6. The Wide-Leg Jean

We usually reach for skinnies or boyfriend jeans but a great pair of wide-leg jeans are ideal for mixing things up this year. It’s a timeless silhouette that comes back into fashion time and time again thanks to its easy sophistication, especially in a darker wash.

7. The Nude Shoe

Neutral wedges complement everything in your closetwhich is exactly why you should invest in a great pair. Choose a style that’s polished enough to work at the office, yet comfy enough to wear casually. Shown here is one of our favorites by Delman.

8. The Bold Sweater

You probably have a drawerful of plain-Jane, solid-color sweaters. Why not mix in a winter essential that will bring some eye-catching contrast to your look? This Jil Sander piece has an asymmetrical hem and a bold color-blocked design that’s just so cool.

9. The Cigarette Pant

Think jeans are the key to your wardrobe? Don’t underestimate the brilliance of a black cigarette pant—they will astound you with their versatility. As with denim, fit is key. Check the look standing up and sitting down. And don’t forget the back: you don’t want any sagging!

10. The Fitted Blazer

A simple, well-tailored blazer works day and night, and all year round. Pair it with a silky dress, a casual tee, a thin turtleneck… the list goes on forever. We chose a dark navy color to switch things up from basic black.
