I've Been a Stylist for 10 Years—These Are the Brands I Always Wear

When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Constance Wu, and Diane Kruger or writing a best-selling book, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

As I’ve mentioned before, the one outfit I wear on repeat and that describes my style the best would be jeans and a T-shirt with either a blazer or a black leather jacket. It’s the easiest way to look professional and polished without trying too hard. In the same vein, today I’m sharing the brands I’ve been wearing for well over 10 years. These are the brands I can always count on for wardrobe classics and new pieces to update my go-to outfit combination. Whether you’re looking for investment items or everyday basics, I recommend adding the below brands to the top of your next shopping list. Shop all the brands you’ll find in my NYC closet below.
