What We Considered

✓   Light. soft fabrics

✓   Easy-to-match

✓   Perfect for summer

Our Picks

✓   Mate The Label - Lightest summer fabrics

✓   Richer Poorer - Best matching color palette

✓   Modern Citizen - Best WFH summer lounge

If we can sum up the fashion styles of the summer we’d say it in these words: cute comfy shorts, matching sets, wide leg pants. Maybe a cute flowy dress and wide leg jumpsuit too, TBD. To sum it up, our go-to styles these days are made for spending the summer at home in style. If we’ve learned anything in quarantine is that not much gets done if you’re wearing your old pjs. There’s no guilt in splurging a little to change up your lounge style and inspire s̶u̶n̶b̶a̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ — whoops, typo— WFH routines.
