Shopping for Summer With Amazon’s Head of Fashion Direction

It’s Amazon Prime Day and who better to help us navigate the best of the best on the behemoth online retailer than Vogue-alumn and Amazon’s Head of Fashion Direction, Sally Singer. Known for her editor’s eye and her sense of what’s next, Singer brings a fashion perspective to the site, which has been busy expanding its Luxury Stores which stocks the likes of Marina Moscone, Roland Mouret, and more.

As we all know, shopping Amazon is as easy as one click but finding what you want is a slightly different story. And so we asked Singer to point out some of her favorite fashion finds just in time for the summer. “I see Prime Day as the perfect opportunity to replenish my summer essentials, those key pieces that always need to be refreshed when temperatures soar and life gets sweaty,” she says.

Without further ado, Singer’s summertime, easy-breezy closet staples, below:

The Belted Polo Dress 

Belted and with a flattering silhouette (specificity up top, generality below), these dresses are a tidy and efficient solution to everyday chic. Pair with wedges or sneaks.

The Perfect Leggings

For those of us who have signed up for big fall races (they are back! Yay!), we need hardworking leggings for pounding pavements for the finish lines. See you in Paris in October!

The Classic Tank

I learned long ago from (Vogue Fashion Director) Virginia Smith that a white tank, layered under absolutely any look, day or night, equals polish and nuance.

The Slip Skirt

The niftiest and sauciest slip to pair with a narrow tee, flats, and a crossbody, or layer under a floaty floral dress (for print on print action!). 

The Stripey Tee

Every day is better and jauntier when it contains a striped tee moment. Just my view, but I am sticking with it.

The Tie-Dye

Seventies tie-dye may be waning, but shibori—well, that’s another matter entirely!

The Dad Shirt

The perfect summer camp shirt, a little dadcore, a little Celine.

The Punchy-Printed Pajamas 

Cheerful cotton PJs—a little old-school and utterly charming—are my idea of everyday luxury.
