If we’re looking for those effortlessly chic outfit ideas, Vanessa Oblinsky’s feed is a go-to. The French Canadian lifestyle blogger was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, and now resides in San Diego, California, with her three sons and husband. It’s that laid-back California vibe mixed with the sleek French sartorial sensibilities that makes her personal style so covetable.

So on that note, we thought we’d tap Oblinsky for insight into the specific pieces she relies on to create forward silhouettes. What you'll notice is that all of the items in question are easy yet still impossibly chic.

Ahead, you’ll uncover the seven-piece wardrobe she swears by, complete with visual inspiration and a debriefing on why each item is a must from her point of view. And if you’re shopping at the moment, you’ll also uncover some product recommendations.
