Don’t knock the classic white cotton T-shirt. I wear a classic white tee almost every day, and I’m noticing French girls embrace this classic staple by styling it with chic tailored denim and blazers or their favorite miniskirts.

Tailored trouser shorts are the perfect mix of work and play. The tailored look gives these shorts an elevated feel while keeping the casualness of a classic short. You can go with a classic neutral pair or be bold and go with a colorful or patterned pair. Either way, I’m in love.
