The "Boring" Outfit That Will Always Be a Favorite With Fashion Girls

Fashion people embrace a range of cool and creative uniforms. Some favorite looks—like those worn during fashion month—really push the boundaries with interesting layering techniques and the like. On the other end of the spectrum are those ensembles that are a bit more pared down. In regard to the latter, there’s actually one key look the style set adores that many could deem as “boring” given its simple nature, but it’s actually quite forward. Yep, we’re talking about the classic blazer, T-shirt or blouse, and trouser vibe.

Seemingly standard, this three-piece look is classic and timeless but feels fresh no matter the season. For example, a slouchy, textured blazer is cool right now topped over a white T-shirt and a printed pair of pants or distressed straight-leg jeans. To get a better sense of this fashion girl–favorite ensemble, keep scrolling to check out a few of our favorite looks, and shop the essentials in each to make the outfit your own.
