Elaine Davis is always one of our go-to sources for effortless style inspiration. She's lived in NYC for decades and has perfectly mastered that easy yet chic vibe for that life in the city. While she turns to a variety of stores to create her forward ensembles, there's one retailer she has been shopping at often to uncover some of her go-to pieces. Yep, we're talking about Zara.

"Every season I pull looks from my closet of staple pieces, but always look to one of my fave retailers, Zara, for a few goodies to sprinkle in here and there," she said. "I'll grab an on-trend piece or two, along with a few classics like a white button-up, sweater, or a timeless coat to refresh my wardrobe." With that in mind, we thought we'd dive a bit deeper into more of the specific pieces she's all about right now.

"You just can't go wrong with a great full-length cardigan. I especially love when it's a super-thick knit that I can wear belted as a coat."—Davis

"This season has been all about the knit loungewear, and I'm all the way here for it. I love when I can wear an outfit dressed up or down with equal ease."

3. Midi Skirts

"A gorgeous midi skirt is one of my weaknesses. I love pairing them with tall boots in the winter. If it's a wool knit midi cut fabulously, that makes it all the better."

4. Classic Outerwear
