Long days and balmy weather are excellent excuses for a closet update. If you’re seeking versatile designs that refresh your existing pieces and look effortless on sunny days, head straight to new-name-to-know High Sport. Founder Alissa Zachary cut her teeth at The Row, and the brand’s calling card is pieces that are “easy to wear, easy to style and easy to care for” – the dream. Viktorija Tomasevic, NET-A-PORTER’s junior shopping editor, has the brand’s ‘Nance’ strapless dress on her wish list: “Mini silhouettes are key for SS23,” says Tomasevic. “This style by High Sport is the perfect pick – the clean lines nod to the ’90s, the stretch fabric is super-flattering, and the pared-back silhouette has serious closet longevity. I’ll wear it with ballet flats and a basket bag by day, styling up with gold jewelry and strappy sandals for evening.”

Toteme’s block-heeled ‘City’ sandals will work beautifully with any outfit. Add a flash of gold to your outfit via Jennifer Meyer’s ‘Small Square’ gold hoop earrings or Lauren Rubinski’s 14-karat-gold chain-link necklace – both pieces tick the investment-jewelry box and will elevate every look. For a pop of color, look to Paco Rabanne, master of print and retro references. The house’s leopard-print stretch-jersey T-shirt is the perfect partner for summer denim – try Goldsign’s ‘The Storey’. Crafted in light-wash denim – perfect for warm weather – the style sits high on the waist, with a wide-leg cut, which is highly coveted this season. Wear with chunky flat sandals for a sleek weekend look – Tod’s raffia-trimmed leather slingback flatform sandals are exclusive to NET-A-PORTER and the sort of pair you’ll have on rotation for many summers to come.

As for versatile accessories, The Row’s much-loved ‘Sofia’ leather tote in classic brown is a cult design with heirloom appeal – the compact size goes with everything from weekend denim to sleek summer work looks. Or, if you’re hunting for a bag that signals summer, look no further than Saint Laurent’s cross-body ‘Cassandre’ in leather-trimmed raffia. An elegant vacation choice, it’s a bag that will translate into your at-home closet, too, bringing a pop of sunshine to city separates. Other summer essentials include Loewe’s ‘Loop’ sunglasses in sunshine yellow and Tata Harper’s cult Elixir Vitae serum, a multi-targeting formula packed with 72 natural super-ingredients.
