Summer’s here and it’s finally time to re-create the chicest outfits from The White Lotus worn by Aubrey Plaza’s character Harper, just in time for summer and packing holiday capsule wardrobes.
Like so many people, I was obsessed with The White Lotus when it came out and was just as obsessed with the styling. The standout wardrobe for me was for Aubrey Plaza’s character Harper, to such an extent I saved every outfit with plans of re-creating them for summer.
Her style is a mix of minimalist quiet luxury meets preppy, with nautical references thrown into the mix. From numerous oversized linen shirts to sleek black evening dresses. Every outfit looks thrown together in a carefree way, reading effortlessly chic without even trying. The perfect formula, it works out, for a holiday capsule wardrobe.
There are her poolside cover-ups, her daytime looks for exploring local towns and then her dressy dinner outfits in the evening: all making up a holiday capsule that you can easily re-create, whether you’re in dreamy Sicily like Harper or travelling to another hot location this summer. So, if it’s the expensive holiday look you’re after, on a budget, these are the best high street pieces I could find to replicate her White Lotus outfits.
Stripe shirts + shorts
Striped shirts are all over the high street this summer. A coincidence, I think not, thanks to this classic White Lotus look.
Oversized linen shirts + crinkle swimsuits
Oversized linen shirts are the perfect low-key cover up on holiday. Create a colourful contrast like Harper with a crinkle swimsuit, whether you pick the investment Hunza G swimsuit or one of the high street’s best alternatives.
Black summer dresses
A classic LBD (little black dress) is a classic for a reason, as Harper conveys in this sophisticated and confident look.
White summer dresses
Keeping to a monochrome theme is another trick for fast-tracking your way to a holiday capsule wardrobe, so add a white summer dress for day time like this one from Zara that you can dress up by evening or wear as a cover up at any glam beach club.
Linen dresses + scarves
Elevate a linen dress with a chic mini scarf around your neck, just look to Harper for your holiday inspo.
