I'm still figuring out this whole "Adulting" thing, and I'm learning along the way. There's plenty to it, but since my job is as a fashion editor, I'm starting with taking a look at my closet and seeing what could be different. While I still love fun pieces and firmly believe that growing older does not mean wearing fewer trends and losing one's self of style, I did notice the lack of basics and elevated pieces in my wardrobe. I needed to get my hands on staples that could help me build outfits more effortlessly. Still being on a budget, I looked towards H&M, Mango, Zara, and H&M, and they most certainly delivered.
Luckily for you, after scrolling for what seemed like hours, I curated all my picks below, and trust me, they're good. If you're in the same boat as me, or simply just want to give your basic an upgrade, then you've come to the right place. From oversized blazers to staple accessories, you'll have a sophisticated wardrobe that'll prepare you for any occasion ahead.
