My style is simple, but that doesn’t mean I want to look generic. Especially during summer, I’m always on the lookout for easy-to-wear wardrobe basics with interesting details.
Style hunt: summer wardrobe basics (with interest)
I’ve been neck-deep in a wardrobe detox this week. (I’ll have more about that tomorrow.) While I’m not in the mood to shop for much at this point, I could still use a couple of travel-friendly summer tops (that aren’t plain tee shirts) to throw on with my jeans. While looking for those, I stumbled across a few things I thought you might like.
I love the ribbed fabric on this top, the set-in sleeves, and the crossover/split detail in the back (also great for ventilation!). I’ve ordered it to try, will report back. It’s also available in a bright blue and lavender, sizes XS-XL (00-16/18).
If you prefer a bit more coverage, here’s a 3/4 sleeve henley in the same fabric. Also 3 colors, sizes XS-XL. Amour Vert is a brand centered around sustainability…even the packaging is biodegradable or compostable! (And they plant a tree for every tee sold.)
Here’s a 100% cotton tee with a fun embroidered cherry pattern. Other patterns available too, sizes 2-22
Doesn’t get much easier than a tee shirt dress! This one in 100% cotton has a tiny ruffle detail at the sleeve. Several colors/patterns available, Regular and Tall sizes 2-22. (Reviewers say it runs large.)
Here’s a long linen shirt dress with 3/4 sleeves. You could wear this 3 ways: as shown, belted, or open as a lightweight duster.
A lightweight cardigan is one of my summer wardrobe essentials for cool evenings or air-conditioned interiors.
