Summer weekend outfit essentials from Christopher and Banks

Summer weekend essential – a comfy knit dress

One Summer knit t shirt dress shown two ways.

Knit dresses are a must for dressing comfortably and with ease in the Summer! From jersey to terry knits, Christopher and Banks has you covered. Their Summer dresses can take you from shopping at your farmer’s market to a night out on the town!

Striped knit sleeveless dress for Summer.

So comfy in soft stretch fabric, this casual dress is accented with colorful stripes and a unique handkerchief hemline. Cut on a bias it is flattering for all shapes and sizes. Dress it up with a pair of cute wedges or down with a pair of flip flops.

If you are like me, you may be a bit uncomfortable wearing sleeveless dresses or tops. Adding a short sleeve, chambray button up over this dress adds the modesty I wanted and gives this dress a whole new look.

Another great cover-up option from Christopher and Banks are their dress topper cardigans. They are the perfect length and weight to wear over sleeveless or short sleeve dresses.

Summer weekend essentials – shorts, skimmers & capris

What's the difference between shorts, skimmers and capris?

So what’s the difference between Summer shorts, skimmers & capris?

You will always stay cool and comfortable in Summer shorts, skimmers and capris from Christopher and Banks. So, all of us know what a pair of shorts are, but what is the difference between skimmers & capris?

Skimmers or “pedal pushers” actually just “skim” along the bottom of your knees. Think of them as a “long” short, kinda like Bermudas but not. Great for wearing on all your Summer bike rides around your neighborhood!

Capris or “clam diggers” will either fall mid calf or just right about your ankle. Which makes total sense if you are going to be out digging clams!

Summer outfits are also all about FUN! Wearing bright colors and Summer inspired prints is what it’s all about. This pair of “weekend blue” super stretch skimmers are so easy to wear. They feature totally comfy fabric, a classic cut, and front and back pockets. Plus, they come in so many bright Summer colors from “spiced coral” to “lime soda.”

One other Summer essential I just have to have is a white denim jacket. This cute, stretchy white denim jacket layers beautifully over tops, tanks and dresses alike!

Summer is all about white jean shorts & comfy t-shirts

White denim shorts with this crossover texture knit top is not only cool but comfy!

This pair of modest everyday white denim shorts are designed with stretchy fabric and a stylish silhouette for a fantastic fit.
