It’s been a minute since I’ve done a wear it now & later post — almost a year, actually! When I received this plaid essential cami from Banana Republic’s Simply Sophisticated Summer collection, I knew it was the perfect transitional piece to style for summer and fall.
Through writing and going through the Feel Good, Dress Better process myself, I learned that the biggest hole in my closet is “going out” clothing. I always struggle when it comes to dressing for night when my plans require something other than my favorite pjs and a fuzzy robe.
In being more intentional with my closet, I wanted to choose pieces from Banana’s new arrivals that I knew would get a lot of wear, especially when it came to dressing for nighttime. Coincidentally, this cami isn’t just versatile in terms of transitioning from day to night — it also transitions flawlessly from summer to fall! The typically summer white makes for a cool contrast with traditional fall colors while the print is a play on autumnal plaid. Hey hey, new closet workhorse!
Check out how I styled the essential cami with distressed denim and leather accents for both summer and fall!
