Versatility is a Virtue.

The subjectivity of fashion has always been one of the many drives of the undying industry. Whether you consider your style to be sporty, indie, preppy or anything in between, it’s no surprise that these versatile items are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe.

Denim Jackets

If you don’t own a denim jacket now is the time to invest in one. This bad boy will come in handy all year round and is the ultimate staple piece that goes with any outfit.

Consider the structure and length of your jacket. A waist length jacket with a bit of structure will make an otherwise basic outfit look a little more put-together. For a more casual look, opt for oversized.

Culottes

We all love a reliable pair of skinny jeans, but this season we’re letting our thighs breathe and making way for culottes. Say goodbye to the skinny jean shimmy!

Different fabrics and material can elevate your look. Denim and linen are great for casual outfits, while polyester and lycra blends are perfect for special events or corporate wear.

Sneakers

Newsflash - not all sneakers are made for running! With the rise in demand for practical and comfortable footwear, the Carrie Bradshaw Shoe Closet of your dreams doesn’t have to only consist of red bottoms.

Consider the silhouette of your ensemble when selecting your footwear. While chunky dad shoes are a great statement piece, a slim shoe will bring back shape to your bottom half when needed.
