As the sun starts to shine brighter and the temperatures rise, I’ve started to put the heavy layers away and break out the linen, dresses, and shorts. I wanted to share a few chic pieces I’ve incorporated into my wardrobe, including fresh silhouettes for warm weather. All items featured are from Sézane.

Summer kicks off this weekend! Here are eight stylish, seasonal pieces for warm days and chilly nights.

1. Lelio Top

Crafted from lightweight fabric and featuring delicate detailing, this top is the epitome of effortless elegance. Its relaxed silhouette and subtle back ruffles make it perfect for warm-weather days spent lounging in the sun or enjoying a picnic in the park. Pair it with your favorite denim shorts or linen trousers for a laid-back yet polished look.

Fit Notes: This item fits true to size but if you are busty, size up.

2. Aurora Blouse & 3. Lucilla Skirt

The Aurora blouse is a strapless top that doesn’t make me feel like I’m trying to dress “younger” than my age. I use quotes because wear whatever the hell makes you feel good! For me, I like a bit of structure and shape if I’m going strapless. This green is stunning!

Fit Notes: This top fits true to size.

Lucilla Skirt


I have this knee-length pencil skirt in green and the fit is perfection. Sometimes I feel a little frumpy in skirts this length, but the slit up the front and the way it cinches the waist is both elegant and a little sexy.

Fit Notes: This skirt runs true to size.

4. Ulysse Shirt

The Ulysse shirt puts a menswear-inspired twist on a super feminine silhouette. It’s a really fun statement top with embroidery that dresses up an outfit without having to do too much accessorizing. I love the neckline!

Fit Notes: This top fits true to size.

5. Low Freya Sandals

Sezane Low Freya Sandals


A great statement sandal that is practical and stylish. These sandals look great with any summer outfit, from flowy sundresses to t-shirts and denim.

Fit Notes: These sandals fit true to size.

6. Emile Cardigan

While summer days may be warm, evenings can still bring a chill in the air. The Emile cardigan is a piece I always reach for in my closet, and they finally have their cherry red color back in stock!

Fit Notes: This sweater runs true to size. However, it has a slightly oversized fit, so if you are between sizes, consider choosing the size below.

7. Sara Pendant

Sezane Sara Pendant


I love how dainty and sweet this pendant is. It’s great for layering and works with any ensemble!

8. Will Jacket

Sezane Will Jacket


Last but not least, we have the Will jacket, a versatile piece that’s nice to keep handy for a chilly night out on a boat or at a baseball game. I love how this jacket breaks in over time giving it a relaxed yet refined look.

Fit Notes: This jacket fits true to size, but size up if you prefer a roomier fit.

What pieces are you looking to fill out your summer closet? Happy shopping!
