Hot Girl Summer Outfit Ideas For All Your Events in 2022

Summer’s the time to whip out your sleeveless tees, denim shorts, flow-y sundresses, and cute crop tops! Need ideas for summer date night outfits? Grabbing brunch with your buddies by the beach? We’ve got everything you need right here!

For daytime errands or afternoon coffee with, a halter dress in soft blue or muted yellow gives off perfect summery vibes. Tie your hair in a messy bun or accessorise with fresh flowers for an ultra-feminine look.

For night-time events, a sexy corseted midi-dress in light cream colours will accentuate your curves without absorbing all that summer heat. Pair with dainty kitten-heel sandals or woven wedges—these will have your calves looking taught while your feet stay comfy.

Remember; summer outfits need to blend comfort and fashion! Nothing ruins a gorgeous fit more than sweat and grimacing. Stick to breathable materials like cotton and linen. For colours, light pastels and flattering creams will keep you cool.


Cute & Casual Summer Outfits

Summer’s the perfect time to show off your sunny, carefree self. So embody the easy-breezy attitude and embrace the singlets, bandeaus, and sleeveless tees! But if you prefer a little more coverage, indulge in loose, oversized dresses, maxi skirts, and comfortable – but stylish! – crop tops.

Remember; summer outfits should be kept light and airy. Darker colours absorb more heat, so try not to go for the blacks, deep reds, and royal navys. These aren’t a hard no per se, but they would work better as accent colours.

Cinch an oversized, butter yellow linen dress with a wide black belt to accentuate your waist. Or complement a cinched cream dress with a navy blue clutch or shoulder bag for a pop of colour! Got a cream crop top on? Match it with wide-legged pants in dark brown or soft maroon.

ROSA Crinkle Satin Crop Top

A modest cropped top with wraparound sashes can make a casual outfit look interesting.

PALMA Cinched Waist Linen Mini Dress

When you don’t have time to put together a cohesive outfit, a cinched summer dress in white, cream, or pale pink is the epitome of effortless style.

AVALEIGH Ring Detail Oversized Crinkle Dress

Beat the heat with a soft, oversized dress. Style it with solid-coloured leggings or wear it as is to look good and feel great.


Sexy Summer Outfits

If there’s ever a time to flaunt bare skin, it's summer! We’re talking halter tops, strappy camisoles, cute mini dresses, and maxi dresses with ruched detailing. Keeping cool and confident is the key to rocking sexy ensembles in the summer heat!

If you need hot girl summer outfits inspiration, go for pieces that highlight the parts of your body you want to accentuate. Halters are great for flattering collarbones and shoulders. Backless dresses can accentuate your toned back and gorgeous figure. Got an hourglass figure? Tight maxi dresses or mermaid skirts can hug your curves in the best way!

Summer Work Outfits for the Office

Summer means business casual. Does anyone actually show up to the office in full pantsuits and fitted turtleneck sweaters when it’s forty degrees?

We definitely don’t.

Anyway, it is possible to put together modest summer outfits for more formal settings. They need not be bland and frumpy, either! You can still rock your free-spirit vibes and summer bod in tasteful office outfits. It’s all about the cut, colour, and silhouette.

For instance, a spaghetti-strap bodysuit styled with a well-fitted pair of wide-legged linen pants can highlight a tiny, toned waist or generous hips. If you’re in a hurry, you can’t go wrong with a form-fitting maxi dress – like the JHENE dress we linked below – with small, interesting details that add texture! Think a sexy thigh slit or an asymmetrical cut.

JHENE Tank Maxi Dress

A tank cut is one of the simplest ways to glam up a summer staple. Get one made out of figure-hutting material to add some extra oomph! to your fit.

MIKA Ribbed Scoop Neck Bodysuit

A bodysuit is one of the best pieces to ensure a smooth, seamless tuck. If you’re on the go, this ribbed bodysuit will keep your fit flattering no matter what!

SOFIA Straight Leg Pants

Pair these SOFIA pants with the MIKA bodysuit for a stylish – but modest! – fit. Get both in white for an eye-catching ensemble!


Summer Date Night Outfits

Need to make a strong first impression for a potential new beau? Got a hot date with your long-term lover and want to spice things up a little? It’s summer! Turn up the heat with some choice tops and sensual dresses that’ll make you feel bold, beautiful, and effortlessly flirty.

Maxi dresses with choice cut-outs are simple but suggestive. Take full advantage of that by picking one in a powder red or burnt orange colour to match your fire.

Alternatively, go for something with a subtle, simple print. The ZOE dress we link below, for instance, has a simple fiery, floral print that’s as tasteful as it is eye-catching!

But if you’re going to opt for something a little less flow-y – like a midi-dress with corseted torso or structured bodice – stick with a white or cream colour scheme.

Accentuate your shape with soft, breathable fabric that skims, clings, and drapes about your curves.

ZOE Cowl Front Printed Maxi Dress

Dresses like this are key to looking effortlessly stunning. The slightly loose neckline paired with the curve-hugging fabric elevates the outfit from fresh to fire!


Summer Brunch Outfits

Planned a paradise-themed, beachside brunch with the besties? Or maybe you’re meeting up with dearest mum-in-law for mid-morning tea and toast?

Look your best even under the sweltering heat of the sun with summer-inspired fits!

Be inspired by those boho babes and don a halter top linen maxi dress with a full flowing skirt in ivory white. Not really your style? Then go for a midi cut instead and swap out the glowing white for a softer, earthier colour. Make it even comfier by keeping the halter top and styling it with a pair of worn denim jeans.

A spaghetti-strap camisole or singlet with interesting cut-outs would work well in this combo, too!
