Most Coveted is a new shopping series sharing our editors’ curation of the must-know items they can’t stop thinking about.
For as long as my memory serves, I have preferred fall over summer. Dressing in cozier pieces has just been my jam, so shopping for a summer wardrobe is always, well, a challenge. I live in London, where we hardly ever even see the sun, but we’ve been lucky these past two years and had very warm summers (ahem, 2022 heatwave). To avoid any warm-weather dressing FOMO this year, I went ahead and made an entire itinerary of my summer travel plans. I did not, however, factor in that I basically only own sweaters.
I need all the help I can get, so I’m starting from the top. Between browsing new arrivals, bookmarking my favorite street style looks, and taking recommendations from my lovely fellow editors, I feel like I can see the light. I’ve added an abundance of linen, chic but comfortable sandals, a swimsuit (or two), and beauty products to my cart. Take a look at my 30 warm-weather picks below.
The original crinkle swimwear brand was obviously the first pick.
My cotton wide-leg trousers will be taking a backseat for this linen-blend pair.
Ines de la Fressange’s collaboration with Uniqlo is quickly becoming my go-to for neutral lightweight finds.
Here’s a moisturizer that’ll help keep my skin looking dewy without the excess oil. (Plus, it’s a cult favorite for a reason.)
I can’t create a summer wardrobe without a classic basket bag, and Chloé’s leather-trimmed variation is the perfect size for all my essentials.
These celeb-favorite sunglasses are worth a spot in your summer rotation.
I’ll be living in this smooth silk vest on those hot summer days when I’m WFG (working from garden).
My most recommended beauty product for that sun-kissed glow, and it’s only $5!
Effortless and chic, these sandals are woven from natural raffia with thick, comfortable crossover straps.
A flowy dress calls for some anti-chafing shapewear and you can’t go wrong with the natural pair from Soma.
Straight-leg jeans are chalking up to be the style of the season. Grab this pair stat.
If ever there was a bag that screams summer, it’d be this Staud woven shoulder bag.
I went from not wearing any sun protection to literally craving it thanks to this La Roche Posay product.
I’m giving my buttoned down PJs a rest and opting for this cotton gauze chemise for those warm nights.
I just want to take a moment to appreciate this silk-blend shirt, which I’ll be taking on vacation with me.
These cutoffs will pair equally well with a blouse and blazer as they will with my swimsuit.
Staying true to my neutral style, this COS maxi dress is the perfect summer addition.
A wardrobe clean-out is the perfect excuse to finally succumb to this Row tote bag.
I need more than just one swimsuit, and it’s only right to make my next bikini a Seafolly one.
This is the mascara for those hot and sticky lounge days.
