with a dress code. Perfect for a fancy garden party, afternoon tea or when visiting a museum and you don’t want to show up in shorts and a crop top (or I dunno). Go for the high-waisted style and tuck your top in – an easy way to create a chic silhouette and thereby add some life to the outfit.
I’ve talked a lot about monochromatic white and red the past months but my favorite for summer is monochromatic pastel. Just one piece of the sweetness of pastel might be enough for summer, but going for the monochromatic style is a must if you want to take it a level higher. Take your favorite shade of the pastels (lilac is very popular atm), and go for it top to toe. You can also be lazy enough and go for the monochromatic style with a jumpsuit and the work is already done for you!

Jumpsuits are so in this year!! It’s been a while since I’ve worn one but I’m on a lookout for a new one. Love these fun outfit ideas for summer!
Oh that’s lovely! They’re so comfy and casual! Xx
Yes to jumpsuits! I love one and done outfits come summer when it’s just way too hot for contemplating all the different elements of a look. I have a ton of maxi dresses from when I was pregnant that I purchased in my usual size, so I can still wear them this time around. I don’t have many jumpsuits, so I’ve begun adding to create a bit of a collection. I’m also loving sheer tops, especially lace ones. I had my eye on one that looked a lot like the one in the look you’ve shared here, but it sold out in my size 🙁 Hoping to find another soon. Thanks for sharing these perfect ideas with us, beautiful, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

Oh yes, maxi dresses are also genius for summer! Great idea to get them in your regular size, that’s a great styling tips for any pregnant lady out there. Hope you’ll find the sheer top in your style soon love! Xx

Generally pastels are great. I recently performed a “which season are you” test in beauty and I found out I’m neutral summer and pastel colors fit me very well, so I like the trend very much. I also like sheer fabrics – I’ve seen a video recently during which one youtuber was cooking something and she wore sheer golden shirt and she looked fabulous. I am not a fan of denim jackets – seem so stiff to me, I don’t know, but floral dresses are great!
Oh that sounds like a fun test! Sheer fabrics are lovely and a golden shirt sounds like a great version of the style! Xx
Jumpsuits and playsuits are what I have been living in so I am all for those!
Raindrops of Sapphire
Oh same here! They’re just genius for summer! Xx
Monochrome pastel is such a fun idea. It’s not for me personally, but I enjoy seeing it on Instagram!
I love that you can play around with so many different shades of it, I’m sure there’s a color for you too! Try the closest one to a bright color you enjoy! Xx
Monochromatic pastel is soooo hot rn! Love wearing that and I’m also a huge fan of floral dresses with denim jackets. Have a lovely Friday. xx
I love monochromatic pastel, it’s so sweet and sophisticated for summer indeed! Xx
My favorite outfit is the one with the pleated midi skirt and the heart shaped sunglasses. You look absolutely stunning!
Not me in the picture, but yes, the outfit is really cute! Xx
