Summer Styling Made Easy: Wear What You Already Own

Bet you never thought you’d hear us say this, but… stop shopping! We’re all about reworking, restyling, and reimagining wardrobe pieces and love finding new and exciting ways to switch up our favorite looks. Keep reading for some of our tips on wearing one thing, two ways.

Of course, white button-ups are our go-to for the office, but they’re even cuter on the weekends. Pair your blouse with casual pants or a pair of denim shorts to dress down the look. You can also tie it in a knot or unbutton it for a more flowy vibe. You can even throw it on as a cover up at the beach. The possibilities are endless!

Few accessories are as versatile as simple, chic sneakers. The right pair can dress up a casual outfit, and dress down a more formal one. If you’re headed out to lunch, a trip to the farmers’ market, or a summer barbecue, throw on some sneakers with a pair of fitted shorts and a sleep button up. If you’re going between meetings or stopping by the office, dress down your typical suit-look by wearing sneakers instead of loafers. We know you’ll be the coolest guy at the office!

Scarves aren’t just a winter accessory! They’re the perfect addition for those breezy summer nights when you don’t want to bring a heavy jacket or sweater. They can also provide some much needed pops of colors or pattern to an otherwise plain outfit. And during the day? Wrap it around your waist for the perfect poolside sarong or beachy cover up.

You can never go wrong with a simple T. Whether you’re heading out to a lunch meeting or stopping by a friend’s house, a t-shirt is always the way to go. Pair it with a blazer to make it more work-appropriate, or with jeans or shorts for a more casual style.

Joggers might just be the most adaptable (and comfortable) item of clothing around. For relaxed WFH days or running errands, pair joggers with sneakers and a sweater for a chic, yet comfortable look. If you want to dress them up a little, ladies – add heels and a leather jacket, and guys – add some high-end sneakers and a button-up.
