Quiet luxury is all about looking effortlessly chic and polished. It’s about investing in high-quality pieces that will last for years, rather than following fleeting trends. A simple approach to nail this look will be to get neutral-toned separates in luxurious textures like silk, organic cotton or linen. Keep your accessories minimal and understated. A pair of statement earrings, a delicate necklace, or a classic watch are the key accessories you really need.

4|Classic White T-Shirt + Bottoms

I love T-shirts during spring/summer because they are versatile and can be easily paired with various bottoms, including shorts, skirts, or lightweight trousers, making them suitable for different occasions, from casual outings to outdoor activities. Here are some simple ways to style T-shirts for summer.
