Modern Separates For Easy Chic

In search of a fresh look that’s comfy but chic? Try these easy-to-wear separates and mix and match at will.

A silk shirt always looks effortless, but refined. It’ll elevate the simplest pair of trousers.

Silk button-down shirt, €306 at DKNY

These culotte-style pants are so comfortable to wear. They have the fluidity of a skirt but the comfort factor of trousers.

Grey pinstripe cropped trouser, €135 at Mint Velvet

I love the oversized cuffs of this shirt. They add a really unique appeal.

Metallic pinstripe shirt, €59.95 at Zara

Never thought of wearing a pleated skirt with anything but heels? Look how well this Maje piece pairs with trainers. The tie-dye effect gives a slightly more urban or street feel to the skirt, which helps to marry it with the athleisure footwear.

Tie-dye effect pleated skirt, €195 at Maje

This oversized ruched sweater looks so comfortable. Layer it over a long-sleeved T-shirt and add a chunky scarf.

Wool jersey asymmetric top, €69 at Cos

This is a wear-anywhere and wear-with-anything skirt. A great investment buy, it’s the kind of anchor piece we should build our wardrobes around.

A-line skirt, €195 at Sandro

The longer-length waistband of this aran knit?gives it a refined, feminine silhouette.?Sweaters don’t have to be sloppy.

Cable-knit polo-neck jumper, €39.99 at H&M
