We get in touch with Susie Wright on the regular for top-notch shopping inspiration. She certainly knows her stuff, as she has a fashion résumé that includes work as a stylist and as a former Nordstrom buyer. On that note, she once shared with us a few basics she thinks are worthy investments because they work for everyone. Well, we wanted to continue that conversation on wardrobe staples. This time around, we tapped her for insights into the fresh and fashion-forward basics she's wearing on repeat at the moment.
In fact, Wright actually mentioned that her closet wouldn't be the same without these elevated basics that have a little something extra. The items included in the curation are all versatile, and as a result, she styles them in many different ways to create her standout looks.
Below, you'll find Wright's go-to list of next-level basics along with outfit references and inspired product recommendations.
"You should never be without a black blazer, and a slightly oversize style is everywhere. Wear it to a meeting, over a dress, or with denim and sneakers on the weekend, and you'll always feel put-together."
"Pretty much everyone needs a great moto jacket. Black is the obvious choice, but adding a color gives you more outfit options, too. I especially love them over dresses—so chic and works any time of year."
