When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. Erlanger is also the official Armi Captain at the luxury rental and styling platform Armarium. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

As a celebrity stylist, there’s always a few pieces that I would recommend to anyone looking to update their style by only purchasing a few key pieces. From my experience, having these wardrobe basics gives many of my clients the ability to dress perfectly for any occasion. These pieces can be used to complete any look and make it easy for anyone to create a chic look. Scroll down to find out more and to shop my picks for each category.

Trendy Sneakers

From trendy chunky sneakers to simple white options, everyone should have a pair in their wardrobe. Having a chic and trendy pair in your closet is an investment that can be worn often and is a perfect way to complete a casual look.

Chic Athleisure

Although this may seem like an unconventional recommendation, I find that having on-trend athleisure is a great way to perfect your weekend wardrobe. Buying high-quality leggings and workout tops with beautiful details gives my clients great looks for more casual outings while still being on trend. Having a few key athleisure pieces in your wardrobe is a useful addition for anyone in the fashion crowd.
