Most Coveted is a new shopping series sharing our editors’ curation of the must-know items they can’t stop thinking about.
There’s nothing more satisfying than shopping for summer pieces during a city heatwave, and it’s no secret that this summer has been hot—like, ridiculously hot. So true to form, I’ve taken the scorching heat as a sign to reinvigorate my summer wardrobe. I’ve been snagging every light tank and airy linen dress I can get my hands on, and while my summer aesthetic begins with fresh, new clothes, it ends with the accessories and makeup looks to match. When it comes to fashion and beauty, I like to keep it neutral (beige is my love language), and I’ve got my eye on some real winners at the moment. White square-toed sandals, taupe sneakers, brown mascara, peachy eye shadow, and of course, lots of flowy, breathable pieces are topping my summer wish list. If you want to combat the heat with cool, neutral classics this summer, check out my entire wish list below.
In what world would a white maxi dress not be the first piece on my summer wish list? Three cheers for the pockets on this one.

A silky cover-up will elevate any beach or poolside look. I’m obsessed with this subtle print.
Cream bronzers give my skin that perfect summer glow we’re all after (without the sun damage).
A black maxi skirt is a no-brainer for summer. This one even has a back pocket for that little something extra.
Linen shorts are the key to breezy summer outfits. And if you’re not a neutrals person, these come in bold zebra, hot pink, and even palm-tree print.

I told you I was scooping up every flowy dress in sight. The price tag on this one made it an easy choice.
I may be a neutrals girl through and through, but I’m not afraid to make a statement. These modern, square-toed sandals are the perfect bold touch to any summer outfit.
Throw this on as a beach cover-up, or tuck it into white jeans for an alfresco dinner. Either way, it’s the quintessential summer piece.
The only way to bring natural color back to my under eyes.
I love a creamy-brown lip any time of year, and this liner will do the trick.
Cat-eye sunglasses are trending this summer, but make no mistake: They’re as classic as they come.

Of course, I also need a light and neutral nail polish for good measure.
