It’s summertime, and the living is easy. But how’s the getting dressed going? While the unofficial slogan of the muggy months might be “wear as little as possible (and bring a sweater for air conditioning)” adhering to that philosophy, without feeling underdressed, can be easier said than done. Shedding the layers that accompany us during colder months is liberating, but it can be intimidating too. With fewer items to fill out our looks, every piece really counts: Outfits that don’t lean on adornments or extras require the best possible basics to really shine. For summer, that means sleek dresses and skirts, simple lightweight trousers and tees, and the perfect easy accessories. Luckily, we minimalists are spoiled with choices this season, from long standing favorites like The Row and Jil Sander, as well as newer contemporary brands like St. Agni and Eterne. Scroll through for foolproof pieces that will keep you looking polished and staying cool this summer.
