I'm a 55-Year-Old Stylist—These Summer Staples Seriously Work for Everyone

Discovering style through the lenses of different creatives is always inspiring. Roz Kaur, a 55-year-old stylist, is someone who always has that unique sense of fashion. While age certainly has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear, her more experienced sartorial point of view is of note given her years of fine-tuning her wardrobe and the closets of her clients with her work as a stylist (currently at Anthropologie). On that note, she decided to share with us the summer items she gravitates toward because she thinks they really could work for everyone with different styles because of their versatile nature.

Below, you'll uncover Kaur's edit of effortless staples. You may already have some of the items in your offering, while others could feel fresh. Regardless, the summer shopping list below might serve as great inspiration.

1. Linen Dress

On Kaur: Joslin dress

"Linen is a fabric meant for warmer climates. It's cool, timeless, breathable, and chic. This linen dress is just the thing to make you feel like you made some kind of effort, even though all you did was just throw it on."

On Kaur: Anthropologie tunic

"This crotchet number could work over a bikini or can be layered and belted over slips and other light cotton dresses for rooftop parties and bonfires alike."

3. Woven Tote

On Kaur: Anthropologie tote

"A chic woven tote is super, super fun and poppy and perfect for a day of schlepping around town shopping."

On Kaur: Free People sandals

"You can't go wrong with a pair of classic gladiators or strappy sandals—they make you look like you just came back from some amazing Greek island and work with almost any outfit you can imagine."

5. Statement Shades

On Kaur: Vint & York shades

"These Vint & York shades feel super old-school glam but also somehow work for every day."

6. Bucket Hat
