Who what wear article, “Summer Staples”

We finally have a little sun in Seattle, and I’m so excited to wear some of my new spring and summer outfits! A few weeks ago, my friend Bobby Schuessler from the publication Who What Wear asked me about my favorite summer staples in my wardrobe. I made a list of 6 go-to items, which I’ve listed below, including outfit inspiration and product details. Browse through the list; you might find something you’ll love wearing this season. You can check out the full Who What Wear article here.

1. White Dress

A white dress is one of my go-to summer staples. It’s a classic color that’s versatile and easy to dress up or down. I’ve included a few options below that are versatile and current for the summer season.

2. Linen Trousers

When I think of summer outfits, I think of wearing anything made from linen. Below, I’m wearing linen blend trousers and a blazer. Try swapping the blazer for a vest or a casual polo shirt for a warm-weather outfit.

Linen Pant Inspiration

Stripe linen pants are a summer staple that’s trending. They’re casual, breezy, and comfortable to wear at home and on vacation. Add a casual jacket and a t-shirt, and finish the look with cognac-colored accessories.
