The Secrets to a Versatile Wardrobe
Love is an outfit you can wear to literally anything
When our day includes both a casual lunch meeting and a can’t-miss dinner party (plus a dose of cardio in between), we love a good ensemble that can do it all. But frankly, crafting a truly versatile look isn’t easy. That’s why we’ve done it for you. Here are four adaptable outfits that can take you from day to night with a simple swap of accessories.
From Brunch With the In-Laws To a Wine Tasting With the Girls
Wide-leg trousers are a great way to make a comfortable outfit look sophisticated. Team them with a neutral purse and pumps to impress the parents, then switch to standout baubles and booties for a wine-fueled night with girlfriends. (At least three compliments, guaranteed.)
Get the look: Kit and Ace trousers ($298), Lanvin pumps ($645), Kit and Ace poncho ($228), M2malletier bag ($1,640), Vita Fede earrings ($275), Everlane booties ($263), Eddie Borgo bag ($990), Of Rare Origin earrings ($1,120)
From a Power Walk In the Park To Gallery Hopping Downtown
Stock up on white tops—they mesh well with almost everything and will get you far this season. Start the day with West Coast narrow-leg stretch trousers (they feel just like leggings) and a classic V-neck T-shirt for low-impact cardio. Then throw on a boxy blouse for a night of high-impact art.
Get the look: Kit and Ace V-neck shirt ($78), Want Les Essentiels backpack ($795), Nike sneakers ($90), Kit and Ace pants ($148), Kit and Ace blouse ($198), Sandro booties ($570), Nars Lip Glide ($26), Stella McCartney clutch ($895)
From Attending a Client Lunch To Picking-Up Your Local CSA
A monochromatic look is the easiest palette to dress up or down. To achieve this style, look for shades of gray and add sophisticated touches, like oxblood Mary Janes (the shoes of the season). Meanwhile, flats and a patchwork crossbody ready the same outfit for a casual afternoon of sorting through the local squash selection.
From Leading the PTA Meeting To Visiting the Pumpkin Patch
Did you know your neckline can make a world of difference? Ease into sweater season with a mock-turtleneck tee. A boyfriend-fit wool coat helps the look feel buttoned-up, and straight-leg trousers compliment both chic slide loafers and sporty sneakers alike. Just swap your silver lariat for a cool silk bandana before the cider sipping commences.
Get the look: Kit and Ace top ($88), Kit and Ace trousers ($198),Theory loafers ($395), Kit and Ace jacket ($398), Vita Fede lariat ($375), Kit and Ace jacket ($448), Warby Parker eyeglasses ($145), Common Projects sneakers ($450), Mary Katrantzou scarf ($180)
