#BacktoBasics: Restyle your wardrobe with the Cruise 2018 collection
Spice it up
From your day-off staples to workwear essentials, here are six different ways to give your closet that trendy refresh
It's the beginning of the year, and if you're still in that new-year-new-me mood, it's about time to give your closet its much needed revitalising. From fail-proof LBDs to casual T-shirts, we picked out six wardrobe classics and gave the worn-to-death pieces (not complaining, really) a spruce-me-up—all with the Cruise 2018 collection. Whether you'd like to refresh your look, or to just have another reason to go shopping, either way works.
Two words: layer up. Retain the LBD's über sleek vibe with an alluring sheer top worn under, finished off on an edgy note with cut-out booties.
Instead of sticking to a monochrome palette, go for clashing prints with a stripes-and-jacquard combo that bound to turn heads. The booties—with trousers tucked in—make walking about town that bit more stylish.
Striped sweater, Louis Vuitton. Wide-legged trousers, Céline. Pumps, Bottega Veneta. Jacquard trousers, booties and bag, all Louis Vuitton.
Dress up your day-off staple by incorporating some structure and sheer details. We love how the nipped-at-the-waist blazer enhances the dressy vibe without looking overly formal, thanks to the pleated skirt. Matching accessories are fail-proof.
T-shirt, and printed trousers, both Gucci. Ankle-strap pumps, Jimmy Choo. Blazer, Céline. Pleated skirt, Prada. Bag, Dior. Pumps, Saint Laurent.
Not in the mood for some décolletage-flaunting? No fret. Give your neutral-hued number that pop of interest with a bright turtleneck top, unzipped to show off our accessory of choice—the bandanna.
V-neck dress, Dior. Jewelled flats, Miu Miu. High-neck top, Miu Miu. Bandanna scarf and bag, both Dior. Pumps, Bottega Veneta.
Give the workwear essential that playful update on the weekends—the overall lends that utilitarian flair to the get-up. Instead of the go-to sneakers, a pair of heels will help to elevate the outfit.
Button-down shirt and denim shorts, both Gucci. Knee-high booties, Saint Laurent. Overalls, Miu Miu. Embellished-handle bag, Gucci. Slingback pumps, Prada.
