Transforming STU Classics to Make Daily Dressing Count

We've once again given our classic silhouettes a twist in one of our latest stories, "Elevated Daywear", for your wardrobe update. The story focuses on making a streamlined and fresh edit on the styles that you love: wide leg pants, quirky tops, multifunctional skirts, and easy dresses. What's great about these is that they are actually buildable pieces that can effortlessly transform a look! Ahead, four looks that can further elevate your daily casuals.

Color Block It

Who is over the color blocking trend? We know we aren't! Besides, we think this styling trick will last forever. We gave the Petrosani pants a cool contrast by mixing it with not only one, but two tops! While we think wearing the Potenza alone can be daring but still oh-so-chic, it can also be layered with a crop top for added texture (and showing just the right amount of skin). We chose the Alfreda crop top for an extra peep of color. Finish off this ensemble with white accessories to balance everything out.

Add a Gentlewoman Touch

For a modern take on our new midi dress (coming soon!), we decided to make it gentlewomanly (aka "tomboy chic"). We paired it with a boxy blazer like the Reno and scrunched up the sleeves, for a play on silhouettes. Accessorize with a travel-friendly sling bag like the Olivia for easier movement as you go through the day. As for shoes? A pair of mandals would be perfect!

Go Neo Nautical

Nautical dressing is a perennial summer trend we always look back to for vacation-ready attire in three crisp colors: white, red, and navy blue. White is always a great canvas to start with, so we made these paper bag shorts the outfit's key piece. You can wear it with a basic turtleneck top and layer the Banha crop top over it as a vibrant addition. You can't lose the stripes in a nautical-inspired look! We were feeling playful so we accessorized with the Annika shell earrings and used the Laura bag as a clutch. Lastly, wear this garb with neutral colored footwear or better yet, clear ones like the Delphi!

Play with Lengths

While we can't stop wearing dresses over pants, we're into skirts over dresses as well! Take for instance this outfit, where we styled the Kabina over this beige midi dress for a play on lengths. Don't you just love layering? We skipped the structured leather bags for a woven one like the Nova, to create a tropical antithesis to it. You can complete the look with equally sleek footwear like these white pointed mules. Now you know what your next work outfit looks like!

We hope we inspired you to mix and match your go-to pieces for everyday, to transform them into creative lewks for any any activity or occasion. Tag us on social with #seektheuniq so we can see what looks you've come up with! You might just see yourself on our page. ;)
