Summer is in full swing, and if you’re tired of wearing the same jean shorts and ratty old t-shirt you’ve had since 2010, it might be time for an update. We put together a summer capsule wardrobe featuring pieces that give full-on nautical, coastal chic vibes. These closet staples are perfect for mixing and matching so you can make the most of your seasonal attire. See our summer capsule wardrobe inspiration from Old Navy below.

Basic Tops: Tanks and tees are the name of the game! A simple racerback tank, a neutral tank bodysuit, a vintage-inspired tee, and a fun striped short sleeve are perfect for switching up your daily style.

Long Sleeves: Even though the summer can be a scorcher, having a couple of long sleeve tops on hand is always a good idea. Grab a white long sleeve tee and a cute pullover that you can wear on those cooler nights.

Bottoms: Keep your bottoms light and breezy. Grab a classic pair of jean shorts, a light pair of linen shorts, a silky satin midi skirt, and a button down shirt dress and wear these pieces for any and every occasion.

Shoes: Let those toes breathe! Sandals and open-toed shoes are definitely the main feature in the summer, and these sparkling sandals, strappy mules, and platform espadrilles are as versatile as they are stylish. And a pair of slip-on sneakers is great for a more casual, sporty summer vibe.

Outfit Inspiration

Jean shorts are a summer staple! Keep it casual with a vintage tee and mules, go for a classic vibe with a striped tee and slip-on shoes, or wear them on a chilly night with a long sleeve shirt and platform espadrilles.

Linen is a great fabric for the hot weather! Pair these shorts with a pullover and flip-flops on a chilly night by the water, style with a tank bodysuit and platform espadrilles for a chic vibe, or wear with a tank and mules for a mix of classy and casual.

A silky satin skirt can be dressed up or down! Wear it for work with a tank bodysuit and platform espadrilles, family brunch with a striped tee and flip-flops, or an evening vacation stroll with a cozy pullover and slip-on sneakers.

A button-down shirt dress can really wow with the right accessories! To keep it laidback, layer it with a pullover and throw on sparkly flip-flops; to keep it sophisticated, pair it with platform espadrilles and maybe a cute belt; to keep it fashion-forward, wear it over a tank and finish with slip-on sneakers.
