I dress up from time to time when it makes sense for the occasion, but I typically live in casual outfits for my day-to-day life. But as a shopping editor who writes about fashion daily, I’m a firm believer that casual doesn’t mean boring. In fact, there are actually a few specific easy summer items I’m currently wearing and/or recommending to others to create chic casual looks.
Below, I’m showcasing the pieces in question that also seem to be front-runners for some of my favorite fashion follows on Instagram. If you keep scrolling, you’ll uncover everything from an of-the-moment shoe silhouette to my go-to shirting style. There’s also a range of shopping inspiration for each category in case you too want to add one of the items to your own wardrobe.
