During the weekdays, this lizard-embossed Whistles tote has enough room for everything from gym clothes to your lunch. And when you want to lighten up on the weekend, Zara's cross-body looks pulled-together yet casual while Clare Vivier's silver clutch adds shine to any outfit.
If you're not into joining the flocks of people in Canada Goose this winter, here's an equally warm alternative. Made with an ultrathick liner that you can remove, this Arrivals parka is also wind- and waterproof.
If you need to wear them to see every day, why not invest in a high-quality pair that gives you the air of authority? And you can never have too many classic sunglasses. These Warby Parkers were made in collaboration with Maiyet and feature an elegant oyster trim.
Are you curious about the ugly-shoe trend but not yet fully convinced? This Zara pair features a stacked heel and squared-off toe but still looks classic enough that you won't feel too far outside your comfort zone.
Streamline your morning routine even more by splurging on pieces that you can wear day-in day-out — without worrying that they'll turn your skin green. This delicate gold-bar necklace looks great peeking out of a shirt and Hirotaka's earrings are the perfect size to perk up your face without being distracting.
& Other Stories collaborated with stylist and street-style star Ada Kokosar on a capsule collection that features great basics with special touches. This tunic top has slits up the sides and on the sleeves to make it more interesting than your standard top.
The trick to these skirts is that they have little interesting details that make them look like they cost way more than they actually do. COS's skirt features elegant pleating while the Trademark option has a sliver-thin fringe trim. They both will match everything in your closet.
It's always tricky to find a nice leather jacket that doesn't cost a fortune. This Whistles one is just under $500, so it's still a bit of a splurge, but the stitching and leather quality make it a smart buy if you're in the market.
No season feels more like a fresh start than fall. Maybe it's all the new clothes in stores or memories of heading back to school, but suddenly you want to take a long, hard look at your closet. Before you go crazy and decide you need to buy all the latest trendy pieces, take a step back and reassess your wardrobe. The smartest upgrade comes in the form of refreshing your basics in favor of new staples.
Is that wool coat on its last legs? Trade it in for a sleek camel topper from Uniqlo or a crisp white wrap style from Mango — both look far more expensive than they are. Need a new white shirt that goes with everything? COS has a longer tunic style that pairs nicely with jeans or trousers. From boots to bags to lingerie, click ahead to see the best new basics of the season.
