7 Easy Summer Outfits You Probably Already Own

You never know what your day is going to throw at you, so when it comes to getting dressed in the morning—which is usually among the first few steps—the simpler the better. One way I like to streamline the getting-ready process is by keeping a mental and physical registry of outfit ideas I know I can quickly put together and that won’t let me down. Occasionally, I do this by saving various posts from stylish women I love to follow on Instagram in an "outfits” folder, referencing it, and committing to memory those I find most useful for me. With that in mind, today I figured I’d share some of the combos I’m aiming to try this coming week.

From comfort-centric looks to more dressed-up, feel-good ’fits, below are seven outfits that I recently came across that are entirely made up of basic pieces I already own and, of course, are cool enough to wear on repeat. To see each one and shop them along the way, just keep scrolling.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
