The Blazer + Boyfriend Jean Update
Already have a blazer and boyfriend jeans in your closet? Quickly update your Casual Friday vibes or your weekend go-to by adding lace-up heels and a statement blouse (think: prints, peplum or embroidery details!).
Stylist Tip: “The season’s lace-up heel have a sportiness to them that pairs well with jeans. Instead of flats, try heels to add height and elongate your legs!” —Lauren G.
The Maxi Dress + Sandal Update
The nonchalance of the maxi dress makes it a staple in nearly every woman’s closet. But sometimes the allure of even our favorite items starts to dull after a season or two. Give your maxi and T-strap sandals some TLC by adding a utility jacket and flirty, wide-brimmed sunhat.
Stylist Tip: “Wear your jacket draped over your shoulders for instant, street-style appeal. Plus, when it starts to get warmer, you can still layer without overheating.” —Christina S.
The Striped Tee + Skirt Update
We could write a love song about striped T-shirts—they’re easy to wear, ultra-flattering and always add a hint of that coveted, effortless Parisian-girl style. Worn with a basic A-line skirt, you’ve already started with a solid foundation. Give it a quick makeover by adding an edgy cropped denim vest and a skinny scarf worn casually around your neck. Voila!
The White Denim + Basic Tank Update
When the weather warms up, bust out your white jeans! It’s easy to fall into the routine of adding a basic tank, but what if you feel like making a style-splash, pair them with a floral statement jacket and lace-up wedges. Don’t forget the oversized sunglasses for good measure.
Stylist Tip: “Neutral basics are the perfect canvas for adding in ultra-trendy pieces. It creates a clean, simple base so that patterns & prints can really pop!” —Emily D.
The Favorite Jeans + White Tee Update
It’s hard to imagine life without your favorite jeans and a classic white tee— who wants to mess with perfection? To give these closet favorites a simple update keep your look minimal and timeless and just add updated fashion sneakers and a lightweight trench.
Stylist Tip: “If you think it’s too hot for a trench coat, look for a sleeveless trench instead! It will give you the same great structure and is perfect for proportion play all season.” —Miranda F.
