Closet Combinations to Try Now
Whether the issue is explaining string theory or getting a decent rise on a soufflé, problem solving is all about breaking a challenge into manageable pieces. To make dressing in the month that comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb the easiest problem you’ll solve all spring, we put together six warm-weather combinations—each broken down into its essential parts—that come together in minutes.
Short Denim + High Volume
When denim cutoffs go short-short, balance their brevity with a high-volume shirt with feminine folds, ruffles, and ribbons.
Suit + Sneakers
The outfit otherwise known as GP’s office uniform: an extra-long blazer with cropped wide-leg culottes, plus sneakers with plenty of sole.
Neon + Navy
Neutralize highlighter hues by teaming them up with classic navy and a touch of subtle sparkle—the look is polished but still playful, and less all-out ’80s.
Shirtdress + Strappy Sandals
This season’s shirtdresses reimagine the silhouette by shifting hemlines and playing with proportion. Paired with strappy sandals, the result is perfect for handling a heat wave.
Bermuda Shorts + Kitten Heels
Color-happy kitten heels are a playful counterpoint to the menswear vibe of this relaxed Bermudas-and-button-down pairing.
Slim Tank + Wide Legs
The pleated pants elongate, and the slim tank shows just enough skin—making your décolletage a canvas for something sparkly.
