Of course, everyone might not be able to swing the $2,450 price tag for the Chloé resort '14 iteration, but it's still a great source of inspiration for when you build your daily wardrobe. After all, whether it's styled for the office or a quick errand, this piece is super easy to incorporate into your ensemble. A plain, white tee and high-water pants are the foundation of the outfit — they're also wardrobe staples that'll see plenty of use beyond this look. Accessorize with a colorblocked satchel, a block-heeled pump, and, of course, that essential cream vest, and you've got an ensemble that's the epitome of French-girl chic (a.k.a the art of not trying too hard). We think it's positively parfait.
