Before you go on, no, this is not a story about jeans, white T-shirts, and tote bags. While those are all wardrobe staples, today, I am here to chat with you about pieces that once were wardrobe basics that are now “trendy.” These pieces managed to make themselves right at home again in the basics section of our closet. Last year, we saw the rise of a more “boring” way of dressing (bourgeoisie), which ended up altering the way women viewed style and outfit composition in its entirety. What used to be a severe focus on trends shifted to a rampant acquisition of quality basics including everything relating to relaxed suiting, nice knits, and practical accessories.
In a way, this major sartorial shift kind of is the trend. Suddenly, we look in our closet and it is filled with neutral hues and tailored separates, and the trend section has been replaced solely with basics, which brings me to my main point: The reidentification of basic wardrobe staples as “cool” shifted our closets entirely and after a couple of years and multiple seasons, the eight items below have officially been deemed trend-proof.
To me, this means that basics were able to come back to life and find their home again in the must-have section of our wardrobes. And the eight pieces ahead have passed the test of trendiness and timelessness entirely.
Here, I’ll walk you through the eight wardrobe staples I am deeming trend-proof this year, including mules, cardigans, and more.
