You love a clean line. You don’t do color. You tend toward restraint, lest you look like you’re trying too hard. You are the consummate minimalist. But just because you subscribe to a less-is-more aesthetic doesn’t mean that you’re not refreshing your wardrobe for the warmer months like everyone else—in fact, it’s your überdiscerning taste that makes this endeavor even more significant. Here, we’ve rounded up the style upgrades that meet your standards.

For the Office

Swap your trusty black blazer for something lighter—ideally in a breathable natural material that will keep you cool in the face of soaring temperatures, the beating sun, and double-digit humidity. Supplement with a sleek column skirt, modern updates on men’s shirting, and versatile black accessories.

For the Beach

A no-frills bikini in a chic shade of brown that’s so dark, it passes for black. Elevated basics. Simple, flowy sundresses that moonlight as cover-ups. Plus, of-the-moment accessories—a raffia bucket hat, leather flip-flops, oval sunglasses—that keep it all feeling effortlessly cool.

For Nights Out

There’s no better time to wear an open-back top or a silky, stealth-sexy slip dress than on a balmy summer evening when the air itself seems to be humming with possibility. The only other thing you need is a chic sling bag that goes wherever you do.

For Weekends

Whether the day ahead involves a stacked lineup of errands, a leisurely lunch with friends, or an afternoon of gallery or boutique hopping, a sleek tank and coordinating bottoms is a foolproof choice. Available in different silhouettes (scoop, halter, one-shoulder) and textures (modal, silk, bouclé), these chic separates slot together in near-endless combinations.

The Finishing Touches

A sleek piece of jewelry is to an already-chic outfit what a blue-cheese-stuffed olive is to a vodka martini: the detail that makes it.
