The short sleeve construction makes it perfectly on-trend with the hot season, while the ruffled hemline adds a feminine touch.

The perfectly round shape adds an effortless 60s vibe that works all year round.

Available in women’s sizes XS to XL, the 5-star rated piece strikes a comfortable A-line silhouette, accented with soft scalloping on its hemline that reviewers call “simple and elegant.”

Balance Heidi Carey’s delicate dress with these Rad + Refined Mono color cat-eye sunglasses. The brand is beloved and a favorite of Hollywood stars including Cardi B, Kylie Jenner and Paris Hilton. Plus, if that doesn’t instantly elevate this look to “girl cool” status, the frame’s unexpected red hue will.

Add wearability to this look with the Amanda trainers from French Sole. Ready to wear in women’s sizes 6-11, all three colors look great, but the navy stripes complemented by natural jute on the sole really spoke to us.

Show your lips some love by applying a few coats of Jouer Cosmetic’s moisturizing balm. The warm red tint amplifies your natural color while providing the right amount of hydration to withstand even the hottest temperatures.

Oh, and speaking of temperatures, if (or when) they start to drop, pair this look with this beloved Amazon 4th of July approved denim jacket. Available in sizes XS to XXL, this distressed denim features strategically placed star patches that are all “perfect” as Amazon reviews claim.

4. Stay stylish in Torrid’s star and spandex shorts

Upgrade your outdated biker shorts with this bright blue pair. Available in women’s extended sizes 00-6X, the high waisted fit smoothes and flatters figures, while the 4-way stretch allows for good recovery, meaning the days of your shorts being rolled up are over!

Pair this comfy look with Steve Madden’s Pepe 30 sandals. Ready to wear in sizes 6 to 10, the 3.5-inch white platform brings all the nostalgia of the 90s.

Available in sizes XS to XL, the navy and beige knit design has a straight neckline and adjustable tie straps that show a little skin without revealing too much. Versatile as always, this top will go with everything from jeans to cut off shorts, but we love it with Everlane’s linen pants.

These pants come in three colors and sizes 00-20. The pleated wide leg skims the floor and the 100% linen makes them breathable and lightweight. Dress them up for the 4th of July or dress them up for the wedding season; either way, they’re sure to please.
