6 Fail-Safe Outfit Combos That Always Look Chic

Share

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.
