The Bomber Jacket
Since this outerwear style tends to dominate any outfit, dial back the other components so they don't compete. In this look, black skinny jeans and a knit tank create the perfect minimal foundation. The metallic loafers echo the zipper detailing on the maroon jacket — which you can punch up further with a cool patch.
The Romantic Blouse
Frilly off-the-shoulder blouses are seemingly unstoppable this season. Take the look to a bold level by skipping the all-too-obvious white and blue linen iterations in favor of a tropical print. Then bring out the brightest colors of the top with coordinating accessories, like these poppy yellow mules. Light-wash denim pulls everything together and keeps the candy colors in check.
The Streetwear Sneaker
A silky wrap-front midi-skirt is what you'd least expect to be paired with futuristic sneakers — and that's exactly why it works. Instead of a heel to match the fabric's fancy vibe, the commuter-cum-gym shoe makes it believably low-key. Complete the look with a striped tank for a small dose of pattern and a white leather backpack for a punchy contrast.
The Graphic Dad Hat
You could go full athleisure with this neutral ball cap, but we like it with a more nuanced normcore vibe. A tie-front tee and ripped jeans make for an easy pairing, while the printed woven pullover keeps it cozy and adds texture. Resist the urge to reach for slip-on sneakers, and try a heeled sandal instead; it'll bring a polished element to the look to keep it from veering too celeb coffee run.
The Flared Jean
No surprise here: Flares are still going strong (and long). Instead of giving this silhouette the predictable '70s spin of yesteryear, elevate it with a cocktail-party clutch and an oversized-dress-over-pants twist. The tie waist adds definition to an otherwise sack-like silhouette. Slide into block-heeled sandals for a boost — with those sidewalk-skimming hems, you'll need it.
