When we first laid eyes on LA brand Staud's cool, modern collection after its launch late last year, it was basically love at first sight—of smart-but-sexy cutouts, zippered jumpsuits, and cropped flares. Now that a new season has arrived, the label, which was co-created by Reformation vet Sarah Staudinger, has not disappointed in continuing to offer pieces worthy of worship.
Staud's spring collection has so many items we're coveting (for example this colorblocked minidress and this blush bucket bag) but it's this lightweight culottes/crop top combo that's got us seriously daydreaming. As a duo, these linen blend pieces look pulled together, yet totally effortless, but you can also break them up to mix in with other seasonal staples like denim cutoffs or a classic white tee. Such versatility makes them perfect for planning your next getaway wardrobe. Coachella anyone?
And in case you needed more evidence that this is the cool girl's spring/summer uniform, here's megababe Emily Ratajkowski modeling the set in Rust. We think we proved our point.
