Mon, August 14

If you're on social media at all, you can't not have come across videos of the latest aesthetics. From cottagecore to dark academia core to the pilates princess, there's just so many options that it's near impossible to keep count.

More than ever, the trends are cycling so fast that it's hard to keep up. As someone who used to love dressing along with all the recent microtrends, I've come to realize that those styles end as quickly as they start, and that my closet is left packed with clothes that are no longer "in." Those clothes may be cute at the moment, but when the trends are over, their appeals can drop quite easily.

To curb that overconsumption of way too many styles (that you'll probably never wear again, if we're being honest here), turning to a timeless closet is the way to go. After all, you just can't go wrong with choosing pieces that are well-made and actually made to fit your body!

After scouring everywhere for the best picks for creating that capsule closet you can always depend on, I couldn't help but immediately feel drawn to Frank and Oak for checking all the right boxes.

Transitioning to a more everyday essentials wardrobe has completely erased the regret of pieces that I no longer wear. With Frank and Oak's timeless and chic designs, it's easy to put together an outfit- and you'll look and feel good doing it.

If you're looking for staple pieces to constantly keep in rotation in your closet, shop our favorite styles for the upcoming fall season here:

The Perfect Everyday Tee

There's no such thing as perfect, but this baby t-shirt does come in pretty close...

Shop the Baby T-shirt in Bright White here.

There's nothing more classic than a white t-shirt, and this baby tee puts a chic spin on it with a slim-fitting silhouette that compliments your frame. With a pointelle jersey fabric, this organic cotton shirt is so soft and adaptable to the warmer and cooler weather.

With a midi length, this top doesn't feel too short or too long. Whether you go for high-waisted jeans or low rise jeans, this top complements just about anything!

Keep It Cool With A Tank

This tank might look like it came straight from the 90's, but it's as timeless as ever.

With a high neck and a curved cut right by the shoulders, this tank top has a casual sporty feel to it. Made with organic cotton materials that are "responsible cotton grown and harvested with sustainable methods," this flattering top is perfectly comfortable and classic. I love how it has a ribbed texture, making it just thick enough while keeping you cool.

I love how versatile this tank top is, and how you can layer it up or down to your liking. There's so many ways you can wear this, and it'll always be hassle-free to style!

Shop the Organic Cotton Rib Tank in Twilight Blue here.

The Twilight Blue is navy blue's little sister with its youthful charm and hazy purple-blue shade. It has a pop of color that's just blue and dark enough to be considered a neutral staple!

Shop the Organic Cotton Rib Tank in Ash Lavender here.

The Ash Lavender is a pale lavender-gray hue that feels adjacent to the neutral creams and off-whites whilst still having that feminine chic style. Opt for this instead of the darker grays to switch up your look!

Clean & Cool With White Jeans

Every capsule closet needs denim, and the only four colors you'll ever need are blue, gray, black, and white. These four neutrals are a must, and white jeans are the perfect way to dress your look up or down.

Shop the Marianne High Rise Relaxed Straight Jean in Off White here.

The Marianne Jeans have the classic high-rise silhouette that effortlessly elongates the legs, and the white color is bright and airy. The jeans have a vintage-inspired paper patch at the back, and has a chic silver button in center.

The real magic with these pair of jeans is all about its quality. A part of Frank and Oak's Circular denim™, these jeans are made with "existing resources [that] are kept in use for as long as possible before being recycled when they have fulfilled their purpose." Made with conscious materials, salvaged fires, and a Hydro-less process that "saves up to 95% more water than traditional methods", these jeans are as sustainable as can be.

I love styling this with a floral blouse, or keeping it easy with a simple tee or tank top. There's so many ways you can wear these jeans, and the white shade makes it look good with just about anything!

Classy & Timeless Neutral Jeans

There's something so alluring about a simple pair of gray-black jeans- and just a pair alone can elevate your entire wardrobe.

Shop the Cyndi High Rise Straight Jean in Washed Black here.

Denim shopping can get picky, but the Cyndi Jeans manage to nail every single aspect of design that a solid pair of jeans should have. Not only are these jeans actually comfortable (bye, stiff jeans!), but they're made with recycled fabrics, much less water, are a part of the Circular denim™ collection.

Even the tiny details pay homage to Frank and Oak's mission of keeping our planet clean: with a NATULON® recycled polyester zipper tape, a recycled patch at the back, and nickel shanks, these jeans are focused on every parts!

These jeans are perfect for the tall girls, and the high waist emphasizes the long legs even more. I love how these have a straight fit and don't stick too close to the legs while maintaining a slim silouette.

Flirty & Fresh For That Cooler Season

It's that cusp of cooler weather right between the end of summer and the beginning of fall, and that calls for a midi dress!

Shop the Short Sleeve Printed Dress in Black here.

There's something so romantic about a floral midi dress, and the gorgeous earthy tones of this dress makes it feel so much more mature and dreamy. With just the right amount of v-neck, ruched detailing in the center, and lightly puffed sleeves, this dress is so easy to slip on and looks effortlessly put-together.

This dress is cool to the touch with a LENZING™ and ECOVERO™ blend fabric, so you won't ever have to worry about it sticking to your skin. I love that the dress has a slim fit and hugs your silhouette all in the right places! Pair this with your favorite sandals or kitten heels, and you're all set.
