My Favorite Things

Meredith Melling’s daily uniform is chic, simple, and, well, uniform. After years of trend hopping, the former Vogue editor decided to transcend fads and stick to one timeless wardrobe stable—stripes. Founding La Ligne in 2015 with two friends, Melling realized her vision of “pared down, not fussy, not precious, French-girl dressing, just a striped sweater and a pair of jeans.” With one growing brand, four kids, three rescue dogs, and a politically minded husband all under her watch, Melling keeps it classic and comfortable. She shares her top picks of the moment

Sea Star Beachwear


Men’s Mariner Slip-On in Dark Denim

“The beaches of Martha’s Vineyard in the summer can be quite rocky and my kids are terrain immune, so I always wear rubber Birkenstocks or Sea Star’s waterproof espadrilles to keep up. ”


From $240

Brushed Flannel Bamboo Duvet

“We have Kassatex bedding throughout the house but this is the first year I discovered their beach towels thanks to Instagram (@kassatex) and Harry Styles.”



Blue-Stripe Throw

“When I started having children with an adventurous outdoorsy guy, I realized the importance of an all purpose blanket. We keep these in our apartment and in the back of our SUV and use them for everything - warmth, cushioning, portable “dining table”, dog bed, super hero cape, you name it.”
