How does one dress in late spring and early summer for a casual weekend? What is a casual outfit, anyway? If you’ve spent the last year in some iteration of loungewear, putting on real clothes again can be both a delight and a challenge. A casual outfit, above all, should be functional—beyond that, it’s whatever makes you feel your best.
If you feel uninspired in your casual wardrobe department, a elegant yet effortless piece that is equally suited for WFH or dressing for a countryside walk at the weekend is the way to go. You know, something you can button up or down, with thigh-high slits and a cinched waist and still look casual enough for your daily bakery stops. And while a simple tank top and silk slip skirt would get the job done, floral maxi, polished button-down, and silk separates of your dreams earn bonus style points.
