I'm a Fashion Director—These Are the Most Popular Wardrobe Staples


(Image credit: @ttomasihillThe Yes)

Discovering new trends and learning about style from different perspectives makes fashion so inspiring and exciting. So when I had the chance to chat with industry veteran Taylor Tomasi Hill, I went for it. Tomasi Hill is currently the creative and fashion director of The Yes, an AI-powered shopping platform.

The app actually uses your personal taste to provide daily shopping recommendations for you specifically. You start by taking a quiz so the app can learn more about your likes, dislikes, sizing information, and so on. From there, you'll uncover a feed that highlights the latest and greatest for you. When you see something you like, you can click "Yes" or "No." The more you engage and experience, the more the app will be able to learn and customize even more options for you.

With all that in mind, we thought it could be intriguing to learn about some of the most engaged-with product categories on the app. Specifically, we wanted to gain further insight into the wardrobe staples Tomasi Hill is seeing customers gravitate toward the most at the moment. These items also happen to be front-runners in her offering because each is highly versatile and forward.

If you keep scrolling, you'll find visual inspiration and testimonials from Tomasi Hill along with a smattering of picks if one of the go-tos from The Yes catches your eye.

Light-Wash Jeans

"If you're thinking denim, think light! Light washes are trending right now and our biggest seller in the denim category. I love it for summer, especially because it feels light and fresh. I wear mine cropped. The DL1961 Bridget Boot High-Rise just might be the holy grail for those looking for lightweight summer denim that magically flatters. I find myself reaching for this pair all the time."

Statement Sandals

"I love sandals that have a cool attitude and work with everything—literally from denim cutoffs to sundresses. (Not that I personally wear dresses all that often, but hey, what if I did!) The Labucq Boomer Tan Sandals are one of my faves because they're super chunky and ground your look. And I love these Loewe sandals with their architectural shape. It's like a wearable work of art! Shoe sales have been climbing, and I think it's obvious why. I, for one, am excited to be wearing them out of the house."

Bold Bags (A "More Is More" Approach)

"Layering bags is a styling trick—a lifesaver for busy days with lots on the agenda. Toss a small pouch (or two!) in a larger carryall and then you've got all kinds of versatility. Pouches are huge right now; we've seen a 300% increase in this category at The Yes. A chic pouch, like one of my favorites from Bottega Veneta, holds just the essentials: phone, lip balm, wallet, hand sanitizer… The Clare V. Poche is another fave because you can use it as a pouch or as a crossbody. Throw them in a big-ass tote that lugs everything else you might need. I like ones that add personality and fun. Cool stripes and Parisian chic with the Clare V. Market Tote or classic checks and bold color from Zara are very of-the-moment."

Colorful Swimsuits

"This is going to sound like fashion heresy, but black is taking the back seat right now to color. Green, blue, pink, red… These are the new stars. Now, no hue can permanently upstage chic noir, but I take a playful approach to style, so I love seeing brights take the stage. This one-piece Everlane swimsuit is the ideal shade of poppy, always one of my most beloved colors. With a simple square-neck silhouette, this one-piece is a best seller for another reason, too. One-pieces are currently the most popular in the swim category."

Modern Dresses

"Dress sales have skyrocketed, more than doubling in the past month. Clearly, people are getting out and dressing for the occasion. Like I said, I wear dresses sparingly, but right now, I'm loving modern silhouettes that play with volume. Twirling skirts worn a little oversize look effortlessly cool. Rachel Comey's Casa Dress is breezy perfection with a great tie detail in the back. Another option is the Ganni Tent Midi with a feminine-but-not-too-girly floral print. So cute, right? It's enough to change my mind about dresses."
