Finding the one failsafe outfit formula that hits the mark every time, both in terms of aesthetic and fit, has to be the gold standard of dressing for all fashion-lovers. Even the most experimental individuals can’t deny the power of a ‘uniform’, whether it’s for work or low-effort weekend dressing. It shows that you know what works for you, and while trends may come and go, some pieces will look just as good now as they will in 5 years’ time.
