From polished blazers to wear everywhere from the office to weekend brunch to clean white sneakers that go with virtually everything in your closet, below are the five classic wardrobe investments you should never get rid of.
Even if you live somewhere that's less than frigid, you can still work fun, lighthearted accessories into your winter wardrobe. Some of my current favorites are rainbow stripes, berets, and anything shearling.
There's no doubt that leather pants may not be new on the fashion scene, but they reached an all-time high of wear this past year. I'm not surprised, because they make any outfit look expensive and are the perfect alternative to jeans when the temperature drops.
While it’s been a quiet year for the fashion world, this season has unveiled seriously bold and stylish designs. Large and in-charge blazers, bold blue bags, and sleek face masks dominated Fashion Weeks over the last few weeks. This year, some of the most influential decades have played a huge role in this season's looks.
It's not always an easy feat to look and feel our most stylish in the throes of winter (bulky coats and dark, drab hues can become mundane pretty quickly). So to get us sartorially inspired for the frigid months ahead, I tapped into New York–based fashion stylist Ryan Gale, who is one of my absolute favorite fashion people to follow for her effortlessly cool style and the brilliantly creative ways she puts together an outfit. She loves mixing vintage finds with designer pieces and layering them to perfection.
No matter who you're shopping for this holiday season or how well you know said person (perhaps, for instance, they birthed and raised you), you might experience that moment of sheer panic, wondering what the heck to buy them as a present. If it's kind of hard to pin their personality down to a 'type' (ex: a self-care lover or a fashionista) you might want to take a different route, getting them something simple yet special, worthy of a queen, a gamechanger, or, yes, a badass.
