The weather is heating up and our thoughts are turning towards summer – and it’s everyone’s favorite time of year! It’s time to pull out the shorts and bathing suits and prepare for camping, exploring, and spending time outside with our favorite people. Here are our tips for planning for the best warm weather wardrobe.

Live your best summer life with a wardrobe that’s pretty and comfy. Living your best wardrobe life means being able to explore, be active, spend time with friends all without worrying about your clothes. Choosing clothes that are comfortable while also being pretty and flattering is the best of both worlds.

Pretty and Comfortable.

One of our favorite picks is one of our breezy summer dresses. Lands’ End dresses are made to flatter every body and are airy for keeping cool when the temperatures are hot. And we have summer dresses for every body type. Shop petite maxi dresses for a cute dress that was made for your body (and won’t drown you in fabric).

Another summer essential is a pair of women’s shorts, pair with a tank top for extra hot days or for extra coverage opt for a pair of Bermuda shorts with one of our women’s tunic tops (not just for leggings anymore) or classic women’s polo shirts. Like many favorites of women’s clothing, the Polo shirt was originally borrowed from menswear, but we have re-thought and re-designed it just for your frame and figure in a variety of materials and styles. If you prefer a longer placket or a tennis tail, you’ll find those here. If you like sporty stripes or dainty prints, we have that, too. From the golf course to running errands, whether you prioritize crisp looks or hard-wearing performance fabric, there is a Polo shirt for every style.

Plan for transitional weather.

What to wear when the weather is undecided, but you are craving light, bright colors? Women’s jumpers and cardigans are just what you need for cool summer evenings on the lake and over air-conditioned offices, too. Another warm weather staple of women’s clothing, women’s crops & capris are a welcome nod to warmer weather! They can be styled with a cardigan or blazer and some smart women’s loafers to be worn early in the season when you just need a change from your women’s leggings and tunics!

Pick your favorite trends.

Every season brings out a number of new trends. We don’t recommend trying to keep up with everything. Instead, choose a few of your favorite ideas for the season and grab just a few pieces you can incorporate into your wardrobe. A favorite for this season is multi-color denim. Colorful denim in both brights and pastels is trending, and we have it! Feast your eyes on light amethyst or a peachy cameo pink. These colorful jeans are appropriate for women of all ages and for a variety of outfits and occasions; and easy to pair with the basics you already have in your closet.

Stock up on swimwear.

The last think you want to be doing before your summer vacation is scrambling for a new suit to bring. Instead, stock up on your women’s swimsuits now, so you will already have a swimsuit you love when it’s time to start planning for your annual family beach party this summer. Whether you want to rock a bikini or prefer a modest women’s swimdresses, Lands’ End offers an ideal swim solution for every Lands’ End shopper. Whether you prioritize sun protection with our UPF 50 sun protection women’s rash guards and swim shorts for women, getting active in a practical one-piece or prefer a full coverage modest swimsuit, we know we have a swimsuit to delight you.

Our swimwear collection is a point of pride for another reason, too.
