Do Less: Cool-Girl Looks That Come
Together in Minutes

Living in loungewear has certainly been blissful, but there are certain situations—say, a trip to your local goop store, or an outdoor coffee date with your work wife, or a backyard dinner with your quarantine crew—that require something more substantial. “Real clothes” don’t have to be daunting. Case in point: these fuss-free, laid-back looks for leaving the house.

Cuffing Season

If the thought of shimmying into skinny jeans triggers your fight-or-flight response, opt for unconstricting wide-legs with soft pleats and substantial cuffs instead. Classic navy is a neutral backdrop for easy add-ons (sculptural knit, swipe of cream blush) in enticing colors, like olive and cherry.

Dressed Intentions

We’ve reached the point where putting on a pretty dress to go outside brings an almost unreasonable amount of joy. If said dress is made of a soft, stretchy merino-silk blend, even better. Winterize it with a chunky sweater and sneakers, then switch it up once the snow melts.

Good Sport

PSA for all runners, hikers, and ten-thousand-steppers: That weatherproof anorak you’re wearing everywhere right now? It’ll work well into spring with a few strategic styling swaps (leather culottes for leggings, flip-flops for sneakers) and a colorblocked carryall slung over your shoulder.

Knit Happens

The cardigan gets a cool-girl makeover by way of black-on-oatmeal stripes in sumptuous Italian merino. Plus: pockets. In the spirit of manifesting milder temps, we’re picturing it with paper-bag shorts; dainty, glimmering accessories; and this modern riff on Mary Janes.

Shorts Stop

Here’s the thing about sweatpants: It’s all fun and games until you’re working under a weighted blanket and overheating faster than a laptop with twenty open tabs. Sweatshorts, however, have climate control built in and are more errand-friendly than their—dare we say it?—slightly overrated sibling.
