Fashion People Will Basically Live in These 9 Outfits This July

Assembling chic outfits for the month ahead just got easier. 

There’s no denying that temperatures have been slow to climb this season, but we’re not going to let a little thing like the British weather get us down. In fact, we’re embracing summer with open (puff-sleeved) arms—particularly where our wardrobes are concerned. But what exactly are we supposed to wear in July when it’s glorious sunshine one minute then grey skies the next?

After trawling through the Instagram accounts of our favourite influencers, we managed to come up with eight looks that are ideal for any sort of weather July might throw at us. From the ultimate cool-girl cover-up for chilly evenings to the It dress that’ll serve you well in the park and at the bar, there are plenty of ideas you’ll want to copy immediately. Consider the following your July style lookbook.

Style Notes: In the UK, you need to be prepared for the weather to turn at any moment, which is why we love the practicality of Claire Most’s outfit here. There’s a cardigan option for a sudden drop in temperature but a crop top underneath for when the sun decides to shine. 

A cute cardigan will become your go-to summer layer. 

Never before has the tank top been so pivotal to your outfits. 

Influencers love to wear Agolde jeans. 

Style Notes: An oversize maxi dress is as much a summer staple as sunglasses or swimwear. The item is so easy to throw on as an all-in-one outfit. Increase the summer vibes with flat sandals and a beach bag, just like Anna Sarlvit has done here. 

Such a beautiful colour. 

These look way more expensive than they are. 

My dream basket bag. 

Style Notes: July isn’t all about skirts and dresses. Make like Lucy Williams and style a pair of trousers in a bright hue with a retro floral-print blouse. Finish with strappy sandals and your favourite basket bag.

Floral prints are a summertime classic for a reason. 

COS has some of the best trousers this season. 

Another basket bag I currently have on my wish list.

Ankle-straps with tie details are trending right now. 

Style Notes: Crochet was a big deal in the S/S 22 collections, so it’s little wonder that it has made such a monumental comeback this year. The easiest way to channel the trend is with a crochet dress just like María Bernad’s.

I own these, and get so many compliments on them.

Farm Rio is one of 2022’s coolest brands, hands down. 

The bright sole makes these sandals feel more joyful. 

Style Notes: Every Brit knows you always need to be in arm’s length of a jacket regardless of the time of year, and we’ve just found the coolest option out there. Monikh Dale’s fringed jacket will give every ensemble edge, especially when worn over a linen dress and finished with chunky trainers.

Wow! I need this jacket. 

The ultimate throw-on dress for summer. 

I’m obsessed with C. Nicol handbags. 

Retro-style kicks keep cropping up in the best outfits this summer. 

Style Notes: Jumpsuits take all the effort out of getting dressed, which is paramount when you want to maximise your time in the sunshine. Make your look even more seamless by matching your shoes to the colour of your jumpsuit, much like Charlotte Kuhrt did here.

This is guaranteed to be comfortable. 

In my opinion, no outfit is complete without a pair of gold hoops. 

Porte & Paire knows how to create great sandals. 

Style Notes: It might be time to trade in your jeans, but that doesn’t mean you need to completely forgo denim. Instead, take cues from Sylvie Mus and pair a denim midi skirt with an oversized shirt.

Use this as a cool alternative to a jacket this month.  

Yes, Missoma also creates chic eyewear. 

The fade on this denim midi skirt makes it look as if it could be vintage. 

If you buy one heel this summer, make it Russell & Bromley’s Mojito mules. 

Style Notes: No July wardrobe would be complete without some gingham. Make it even more quintessential by pairing it with a basket bag, just like Slip Into Style’s Ellie Delphine did.

Cut-outs are another massive dress trend for 2022. 

So pretty. 

I own these sandals, and have worn them endlessly over the past three summers. 

Style Notes: Wide-leg trousers are a staple this season, and it makes sense to pair them with another key item from the summer 2022 runways—a bra top. Just add crochet tote to complete the look. 

Asymmetric straps are key on dresses and tops right now. 

This is currently in my ASOS basket. 

The perfect wide-leg trouser does exist.

I love Castañer’s wedge espadrilles, so I can’t wait to try its new flats.
