For minimalists and street style stars, laidback tailoring has always been a longstanding favorite. Given the continual casualization of fashion, this style that marries comfort and chicness offers a significant compromise beyond the binary of streetwear and couture, much to every fashion girl’s delight.
Sure, a power suit will never lose its appeal, but when made with a soft cut and lightweight fabrics, we can’t think of a reason why you won’t seal a million-dollar deal or turn heads in a serene paradise, whichever you’re in the mood for. And since it’s summertime, we’re giving tailoring a seasonal upgrade to let everyone do a double-take on your fit from 9 to 5 and beyond.
Each of Aura’s classic pieces is sustainably handmade and crafted to give a feminine twist to your ultimate tailored aesthetic. It’s an ode to embracing a look of boldness and courage.
From the boardroom to the beach, shop our edit on breezy tailored pieces to complete your summer wardrobe below.
