The very moment temperatures rise above that crucial 60-degree mark, nearly every storefront starts looking the same: dresses upon dresses in every print and shape. The quintessential summer frock is great and everything, but many people don't want to wear one every single day. Here are 20 outfits for spring and summer that don't include dresses, because sometimes a girl just needs a break.

After piling on the layers all winter long, it feels pretty good when the weather finally permits wearing just one item of clothing. A few days of flowery, flowy sundresses, though, and the whole concept can start to feel a bit too easy for an expert outfit curator like yourself.

Creating different combinations with your extensive wardrobe is half the fun, so don't let the ease of summer dressing keep you from getting creative with your warm-weather looks. Rest assured you'll be declaring a hiatus from your summer dresses when you see what these fashion-forward celebrities have come up with.

From Gigi Hadid's head-to-toe tie dye to Gemma Chan's summer-ready take on bold color blocking, these easy-to-recreate ensembles will keep you on-trend all season long — no dresses required.

Ahead, 20 celebrity street style looks worth adding to your rotation immediately.

White Pants & Printed Top

White pants were once a thing of the past but the retro bottoms have just recently made a comeback. Pair them with a colorful printed top and there you have yourself the easiest summer outfit.

Pajama-Inspired Separates

Slippers, pajama sets, glorified nightgowns, and you-name-it: Sleepwear is suddenly chic, so consider Karlie Kloss' rendition a subtle introduction.

Denim Skirt

There's nothing new about a good old-fashion denim miniskirt, but a denim maxi? Now, that's groundbreaking. Thank you, Yara Shahidi.

Retro Polka Dots

This '70s-inspired bellbottom set adorned with all-over polka dots (down to the shoe) is Whitney Port-approved.

Bike Shorts & Leather Jacket

You don't have to cycle to brunch to wear bike shorts, according to this it-girl. Paired with a crop top and leather jacket makes for a super-edgy weekend look.

Sequin Skirt

Nothing catches the summer sunlight like sequins in the daytime. Channel your obsession with sparkly things into a shimmery midi like Emma Roberts'.

Tie-Dye Co-Ords

Believe it or not, the tie-dyed cotton tee-and-shorts combo you used to play soccer in is now a certified fashion statement, endorsed by Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Hailey Baldwin and the rest of them.

Utilitarian Romper

The summer version of a utility jumpsuit is a cargo romper, of course. Priyanka Chopra makes the workwear trend look chic.

Say it's just too chilly to wear shorts — or, more likely, your legs haven't been exposed to sunlight in eight months — Olivia Palermo has the solution for both: tights.

Pastel Power Suit

Put a warm-weather spin on your classic separates and try them in color for a change. Pastels are all over the place.

Denim Overalls

Channel your inner country girl with a pair of Kendall Jenner-approved overalls (straw hat optional).

Metallic Shorts & Graphic Tee

Elevate your everyday shorts and t-shirt look by adding a touch of metallic to the mix. A single pair of statement bottoms could breathe life back into your graphic tee collection.

Bold Color Blocking

Embrace the colors of summer by mixing bright, solid-color pieces together. You might just find that color blocking is surprisingly easy to pull off.

Sweater & Pleated Midi

Those leftover winter knits come in handy for cool spring mornings. Pair them with a pretty pleated midi skirt for a more warm weather-appropriate look.

White Jumpsuit

You don't have to bid adieu to the one piece altogether. Rather than a dress, reach instead for your favorite linen jumpsuit.

Tweed Skirt Suit

Shailene Woodley's pencil midi and matching crop top are the 2019 version of a classic skirt suit and the perfect work outfit, too.

Printed Tie-Front Top

These knot-front crop tops are the cutest top trend of spring. Just throw it on with your favorite high-waisted denim and go.

Tiger Stripes

Tiger stripes are the animal print du jour. Chrissy Teigen wasn't afraid to sport them (and with trend-forward bike shorts, as well).


You know what they say: no white after Labor Day. Rule follower or not, spring and summer are the best seasons to squeeze in your white-on-white fix.

Checked Separates

As for your work wardrobe, liven up those old separates by switching out your solid colors for classic check print.
