4 Pieces for a Chic Summer Outfit

When the dog days of summer arrive it’s time to go back to the basics and break out the basics that’ll keep you comfy and cool. What are the pieces I keep going back to? Jean shorts, a white tee, comfortable sandals and simple accessories. Here are my favorites to pull together a chic summer outfit.


Tie a bandana around your pony or topknot to instantly elevate your look. It can double as a wipe for upper lip sweat (only kind of kidding). Always bring a hat to protect your precious face and comfortable sandals are an absolute must. I walked around Bermuda in these and they were great.

Jean Shorts

Always my summer favorite. You can’t go wrong with jean shorts. I love the raw hem on these, the slight distressing is just enough without looking sloppy.

White Tee

People seem to either love or hate this ripped white tee. I am obviously on the love end, but if the rips aren’t your thing, opt for a simple white tee and go for a slightly looser fit to keep cool.
