One Piece, Three Ways:
The Ruffled Blouse

Think of this cotton blouse as a study in contrast: A high-low hem and artfully frayed sleeve openings are a little bit punk, while the ruffle accents and prim collar are as femme as it gets; meanwhile, the breezy poplin ties it all together in a way that’s just right for summer. Here, three personality-driven ways to approach the styling.

The Nonconformist

Boots for summer are a tough ask but rendered in white with a stacked wooden heel, this Rag & Bone pair gets the job done with flying colors. A camel midi skirt, black-and-white clutch, and sleek mixed-metal jewelry keep the palette in neutral.

The Working Girl

Tailored silk trousers and a cropped blazer, though not technically a matching suit, accomplish the same task, taking you from a day at the office to night on the town with two easy adds: a studded clutch and a swipe of lipstick.

The Daisy-Duke Wannabe

Denim cutoffs (this pair is the perfect not-too-skimpy length) + a crisp white top is a forever reliable warm-weather-weekend team. The finishing touches—retro sunglasses, straw tote, and and beaded bracelets—carry you to the beach, to brunch, and beyond.
