10 Effortless Looks from Express

Can you believe it’s almost August?! Summer is flying by but it feels like the days are getting hotter and hotter. Between pool days, dinner dates, and running around town with the kids, I’ve been making an effort to keep my looks both casual and comfortable to help beat the heat. I’ve been loving Express this summer for their classic staples from tops to jeans to sandals, so I wanted to share my top picks with you!

Express holds a mission of creating confidence and inspiring self-expression. They believe everyone should dream big and dress accordingly. One main reason I’ve been loving Express this season is because their pieces are versatile, comfortable, and most importantly, are made with breathable fabric to withstand those long, hot summer days. From relaxed, everyday looks to chic nighttime outfits, Express has tons of options that’ll keep you looking (and feeling) good all summer. Check out my top picks below!

Hide Waisted Side Tie Buckle Midi Skirt

This midi skirt is a must-have for both the office and date nights! The midi length is sophisticated but still gives you a fun summer look with the tie buckle. Available in white and black and runs true to size.

Ruffle Sleeve Crew Neck Thong Bodysuit

Kicking off my Express roundup with this adorable, fun bodysuit! I love bodysuits because they are super easy to throw on and pair well with jean shorts and denim. The ruffle detail on the sleeves makes this bodysuit look more tailored and put together! Runs true to size.

Super High Waisted Belted Pleated Paperbag Shorts

Paperbag shorts have been a big trend this summer. I love how comfortable these are while still giving you a tailored look! They come in both black and white and look great with a simple cami or bodysuit. Runs true to size.

Ruched V-Neck Peplum Cami

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m not really much of a t-shirt and jeans gal. I did, however, try out this classic combo the other day and actually loved it. 2021 is changing me! But I’m still not fully on board, so in the meantime, I’ll be wearing this peplum cami to keep my outfits looking more “me” this summer!

Textured Double-Breasted Boyfriend Blazer

A white blazer is a must-have for summer! This blazer will get tons of wear outside the office. The boyfriend style is more relaxed than a normal blazer so I love pairing it with an all-white outfit for a chic summer look for both day and nighttime! Runs true to size.

Super High Waisted Supersoft White Raw Hem Slim Jeans

Denim trends come and go, but white jeans will always remain timeless. The raw hem gives these jeans a more casual everyday look and the high waist will make your legs look extra long! These come in regular, short, petite, and long, and run true to size.

Long Puff Sleeve Boyfriend Blazer

Another amazing blazer for summer is this black boyfriend blazer. The dramatic shoulder on this one is what sold me! I love wearing it with these black shorts for a workwear-inspired look. Runs true to size.

Ruched Band Slide Sandals

Leather slides are one of the easiest ways to elevate a look! The ruched band on these will give your outfits a more complete look. They come in black and cognac, but I recommend getting both because you’ll be wearing these almost daily! Runs true to size.

Super High Waisted Medium Wash Mom Jeans

Sticking to the 90s trend, these vintage-looking jeans will be getting a lot of use this summer! They are made with cotton and spandex, which makes these jeans extra comfortable and extra breathable, and great for warm weather. Runs true to size.

Body Contour Double Layer High Neck Thong Bodysuit

This bodysuit comes in tons of colors and is a must-have piece for summer. I love wearing bodysuits with tailored shorts, denim shorts, or jeans because you won’t spend all day tucking in your tank top or t-shirt! This one is also perfect to layer with lightweight sweaters or blazers, making it a staple piece you’ll reach for year-round.
