The Look for Less: Stylish Basics for Summer

Jun 27, 2017

Split Sleeve Tops Kobi Halperin Split Sleeve Blouse ($298) // Banana Republic Split Sleeve Top ($98)

Professional, yet vented for the summer heat.  Try them with a printed pencil.

Cross Strap Sandal Cole Haan Anica Sandal ($130) // Topshop Cross Strap Sandal ($35)

A simple, stylish option for summer.

Navy Sheath Reiss Navy Sheath ($340) // T Tahari Sheath Dress ($98)

The ‘I Have Nothing to Wear’ go to work dress.

Tassel Crossbody Bag Gucci Soho Disco Bag ($980) // Phase 3 Tassel Crossbody ($55)

I’m not much for designer bags, but this one keeps drawing my eye.

    I love the Topshop slides, but like Anna said, they can go quickly from chic to grandpa’s puttering around the yard shoes. Really depends on the color of the shoes and the outfit…not going to pair them with corduroys and flannel anytime soon.

    The gold color is fantastic, but unfortunately it looks like it’s sold out in most sizes 🙁

    FYI, not sure if you have tried on the TopShop slides. I got them, as did a friend, and within 10 minutes of wearing them around they house we both had horrible blisters and rubbing. Back they went and I was super sad.

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
