Warm Weather Wardrobe Essentials: Casual

Warm weather often means lots of opportunities to be outside – and then inside – and then outside again. What pieces do you need to get from a barbeque to a movie to a night of mini-golf or drinks at an outdoor café?
If you missed out Warm Weather Essentials for Work and After 5, be sure to check them out. We’d love to hear from you – let us know how our first week went, via comments here or on our social pages. See you next week!

Trying to find the right tank top isn’t always easy. DemyLee is a newer line we love, making beautiful cashmere sweaters and the softest, luxurious tee’s and tanks that are not too fitted, and not oversized. This tank has just the right size neckline and armholes, so you don’t have to worry about your bra showing.

We all need a sexy, yet casual tank for the warmer months. Here it is. A racerback is a great trick to elongate arms and make your shoulders look toned. The looser fit is polished and oh, so flattering to wear with any style pants, shorts, or skirt.

The linen fabric of this J.Crew tee gives a basic tee a not-so-basic finish that drapes beautifully so it doesn’t cling. Perfect for warm weather. J. Crew does this great fabric in a lot of styles, so try the tank top and v-neck tee, too. It’s a great staple in your wardrobe.

Once it gets warm out, we are constantly in & out of air conditioning. We love this semi-sheer sweater in an easy drapey silhouette. The ribbing details add some unique interest to a versatile piece that you can throw on with anything.

James Perse does casual comfort to perfection – especially this hoodie. Can’t you see yourself on the beach watching the sunset (with or without a drink) in this one? We love that it’s got an easy silhouette without being oversized or sloppy. The fabric is extremely soft and all the colors are perfectly broken in.

These Citizens of Humanity boyfriend jeans are a perfect womanly fit, so they’re not too over-sized and will fit most body types. The denim is stretchy with an ideal broken-in wash (distressed, but not too much). Like most boyfriend jeans, they do run a bit big. If you are petite, you may want to size down. We also like to roll the hem up for a playful finish.

If you’re curvier, you will love CJ by Cookie Johnson’s boyfriend jeans. An easier fit, with a lot of stretch, you may still want to order down a size – especially if you are shorter. This season, we’re seeing a lot of distressing and rips to jeans. This pair has just enough to be stylish, but not over the top. They work with everything from a white tee and slip-on sneakers to a sleeveless blouse and heeled sandals.

Shorts that are clean, conceal just the right parts of the thigh and a great fit – from Vince, of course. Lots of colors to choose from, in addition to this, from basic to pop color. Perfect for any weekend, lunching with friends or doing some window shopping. If you work in a casual work environment, pair these with a linen button-down shirt and blazer for a great Friday look.

On a grey summer day, you just want to reach for an easy pair of pants that you don’t have to worry about. Aren’t these just perfect? They are stylish with a cute pleat detail at the knee, but made of a lightweight twill with an easy drawstring waist, and cropped leg that we think looks great cuffed.

NYDJ - Clarissa Skinny Ankle Jeans
Skinny ankle length jeans are an easy go-to in the summer, since they give a finished look to a loose top or tee, and look great with sandals and flats. This one from NYDJ, especially in crisp white, is sure to please. We generally suggest sizing down in NYDJ, since it has a more generous fit and higher rise, but you should be able to take your normal size in this style, as it is a slimmer silhouette.

Petit Bateau is known for their timeless, luxury basics, and this skirt certainly is an example of that. The soft cotton has a really nice weight to it, while the flat pleats are super flattering - pair it with a denim shirt. You will love it once you get it on. Unless you are 5’9” and an XS, this will be a bit longer on you, too, which we think looks even better.

So comfy, yet so flattering, this skirt from James Perse is a staple for your summer essentials. It’s a very stretchy fabric that easily moves with you. The tie at the waist not only makes this skirt adjustable, but it adds a detail that conceals any, shall we say, belly imperfections.

Nic + Zoe’s relaxed fit, combined with this easy maxi length, is the right mix for a perfect casual day. Don’t be afraid of the stripe! The space dye quality of the knit breaks it up, so it’s beautifully distracting – drawing attention in just the right way. And it’s fully lined, which helps keep a smooth silhouette.

Some of the highlights of this modern fitting linen dress are the higher scoop neck and 2-piece look. Both work to keep all the right things hidden, while the peplum waist and bias cut of the skirt accentuate the waist and flatter the lower half.

If you are looking for something a little more casual and contemporary, this Splendid dress is a great pick. On a day when you need to throw something on and run out the door, you’ll be happy to have it. This dress also has a faux 2-piece look to it that breaks up the silhouette and allows it to hang easily away from the body. A belt will help show off your waist.

An oh-so flattering dress that will take you from a day of errands to a casual evening out without missing a beat. You can wear a racerback bra with this, and the waist detailing is very slimming. We love this summery print, but it’s also available in solid black. A great fit for many sizes that comes in Petite, too.

Vince does casual fashion like no other, and this timeless maxi dress is no exception. We love this ocean blue, but black always works, too. A racerback is very flattering to the arms and shoulders, and the a-line silhouette floats around your body without clinging. Wear it as is, or add a belt if you’re curvier to accentuate your waist.

Slip-on sneakers are back, and we are delighted. A stylish alternative to your basic sneaker, we think this one from Vince is ideal. The white sole and woven cotton upper keep these light and playful. We truly can’t pick a favorite color, though we think the white is pretty great.

We love that the pattern is grounded in neutral colors, so you can easily wear it with blacks, whites, and tans while keeping color around your face.

We could not pass up the opportunity to show you this scarf from All Saints. Known for an edgy sophistication and clean aesthetic, they often take photographs and graphics and digitally print them on to scarves. "IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD" printed on your scarf is a great message that you may choose to keep to yourself, or share with others - it just depends how you wear it. Take a look at the additional pictures on the AllSaints page (click on the "shop it" button to get there) and you'll see, once you wrap it around your neck, the words disappear and you just are left with a scarf of beautiful color.
