Summer fashion and summer clothing can be so much fun but given that you are exposing a little more skin, it can also be daunting to find the most flattering pieces. You want to look your absolute best.
I’ve been scouring all your favorite affordable retailers looking for cute summer fashion finds that fit, flatter and keep you cool.
For size reference, I’m 5’2″ and wear small to medium tops and 6-8 in pants. I’m 32 inches in the waist and 42 inches in the hips.
Walmart Cute Summer Fashion Finds
I tried these in grey and studio blue. There are several color options. At their affordable price, you can get these shorts in several colors.
These are super comfortable with a 4-inch inseam and elastic sides. They are made from cotton/ viscose and spandex, so they have just the right amount of stretch. They are a great option for curvy ladies and have plenty of room in the thighs.
Other reviewers say they wash well. I tried them in a size 6 (blue) and 8 (grey) and didn’t see much of a difference in size other than the smaller ones were a little snugger in the thighs but both stretch.
My rear view isn’t my best view but I know it’s helpful to have a view of the back sometimes.
These do not have a lot of stretch but do hold you in and still have a decent amount of room in the thighs. The cuff is stitched in place. The denim is a little heavier than other denim shorts I have had. Wearing size 8.
My husband says these are “horrible” as far as appearance and at first glance I was not impressed but I think they could grow on me. They are comfortable and can be worn with casual pants, shorts, and dresses. The thick sole will give you a little height if needed. Almost all reviews say they are comfortable.
This top is incredibly soft. A little flowy and big at the bottom but a front tuck resolves that issue, or you can size down. Wearing a small.
These are a little too long for my preference but I’m sharing for those of you that prefer a longer short or for those that are a little taller. I generally size up in this brand. I tried both an 8 and a 10. Size up according to your desired fit, two sizes if you want them loose.
Made from a cool blend of rayon and polyester, this dress will be a comfortable option when the heat rises. It’s roomy in the bottom and a little billowy but washing may make it relax a little. I included the side view for reference. I’m wearing a medium but could probably size down to a small.
This dress showcases the prettiest lavender print, ruffle trim sleeves and a universally flattering V-neck neckline. Wear it to work, church, or a bridal shower. Wearing a medium.

100% cotton and so soft! I’m wearing a medium. These have ample room in the legs. They come in multiple color and print options. These are a great go to for lounging and still being presentable for errands without having to change.
The lace sleeves give this waffle knit top a cute, dressy vibe. I’m wearing a small. It has a perfect fit that’s not fitted but not loose
The description says these come in regular and curvy fit, but the options are classic and straight. I ordered the classic and they appear to be the curvy fit. The material is thick but not too thick for summer. With 98% cotton and 2% elastane, they have a nice stretch. Wearing an 8. 13 color options.
Wearing a medium. These are also a 5-inch inseam, which is usually my go to. I have these from years past and this pair seems small compared to the others so you may want to size up or order two of the same size to compare best fit. These are a linen/cotton blend and perfect for summer. 12 color options.
Wearing a small. This shirt feels SO good on. It’s a polyester cotton blend and feels like silk. It’s just a tad oversized but not sloppy. It’s perfect for work or weekends and can be worn with everything from shorts to jeans to chino pants to skirts.
Wearing a medium but I found it to be too long and too big. Otherwise, it’s a pretty top that would look great under a blazer for work or on its own for date night.
Old Navy Summer Finds
This plaid top has the cutest details that make it anything but plain. The ruffles, smocking and cut out all make it a step above your average top. My only issue is that it’s a little boxy and big in the body.
These high waist pants have a cropped wide leg but are more fitted than a lot of wide leg pants. They have a good amount of stretch. Wearing an 8 petite.
Perfect for errands or hiking and more athletic activities. Even if you aren’t athletic, you may want to consider them for the ample leg opening and comfy elastic waistband.
This dress is a cotton/rayon blend and will keep you cool but still cute. The ruffle hem and puff sleeves make it so feminine. It has side pockets and an inner lining. The inner lining is a bit smaller than the dress. Wearing a small. It’s a great summer dress.
