How To Attain Effortless Style
Style shouldn’t be stressful, so we invite you to curate an effortless wardrobe that organically flows with the momentum of your daily life.
We have a mental exercise for you—don’t worry, you won’t break a sweat. Imagine an ideal day. Imagine that your morning routine is perfection and that your workflow is immaculate. Imagine that your errands are fun and that you feel satisfied by the day's end. In a word, imagine that this day feels effortless.
Now, press the rewind button and go back to the morning. What did it look like when you got dressed for the day? Did you debate between different garments? Were you torn when it came to the “look” you wanted to embody?
We get it. There are so many choices throughout the day, and choosing the right outfit can be overwhelming… but it shouldn’t be. An effortless style may seem unattainable, but the key is to select classic, versatile pieces that flow with the momentum of your life. Use the following scenarios to design your ideal effortless wardrobe for less stress and more ease.
Go For Comfort on Active Days
The phrase “on the go” implies a hectic rush from one place to another. However, we challenge you to find a new perspective on such days. Instead of thinking, “I have too many things to do,” reframe it as “My day is full of activities.” Instead of mentally scrambling to keep track of tasks, lean into the momentum and let the energy carry you along freely.
To fully embrace this effortless energy, select comfortable pieces that help you maintain flow and leave you feeling refreshed. Whether you need to dress them up or down, the Emerson Linen Short will keep you feeling chic and breezy. Pair them with a Ribbed Tank for a casual fit or the Harper Linen Top for something more elevated.
Relax Your Workflow with Streamlined Styles
While the words “relax” and “work” don’t often go together, we think you should reconsider. Workwear of the past frequently included rigid lines, structured silhouettes, and coarse fabrics. Work wasn’t necessarily a place for pleasure or leisure, so why would workwear exhibit those features?
We can’t be the only ones who don’t find that appealing, right? If you’re of a similar mind, consider leaving harsh workwear styles in the past where they belong.
A classic piece like the Bronson Linen Blazer is sophisticated and unexpectedly comfortable with its relaxed fit. Pair it with the cuffed hem on the Laurel Linen Pant to develop a workflow that’s streamlined, satisfying, and, you guessed it, effortless.
Shine at Social Events with Chic Simplicity
Whether it’s brunch with friends or an evening out with your partner, something about social events makes us want to express ourselves. We’re not putting hours in at work or ticking off boxes on the to-do list, we’re connecting and engaging with others while expressing our truest selves.
We just happen to think there’s no better way to let your exquisite self shine through than with simple chic pieces that are classic and versatile.
For daytime socializing, try the Bayview Linen Dress and enjoy the flirty knee-length hem and practical pockets. The midi length on the Doheny Linen Dress adds a touch of sophistication, and the tiered skirt makes it equally appropriate for date nights or last-minute weekend getaways.
Downtime Calls for Indulgent Fabrics and Colors
On the rare occasion that you get to enjoy a quiet moment of peace and solitude, don’t forget to indulge your senses. That time with yourself is just as important as the hours you put in at work or the time you spend caring for others. Style may seem as though it’s purely aesthetic, but it can also be a valuable method of self-care.
Sooth your spirit with our ribbed Colfax Summer Cardigan that comes in nature-inspired colors like Ocean, Midnight, Rosewood, and more. The relaxed fit on our Magnolia Linen Culotte balances luxury and practicality for a style that’s perfect for leisurely walks, reading, or simply lounging and enjoying the breeze.
Whether you prefer to wear a color that brightens your spirit or savor a touch-worthy fabric, treat downtime as an opportunity to care for yourself in every way.
