1) Chambray Dress

What’s easier than a chic, one-and-done dress, right?! This pretty, and super soft, chambray dress by Cloth & Stone is everything you want in a dress: comfy, stylish, lightweight and easy! I love the ruffle detailing around the flattering V-neckline. The tie waist helps cinch in the waist and creates more of a shape. The smocked cuffs make it easy to push up your sleeves (like I did above) and keep them in place. But you’ll be able to wear them down and long too, making it a perfect transition piece for fall. The length is also perfect (even when I lift my arms)…I’m 5’4” for reference.

Sneakers

To keep it casual, I styled the dress with a pair of classic white leather P448 sneakers. P448 is a wonderful brand for high-quality sneakers you’ll wear for years. They are comfy and very stylish. If you like the look of the Golden Goose sneakers, but want a more classic option, these are the perfect alternative at half the price. By the way, if you wanted to dress this up a bit, swap the sneakers for a pair of sandals instead.

2) White Top & Jeans

I mean…HOW CUTE is this white tee?? It’s soft and silky on your skin and fits and feels like a tee, but with elevated details like the crochet panels on the shoulders and the puff sleeves.  It is also roomy (not too tight), so it’s forgiving in the tummy area. For fall, all you have to do is throw on a lightweight jacket over this…and you’re ready to go!

Jeans

Aren’t these AG jeans SOOOO good?? They have a super flattering, slim fit, but more of a straight leg, perfect for those of you who love skinny jeans, but are looking for an updated denim silhouette. I love the medium-light wash for summer, but they’ll easily transition into fall too. These jeans run a little big, so I recommend sizing down. I’m usually a 26. I’m wearing a 25.

3) Shift Dress

This dress is a literal BREEZE. Throw on this swingy shift with some cute sandals and voila… you have the perfect summer (even fall) outfit! This Evereve closet staple has subtle puff sleeves and a roomier, forgiving fit. It’s perfect if you need to throw something on and be out the door in less than 5 minutes. If you want to create more of a waist, simply add a belt!

I styled it with a pair of cute black braided heels by Dolce Vita, but you could dress it down with the same white sneakers in looks #1 and #2. The heels have a manageable block heel (2.7”) that makes them easy to walk in and they’re very comfortable (for heels). For fall, swap the heels for booties and add a cropped leather jacket! The shoes run true to size (get your normal size) and the dress runs large (size down).

4) Black Top & Jeans

Another go-to for me that is SO easy for you to recreate is a black top and jeans. This black top by Roan & Ryan is my kind of elevated basic! It’s 100% cotton weave so it’s very lightweight and breathable. The v-neckline and body-skimming fit are very flattering. And I love the flutter sleeves! These cap sleeves are perfect if you want to soften broad shoulders. You can also close the button so the u-shape in the front becomes a keyhole, which is very sexy too. I styled it with the same AG jeans and Dolce Vita heels. But for fall, I’d wear a leather moto jacket or blazer over this, and swap the heels for some edgy booties. The top runs a little large, be sure to size down one size.

5) White Jeans & Button Down

It’s nice to mix things up in the fall and instead of always wearing dark colors like gray, black, brown, and navy…wear some white! These jeans by Good American run VERY small. Be sure to size up one full size. The wide palazzo leg is super flattering…like “make-your-legs-look-a-mile-long” flattering! I’m wearing pretty high platforms with these jeans. If you are shorter than 5’4″, you’ll have to hem these jeans. If you aren’t a fan of white jeans, this exact pair also come in a more traditional light wash denim too.

Button-Down Shirt

I styled the white jeans with this blue-striped Rails button-down. If you’ve been a subscriber for a while, you know how much I love Rails button-downs! I love how breathable and lightweight they are…perfect for more coverage without added heat. It’s meant to have a more relaxed, oversized fit, which is very “in” right now. But if you prefer a slightly more fitted look, size down. I completed the look with a pair of platform heels by Dolce Vita. In the fall, swap the platforms for booties.
