Hello there 🙂
Stylists spend all day shopping for other people, but I want to know what they are buying for yourself. After all, they need to be comfortable for long days and probably put on the part of their job as well. So I went straight to the source to find out what a stylist thinks of her wardrobe in 2021.
Dana Asher Levine is a Los Angeles-based stylist who counts Shonda Rhimes (pictured above) as a longtime client, as well as a host of other Hollywood executives and women of all ages and body types. She is also the founder of The Clothing Therapist, which offers closet editing, event styling, editorial styling, and more.
The list Levine provided me with is a great mix of basics and trending items, all relevant to the new era we are living in. Keep scrolling to encourage their experts and shop for their must-haves.
"In the Year of Comfort, we learned how to make your favorite gaiters work at home and get them out on the streets." – Dana Asher Levine
"The useful classics" the combat boots "are dominating this year. They are a great transition piece between the seasons. You can find the boots in every market from Zara to luxury Prada."
"Tracksuits have resurfaced during the quarantine. We learned to style them with a blazer and jewelry for a chic look or wear them with a coat in the city for everyday life."
"The blazer has always been a classic work look. It not only goes with jeans, but now also with your loungewear set."
"An old favorite from the 90s is back: wide legs for a comfortable baggy look."
"The ultimate must-have is loungewear. Silk or monochromatic matching sets are now not only a must for the home, but also perfect for strolling around town."
"One of the most important pieces in your wardrobe. It's a simple, classic shoe that will take you from home to work and then to a party."
"This year there is an enormous boom in cashmere knitwear on almost every fashion line. It is an absolute must for its comfort and its cozy appearance."
"In the world of fashion bags, the Cleo bag is indispensable. Combine it with any outfit to create a classic look atmosphere!"
"The must-have of all must-haves this year is a mask of any color or print. Elevate the mask with chains and jewelry and match it with your outfits."
