Outfit Repeat: The 8 Simple Looks We Wear More Than Any Others

While everyone has their own version of "the perfect outfit" based on personal style, the general consensus is often one that's easy, chic, and comfortable. When we (the WWW editors) uncover a top-notch ensemble that falls within this realm, we often put the 'fit to work and wear it often. It's these looks that essentially become our uniforms in that we repeat them on a regular basis thanks to their simple and forward nature.

And to be honest, there are actually a few specific outfit formulas we collectively seem to wear more than anything else right now. Yep, these looks are all pretty much comprised of elevated basics, timeless staples, and a few trendier items. If you're intrigued and want a bit of outfit inspo, keep scrolling to check out the ensembles we're wearing all the time right now. You'll also uncover a smattering of shopping picks in case you're also interested in adding a fresh item or two into your wardrobe.

"Jeans, ankle boots, a basic top, and a great blazer is the outfit combo I wear literally all the time. It's failsafe, trend-proof, and works for almost any occasion from the office (well, when that was a thing) to out to dinner. Right now, I'm obsessed with leather outerwear, so this sleek blazer makes the whole look feel current." — Anna LaPlaca, associate editor

"Some form of a camel coat is pretty much glued to my body if it's below 60 degrees outside. And I almost always have the same thing on underneath it: jeans, a sweater or cute top, and loafers or boots. Changing up the top or sweater situation keeps me from getting bored with it." — Allyson Payer, senior fashion editor

"I'm into an outfit with leather pants, a turtleneck, and ankle boots. The great thing about leather pants is that they can be dressed up with a heeled ankle boot, or down with a combat boot and it's you can style them with just about any type of top—basically, it's the hero piece of any wardrobe." — Jasmine Fox-Suliaman, editor

"I'm all about a cardigan with a white tee and jeans. Easy, peasy. I own a bunch of different cardigans, including chunky cable-knit, tweed, colorful cashmere, and longline cardigans. If I feel like adding anything extra to this simple outfit formula, I'd go with a gold necklace and a cute bag." — Erin Fitzpatrick, senior news editor

"I know a suit seems like a look with a capital L, but they honestly are way easier than any outfit where I have to think about pairing a top and a bottom. Matching sets are the simplest way to get dressed, and I think a suit is the epitome of a high impact, low effort look." — Kat Collings, editor in chief

"On any given day you can find me in a pair of comfy sweatpants, on oversize button-down, and sneakers—practical, comfortable, and easy to work from home in. Now that it's getting cooler I may throw an oversize sweater vest over my button-down for a casual-cool touch." — Judith Jones, market editor

"While I do feel great when I get dressed up, I also love slipping into a sweatpant look while I'm working from home. Lately, I've been sticking to a monochrome outfit and leaning into the 'oversize everything' look Hailey Bieber has helped popularize this year. That means upsized sweatpants paired with an oversize blazer plus a pair of sneakers and a polished bag to tie it all together." — Kristen Nichols, senior fashion editor

This is one of my go-to outfits. The beige sweater feels very of-the-moment—especially teamed with comfy joggers. A trusty moto jacket completes the look.
