The question we get asked the most at ICONS HQ is, quite simply, “What should I wear right now?” And the answer? Staples. Taking a moment to rediscover your sartorial building blocks will provide the everyday outfits you can reach for from now through to summer.
That’s why we’ve dedicated this ICONS Guide to sharing the clever ways to shop your own closet. We’ve taken six wardrobe fail-safes and given them a new-season spin using pieces you probably already have. Think of this as your inspirational guide to making the most of your existing collection.
And to keep that inspiration going, we’d love you to share how you’re reworking your staples, by posting an outfit picture using the hashtag #weshowyouwhatnevergoesoutoffashion
TAKE YOUR STRIPED TOP
Give your striped top a spring twist by layering it underneath your favourite jumpsuit. Show off the print with longer length sleeves or by unbuttoning your jumpsuit collar. Biker boots and a puffer coat complete the weekend ensemble.
TAKE THE STRAIGHT JEAN
This classic jean shape is reinvented with the simple addition of a pair of white ankle boots and a statement-sleeve knit. Layer your classic trench over the top for an easy denim outfit.
TAKE YOUR CHECK SUIT
Render your classic check trouser suit new-season-ready by switching out a shirt for your fine-gauge knitted roll neck. Team the smart-casual look with a pair of white trainers.
TAKE YOUR WHITE SHIRT
Rework a classic white shirt by playing with texture. Layer it underneath a sleek leather skirt, adding an oversized tweed blazer on top. Finish with your knee-high boots.
TAKE YOUR BLACK TROUSERS
Guaranteed to be in every woman’s wardrobe, the black trouser is given a new lease of life with a leather top and classic loafers. Add your leopard coat for a pop of print.
TAKE YOUR CASHMERE JUMPER
Update your cashmere knit by turning it into a luxe co-ord with a matching pair of trousers. Keep the outfit polished with a smart overcoat and sleek trainers.
