Summer is arguably the most difficult season to dress for. While spring at leasts gets the benefit of light outerwear, the warmest month of the year is particularly challenging due to exactly that: it’s hot. While shorts, a graphic T-shirt and some white sneakers is as good an outfit as any, it quickly gets stale, and come July there are fewer and fewer avenues to freak it. Thankfully, you do have options. While your outfit will likely only comprise a few pieces, if you pick wisely, focus on statement pieces and are smart with fabric and color palette, even the most basic summer fit can pop off.

For summer 2020, the key is being keenly aware of the prevailing trends and slyly incorporating them into your pre-existing wardrobe—all while staying cool. While this may seem a gargantuan task, we have already done most of the work for you. Below, we break down the six looks to try this summer, and how to nail each and every one. All you have to do is shop. Summertime, and the living’s easy.
