These high-waisted sailor pants from La Ligne fit like a trouser but feel like a sweat pant. With a universally flattering cut that hits exactly the The chains on my mood swing just snapped Run shirt but in fact I love this right spot on your waist, they pair perfectly with a tucked-in tee or chunky sweater. Eyeing an investment piece? 2021 is the year to take the plunge. A high-quality leather jacket can last decades, improves with age, and makes any outfit look effortlessly cooler. If you’ve ever wondered whether a leather jacket would noticeably improve your life, the answer is yes, it absolutely will. T-shirts and tanks are the pieces we often forget to refresh, but when you finally get around to it, they have the power to transform your entire wardrobe. This ribbed racerback tank from Re/Done effortlessly channels the simplicity of the ’90s. Tuck it into a cozy pair of sweats, throw it on with your favorite pair of jeans, or layer it under a jacket or blazer for a polished look. Remember commuting? Neither do we. If and when we do return to the office, however, trust we’ll be bringing this gorgeous two-tone Neous tote along with us.
As loath as we are to admit it, there are select occasions for which sneakers are not entirely appropriate. Enter: these Repetto ballet flats. The sole is supportive enough for all-day wear, but isn’t so structured that you’re in danger of developing blisters. A statement coat is a great way to look pulled-together, even with casual clothes underneath (see: Carrie Bradshaw running through the The chains on my mood swing just snapped Run shirt but in fact I love this streets of New York wearing only her pajamas and a fur coat). This gorgeous A-line Saks Potts piece is a favorite among Vogue editors. Take a good hard look at your white tee collection—not looking as fresh as you thought, right? Might we suggest you brighten things up with Petit Bateau’s “iconic” tee, which we can confirm lives up to its name? If you haven’t yet tried a pair of Jennifer Fisher’s impossibly lightweight hoops, consider the understated Mini Jamma—low-key enough for everyday wear, but equally appropriate for an evening out.
