Low-Key Summer Outfits You Can Wear Over and Over Again

Summer is for soaking up the sun, picnics in the park, sunset cocktails, and sidewalk brunches—not spending copious amounts of time fussing over what to wear. That's not to say one shouldn't look stylish while partaking in the aforementioned activities, which calls for a rotation of no-brainer, throw-on-and-go ensembles that you'll look and feel great in.

A few seasonal standbys go without saying (sundresses, T-shirts), but other staples, that are perhaps less obvious, promise endless versatility and an array of warm weather–friendly getups when added into the rotation. Here we break down five of our favorite simple summer outfit formulas that you can wear on repeat.

Red florals and ruffles—there's nothing cuter.
