Ask Anne: Weekend Uniform Upgrades?
Anne Keane, who has spent the better part of her life—and most of her career—honing an effortless, how-does-she-do-it personal style, is our fashion strategy director. You can send her questions about everything from how to mix prints to upping your earring game at email@example.com.
Dear Anne, It’s hot. Like, really hot. All I want to do is hightail it out of town with my friends. But my fallback weekend uniform (cutoffs and old tanks) could use an update; I also want to buy smart so my purchases last longer than one season. Can you point me in the right direction? —Thea S.
Dear Thea, Lazy or action-packed, summer weekends call for easy, no-brainer pieces that’ll keep you feeling cool and pulled together. And many of the pieces you’ll swear by right now will also follow you into fall: cool riffs on classic shades, clean-slate sneakers that go everywhere, and capable denim to bridge the seasons.
