Please take a seat.

The term “capsule collection” has taken on a uniform meaning over the last couple of years. We’re conditioned to know exactly what someone means when they mention it: basic white T-shirts, a trusty pair of jeans, and a trench coat, for example. But not everyone realizes how much time and effort it takes to create a capsule collection and make it work for both your personal taste and the ever-changing style environment. 

Now more than ever, I’m moving away from trendy pieces and impulse purchases as I take a more considered approach to shopping. As summer rolls around, I’m looking for pieces that will not only add a fresh spin to my wardrobe rotation but also help elevate the pieces I already own. Enter MOTF. Its City Chic collection features pure silk and linen essentials in both elegant and versatile silhouettes, which is everything that my aesthetic embodies. I’m talking about classic striped shirts, buttoned-down blazers, and crisp midi dresses, all pieces that I've added to my curated edit. 

To help my summer wardrobe reach absolute perfection, I’ve browsed the collection and picked the top 15 pieces that I’ll be purchasing to elevate my style.
