6 picks for effortless summer style

From swimwear to dresses, breezy linen, and grab-and-go accessories, summer is a great time to lighten your layers and add versatility to your wardrobe with cool, easy pieces.

As temperatures rise, we like to seek new relaxed styles that work from work days to weekends, day to evening, barbecues to beach parties, getaways to staycations.

Here are our top picks for effortless style this summer:


A new swimsuit is essential as we take the plunge into the season. Gathered detailing adds beautiful drape and flattering camouflage to stylish swim silhouettes. Offered in classic navy or an array of elegant prints, the Ruched Front One-Piece Swimsuit is an ideal companion for warm-weather adventures.


Embroidery, sculpted sleeves, elegant prints… Effortless summer dresses, from magnificent maxis and relaxed shapes, are instant outfits for every summer occasion. Each color and print creates a different look, so when you find the dress styles you like, consider adding multiples of the same silhouette to your wardrobe.

We love the Pocket-Detail Maxi Dress, Embroidered Lantern-Sleeve Dress, and Embroidered-Bodice Knit Maxi Dress.


Open knits, special detailing, the soft touch of our lightest cashmere made from the fine, downy undercoat of Kashmir goats…our summer cashmere collection is ideal for air-conditioned offices and warding off seaside chills.

From a cardigan or pullover with open pointelle patterning to a relaxed-fit V-neck with a charming tie accent, this sweater collection delights with delicate detailing.


Light and airy gauze designs are cool and drape beautifully. From breezy skirts to wide-leg easy pants and long cover-up dresses, these styles travel effortlessly from workday to weekends, beach to bistro—making them ideal to pack for vacation.

We particularly love these cropped palazzo pants paired with a boxy organic-pima-cotton top. It’s an ideal look for every summer day.


Oh, how we love linen, especially in a long, versatile Easy Linen Tunic that tosses on easily over anything—jeans, shorts, even a swimsuit. Offered in solids, chambray, and stripes this is the go to top of the season.

For additional lightweight layers, explore the many exclusive linen looks in The Linen Shop.


From a strappy pair of sandals to a beautiful lightweight scarf, the right accessories instantly change your look and suit many summer occasions. It’s important to have an arsenal of grab-and-go pieces ready for whatever the season throws at you. Sunglasses are essential for every daytime look and summer activity. A roomy tote works from office to shopping, lunch with friends, and a trip to the beach, but it’s also a practical way to keep other accessories handy.
