Crisp, Classic Wardrobe Staples.

I keep a garment rack of clothing in my studio – whatever I’ve recently bought or received that I’m excited to wear at a given moment.  I glanced over the other day and realized the first half of the rack were all navy and white classics that will be easy to grab and wear when I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for.  Most of the items are on the rack below, and some are in my cart…


Notes and styling ideas below…

01. White eyelet maxi skirt.  The belt makes this feel so special and polished.  I love the idea of pairing with a simple navy, black, or white tee (also love J. Crew’s inexpensive ones) and some leather sandals.  (Look for less here and here.)

02. Petite Plume ticking stripe caftan.  I mean, iconic!  I imagine pairing with one of these Rue De Verneuil totes for a day at the beach club.

03. Doen Quinn dress.  Effortless, timeless, polished, easy.

04. J. Crew cap sleeve tee.  A new closet staple for me – fit is so chic and unexpected.  Great twist on a tank.

05. Linen vest.  I have this and love her so much.  Perfect with a white denim skirt or linen trousers.

06. Navy blazer.  I now have this investment jacket in my possession and I know I’ll treasure her forever.  Absolutely seasonless and ageless.  Get the look for less with this.

07. White linen maxi dress.  Swooning over this.  Look for less with this $69 steal.  BTW, both Quince and Gap have great linen collections at great prices to get the Posse look/vibe for less.

08. White denim shorts.  Already written a lot about styling these!

09. The most spectacular white dress ever.  If I were a bride, I would have splurged to wear this for my rehearsal dinner.

10. Dramatic one piece (wowza).

11. Easy breezy Jenni Kayne dress.

12. My VB vest, but now in white!

13. The Cosima in timeless blue and white stripe.

14. Cutest knotted tote!  I have this in the black.

15. Loewe sunnies and Chanel flats.  Can’t go wrong – immediate outfit-makers.

P.S. How do you stay organized?

P.P.S.  Getting ready for summer travel.

P.P.P.S.  The best undergarments.

  1. Can’t go wrong with any of these classic looks! Aaah the navy vest with the white skirt — so good.

    Have you heard of the brand Mother Oxford? They have these oversized long sleeve button down shirts. I know you’ve always had high praise for the SoldOut NYC one but I’ve been looking into Mother Oxford as an inexpensive alternative. They sell these leather cuffs too so that you can pull up the sleeves for that “effortless” casual-cool vibe.

    1. Oh my gosh Mia!! That cuff could be worn above the elbow to look like Cillian Murphy’s arm garters in Peaky Blinders! That’s such a yes for me
