The $15 Basic This Fashion Director Has Convinced Us to Buy in Bulk

Dressing for a full month of international Fashion Week shows doesn't sound like it would be a tough gig, but trust us, it is. Finding outfits that not only look super polished and chic, but also accommodate the logisticals (like making sure outfits are both suitcase-friendly and can be worn on repeat) is an epic task. But we've cracked Vogue Australia's fashion director Christine Centenera's go-to basic that is so good, we're wondering how we went this long without it. It's the wardrobe staple you're about to buy in bulk—ribbed tank tops.

Centenera has been styling both black and white ribbed tank tops with classic workwear pieces. She's kept accessories minimal—oversized sunglasses and a simple watch—and added interest with a pair of new-season shoes. While we haven't yet figured out the exact brand Centenera has been wearing (we'll keep you posted if we do), we found some similar options that you can shop for under $15.

Keep scrolling to check out how Centenera has been styling the tank top through Fashion Week and shop the look.

My vintage red tartan jacket. It's timeless and bold. I love wearing it with a red matte lipstick.
