Tomboy style lies at the heart of whatever fashion sense I possess, so I like the idea of a work-appropriate sweatshirt paired with a patterned A-line mini—though in my case, I’d wear it with knee-high boots (ankle boots are not a good look for me). Maybe a nice pair of Hunter wellies. || Speaking of Everlane, I’m super stoked about my His for Her men’s oxford shirt, which just arrived in the mail today. I’m so often nabbing my boyfriend’s roomy tailored oxfords and V-neck sweaters, it’ll be a relief—for both him and me!—to have my own “slightly tapered waist” version. Plus, the Everlane oxfords seem to sell out like hotcakes; just a couple of weeks ago they were completely sold out in all sizes, and as I type this now, XS and S are also again out of stock.everlane his for her

What: A shrunken sweatshirt cut in thick reverse terrycloth.

Why: We never thought we’d live to see the day when athletic-style sweatshirts became work appropriate, but now that it’s here, we’re embracing the comfy trend with both (terrycloth-clad) arms. This dark navy number from Everlane—a west coast based e-commerce shop specializing in gorgeously crafted basics—is a shrunken version of the brand’s men’s style, and is made from an ultra-soft reverse terry material.

How: To elevate this casual closet staple for work, we’d pair it with a short skirt and ankle boots, or a pair of cropped trousers and a chunky heels. For a lazy weekend around the neighborhood, we’d stick to Americana classics and pair the sweatshirt with staples like boyfriend-style jeans or chinos, a pair of plain white Superga sneakers, and a cool cross-body bag.

Retro swimsuits

What an awesome look! Just think, while every other woman is walking around looking more or less the same in a bikini, you can rock a retro one-piece with class and never look dated. I like this cap-sleeve number even more than the Marilyn Monroe–inspired one-piece below (my previous fave). Plus, let’s face it, the ruching would be pretty forgiving. Hope another version arrives in stock before summer!
