There are some looks that stop you in your tracks when you see them on your Instagram feed/Pinterest page/email inbox, and for me, like this one of @leiasfez. It’s a perfect example of an outfit adding up to so much more than it’s individual parts. She looks cool and crisp, but still put together.
The first step: a perfectly structured but still slightly oversized white shirt, which is the only thing I’ve wanted to wear lately anyways. As always, I found what I was looking for at Everlane. Their Relaxed Poplin shirt nails the casual chic vibe in the picture. Their Japanese Oxford strikes the same balance, but in a slightly looser fit. If those feel a little too stuffy, Grayson’s white shirts are a little more casual.
We all love white jeans. They’re refreshing and summery. And there’s nothing cooler or cleaner than an all-white ensemble, even after Labor Day. The perfect white jean comes down to personal preference. High-waisted and skinny? This pair from Everlane or splurge on these Citizens. Cropped with a mini flare? You’ll love this AYR pair. Maybe you’re more into boyfriend jeans, so you should buy this relaxed Club Monaco crop.
Have you ever seen a black flip-flop look this good? It’s practically high-fashion. The simplicity of the thin strap makes the shoe feel high-brow instead of sloppy, similar to the strappy sandals we’ve seen at The Row the past season. You can get the look for yourself with these Havianas, but you could also dress it up with a black leather sandal like these from Bella Vita. And if you really want to splurge, there’s always Gucci.
Finally, tie it all together with an updated version of the lady-who-lunches bag. That means a top handle, and a little bit of structure. This Tory Burch small satchel certainly does the job. This monogrammed bag from Mark and Graham is a little bit slouchier, but the bamboo handles are a nice touch. Finally, a used Birkin bag, because a girl can dream.
