2. equipment

The silk camisole and slip dress is everywhere this summer and we think this one from Parisian label, Equipment, is one of the most wearable. Though you could always pair with your favorite denim for a classic summer by the shore look, it can also be dressed up with white cropped trousers for a more tailored look.
