And How To Incorporate Them Into Your Wardrobe


If you’re wondering – what is a statement staple? Basically it’s a simple item that has something a little extra; maybe it’s a unique print, interesting sleeve, or made in an unusual fabric. These are the pieces that can work in your everyday capsule but also bring a little pop to your outfit and also are probably gonna attract a few compliments by fashionable friends, mums at school drop-off, and strangers at the cafe. Read on for our round up of the top statement pieces that are effortless and subtly turn heads.  


Let’s be honest, jeans are always going to be your go-to in your everyday wardrobe. However, if you’re looking for an alternative that feels elevated but still relaxed may we suggest the leather trouser? Leather trousers can feel off-putting for some but they truly are for everyone. The key is to choose relaxed cuts and not skinny silhouettes or tight fitting options and pair it back with a basic tee, slides, or sneakers.  

If you’re looking for a blazer that you can wear to work or out to dinner but still has something with a little extra detail then you’re in luck. The key to elevating this essential is texture, pattern, and details that are slightly different but not crazy out there – think black and navy velvets, interesting features (check out the smile pockets on the Blaze Milano), and fishbone or stripe patterns that can easily be worn over jeans.  

A denim jacket, button up, or dress is an all year round classic but if you’re looking to separate yourself from the other denim pieces — choose tailored options. We love the sleeves on these Retrofete jacket and Isabel Marant Raspberry Button Up. However, if you want more unusual tailoring that’s also a little more relaxed choose a cinched waist to add shape but keep things relaxed like in this Retrofete Dress.  

Heels are always a great way to make a big statement but if you’re looking for something that is a little more everyday but not totally expected, then choose a comfortable slide with a point of difference. Maybe it’s silver pony hair, a pearl or stud detail, or luxe leather. We suggest keeping your colour palette pretty neutral, and maybe a silver or gold to ensure it compliments your outfit tonally and doesn’t overpower the rest of your look.  

You can make everything a little more elevated with the right feature detail – even your go-to knit or sweater. Look for cool details like cut outs, off the shoulders or balloon sleeves. We’d pair any of these with jeans for a look that says cozy cool girl.  

Although an absolute classic, sometimes it can feel a little bit “same old” to reach for your go-to baseball white tee. When you’re looking for a tee to style with your look but are after something a little more interesting, choose a biker, rock, or slogan tee. You’ll have that same off-duty comfort and style but just a little edgier.
