We love a look that strikes the perfect balance of stylish and inspired. And while we tirelessly scope the street-style scene for sartorial genius, it’s sometimes easier to bring it back to the basics, particularly on days when you’re running out the door behind schedule. By utilizing mainstay pieces like T-shirts, midi skirts and nude heels (and, of course, denim), you can create a host of gorgeous ensembles to get you through. Here, six fail-safe and flattering outfit combos to rely on for the workweek and the weekend.
Style, Wear, Repeat
A sleek waistcoat adds polish to a simple tank dress and slides.
A crew-neck tee brings a casual feel to a ruffled midi skirt and mules.
Slim trousers feel fresh against an oversize button-down and pumps.
Breton stripes are eternally chic with high-waisted crop flares and pretty platforms.
A ribbed tank and embellished block heels are cool with structured culottes.
A bohemian blouse and bright, feminine flats dress up cutoff shorts.
