When it comes to having a versatile wardrobe, we’re all about pieces that provide double-duty functionality. The more ways to wear them, the better. As the seasons begin to transition from spring into summer, we’re showing you our favorite staples and how to get the most out of them. Keep scrolling to learn a few of our favorite tips.

The piece: 

Colorful chinos

Why we love it: 

A bold pop of color goes a long way in instantly elevating any look.

For spring: 

To create a balanced look that doesn’t feel too heavy, we love contrasting deep shades with lighter tones. For this, all you’ll need is your favorite pair of slim-fit chinos and a classic polo in a brighter color. Add a sport coat on top, preferably one constructed from a breezy linen material, and you have a look that is ideal for work.

Into summer: 

There’s more to summer dressing than just peeling off the layers. It’s all about embracing fun patterns and colors, too. Instead of opting for a solid colored short-sleeve top, try something with a fun, all-over pattern. Then, complete the look with crisp sneakers for a casual-cool vibe. And don’t forget to bring your sunglasses.

The piece: 

A denim jacket

Why we love it: 

Denim is king, and this staple item gives us another way to wear it (aside from jeans).

For spring: 

Some days, you just want a laid-back outfit that still looks and feels put-together. We’ve got you covered. We suggest going the essentials route by pairing a solid-white tee with a comfortable pair of jogger pants that mimic the ease of sweats. Playing off the timeless vibe of your denim jacket, round out the ensemble with vintage-inspired sneakers for a smart finish.

Into summer: 

If there’s one thing we’re not holding back on this summer, it’s patterned shirts. We’re looking to old-school florals that are updated with a modern silhouette to help jazz up any outfit. But if you’re unsure about being able to pull off a bold shirt, your trusty denim jacket overtop and shorts in a darker shade really mellow out the look. Just be sure to lose the sneakers in favor of breathable sandals, and you have your go-to summer look. 

The piece: 

Striped T-shirt

Why we love it: 

There really is no wrong way to wear stripes. Plus, a striped tee can be worn with just about anything.

For spring: 

Between unexpected showers, windy days, and bursts of sunshine, spring weather can get really unpredictable. We recommend keeping a lightweight hooded jacket with waterproof construction on-hand to stay prepared for whatever is in the forecast. Keep with the casual theme by pairing your tee with light-wash denim and cool sneakers.

Into summer: 

Another reason to get excited about warmer weather is the fact that white shorts have the ability to instantly take a simple outfit to the next level. Not only do they give our favorite striped tee an attractive upgrade, but they also help dress up the look a touch. Polish off the look with a pair of boat shoes, sans socks, for a trendy finish.
