Creating stylish outfits is all about investing in versatile pieces and knowing how to rock them. One simple piece can elevate your look in seconds. Everyone desires pieces that are low maintenance but can still be worn in various ways. One thing about me, I will take my most versatile pieces and remix them until I can't remix them anymore. Mostly because they are dope and I want to wear them all the time and their versatility allow for multiple variations.
As we try to prepare for the new season (whenever it actually happens), we must search for wardrobe staples that will transcend time and remain multifaceted. We have curated a mini-catalogue of pieces your wardrobe needs.
The blazer just may be the most versatile piece on this list. Why? Because you can literally wear it with anything and it comes in an array of colors and styles. I also love that it's HR-approved for the days spent in the office but it's also street style-approved.
