No matter how many festive sundresses and sandals you add to your summer wardrobe, you should always have a core group of reliable basics that can multi-task. The kind of pieces that require no thought and can be counted on to keep you looking pulled together: a basic button-down, classic swim pieces, an open-weave knit you can layer over everything, fluid trousers for post-beach shopping or evening barbecues, and a perfect straw hat. (And always a good read.) These Josh Olin photos from British Vogue 2014, remain my favorite summer basic inspiration. See more photos and options below.
