Brand Spotlight: Atea(Source: Atea Striped Racer Dress, $165; Button Down Shirt, $225; Stretch Skinny Pants, $265; Crawford Bodysuit, $175; Neoprene Mini Skirt, $315)Here’s where we’d wear Atea's luxe, pared-down essentials:
1. To work
2. To rooftop drinks
3. To Sunday brunch
4. Everywhere

And that's the genius of this new-to-the-US British brand: it specializes in the sort of easy yet refined classics that are destined to become wardrobe VIPs. But we're not talking about your garden-variety basics. Atea's entirely neutral-hued collection boasts the sort of slouchy-cool appeal that we're always admiring on European cool girls like Charlotte Gainsbourg. These looks are the essence of effortless.

In other words, there isn't a single piece we couldn't imagine working into our summer (and fall) wardrobes immediately.
