Not to sound like a broken record, but when building a wardrobe you love, there’s nothing more important than having an arsenal of staples you can rely on for everyday wear. But if you’re anything like me, you loathe the idea of looking basic. I don’t want any boring old staple, but I also don’t want to look like I’m wearing the same fashion aesthetic as every other person on social media. Yes, I’ll admit I love spotting a trend just as much as any other editor, but I find myself being anti-trend more and more every day—I desire a wardrobe that’s practical and packs a punch. But if that sounds like an oxymoron or generally unattainable, then allow me to introduce you to the concept of luxurious staples. It’s a micro-trend that’s been bubbling up among the fashion set because of the desire for pieces that can stand the test of the trend cycle but still feel like they’re trendy.
Of course, finding pieces that are both of the time and timeless is no easy feat, but it’s one I feel our very own Who What Wear Collection does well. So ahead, I’ve highlighted the luxe staples to shop right now, along with shared tips on what to opt for when you want to add a little glamour to your everyday basics. Consider this your crash course in looking caviar rich on a ramen budget.
