Lately, I’ve noticed an uptick in the number of classic outfits landing on the fashion set. I attribute it to the impact the pandemic has had on our closets, with less occasions to wear trendy items and a larger focus on buying great staples and investment pieces. That isn’t to say that trendy fashion is fading away—micro miniskirts, oversize leather jackets, Y2K style, high-impact colors, and a fresh crop of micro-trends are in full force for spring.
No matter where you land on the trend adoption spectrum, though, it’s always a great idea to have an arsenal of timeless looks on standby. With a small collection of wardrobe capsule pieces, you can create a number of polished, easy looks that work season after season. It all comes down to some simple styling ideas. Ahead, the best classic outfits to wear now.
