Light Wash Denim

Summer Style Basics: Light Wash Denim

For summer denim, a lighter wash and distressed finish are key, but the silhouette is totally up to you! Wear with a loose, silky, feminine top with minimalist details. I love tasseled drawstrings, interesting stitching, or an unexpected pleat.

 

Stretch Knit Romper

This is literally the easiest outfit ever. Be sure to pick a style with a unique construction. This one has a wrapped front, keyhole back, and delicate front strap. When summer starts to wind down, top off a casual romper with your favorite denim jacket.
 

Relaxed-Fit Tee

Finding the perfect-fitting tee is a mission of mine, and a soft, relaxed style is definitely a summer staple. Pair a subtly embellished tee– with contrasting trim, raw edges, or a unique hemline– with well-loved jeans for an effortless, put-together style.
