18 Summer-Ready Outfits We Love for All Kinds of Weather


Ready for summer? These outfits will help you get in the warm-weather mindset. 

I don’t know about you, but all I can think about is summer. If you too are dreaming of afternoons in beer gardens and summer parties with friends, then you might already be searching for the perfect summer outfits ahead of time. I bought a pair of sandals and a summer cotton dress within hours of the sun shining last week and have been looking for outfit ideas ever since.

Sometimes, summer outfits need to be straightforward and simple to assemble, with just the flourish of a key accessory or subtle injection of a new styling move, and sometimes—because the UK’s climate is so unpredictable—the layering and construction will be more demanding. We’ve supplied the more advanced levels, of course. Remember if the sandals don’t work due to rain, plenty of the below outfits work with boots.

So without further ado, let us introduce you to the summer outfit ideas we’re dreaming of for 2022, provided by some standout looks and supported by the shopping pieces you need to see.

Shirt dresses never fail to look sleek. 

Oval sunglasses are trending for 2022. 

How fun is this block-colour bag? 

These were a huge hit last year, so I’m expecting them to be just as popular this time around. 

Love the tailored look? Why not consider the blazer and trousers to match? 

I hear amazing things about & Other Stories denim. 

This looks so much more expensive than it actually is. 

Cut-outs and in one of 2022’s biggest colour trends? This midi has a lot going for it. 

No outfit is complete without some gold jewellery. 

A playful take on classic Breton stripes. 

Nothing says “summer” quite like white jeans. 

The straps are thin, but their flat weave looks more comfortable than other options I’ve seen. 

Mango has some of the best warm-weather cover-ups out there. 

Use this as a layering piece on chillier summer days. 

I promise this is just as comfy to wear as your joggers or leggings. 

A little black dress is the ultimate wardrobe staple. 

Shoes to see you through every summer occasion, from weddings to al fresco dining. 

The silhouette of this dress is so beautiful. 

The slingback strap will provide your foot with additional support. 

I love the squared-off neckline on this top. 

Lightweight and wide-leg? These are trousers you’ll be able to wear even when temperatures reach their peak. 

This is calling out to be worn with Mary Jane flats. 

Summer in a bag. 

Our editors really rate Arket tees. 

That’s right—’90s-style denim skirts are back. 

As are ’90s-style bucket hats. 

The linen co-ord every influencer owns (or wants to own).

Look for minimalist bra tops to wear under oversized shirting for a look that’s inspired by the 2022 runways. 

Bandana tops are hard to come by, but Hollister has lots of styles to choose from. 

The ’70s hold a major influence over the spring/summer 2022 denim trends—cue high-rise flares with cute patch pockets. 

Straw hats remain a fashion-person favourite. 

Bowling shirts? They’re big news right now. 

Slip skirts always look high-end. Just add a vest top and a blazer, and you have the perfect summer after-dark ensemble. 

Who said you can’t wear black during the summer months?

The sole on these shoes will make them more comfortable to walk in compared to the flimsier styles on the market. 

Sea put patchwork back on the style agenda this year. 

Beach or bar, this dress will be the first thing you reach for. 

An update on the wardrobe staple. 

These jeans look authentically distressed. 

This dress comes in a handful of versatile and chic colourways.

Clogs in lighter leather tones are ideal for summer. 

Tie-front tops look great paired with wide-leg trousers.

As well as denim Bermuda shorts, of course! This Monki pair has just been restocked for summer, too.
