Crisp with a slight sheen, Carven’s high-waisted woven raffia shorts make you think about basic summer textures in a new way. They feel simple but look special — and look especially good when paired with an unusual ribbed cotton shell, like this asymmetrical option from Zara. Top off the look with an offbeat choker in a sea-glass-green hue and Loeffler Randall’s edgy-looking (but comfortable) gladiator sandals. Then try a rich plum-colored polish on your finger and toes.
