Summer days are longer—but let's be honest, they're never long enough. Here's a simple strategy to save you time: stock your closet with a few foundational outfits that can adapt to any plans. It's amazing how one more (or less) layer can transform your whole look. Our personal stylists are experts at low-effort outfit changes. Here are a few of their favorites.
Beach to barbecue
Your swimwear is the star of this show. For maximum versatility, pick a pair of shorts that can adapt to your on-land plans. Go for a sophisticated color and a clean, close fit. A lightweight jacket, T-shirt and sneakers will take you comfortably into the evening—opt for all white to make a summery statement.
Park to pub
The perfect picnic outfit is comfortable but can be dressed up a bit for later. A classic polo and tailored shorts lay the foundation, leveling up your casual look without sacrificing the feel-good factor.
Farmers' market to first date
Why "run" errands when you can take a leisurely stroll
instead? Do it in style, with rich, earthy hues and flattering fits. Sandals
and a logo tote nail the downtime vibe, and a slouchy statement sweater pulls the
whole look together.
