You don’t have to start afresh every time you grow weary of your daily clothes. These clothing staples are meant to last many years, which is why they’re a good investment. However, the most trustworthy basics are the most rudimentary: the little cocktail dress, white T-shirt, and jeans. They’re empty sheets on which you could paint your emotion, preferred trend, or current aesthetic. Everything you require is the appropriate accessories.

With the addition of a few crucial accessories, you might well alter even the most simple clothes. Your LBD may be worn to the office wearing red block-heel shoes or even to lunch with a fun embellished purse; your favorite sweatpants and jeans can be worn to a conference wearing snakeskin sandals and now to do chores with sliders. Use these to update your favorite outfits in 2021 with shoes, purses, jewelry, and hair clips.
