TEAM INSIDER: Cool and Not Cool in 2024 pt. II

We are back with another rendition of Cool and Not Cool, Summer ’24 edition!

Navigating the ins and outs of fashion can be tricky, especially in the world of social media and micro trends. We are constantly being told the items we bought last season are no longer relevant. Luckily, your fashion experts are here with answers and tips for purchasing the right items to ensure you are cool for seasons to come!

For this week’s blog, we are focusing on the essentials. Updating your everyday basics will improve the core of your wardrobe and help make getting ready that much easier.


Denim Shorts


Similar to the denim advice in part 1 of our Cool/Not Cool blog, denim short updates are simple- stick to a high waist and as little distressing as possible. Our go-to is the AGOLDE Parker long short. Purchased for many clients over the years, these denim shorts are flattering on a variety of shapes and sizes.




The blouse is an often neglected piece in the wardrobe. A great blouse that goes from work to date night is a wardrobe essential. An easy switch we recommend for updating your blouses is opting for a blouse with an open neckline. This can range from v-neck to boat neck (if you prefer more coverage). We love this blouse from Anthropologie because the zipper allows for customizable coverage. The pleating on the back is also so flattering and allows the blouse to be tucked or left untucked!




There is nothing better than a great sneaker that is equal parts chic and comfortable. We’ve seen many varieties of this over the last few years as the sneaker trend has become popular. Here are our recommendations for an updated sneaker that will last you for seasons to come. Not only do both these styles on the bottom feel more modern, but they can also be worn for athletic activities or dressed up and stylized for a more elevated look.
