With just 19 days to go before the first official day of summer, it’s time to start thinking about a go-to uniform that will carry you through the warmer months. Today we’re highlighting classic pieces that are perfect for any casual outing — from a morning at the farmer’s market to a leisurely brunch with friends. We’ve picked out pieces from Shopilly brands to fit every budget, so happy shopping!
White v-neck tee
Sometimes it feels like we’re on a never-ending search for the perfect white v-neck tee, but these come pretty darn close. At just $3.80 per shirt (no, that’s not a typo!), the Favorite V-Neck Tee from Forever 21 is a steal. If you like your tees a little on the longer side, try the Washed V-Neck Tee Shirt, 2 for $24.00 at Urban Outfitters. We also love the comfy jersey fabric of the Very Light Jersey V-Neck Top, which is $48.00 at Splendid.
Boyfriend jeans are great for achieving a relaxed but polished look, especially when cuffed at the bottom. The most casual jean of our picks is the Deconstructed Sexy Boyfriend Jean, on sale for $55.96 at Gap. It has a relaxed fit and just a few distressed accents for character. If you’re looking for a slimmer jean, try the Sienna Tomboy Crop, $99.00 at Lucky Brand, or the Rivet & Thread Selvedge Boy Jean, $228.00 at Madewell.
Strappy leather sandals
After months cramped up in closed-toe shoes, it’s time to let your feet enjoy the summer air in a pair of strappy sandals! The Merona Kiana Sandal, $19.99 at Target, has a cushioned insole and comes in cognac or black. The beautifully-made Congo Sandal, $68.00 at Splendid, features color blocking and a zipper closure at the heel for easy on-and-off. If it’s a gladiator-inspired sandal you seek, try the Joie Positano, which is made in Italy and comes in three colors. You can get it Zappos for $145.00.
You never know when your casual outing will turn into an adventure, so carry a roomy tote to hold all of your necessities. We love the affordable Mossimo Supply Co. Tote Handbag in a summery coral shade. You can get it for $29.99 at Target. The sturdy Kennedy Canvas Tote, $79.50 at Banana Republic, comes in two fun prints and is the roomiest tote of the bunch. For a more luxurious look, check out the Madison East/West Tote in Saffiano Leather. It’s available in six beautiful shades and sells for $298.00 at Coach.
