Lean in to chic basics with a twist for effortless summer style. I’m reaching for pieces with staying power and versatility that will feel at home in my closet for years to come but still feel very “now”. Your summer to-do list: embrace summer skin with a glistening highlight and glossy lips, try a new kind of spritz, soak it all in.
Rag & Bone Jeans / Refy Gloss Highlighter / Reformation Metallic Slingback / Steve Madden Ethos Sandal / Le Labo Calone 17 Candle / H&M Linen Short / Banana Republic Dolman Tunic / St. Germain Liqueur / Patrick Ta Major Volume Plumping Gloss / Club Monaco Smocked Jumpsuit
- If you loved DuWop Lip Venom, don’t sleep on the similarly-tingly Patrick Ta plumping glosses. The familiar buzz plumps up your lips and the cinnamon-y scent is a mood-booster.
- I’m never one to say no to a luxe candle, but this one from Le Labo might be my favourite. Perfect for a milestone moment (you can personalize the label in-store), Calone 17 is a complex and interesting fragrance – think aqua/marine notes, citrus and something else you can’t quite put your finger on – and the candle gives excellent cold throw. It feels like (fancy) summer.
- Size down in the Banana Republic tunic and you’ll still have an oversized look – I took a M. This versatile top can be worn open, buttoned, tied, tucked in or long – a true staple!
- Swap your Aperol for some floral St. Germain liqueur for a summery spritz that’s less technicolour but elevated in flavour.
