Classic Summer Wardrobe Essentials From Talbots
Great Style Runs in the Family
Creating a wardrobe that transcends trends and seasons is always the goal. Timeless style is about investing in pieces that have both versatility and longevity to them. By following these simple tips, you can curate a wardrobe that will remain fashionable for years to come, while still expressing your unique personality and embracing a chic, timeless aesthetic.
1. Embrace Classic Silhouettes and Essential Basics:
Timeless style is built on a foundation of classic silhouettes and essential basics. Invest in pieces such as a well-tailored blazer, a crisp white button-down shirt, a little black dress, high-quality denim jeans, and a versatile trench coat. These items are the building blocks of a wardrobe that can be effortlessly mixed and matched to create several outfit combinations.
2. Prioritize Quality Over Quantity:
Instead of always giving in to fleeting trends and fast fashion, focus on quality garments that will last. Aim for classic fabrics like silk, cashmere, cotton, and wool, because they are not only comfortable, but they also stand the test of time when it comes to style. Quality pieces may come with a higher price tag, but they are worth the investment as they are less likely to go out of style, and they’ll last.
3. Reach for Neutral Colors and Timeless Prints:
Neutral colors can certainly help you create a timeless wardrobe. Shades like black, white, navy, gray, and beige are versatile and provide a clean canvas for accessorizing. When incorporating prints, opt for options such as stripes, polka dots, or houndstooth, as they have proven to withstand the ebb and flow of fashion trends.
Bow Linen Espadrille Wedges
Experience the perfect fusion of timeless elegance and modern flair with these bow linen espadrille wedges. Made with linen and featuring a delicate bow detail, these wedges effortlessly combine classic style with a contemporary twist. Pair them with a flowing maxi dress and a wide-brimmed hat for a casual daytime look, or elevate your outfit with tailored high-waisted trousers, a crisp white blouse, and a structured blazer for a polished and chic outfit. These versatile wedges can add a touch of sophistication and charm to any look, making them a closet staple. I find that these run a little big, and I’m wearing a size 9 but could use a 8.5.
Wide Leg White Crop Jeans in White
Elevate your denim collection by adding a pair of wide leg crop jeans. This pair of white jeans is perfect for summer with the adorable embroidery at the hem. These jeans are a versatile addition to any fashion-forward wardrobe. The wide leg silhouette and cropped length provide a modern edge, while the delicate embroidery adds a touch of summery charm. For a daytime look, pair these jeans with a striped top and sandals. For reference, we are both wearing a size 6R. My mom is 5’0” and I am 5’5” for height reference.
Embroidered Sleeve Top in White
This embroidered sleeve top is a perfect and versatile piece for summer. The delicate embroidery along the sleeves elevates the top for warmer months. For a casual and chic look, pair it with high-waisted jeans or shorts and sandals. For a workwear look, you could also tuck this top into a skirt and add a pair of pointed-toe heels or flats. To accessorize, consider adding delicate gold jewelry. This top can be styled several ways to last you all summer, and summers to come. I’m wearing a size small for reference, if you’re between sizes I recommend sizing down.
Fit and Flare Dress with Nautical Stripes
This fit and flare dress is a perfect addition to any summer wardrobe. The silhouette with tie belt flatters all body types, while the nautical stripes add a touch of classic sophistication. For a daytime outfit, pair it with white sneakers for a casual look. Or, style this dress in the evening by adding a pair of espadrille wedges and statement earrings. This dress also makes a great work-wear dress, too. And of course, the best feature is certainly the pockets! I’m wearing a size 6 and have plenty of room, so if between I suggest sizing down.
