We’re all about easy, breezy classic style this season. (Check out “Bringing Preppy Back” on page 120.) What better way to work a little quintessential summer into your wardrobe than with outfits that take you right from brunch to beach or day to date?
A casual T and preppy shorts are easily removed and stowed away in a classic satchel, revealing the perfect striped suit for a day in the sun.
