Weird topic coming from us, right? Well, at dresst™ we believe that you should invest in your staples and rent everything else! So, to get your closet set up for success this fall, we’re outlining our Top 5 staples you should invest in. And of course we’ll be sending our top runway trends that you can rent so stay tuned!
THE ANKLE BOOT
If you’re going to invest in one item, selecting a classic, well-made leather boot is the place to do it. There are a lot of great options like this stunning Chelsea Boot from Marc Fisher available at Nordstrom. We know…Canadian weather. BUT if you treat them properly (water resistance spray is not just an upsell people!) and are smart when you wear them, a good pair can last you for up to 5 years.
STRAIGHT LEG DENIM
Long or short-legged, straight leg denim is the look de jour and it’s a great way to update your look with a staple. While dark denim is a classic recommendation, we’re actually loving these bleach raw hem straight legs from Top Shop. Also a steal at $75!
Layering season is here and a classic trench is a must-have for the “shoulder season” (fall + spring) wardrobe. Whether you pick a classic, double breasted from Sam Edelman, a softer style like this one from LEITH or even go functional military with this option from Avec Les Filles
NEUTRAL WOOL PANT
Fitted or slouchy, your choice, but wool pants will be a staple for you this season. Get away from the blacks and blues and pick a neutral. It’ll match most of your tops and will give you that, fresh, elevated look you deserve. We’re loving this belted option from Club Monaco.
Put a spin on your previous flats and check out these loafers from Everlane. 100% Italian leather gives a rich looking quality, without the break-the-bank price tag. Pair with dress pants or go back to denim, these loafers will elevate your look as soon as you slide them on.
