This fall, we’re going back to basics with the introduction of The Core Collection. Whether you’re assembling an outfit for a day at the office or a weekend brunch, you’ll find yourself reaching for staple pieces like our Crew Neck Tees in Black, White, and Heather Gray. Trust us, these versatile tees will stay in your closet’s rotation forever as you create the capsule wardrobe of your dreams. Keep scrolling for some style inspiration below. 

For Everyday

If you’re looking to add a pop of color to our neutral tee collection, we love pairing the Crew Neck Tee in White with our Embroidered Straight Leg Denim. Next, you’ll want to toss on your favorite pair of white sneakers. Select a bag with a bold hue, like the Mach and Mach Wave Leather Baguette Bag, to compliment the denim embroidery. And just like that, you’ve styled your new favorite day-to-day look.

For Dinner Dates

For this breezy, effortless outfit, we’ve paired our Black Crew Neck Tee with a black satin midi skirt. You can dress this look up or down, but we chose a pair of classic (and comfortable) patent-leather mary jane ballet flats. Haven't you heard? Ballet flats are back and we couldn't be more excited. Complete your look with a statement bag - we're loving this occasion ruched top handle bag by Ganni. It's the perfect go-to for happy hours, dinner dates, and evenings out. 

For the Office

If you’re looking to add timeless pieces to your work wardrobe, then our Crew Neck Tee and High Waisted Wide Leg Pants are a must-have for your capsule closet. To take this look from the office to a night out, add a pair of Gia Borghini white heels and standout gold-tone enamel heart hoop earrings. Consider your “five to nine” look complete.

For a Night Out

One of the best parts of our Core Collection pieces? You can elevate any one of our Crew Neck Tees with a black mini skirt – we’re obsessed with the Anna Quan Harvey Wool Mini Skort - and a killer pair of MACH & MACH Double Bow Crystallized High Heels. To add to the chic look, we recommend adding a little sparkle, like KARA's Crystal Mesh Bag, and styling your hair in a sleek bun for a crisp and clean look. 

For the Weekend

For casual weekend plans, one of our favorite looks has to be our Crew Neck Tee in Black paired with the High Waisted Wide Leg Denim in Khaki. Add a Coperni black baguette bag and throw on a pair of Stuart Weitzman Soho loafers to create a chic, yet sophisticated daytime fit.
