Linen Blazer

MANGO BLAZER– A gorgeous and classic-looking linen blazer from MANGO. Wear this blazer with a cami or tank, straight-leg jeans, sandals, and a market tote for a classic Parisian summer look.

Eyelet Top

RAG & BONE– During the summer, an eyelet top is an attractive option to wear with jeans, trousers, shorts, and even skirts. It’s lightweight and airy yet makes a statement.

Pair it with a market tote and you have the perfect outfit for the season. Try this investment one from Rag & Bone, or go with a less expensive option like this one.

BODEN– Classic any time of the year, a striped top is quintessential French. This short sleeve version can be worn with jeans or trousers.

Linen Tank

BANANA REPUBLIC– Every great capsule collection needs a hero layering piece for the season. This linen one from Banana Republic is perfect under blazers, with shorts, jeans, and trousers. This one is classic enough it can be dressed up or worn casually.

Linen Button Down

BANANA REPUBLIC– Classic linen button-down perfect for the summer season. Linen is timeless and made to wear during the summer season.

Black Linen Dress

MANGO– Love a classic black linen dress to wear during the summer when you want to look polished yet comfortable and cool. This is a longer dress you can wear with flat or heeled sandals.


MANGO– Even in the summer, sometimes a classic trench coat is needed in case of cool evenings. If there’s one coat to invest in that can be worn in all seasons, it’s a trench coat.



Bermuda Shorts

GAP– These days, I much prefer a longer short to a shorter one. It’s chic and elevated and age-appropriate.

Straight Leg Denim

MOTHER– Classic pair of straight-leg denim looks great with sandals and even heels during the summer. MOTHER Denim is my favorite brand to wear and I have been wearing these on repeat. A great pair of denim can make an outfit, and flatter your silhouette.

Black Trousers

EVERLANE– Classic, ankle-length trousers to wear with sandals, ballet flats, or even sandals.



Straw Tote

BA&SH PARIS– Love this French Panier from ba&sh Paris, which I used all last summer and will be using again this summer. A market tote is one of those quintessential bags for the summer season and is very French. For a less expensive version, try this one.

Black Bag

BANANA REPUBLIC– A classic black bag is always a good option to have for any season, even during the summer. This one is a crossbody, so you can easily toss things in your bag and go, while still looking chic.

Bucket Bag

SÉZANE– Last year, I purchased this bucket bag in Paris, and it was one of my most used bags over the year. The leather is gorgeous, hardly scratches at all, and looks more expensive than it costs. A beautiful bucket bag never goes out of style and this one will last for years to come.

Black Belt

J.CREW– My favorite belt to wear with trousers is this classic black leather belt from J.Crew.


VEJA– During summer, I prefer lower-profile sneakers to wear with dresses, jeans, and skirts. This style made by the French brand is stylish and comfortable enough to wear all summer long.

Black Sandals

M.GEMI– A beautiful black sandal for the summer season which looks elevated with the stitching. For a less expensive version, try these here.

Brown Sandals

TUCKERNUCK– Classic and comfortable, this brown slide is a great dupe of a designer version, but a fraction of the price.

Gold Sandals
