The Non-Fashion Pieces Vogue Editors Are Wearing This Summer – Vogue.com

Summer is the time to let the laze-about fashion flag fly. It’s the wild card of seasons where a quick trip to CVS can lend itself to a new cheeky pair of flip-flops, while passing by the local bodega can lead to a futbol jersey, or rather, the new statement tee. Like the non-fashion shoe, a hit for the hot weather, there is also the unexpected summer staple. Neither expensive nor particularly fashion-forward, these pieces add an odd dose of chic to any getup. Take the long-sleeved summer shirt—the editor-beloved piece exists thanks to the racing jersey, an air-cool polyester necessity that allows for perfect wind chill but also a punch of funky contrast—as well as coverage. Another necessity? The après–ski look of wearing a one-piece as a top can take anyone from the sand to dinner with the quick styling of a short or skirt.

Another editor go-to this summer? The alternative short. Sweat-proof incarnations range from the once-maligned cargo short to the below-the-knee basketball short for the perfect injection of boyish cool. If you’re more in the market for pants, follow our cue and try out the baggy industrial Carhartt trouser. And when it comes to accessories, leave the ladylike baguette at home. The best carryalls for the month are the most low-key of all: totes. Try one in outdoorsy canvas fabric courtesy of L.L. Bean or a hotel-lobby grab-and-go straw souvenir. The takeaway? Forgo fancy—and opt for the off-kilter statement piece that you yourself fancy. Here, see the unlikely chic summer go-tos editors are snapping up this summer.
