Even if you’re not headed to the beach, I have some chic summer outfits that are easy to throw on and look super stylish no matter where you’re going! As women over 40, we want outfits that are simple to put together, sophisticated but not frumpy, and chic! Below you’ll find eight outfit ideas! Remember that you don’t have to buy anything new to put these outfits together…shop your closet to see what you have!
#1 | Cover Up Dress
If you ARE headed to the beach and want a chic outfit, this dress is perfect! This is the chicest beach cover up! It’s one of those effortless pieces that you can wear from the beach to lunch and feel appropriate. And it has pockets! Instead of wearing a swimsuit under it, I wore this sexy lace bralette. I wore it with some block heel sandals but you can wear them with whatever your favorite sandals are! This dress is sold out in the striped version but still available in gray!
#2 | White Shorts
This outfit is perfect for a summer dinner! In the pictures above, I’m wearing a pink tee, white shorts, and white mules. Everything is sold out but I linked similar options! I love the combination of white and pink and think this outfit is so feminine!
#3 | White Jeans & Statement Top
If you don’t like white shorts or want to dress up a little more…try white jeans! I have on a pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans that have a cool split hem. I paired them with a gorgeous Amanda Uprichard top I’ve featured in this post. It’s such a gorgeous statement top, I bought it in two colors!
#4 | White Button-Down & Denim Shorts
This is such an easy and chic outfit for women over 40! And it’s easy! I’m wearing my favorite denim shorts with my favorite lightweight button-down by Rails. You can wear it tucked in or tied up like I did! I’m wearing sneakers but you could also wear sandals! These sneakers are by Golden Goose and I reviewed if they’re worth it or not in this post.
#5 | Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is an easy way to look super chic and stay cool during the summer! The two maxi dresses above are by Free People and really make a statement. They’re both gorgeous colors for summer and can be worn as coverups too! The white dress is sold out but I linked it in another color. The pink dress has a deep v neckline so I wear a cami or bralette underneath!
#6 | Cami & Maxi Skirt
A love a maxi skirt during the summer. I feel so sophisticated and fancy when I wear one! This skirt is sold out but there are tons of maxi skirt options out there! Choose one that fits your personal style and pair it with a simple cami for a really gorgeous summer look!
#7 | White Denim & Tee
This look is super casual and a style uniform for many of us during the summer! Throw on some pretty white denim shorts or a skirt and a tee and you’re ready to go! I threw on a striped button-down over the tee for the added chicness of a third layer!
