Outfit 1

High Contrast, Low Effort

Wearing knits in the summer is a power move—and the Carol dress ($131.25 $295), made from breathable 365Knit, allows you to achieve the look without overheating. I love how it combines picnic-blanket charm with a sophisticated, below-the-knee silhouette. Here, Emma styled it with a simple black cardigan and Vagabond sandals.

Outfit 2

Undercover Loungewear

I’ll let you in on a little secret: This outfit is basically loungewear. But thanks to a few elevated touches—the Cookie cardigan’s ($153.75 $295) contrast stitching, layered necklaces ($127.50 $170), crisp pleats in my trousers—it’s fit for the office, a restaurant, or wherever else I may find myself on a random Tuesday.

Outfit 3

A Great Investment

This is a prime example of an all-neutral outfit that’s decidedly non-boring. The Melina vest ($168.75 $225) does a lot of the heavy lifting by introducing texture and contrast, while the camel-colored Horton pants ($221.25 $295) add (visual) warmth to the look. As we head into fall and winter, you can toss the Kati blazer ($236.25 $535) on top of the Melina vest, or layer the Axam turtleneck ($67.50 $90) underneath.

Outfit 4

Sporty Meets Sleek

One of the style rules I try to follow is embrace asymmetry, because my favorite outfits combine pieces with contrasting aesthetics. For this look, I paired the sporty, preppy Leo pullover ($131.25 $175) with the sleek and glamorous Orchard skirt ($251.25 $335) to create a balanced outfit that I could wear pretty much anywhere.

Outfit 5

Top-Notch Texture

This outfit embodies the best parts of the “quiet luxury” trend: ultra high-quality pieces, timeless shapes, and gorgeous textures. The pairing of the Axam turtleneck ($116.25 $155) in kaleidoscope print with the Porter jacket ($468.75 $625) in Interweave is a gorgeously subtle take on pattern-mixing, and the saddle-colored Kick Flare Foster pants ($191.25 $255) and red flats pull the palette together.

Outfit 6

Jeans and a T-Shirt

Jeans and a T-shirt is a classic outfit for a reason: It’s easy, comfortable, versatile, and always in style. One of my most-worn weekend outfits features the Daria jeans ($176.25 $235) and Leslie T-shirt ($71.25 $95), styled with the ultra-chic Ness jacket ($318.75 $425), comfy sandals (these are Havaianas), and hoop earrings ($60 $80).

Outfit 7

The Subtle Statement

What I love about this look is that it’s memorable without being loud. The Annika tee ($168.75 $225) in borough print—inspired by vintage maps of NYC—is an instant conversation-starter, and with a simple black slip skirt and the camel Yiyan blazer ($371.25 $495), it’s elegance, epitomized.

Outfit 8

Blazing New Trails

This look is potentially a controversial one, but I love it, so I’m sharing it (again). Pictured: the Moreland blazer ($127.50 $335) in light orchid (worn as a shirt), chocolate brown Banana Republic corduroys I got at Buffalo Exchange, and the shoes I wore for my wedding—quite the mixed bag! What I like about this outfit is that the silhouettes themselves are quite simple, but the unusual color combination makes the whole ensemble stand out.

Outfit 9

The Secret T-Shirt

It’s true: The Tonya top ($191.25 $255) feels like wearing your softest T-shirt. But you’d never know that by looking at it, since it’s made from an innovative Japanese cotton that looks like crisp poplin despite being super soft and stretchy. Pair it with another secretly lounge-worthy favorite—the Colby pant ($90 $235)—for the easiest lazy-day outfit.

Outfit 10

Business Meets Casual

If you’re going somewhere and you’re not quite sure what the vibe will be, jeans + blazer + nice shoes is a safe bet outfit-wise. I rely on this combination often and play with different colors and blazer shapes to keep it feeling fresh. Here’s one of my recent favorites: the Twidwell blazer ($168.75 $375) (which is super lightweight and great for summer) + the Jett tank ($37.50 $70) + blue jeans + white shoes. And don’t forget to tie it together with jewelry!

Outfit 11

Simply Stylish

This look proves that you don’t need endless layers or overly complicated accessories to be stylish. Simple silhouettes like a button-down shirt and a pencil skirt take on a luxurious look when made in fabrics like silk charmeuse ($146.25 $275) and breathable plaid wool suiting ($105 $235). Just add patent leather loafers, and you’re ready to walk out the door.

Outfit 12

Two Dresses Are Better Than One

The Pepper dress ($243.75 $325) is gorgeous on its own—elegant and meticulously cut to fall just right—but I can’t stop wearing it as a trench-style layer. The combination of the dramatic length and casual chambray fabric is unexpected and makes the dress feel like a statement piece. Here, I wore it with the Maaza ($176.25 $235)—a classic shift dress—and the Lana boots ($318.75 $425), but I’ve also been styling it with my Milo jeans ($255) and Lisey cami ($131.25 $175).
