Five Alluring Neutral-Themed Summer Outfit Inspirations

The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and it’s time to hit upgrade on your summer wardrobe! While many people like to opt for bright colors and floral prints for summer, this year, we’re in love with neutral shades for warmer weather. If you’re anything like us and are looking for some neutral outfit ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Keep reading for five fabulous neutral outfit ideas to kickstart your summer closet refresh.

1. For the Office

We know, we know, we said we were going neutral this season, but we had to throw in one summer outfit idea for our color lovers out there! If you’re going back to the office this summer, our Tiburon Tunic in color Sunshine is the perfect addition to your office attire but it also works for your zoom calls. The Tiburon Tunic is one of our best-selling styles and for good reason. It fits and flatters many body types and it’s made of high quality, organic cotton blended stretchy poplin that makes it super easy to get dressed in the morning. The pleated, stretchy jersey back, keeps things very comfortable and breezy. If your office dress code is more business professional, try throwing our Go To Cardiganover this top for a more polished look. The best part is that our Tiburon Tunic is available in 9 different colors so you can choose to keep it neutral or go bright! Because this top is longer than your average work top, we love to pair it with our Slimming Ankle Pants for office wear. Thesebottomsare made from a stretchy Tencel® blended Ponte knit that is made to be flattering and stylish even though they feel like you’re wearing leggings! 

A good office bagis key, and we recommend finding one that can match with different colors, prints, and styles so you can use it daily! The Coach Tyler Carryall 28 is definitely one of those bags and it pairs perfectly with this look. The structured silhouette in polished pebble leather gives this bag a professional flair without being boring. It carries you through the day with effortless 24/7 style while keeping your belongings organized inside its multifunctional pockets.

2. For Date Night

Stuck on what to wear for date night? We’ve got you covered. For a super stylish and comfortable outfit, pair our classy Go To Cardigan with our Favorite Thing Tank over the Slimming Ankle Pants. Then finish this great ensemble with comfortable sandals and you are all set! Whether you’re planning to chow down on a delicious dinner or dance the night away, you can never go wrong with this stunning neutral-colored look. 

When wearing a standout outfit such as this one, you want to keep the shoes understated yet complimentary and most importantly comfortable that won’t leave your feet in pain. The Coclico Owls Sandalis a beautiful heeled sandal that is stylish yet won’t distract from the outfit. These shoes were made with comfort in mind and offer a low, softly curved, solid wood heel with a feminine t-strap design.

3. For Brunch with the Girls

Nothing screams summertime like a crisp, all-white outfit, and going out with your girlfriends is the perfect time to rock it! Start with a casual yet put-together white knit top like our Starburst Top. This top features a flattering scoop neck, gorgeous stitching, and is sleeveless so you can stay stylish and breezy while brunching! Then, rock your knit top with a pair of crisp white capris to stay comfy and cool in the warm weather. Our favorite capris are the Stella Carakasi Second Nature Capris because they’re made from breathable, organic cotton and spandex jersey. The added button detail at the side of the slightly shirred hems really takes these capris up a notch from your regular leggings.

We love pairing this outfit with the Coach Swinger 20 bag with Garden Embroidery. Not only is this bag perfect for summer with its cute and trendy details, but it’s also made of durable leather that will last you years. This bag is a great size for brunching or lunching that will fit all of your necessities!

4. For Running Errands

Who says you can’t look cute while running your errands? Start your outfit off with a crisp classic white shirt like our Legacy Shirt. This top is our take on a timeless, white summer shirt with its easy shape, unique covered front placket design, and practical front pockets. It’s made from a stretchy, blended organic cotton poplin to keep things eco-friendly and comfy. And what goes better with a white shirt than some denim?! Our denim knit Criss Cross Leggings are made from an organic cotton / recycled polyester stretchy knit for a more comfortable alternative to your classic jeans. You can run errands with ease and still look stylish in our denim knit Criss Cross Leggings topped with our Legacy Shirt.

A tote with a strap is a must-have for everyday, errand running. It won’t get in your way while doing your tasks, plus your hands will be free! One of our favorites is the Coach Field Tote made from salvaged and repurposed woven leather scraps. This beauty not only reduces the impact on our planet but it is also one of those bags you can take from errand running to the office and to a fun-filled weekend with ease while it holds everything you need in place.

5. For a Park Day

Whether you’re heading to the park for a picnic or just to take in the scenery, you can never go wrong with a denim tunic over comfy leggings and a pair of sneakers. The Stella Carakasi Heatwave Tunic over the Ready To Wear Leggings is a necessity in everyone’s closet for keeping things casual and cute! Both styles are made from sustainable fabrics that can be worn with many different styles in your closet! 

Pair this outfit with classic white sneakers like the Coach Lowline Luxe Low Top Sneakerto create the best park day outfit. These shoeswere made to be worn all day yet still look fashionable with their durable leather. Plus, you can wear these sneakers for endless occasions and with so many different outfits!
