What we've learned from Maggie Wilson is the importance of purchasing classic pieces that we can wear over and over. A deep dive into her IG grid showed us that her tropical chic wardrobe's foundation is composed of well-made basics: Solid-colored tops, breezy dresses, and neutral-colored bottoms. Sometimes, she adds color and fun prints to her outfits just to make things interesting.
If you're aiming for a "classic meets forever summer" aesthetic, then let these looks from Maggie guide you.
1. Bodysuits are Forever

Maggie's outfit below perfectly shows how clothing can work wonders for flaunting your figure, like cinching your waist or highlighting your best assets. Her outfit lets her waist be the focial point, giving her a balanced yet sexy look.
6. Moody Casual
Maggie is such a big believer of tonal dressing, as seen on this outfit that uses black and gray. In case you aren't aware, tonal dressing is when you mix shades that belong to the same color family.
Just as much as Maggie loves neutrals, she loves experimenting with color-blocking, too. Here, she mixed pink and yellow—two pretty shades that can cheer up anyone. She balanced her look with beige and camel accessories.
