The Most Stylish Dressers I Know All Have These New Staples in Their Closets

I have a pretty hefty folder of outfit ideas in my Saved folder on IG. Every now and then, I’ll go through the assortment to identify trending pieces. Today, I thought I’d bring you a curation of the items just about every one of the stylish dressers I know or follow seems to own. The pieces in question all fall into the “modern staples” category. These are finds that could be considered elevated basics thanks to their highly versatile nature. Essentially, fashion people use the items as foundational pieces to create their effortless silhouettes.

As a preview, one of the staples just happens to be the trusty oversize button-down shirt. This is one key piece that has quickly become a go-to for many. There’s more on that piece and others if you keep scrolling below. You’ll also uncover inspired shopping picks for each in case you too want to add one of the items into your wardrobe.

1. Sweater-Vest

While the tailored vest is also trending, the sweater-vest is still a staple either layered like with this ensemble or worn on its own.

Take a cue from our editorial director, and team a sweater-vest with a forward maxi skirt.

2. Oversize Shirt

I basically see every one of my favorite fashion follows style an oversize shirt in various ways, like with this outfit featuring comfy lounge pants.

A light-blue silhouette is quite chic with trusty straight-leg jeans.

3. Striped Sweater

As I showcased here, the striped sweater is quickly becoming a go-to for many to be worn with a range of pieces.

Consider an especially oversize sweater with loose jeans for a relaxed vibe.

4. Modern Suit

All hail the modern suit for a sophisticated and elevated vibe. The beauty of that ideal find is that you can wear it all together (like this one with the trendy vest, blazer, and trousers) or you can mix and match the pieces.

Pair that favorite suit with a white tee to keep it easy yet polished.

5. Knit Dress

You can't deny the power of a throw-on-and-go knit dress. Go for a unique style (the one-shoulder is chic), add your favorite pair of shoes, and you're set.

A cutout midi dress is absolutely gorgeous with heels.

6. Maxi Coat

In terms of outerwear, the maxi coat is still one of the most popular styles. It makes any outfit feel sleek and high-end.

A longline coat takes a jeans-and-sweater look to the next level.

7. Leather Pants

Whether faux or not, leather trousers are a staple for so many. This look is quite elevated with just the simple black tee.

This ensemble is no-fuss and posh with the ribbed knit and trousers.
