The Anatomy of a Casual Outfit: Ladies’ Warm Weather Addition

Everyone loves the more relaxing feel of summertime that starts after Memorial Day. Some of us have half-day Fridays, and we all do everything we can to maximize the weekend. And we all want to be comfortable, yet stylish, while we’re doing it. So today, we wrap up our week of outfit anatomy with 2 casual outfits that lay out all the core essentials for our lazy days of summer (even if they’re not so lazy).
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed the anatomy of our work or after 5 outfits, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

The Top (The Core Piece of the Outfit). We never have a hard time finding an item from Vince that becomes a must-have. This easy fitting tee has the prettiest ombré effect in a jersey fabric that is as soft and high quality as we’ve come to expect from Vince. The green/white combination is so fresh and stylish, though you can choose a pink or a blue combination through the ‘shop it’ button, as well. The overall effect is relaxed and stylishly modern, with a casual feel that is just a touch more polished than your average tee.

The Bottom. Joie is another of our favorite contemporary brands because they create styles in fits that work on all body types with an ease and modern sensibility that work for ladies of all ages who appreciate great style and nice quality. So it’s no surprise that Joie’s wide leg linen pants look so darn good with the Vince tee we’re featuring in this outfit. The drawstring and mid-rise is so comfortable and slimming, nicely balancing the wide leg of the pants. The smoky quartz color is not quite white, and plays with all the colors of the tee perfectly. But of course, in such a great summer neutral, you’ll wear these with all your favorite tees and tanks this Summer.

The Easy Layer. Even in the heat of summer, sometimes we need a layer. And this lightweight slub knit from Dolan Left Coast is a versatile winner. In Regular and Petite, in XXS-XL the modern fit and loose styling works over the relaxed shape of the tee in this outfit. The drawstring waist provides as much waist definition as you like, whether you wear it closed (shown) or open by pulling the drawstring as much as you like (click through the ‘shop it’ button to see what we mean in the additional 3rd image). The fabric is ideal for summertime, providing a bit of coverage and a whole lot of style. The creamy white perfectly compliments the whites and creams in the linen pants and tee.

The Stylish Accessory. Accenting the relaxed style and neutral earth tones of this outfit with this bohemian style long pendant necklace is just good sense. The wood and brass combination is so unique, and the longer length drops past your chest so it’s flattering no matter what size you are. It’s just a great finishing touch, and certainly a conversation piece. You’ll love it with a maxidress, a simple white tee, or a classic button down, too.

The Shoes. Slip on a simple pair of leather sandals in a versatile luggage brown to complete this breezy outfit. It won’t get easier or more comfortable than these Madewell slides. The rubber sole – and great price – are sure to win you over. If you prefer a closed shoe, these leather slip-on espadrilles from Soludos are the same color and can be worn with shorts, dresses and cropped pants, too – just like the sandals.

The Romper (The Core Piece of the Outfit). Instead of putting together a pair of shorts with a tank, make it easy on yourself and go with this adorable, and so comfortable RAILS romper. Jumpsuits have become a staple in women’s fashion and it’s easy to see why once you put this chambray dream on. The fabric is lyocell, which has wonderful drape and the softest hand, yet presents a polished look, so you can go from the park to brunch with ease in this one. The contemporary fit is relaxed, just like RAILS button down shirts (and we are big fans of those, too). Since RAILS is known for their great shirts, it’s no surprise that the button placement on this romper is perfect – no gapping at the chest, even if you are curvier. The model is wearing it buttoned up, but we like to leave the first couple buttons unbuttoned. Free People has a great long-sleeve version that is equally Summer ready.

The Shoes. Fringe is a stylish accent that is popping up everywhere and will carry into Fall. Kate Spade’s interpretation on these neutral sandals is ladylike and not over-the-top “fashionista” if you know what we mean. They look great with the featured romper in this outfit and look equally cool with rolled up boyfriend jeans, shorts, and skirts.

The Stylish Accessory. Continue the boho feel with this Rebecca Minkoff bangle. Not only is the wide shape a great touch for the sleeveless romper in this outfit, the abstract leaf cut-outs create a look of movement that ever-so-subtly plays up the fringe in the sandals. But even without the sandals, this is a bracelet that just pops any outfit for Summer, and we love a statement cuff for all those arm-baring warm weather looks.

The Finishing Touch Accessory. It’s always nice to have your hands free, for carrying that ice coffee or grabbing your phone. So finish this neutral look off with a pop of soft color in your crossbody handbag. The blushy pink is a sophisticated shade and really versatile, so you’ll get plenty of use of it throughout the summer. The simple small bucket design is weekend perfect - large enough to put in your essentials, like your sunglasses, wallet, and phone, but light and easy. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see it on the model for size perspective – we think you’ll agree. If you prefer a neutral, the mixed materials of this Michael Kors bag gives you versatility and summer style, also in an updated bucket bag shape.
