May Outfit Inspirations: 13 Looks for Sun-Soaked Days


The month of May brings with it a slew of colorful outfits, bright colors, and breezy styles. Trends are soft pastels like periwinkle and yellow. Tennis-inspired looks from Serena Williams and Zendaya are also a big hit. Wrap it all up in a pink satin ribbon, as Kacey Musgraves did this season.

The graphic tee is having a moment, and this version by Tyler McGillivary takes the modern Cowgirl trend into consideration. Pair a bold equestrian top with accessories that match the theme and a pair of casual denim shorts.

Short and Sweet

For warm-weather activities, you’ll want something more casual than the typical athleisure outfit. This outfit combines lightweight shorts and a fluttery shirt, proving you can still maintain style and comfort in the scorching heat.

Skipping the Rules

Barbie Ferreira’s festival look may have you reconsidering your previous thoughts on a pleated summer skirt. This is not the only way to dress for summer. If we’ve learned anything from Coachella’s outfits this year, it’s that you can’t go wrong with a statement belt and a mini-skirt.

Picnic Elegance

You caught us daydreaming, much like Kacey Musgraves does here. This dreamy look of the Deeper Well star evokes images of fairytales and cottages. The pastel florals are a perfect fit. A wide-brimmed, oversized hat and a satin bow also create dramatic silhouettes.

Beachside Buttons

This outfit could be worn in any episode of The White Lotus. This resort-ready dress is perfect for catching a flight abroad or browsing vacation options. It features a sleek, ’60s-inspired cut that’s similar to the current Palm Beach Chic trend.

Game, Set, Match

Serena Williams is an expert at balancing athleisure and dressier pieces. Combine a floral midi-skirt with practical sneakers and a weatherproof jacket to be ready for anything the day may bring.

Geometric Getting

Your bikini, and the matching coverup, deserve to spend more time out in the sun – as well as in your everyday wardrobe. Pair a matching pair with wide-leg denim and pointed-toe boots to create a striking yet wearable contrast.

Breezy Basics

Consider this retro-inspired, fun take on monochrome as your unofficial uniform for summer. When paired with red sunglasses, these on-trend studded shoes are a must-have.

Slip Into Summer

We bet you’ve already scanned through a dozen micro mini slips on your social media feed. Hailey Bieber pairs a sweet, satin-lined piece with leather boots and a bejeweled pendant necklace.

Bring May Flowers

Vintage-inspired blouses have been on trend this summer. The floral details of Anthropologie’s version capture the same ethereal spirit as Laufey’s Miu Miu item, but at a much more affordable price. You can follow suit by wearing a string of pearl earrings with a wrap skirt.

Daring Denim

For all your outdoor adventures, we’ve got denim outfits that are perfect for any occasion. From hikes to picnics in the park and drinks outside (it counts too), there are denim ensembles suitable for every situation. You can swap out this jacket with a matching denim vest depending on the weather in your area.

Structured Sundress

We can’t get enough of this structured silhouette ( or in our online shopping baskets). The corset and drop-waist dresses are particularly on-trend at the moment, adding a stylish twist to a summer staple. The cherry on top is a red bag in contrast.

Sunny Style

Ashley Graham’s look is a great example of how vibrant colors can be on sunny days. Pairing rich botanical shades, such as sage and bright yellow for a striking look that’s perfect for brunches in May, is not to be avoided.
