We promise you this:  Crisp, cool classics will form the backbone of your wardrobe, be it in a bold, fuschia hue or a khaki neutral. And we have found a gem in Massimo Dutti whose Spring/Summer 2017 menswear and womenswear collection has everything we need—classic pieces with an urban twist; closet staples that will be worn over and over again.

 The Spanish brand has been a fashion secret that both trendsetters and classic dressers have shared for years. It’s not hard to see why; we’ll let their easy-elegant aesthetic, well- tailored pieces speak for themselves.

 We like to think of khaki as black or navy’s underrated cousin. This sandy hue is, in fact, a lot more versatile than you would believe—pair it with a polo tee and some sneakers and you've got yourself a casual work ensemble, while a button-down and oxfords have you covered for formal occasions. Tailored to perfection, the khaki shade means you can easily wear this from day to night.

You can never go wrong with a white button-up shirt. The oversized look of this particular piece imbues a laid-back vibe but can be easily transformed into a workwear essential when tucked into well-fitted trousers. The minimalistic horizontal stripes also add a subtle flair to the outfit without compromising its nature as a styling basic.

The versatility of a boldly coloured sundress cannot be underestimated. The fuschia compliments just about any skin tone and keeps you looking glowy- whether or not you've been basking in the sun. Without compromising the DNA of a sundress, the Massimo Dutti frock adds the illusion of structure with delicate pleats, making it appropriate for the boardroom when paired with a blazer.

Blazers tend to be seen as staid and boring, but with an unexpected splash of colour, it makes for an exciting addition to your wardrobe. Pro-tip: To nail stylish power dressing that’s worthy of any Generation T lister, pair this well-crafted skinny-cut jacket with flared trousers and stilettos.
