Anthropologie POV: Normalize Cute Summer Outfits for Both Vacay and Gen Summer Play
You know, whenever a brand launches its summer/resort collection, it kind of sets up this obligation for the clothes to be vacay-ready, right? Like perfect for Portugal, oh-so-necessary for Napa Valley, coastal and contemporary for cruising the Caribbean. Makes sense, we get it, but a summer edit doesn’t
have to be limited to jet-setting looks, it can also just be a fun set of staples (both formal and more casj) for the warm-weather season. And that’s exactly what we love about
Anthropologie’s latest resortwear wardrobe. From catching rays and relaxing in the shade to al fresco fare and evenings under the stars, whatever you’ll be doing from June through September will be well-dressed in Anthro.
Summer standouts and what will work for each occasion
Note, for its summer lineup, Anthropologie does what it does best — providing options for both the bold and more understated style setters among us.
For the trips: tropical and otherwise
When you’re prepping for a summer sojourn that takes you out to sea or has you sipping spritzes poolside, you’ll want a breezy, yet unabashedly polished and playful collection of pieces that work for elevated excursions and simple beach days alike.

For the viral moments: bikini debuts and anticipated social coups
Okay, so I’m def not talking about myself when it comes to a summer swim debut (at nearly 8 months pregnant with my third babe, I’m nowhere near Kim K SI status — and yes, she was like super sick for all those 😮 shots, just sayin’). But for most everyone else, that first summer swimsuit post is huge: like, it needs to arrest everyone in their [scrolling] tracks type of energy. Same goes for the summer wedding scene. If you’ll be attending destination nuptials or your bestie’s bachelorette party in the Bahamas, your ensembles will need to show uppp just as festively.

For the staycationers: might not have official OOO messages up, but they’ve put the pjs and cotton athleisure down (for summer’s duration)
Summer is the best time to getaway, especially when it feels like everyone around you is ✌️ out for a hot minute. But if you’re
going anywhere any time soon, you can still pretend you are with a vacay-viable mani and pedi and printed loungewear to make anyone jealous of your lazy-but-so-luxe look. Suffice it to say that you can bring your laptop to the beach and crank out work in the sand in the chicest coverups and kaftans…

Anthropologie has the right resort fits for every awaited escape. Here’s where we’d start and how we’d layer…
• Fill your beach bag with the basics first: like a LBB (the little black bikini, of course) or an on-point one-piece swimsuit
• Create a cute summer outfit by pairing women’s shorts with light-and-bright beach tunics
• Pack a comfy-casual beach dress for the daytime, and a midi or maxi skirt for a night on the town
• For shoes, peruse the brand’s women’s sliders, sandals, and tie-ups for some extra pep to your step
• And in your beach tote, if you still have room, toss in a cover up and some classic beach accessories like sunglasses, a sarong, and headband
