Wearable, anti-viral fashion was one of the most talked-about trends from the F/W 23 runway shows at fashion month. In short, a return to closet staples that are intended to be worn day to day, instead of the logo-heavy pieces and flashy designs that were prevalent in past seasons. Some of these wearable pieces included polished suiting and sleek separates, while another part included back to the basic staples such as leggings, hoodies, tank tops, and T-shirts—all styled in directional ways that make them look elevated and cool.

Miu Miu proved that the right layering can make legging and cardigan looks feel intentional, Bottega Veneta and Ferragamo ushered in fresh ways to style a simple tank top, and Gucci debuted the easy denim look that is primed to be in every fashion person's arsenal. Ahead, see the five outfits with staples that are runway-approved and shop the pieces to start wearing them now.

If you wear leggings, add some layers as spotted at Miu Miu's F/W 23 collection. Start with a white T-shirt and add a crew-neck sweater on top—the exposed white tee adds a simple yet impactful detail. Then, top the look with a hoodie, outerwear, and sneakers.

Ferragamo struck the ultimate balance of proportions with this look, pairing a snug bodysuit with wide-leg, tailored trousers. Sleek accessories, including leather mules, a glossy bag, and chunky earrings pull it together.

If you have a cardigan sitting in your closet, take some inspiration from Miu Miu for how to wear it. Start by buttoning it up, except for the top and bottom buttons. Then, add low-rise trousers, loafers, eyeglasses, and a leather belt.


Tank Tops

Bottega Veneta continues to include a white tank top and jeans look on the runway each season, albeit with some new tweaks each time. For the F/W 23 collection, a baby-pink top tied around the waist is the key styling piece.

A crisp button-down shirt and oversize blazer are the perfect pairing for slouchy denim. Finish the look with a leather belt and bag to add some polished accessories.
