If you have your sights set on Europe in the summer time, then it might be time to start thinking about your trip outfits!

Keep reading for 6 outfits you should definitely take with you on your next trip! Note that these are excellent foundational pieces that can be mixed and matched to create even more looks than the ones described below.
Outfit Inspiration For Cute Summer Outfits For Europe
I have covered essential items to pack for a trip to Europe, below is all about inspiration on cute summer outfits for Europe. Whether you are heading to Paris this summer, hanging out on Amalfi coast or the strolling through Nice, below are chic, versatile, comfortable and a touch of boho to inspiration for your Europe summer travel outfits. In addition, also check out my post on comfortable shoes and sandals for Europe.
Dress + Sneakers combo
Two things are more than likely if you travel to Europe in the summer: it will probably be very hot, and you will do lots of walking. That’s why the dress and sneaker combo is a go-to for many fashionable summer travellers; it’s practical and cute! You could wear a maxi dress, a wrap dressm a t-shirt dress, basically any kind of dress and add a pair of sneakers for a chic yet comfy look.
Graphic tee + printed skirt + sandals
For a fun, trendy look that will still look chic, try a graphic tee and skirt look with your favorite sandals. A cotton graphic tee will keep you cool in the European summer heat, while the printed skirt elevates it to something a little more fashion forward.
Play around with styles and shapes like pairing an oversized concert tee with a mini skirt, or rocking a cropped top with an a-line midi skirt. Finally pair with comfy sandals and maybe some sunglasses to finish off the look.
Belted shorts + Tank + Straw Hat
Don’t make the mistake of leaving your shorts home on a summer vacation! While short shorts might not be the most comfortable for all-day wear, loose cotton or high-waisted shorts can be such a comfortable addition to your euro trip wardrobe.
A fitted tank top or camisole with a pair of belted cotton shorts just screams summer in Europe and it will do the job looking effortlessly put together. The hat is of course an additional accessory to take the outfit up a notch.
A white cotton button down or t-shirt should be an essential in every woman’s wardrobe. This piece is so versatile (especially in the summertime), if you don’t have one you definitely should get one soon! Loosely knot your button down and pair with a loose wide-leg pant or culottes and a comfy pair of loafers. You’ll be able to go from sightseeing to wine tasting straight to dinner without having to change!
Printed Jumpsuit + Sandals
For a dinner evening, or something a little more formal, don’t feel like you need to throw on a pair of heels to feel more glam (although you can of course, if you like). Many of us hate the idea of wearing heels on vacation and luckily, you don’t have to!
A long jumpsuit in an all over print is striking enough to make a statement, and the good news is you can leave the heels home because chances are no one will see your feet. Add your favorite clutch bag, let down your hair and swipe on some lip gloss for that easy, sun kissed look.
The Easy To Wear Dress + Sandal Combo
I love a good loose dress during summer. If you pack a maxi or nice easier to wear shirt dress, you can easily have multiple outfits without having to pack too many items. They can also be worn styled for dinner or casual day-wear to explore the streets of Paris, London, Santorini or chilling on the shorelines near the beaches of Amalfi Coast.
The looser the better especially when the weather is hot. But also bear in mind to pack som sunscreen if you have a strappy dress with plenty of skin exposed. Also, pack a shawl for the evening when the temperatures drop.
