8 Trend-Free Outfit Ideas We're Stealing From Celebrities

You may recall that about a month ago, Meghan Markle descended upon NYC. And just like the old days, everyone lost it over everything she wore. One of those outfits was completely trend-free. She doesn't live a trend-free life, but this particular outfit was as classic as it gets. And it got us thinking about trend-free outfits in general.

Keeping up with the trends every season can admittedly be exhausting. Here at Who What Wear, we do our best to make it a little easier, but we get it. Sometimes you just want to keep it simple. Celebs clearly feel the same, as there are lots of trend-free celeb outfit examples out there in addition to Markle. But as a disclaimer, we agree that some of the outfits below contain some trendy elements (like Mindy Kaling's sparkly Area sweatshirt), but you can easily swap those items out for something even more simple.

Scroll on for everything you need to create eight easy, trend-free outfits.
