The On-Trend Basics I Always Reach for When I Want My Outfit to Look Luxe

Luxury fashion basics



I’ve worked in fashion for over a decade now, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that a great-quality basic will take you far. Not only does it act as a chic backdrop to statement pieces, but when worn alone, a sleek staple can be striking in its simplicity and unquestionably elevate any outfit. But let’s face it: Not all basics are created equal. Everything from the fabric to the cut and detailing can make or break an outfit.

When I want my outfit to look luxe (which is basically all the time), I reach for a timeless piece from our namesake label, Who What Wear Collection. Okay, so I may be biased here, but even if I weren’t WWW's fashion market editor, it would still be one of my go-to places to shop for staples that strike the perfect balance of timeless and trendy thanks to its elevated, unique detailing and of-the-moment silhouettes. Below, I’m sharing some of my favorites that look seriously luxe and, best of all, don’t cost a fortune.
