If you follow along with my Outfit Diary posts, you probably already know that I have a soft spot for classic wardrobe staples. White tees, striped shirts, ballet flats, medium-wash skinny jeans…they’ll always have a place in my closet! I wore the outfit below on a day when we headed downtown to shoot a post with MVMT (truly, it was such a thrill to collaborate with a brand Dave has loved for years and I’m a new fan of–thank you so much for your support on the post!). I think it was my favorite outfit I’ve worn in weeks, if not months, because it epitomizes what I love to wear: classic basics with a feminine twist. An outfit recipe doesn’t get much more timeless than a white blouse, jeans, a trench coat, and ballet flats. While I’ve worn that exact look countless times and always love it, swapping a standard white button-down for one with a statement collar and my go-to skinny jeans for a new pair of boyfriend jeans felt like a fresh, 2021 twist. The result brought me so much delight! One more checkmark for my “delight in hobbies” goal, perhaps?
Mango statement collar blouse, J. Crew boyfriend jeans, Banana Republic Factory trench coat (old, similar here, here, and here), Margaux ballet flats (take 10% off with code LISA), Draper James handbag, MVMT Lexington watch (take 15% off with the code LISAJANELKIRK15), MVMT Rex XL sunglasses (take 15% off with the code LISAJANELKIRK15)
I’d love to hear, what’s one classic piece you love having in your closet? This trench coat is close to a decade old, but I never get bored of it!
