If you find yourself in a rut and not know where to start, a good first step is to build a daily rotation of clothes by going back to the essentials.

When searching for that pair of universally good-looking bottoms, put your faith in a pair of humble denim jeans. HUGO‘s take on old reliable plays with proportions in a slim-fitted, cropped silhouette, while Saint Laurent‘s dark grey skintight jeans (what else?) is even flattering for those who stayed true to their new year’s resolutions.

White sneakers are a godsend. When you work a pair of clean white kicks into your outfit, effortless styling ensues as everything magically falls into place.
