These 10 Under-$40 Basics Have So Much Replay Value—Here's the Evidence
When you need something a little more substantial than a T-shirt, try a lightweight knit. It's a little more polished, but the biggest relief is that you don't have to stress as much about finding the right bra. This one from Who What Wear's summer collection features a trendy ruffle sleeve that feels more intentional.
I know, I know—Bermuda shorts aren't for everyone, but as a professed shorts hater myself, these are leagues above what you're used to. The voluminous shape and longer length are flattering on a diverse range of body types, and they definitely feel more grown-up than a pair of denim cutoffs.
On the subject of trendy basics, we're very much into this blouse. With a smocked pouf sleeve, it's a little more eye-catching than a plain white tee. Layer it underneath a vest or wear it with shorts, and you have an elevated summer look.
Without fail, by the end of summer, my midi dresses are, by far, my most-worn items. Even as a fashion editor, I appreciate when an outfit basically styles itself, and in this case, all you need are a few simple accessories (I advocate for hoops) and a cool pair of sneakers or sandals.
Nope, high-waisted pants aren't going anywhere, and we can't stop wearing this cropped paperbag version that feels super sophisticated.
