Coastal, Casual, and Cool—30 Fashion Items Emulating My Vibe This Summer

Editor Natalie Gray Herder Wearing Yellow Dress

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

The first humid day of June had me in a tizzy. Summer: 1, Nat's closet: 0. My commute requires a bit of walking and some time in the underground sauna (the NYC subway), and I showed up to the office as if I had just walked on the sun itself. Embarrassing? Yes. But I know I'm not alone in my need for stylish summer clothes that will keep me breezy. A striped button-down with matching shorts, linen barrel pants, and comfortable but cute sandals are what I set out to find, but of course, I found a lot more than that. My summer vibe is all about coastal, casual clothing that still looks somewhat put-together, and I know the following 30 items fit the bill perfectly. So if you're also in desperate need of office attire, beach outfits, and going-out clothes that will help you survive the humidity, shop my wish list below.
