  • While we adore analyzing the runways and poring over designer mood boards, we spend a considerable amount of time pondering a more prosaic question: what should we wear? Whether it’s a wedding, work affair, or weekend brunch, getting dressed for specific occasions is a constant conundrum. In the hopes of outfit enlightenment--for us and for you!--we’re delighted to present What To Wear, our weekly wardrobe guide for every occasion. This week, we'll be covering what to wear to a country club.

    The Goal: 
    Create a polished outfit that feels conservative, yet summery. 

  • Nothing feels more on-point for a preppy environment than classic navy stripes.

  • It’s helpful to have a blazer on hand, especially if you move from outside to the more formal realm of the clubhouse.

    Topshop Collarless Panel Jacket ($100)

  • Dressier fabrics like this silk skirt are always a safe bet. Unless you’re dressed in sporting attire, leave the cotton and jersey at home!

  • Low chunky heels feel more elevated than a flat, but are still comfortable for walking.

  • Leave your slouchy bags at home, and opt for a smart structured purse instead.

  • Channel American icon Jacqueline Kennedy with these affordable round sunnies.

  • The light green tea and dandelion scent of this hand cream is an excellent summer alternative to heavier perfume.

  • These rings are just begging for a monogram. We would get one initial engraved on each, so when stacked together they make a complete monogram.
