Mod-biscotti. I buy fewer pieces but spend a bit more. That way when I've literally got 30 seconds to choose I know what I'm wearing fits well and looks good.
I also live in Johnny Was shirts in summer. They cost a lot if you buy them here but if you get on sale on Amazon they can be had for great prices. Some I've worn all summer for 3 or 4 years now and they still look new.
Bohemian Traders is also worth looking at (online). They do great tops for summer.

My usual is sleeveless tops that aren't too clingy around the gut area, teamed with shorts.
I have one denim skirt that I'll wear. I also have a pair of beachy casual khaki pants that I'll wear a fair bit.
One printed dress that I'd consider 'smart casual'.
A pair of denim drop crotch overalls. Ridiculously comfortable.
I would like to nab one or two casual dresses and maybe another casual skirt, but my body shape (apple) means these items don't always suit me and it usually takes a lot of shopping to find something just right. I've been around long enough to know what suits me and what doesn't, so I'm a bit fussier with what I'll buy now.

I live in maxi dresses and long skirts with singlets. I'm tall, transparently white, not a huge fan of my legs but pretty happy with my arms and shoulders. I have a tummy as well and find maxi dresses in particular so flattering. If I get the gradual tan right, I'll wear a khaki skirt or shorts with a t shirt. But yeah, mostly long and flowy on the bottom and reasonably fitted and sleeveless on the top.

Fellow ghost here. I hate summer in general. I can't stand being hot.
I'm usually about comfort. Tshirts and shorts. I've got quite a nice collection of dresses and a few nice tops from Review. Only one maxi dress unfortunately. Also, all the light weight clothes that I have been gifted by family from when they've travelled to Thailand, Bali, etc. Life savers.

Summer. What will you be wearing?
I am tall and very fair skinned. I only ever show my legs from the knee down as my thighs are not my redeeming feature at all. Pretty happy with the rest of me. Therefore shorts are not a summer option. I mainly wear dresses (I own an obscene amount of them π±). They are knee, just below knee and ankle length. Everything is a-line or babydoll style. Back to my thighs - they are disproportionate to my body so fitted dresses catch on them and I can't stand it. No straight dresses for me.
I also wear skirts and singlet tops.
I love leggings and long tops so they will come out occasionally but generally in qld it's too hot.

teenie where do you buy your dresses from? A-line and baby doll styles suit me, but a lot of the dresses around at the moment seem to cinch in at the waist area and this is not a good look for me.

I've been shopping trying to find shirts/singlets that aren't tight fitting around the stomach, and not having much luck unfortunately.
I also avoid spaghetti straps because I have quite big shoulders and tye just look gross.
Summer for me is usually leggings and longer tops, or maxi dresses.
I hate summer.
