In case you missed it, Who What Wear just launched a genuinely delightful new podcast called Who What Wear with Hillary Kerr. Expect to hear excellent weekly conversations on all things fashion and beauty with very specials guests ranging from celebrity stylists and makeup artists to designers and tastemakers, plus chats with our own editors and so much more. During a part of the second episode that felt suspiciously targeted directly at me, the subject turned to transitioning out of wearing sweatpants 24/7 and back into the real world of, well, getting dressed.
Yes, it's spring, and it's a great time to get excited about fashion again, but let's also be practical about it, shall we? A year spent in matching loungewear sets got me convinced that cute and comfortable aren't mutually exclusive, so I'm on board with this week's pod suggestion that easing back into the world of actual clothes is far more enticing when we opt for more relaxed silhouettes. I'm already backing this easy-to-wear trend for spring by way of roomy house dresses, oversize blazers and knits, and the jeans I can actually imagine wearing. Even polished tops can be secretly comfortable when sizing up (my favorite trick) or leaning into breathable fabrics that feel good to wear. I'm starting with this edit of relaxed (and surprisingly affordable) spring staples below.
This oversize button-down will be an essential in your spring and summer wardrobe. I'm currently into styling it underneath a chunky sweater with the sleeves and collar peeking out, but it'll make an ideal swimsuit cover-up before I know it.
