One Piece, Three Ways:
The Classic White Tee

A standard white tee is self-explanatory: Wear it with anything, anywhere. This one, however, while just as wearable, is actually a study in contrast. The voluminous puff-shoulder sleeves are free-wheeling; the classic crewneck is restrained; the flattering body is tailored without being too trim. Meanwhile, the same cotton-linen—that makes an easy T-shirt such a closet staple in the first place—ties it all together for whatever is on the agenda.

Uptown Brunch

Swingy denim (these pleated culottes have a distinctly tailored feel) + a crisp top is a forever reliable warm-weather weekend team. The finishing touches—printed mules, color-blocked bucket bag, and artful hoops—carry you to brunch, Museum Row, and beyond.

Beachside BBQ

Summer and showstopping floral prints just go together. Scattered with vibrant hibiscus blooms and paired with minimal accessories, like slinky wraparound sandals, a straw circle bag, and subtle yellow-gold jewelry, the skirt’s free-spirited vibe takes the spotlight.

Meetings To Martinis

Billowy palazzo party below and prim body-skimming business up top. High-waisted trousers and a tucked-in blouse take you from a day at the office to a night on the town in two easy steps: 1) a shoe change and 2) a swipe of lipstick.
