This season’s best sellers proves that we, as followers of fashion, are clever enough to buy pieces that are sure to have multiple functionalities. The list includes essential pieces that, when amped up with another accessory, can double as another look. These are basic, timeless pieces that are easily paired with anything.

From the perfect white shirt to basic shift dresses — if these doesn’t ring practicality to you, then this list surely will. Shall we go through it one by one?

Long Wallets

Printed Wallets from Mango in Red, Black, and White

Wallets used to be left hidden from our sight, buried inside our cluttered bags (we all plea guilty to having too much stuff in our bags). But through time, wallets have moved away from their sole purpose of carrying money to actually becoming an accessory in their own right. Like a purse, it’s a lot lighter to carry out and about, compared to lugging around a bulky bag.

White Sneakers

Nike Classic Cortez Leather Shoes in White/Black | adidas originals stan smith w in White/Noble Indigo | Nike Classic Cortez Leather Shoes in White/Red/Blue

Sneakers have had a long history. First introduced for the running track and now used for casual walks in the mall, they scream absolute practicality. A pair in classic white will go with anything. They’ve become a street style staple, but no one’s complaining! We love a good athleisure fit too.

Nude Lippies

Lip Lingerie in Honeymoon, Ruffle Trim, and Beauty Mark from NYX Professional Makeup

Is it too much of a reach to say that natural nude lippies are the next classic red lipsticks?

Much like our favorite red shade, you can pull off a nude lippie with either a full-on face or a natural #nomakeupmakeup look. Fit for both work and heading out for a girls night out.

Shift Dresses

Basic Three Quarter Sleeve Shift Dress from ZALORA in Dark Grey Marl, Black, and Burgundy

This timeless piece screams functionality as its mid-thigh fall and straight silhouette makes it suitable for every occasion. The boxy frame may or may not appeal to you as flattering but its simplicity will hook you right up. It’s meant for democratic styling — whether you want to dress it up or dress it down.

Classic Watches

Virginia Analog Watch from Fossil | Slim Runway Watch from Michael Kors

Despite the rise of digital and smart watches, there’s still something about the familiar look of a three-hand analog watch.

A classic leather or gold-strapped timepiece looks classic and sophisticated, making it easy to pair with anything from your workwear to your weekend wear.
