The pieces our fashion team keeps coming back to
Published on: July 28, 2022
Recently, on the walk to lunch, an editor noted that she’s been buying the same pair of sandals every summer for the past few years. Which got us thinking: What’s the one item you can’t stop buying? Here, five editors’ tried and true picks – the pieces that, despite the trends, will always have a place in our wardrobes.

I always buy a variation of these curved leg baggy pants – I own all of the ones below and many more. They’re great for travel, the office (a bit cooler than your average jeans), even weekends away. I usually tuck in something to give me some height and balance the wide legs. Best of all, they work with sandals, flats, sneakers, anything.
Somewhere between reuniting with Waldo as a child and being obsessed with Jane Birkin as a teenager, I fell in love with the striped shirt. Luckily for me, we just launched the perfect one: it’s light enough to wear in the sun, and the long sleeves are perfect for summer nights. I’m going to pair mine with structured shorts to take it from casual to French Girl chic.
I am a hoop girl. I have them in all shapes and sizes, from small to large. So here’s some info I’ve gathered over the years: If you’re looking for a pair of gold earrings (not too big, not too small), get the goop ones. Laura Lombardi makes cute and affordable options from recycled brass, which is cool. And if you opt for something heavier: Lobe Support Patches work. Recently I looked at these silver hoops from Spinelli Kilcollin – they would complement my Petunia ring good.

I live for voluminous dresses with puff sleeves, especially poplin ones. I love how they can be worn casually (to the office with a flat sandal) or dressed up with a heeled sandal, jewelry and a fun lip. They are evident in my book.

White dresses are a staple in my closet and yes, I’m a big fan of wearing white all year round. Besides being a one-step outfit, a white dress always looks flawless and polished. Whether the silhouette is light, close-fitting or utilitarian, the effect is the same: effortless chic.
