Summer is in full swing and I’m excited to share some affordable summer outfits from Walmart with you. Think breathable cotton dresses perfect for casual days or dressing up, distressed shorts and even vegan leather sandals. These are all pieces you can mix and match and style multiple ways to really get your bang for your buck. Plus, when it comes to summer, I love keeping it simple. If shopping at Walmart can be overwhelming, I have a few pieces of advice I’ll share below for how to find cute outfits for summer.
Tips for Finding the Best Items on Walmart.com
I’ll be honest, it’s a lot easier to shop online via Walmart.com than in-store. You can filter by size, price and then schedule an in-store pickup or have the items delivered to your front door.
Shop Only Walmart.com
For the best results, I recommend filtering results under retailer to only show Walamrt.com. A lot of third-party companies distribute and sell their items through Walmart’s marketplace. I find you’ll get the best quality, results and customer service by shopping Walmart’s own items. Plus, almost all of Walmart.com’s items have free 2-day shipping if you spend more than $35.
Look at All Colors
Many of the items are available in multiple colors. Be sure to take a peek at all of them because sometimes the feature image may not jive with you. When I first saw the tiered midi dress I’m wearing below, the feature image was bright pink. I wasn’t the biggest fan but upon seeing this beige color I was instantly sold! It easily makes the list for one of my favorite affordable outfits for summer.
Check out Inspo
Walmart recently launched an Instagram account for Walmart Fashion. You can find outfit inspo on here, see pieces styled and more! If you want a jumping-off point, it’s a great place to start.
First on this list of my affordable summer outfits from Walmart is this tiered midi dress, available in seven colors. I’m actually wearing a size small in this dress. Another color I really like is the gray or the black. I’m 5’3 for reference and the midi length hits right at the knee. I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve really enjoyed longer length hems on dresses and skirts lately.
Since I’m wearing a size small, it’s a bit roomy and I don’t mind one bit! I love the looser fit for summer outfits. You can always add a belt if you want to cinch it in or tie a denim button around the waist. I’m barefoot since we are just outside our house but I recommend pairing with these vegan sandals or rose gold sandals.
A steal for $36 and super flattering. This strapless maxi dress is super easy to pull on and head out the door in. I love maxi dresses for summer because they keep your legs covered from the sun. They are comfortable, super breathable and easy to wear. This affordable dress comes in four colors. I’m wearing size XS and the strapless part fits perfectly. It’s elastic at the bust and at the waist, so it’ll provide a snug fit. The length is good on me and I can still wear low heels with it. There are pretty little eyelet details on this dress giving it a feminine touch, too.
Talk about an easy affordable summer outfit. I love pairing long sleeves with distressed shorts for summer. I like to keep my skin covered to prevent sun damage and it’s better to wear a lightweight long sleeve than a tank top. This floral print top is less than $25 and comes in two colors. I’m wearing size XS and it runs a little big overall.
One of my favorite staples for summer is a good pair of distressed shorts. These are less than $20 and I love the color and slight distressing. The fit predictor says my size is a 0, but it does run a dash big. Nothing too crazy but if you’re extra petite, it’s something to keep in mind. I do appreciate how they have a higher rise, though!
I love this casual-chic look. Sometimes the best way to add polish to any outfit is to throw on a blazer. I love linen blazers during the summer because of how breathable they are. This one also comes in black. I’m wearing size XS and I really appreciate the scrunched sleeves. It adds a casual look but still keeps the business casual vibe if you need to wear this to work.
Everyone needs a great layering piece and a good boyfriend t-shirt does the trick. Tuck it into bottoms, knot it or style casually with leggings. This comes in tons of colors and also has a pocket on the front. I got size XS.
