“I am not a light packer. Look at my Instagram for this trip—you are going to laugh!” Celebrity stylist Ann Caruso whips out her phone and shows us her Instagram feed; she’s right, definitely not a light packer. But as we trail through the racks of clothes and accessories at THE OUTNET’s sunny headquarters in London, it’s clear that her eye for editing is sharp and concise. The pieces she’s picked (see above) have versatility and multi-functionality in mind, on top of being chic and right on trend. “Think about the occasions that you are going to and shop accordingly, so you are not bringing tons of things. I think it is really important to put your outfits together before you go,” she says. Her top choices for summer from THE OUTNET’s newly launched Summer Shop? Beautiful, floaty dresses from Matthew Williamson and Etro, crisp summer whites with a romantic edge (à la Adam Lippes), topped off with statement-making shoes and accessories. Click through to see her picks of the season, as well as her tips for how to wear the pieces.
