I can't help but indulge in the latest trends every season, but there is no breaking my love and loyalty for timeless pieces. While perusing my usual online haunts like Nordstrom, Shopbop, and H&M, I constantly keep an eye out for finds that play well with the mostly modern yet classic collection in my closet. My recent online deep dive led me to a plethora of pieces that fit the bill—31, in fact.

Below, you will find a roundup of cool finds that, for the most part, can be worn year-round. I'm talking about great button-downs, elevated blazers, stylish dresses, easy pants, and much more. Many of the pieces can easily be mixed and matched, which is a major plus if you're of the cost-per-wear mindset when shopping. Keep scrolling to shop my top anti-trend picks of the moment. It was hard not to add every last piece to my virtual carts.
