A change in outlook—yes, go ahead and channel that vacation-like energy right rn—and switching to lighter, breathable fabrics, like cotton and linen. Herewith, easy summer styles you can shop from Uniqlo and how to wear them.
UNIQLO U Crew Neck T-Shirt (P590)
100% cotton, available for men and women
A mustard yellow shirt is surprisingly easy to wear and style, and looks great on anyone. Wear it tucked in (all the way or just at the front) with bottoms in white, navy blue or black. On days you’re aching to try something fresh or bold, try a tonal look (think: khaki pants) or pair it with bright red outerwear or accessories.
