Fool-Proof Summer Outfit Formula: Elevated Tee + White Jeans + Sandals

Greetings and cheers to the weekend! I’m back today with a simple outfit formula that is perfect for so many summer occasions: pair an elevated tee with white jeans and sandals for a polished but effortless summer outfit.

Boden Linen Voop Tee in Ultramarine with Madewell 9" Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans in Pure White and Sam Edelman Regis Platform Wedge Sandals

This linen voop tee is from Boden, and I absolutely adore the details and the quality.

I love the “voop” neckline — it’s a cross between a v-neck and a scoop neck, and it’s pretty much universally flattering. However, it’s the pompom trim along the neck and shoulders that make it anything but a basic tee.

For size reference, I have my usual small, and it fits great, but I can’t say I’m not concerned about shrinkage. I think if it is laid flat to dry, it can be reshaped and will be okay, but if at all in doubt, you may want to size up.

Also of note, I love that it has a straight hemline. I feel like the curved hemlines add visual weight to the belly area when left untucked, but they look odd front-tucked. This top is the perfect length for wearing in or out — whichever you prefer.

This top is made of a nice quality linen fabric, and it comes in several fun summery colors. I’d stay away from the white, per the reviews (it sounds like it’s fairly see-through); but the navy, blush, and mustard are all nice options if you don’t care for this ultramarine.

Personally, I love how the this bright shade of teal pairs with white; it’s one of my favorite summertime color combos.

My white Madewell skinnies and wedge platform sandals in a versatile saddle brown leather are summer wardrobe basics I wear over and over with other pieces in my closet.

I love the fit on these jeans, and I’ve been wearing them a ton.

Also, these sandals are currently 30% off at Bloomingdales, and they also come in black and jute — a metallic that is sort of in between silver and gold.

Once again, I carried this little rattan crossbody that I found on Amazon, and I accessorized with a few of my favorite Stella & Dot pieces — everything is linked up below.

I love how simple this look is, and yet the details make it anything but boring. It’s definitely one of my favorite outfit formulas for summer.
