I Want to Be Wearing That: a Wrap Dress Over Pants
My wrap dresses are, hands down, some of the most flattering silhouettes I've ever owned. But beyond the standard printed midi that you wear with heels and a blazer for the office, there are so many unique ways to style the versatile design. Right now, my favourite is over a pair of wide-leg pants that pool to the floor. Maybe they have pockets that you can make use of, so you'll look extra cool standing tall in a pair of wedges that complete the look. You don't have to panic about perfectly fastening all the interior buttons or cinching the sash at your waist too tightly because — guess what? — your underwear is not the next layer of this well-orchestrated outfit.
I don't think there's any combination that better speaks to "relaxed sophistication" in the Summer. Pile on some gold jewellery, including a pair of architectural earrings, and swing your neutral shoulder bag at your side. You're instantly ready for a day at the office, and if you have an event at night, consider switching up your look by shedding the trousers and slipping on a '90s minimalist sandal. "Chic" doesn't even begin to describe the way you look right now, but maybe "smarty pants" is on the right track.
