1. Relaxed-Fit Crisp Cotton Poplin Shirt, $59.62 (Orig. $79.50)

Fashion “It Girls” know that you can wear a white button-down shirt pretty much anywhere, from the office to the beach. Roll up the sleeves and tuck it into jean shorts with sandals, or wear it with your favorite leggings and sneakers. There’s nowhere this crisp white top can’t go.

2. Squareneck Soft Gauze Dress, $47.49–$59 (Orig. $118)

This comfy and cool gauze dress comes in a range of pretty colors. Pair it with your favorite flip flops or heels when you need an easy, dressed up look.

3. High-Rise Denim Short in Juniper Wash, $59.62 (Orig. $79.50)

Denim shorts are another summer staple that you should definitely have in your closet. This stretchy high-rise pair features a zip-fly, and they’re not too long or too short with a 4-inch inseam. Wear them with a blouse, a tank top or over your swimsuit during the day and with a sweater or linen blazer on a chilly night.

4. Relaxed Denim Jacket in Ecru, $57.49 (Orig. $128)

You may already have a blue denim jacket, but you can pair this cream-colored one with jeans and not feel like you’re wearing a Canadian tuxedo. Plus, it feels a little bit dressier than your regular jean jacket, so you can wear it over a dress when you go out for a nice dinner. (Note: This one is final sale!)

5. Kauai Tie-Strap Mini Dress, $50.99 (Orig. $138)

This black mini dress gives the LBD a summer face-lift with its breezy viscose fabric and A-line silhouette. However, there are a few details that make it stand out, like the delicate tie straps. Wear it on its own or pair it with a jean jacket when the temperature drops. (Note: This one is final sale!)

6. Menorca Scrunchie-Strap Slides in Leather, $38.49 (Orig. $98)

The best part about these leather slide sandals is that they sort of fit like flip-flops, but they’re even comfier. They have a super soft memory foam footbed, and they don’t make that smacking sound when you walk. Of course, they also look nicer than standard flip-flops, so you can wear them to even more places. [Editor’s note: A few of my friends have these shoes and can’t stop raving about them.]

7. ’90s Cropped Organic Slub Cotton T-Shirt, $17.25 (Orig. $34.50)

Everyone needs a go-to white T-shirt, so why not make it this one? This ’90s-inspired tee has a more cropped fit, but it’s not actually a crop top. It hangs just above your pants’ waistband. It also has a higher scoop neckline, a slightly shrunken fit and a thick cotton material (aka, it’s not sheer at all). Stock up in a few different colors if you need to.

8. Plunge One-Piece Swimsuit, $59 (Orig. $118)

Credit: J.Crew

This black one-piece will be your go-to on days when you feel like wearing a swimsuit and on days when you don’t at all. It’s a little bit sexy with a plunging V-neckline (and removable padding), but the back offers moderate coverage and adjustable straps. Going for lunch by the beach? Wear it with your jean shorts and white button-down top.
