Footloose and Fancy Free
As everyday routines have changed over the past few months, we’ve reached into our closets for comfort and versatility — all while awaiting summer and that magical, nostalgic energy that comes with it. As temperatures rise, a revived yet updated niche of relaxed luxury clothing and wardrobe styling has surfaced. We want to feel put together — but desire a wardrobe that can accommodate the spontaneity of schedule and longer days that the summer months bring.
The coast lends itself to a relaxed way of life, which naturally encourages comfortable and lightweight fabrics that we can gently let the day evolve in. From a morning coffee and beach walk to impromptu lunch plans and dinner on the patio, the key to relaxed style is classic mix-and-match pieces that have an understated tone of beauty and simplicity. With a wardrobe full of staples like neutral linens and soft cottons, a few statement dresses, interesting shoes and memorable bags, you can instantly personalize your look and stay on trend.
Loose-fitting jeans, baggy style shorts and cropped linen pants are all in style — especially when paired with a tailored blouse or a simple, minimal tank top.
Kimono layers over simple tanks are sticking around throughout the season. Two-piece matching sets are back for good, so fi nd a color that flatters your skin tone or rely on a classic all-white pairing. Woven raffi a and structured straw bags are also ever-present in this season’s fashion, with a bent toward natural-dyed materials that bring rich, uncomplicated doses of color to play. Resort-style maxi dresses are a go-to eveningwear style, with an emphasis on fun, bold and colorful prints that strike the perfect balance between comfort and statement.
