I tend to have an obsessive attraction to certain clothing items. If a particular item is comfortable, affordable AND available in multiple colors, it’s a bonafide hit for my closet.
This summer, we have a new winner: the drawstring pant.
It al started with this straw-colored pair from Maje, which were on sale earlier this summer. After wearing them for both work and weekend, I am convinced they go with absolutely everything. (I gave these a whirl with a crisp Brooks Brothers button-down and white Giulietta sandals, and it felt very fresh.)
Over the weekend, I opted for this bow tank — the symmetry seemed sweet.
After the success of the pale Maje trousers, I also got a version in basic black. These pants have a relaxed feel, but the tapered leg lends a current, polished vibe. (The last thing I want is to wear pajama pants in public.)

Do you have any favorite clothing items that you wear to death? I’d love to hear about them!
