  3. Black Pantsuit

    While men have baggy trousers for days when they want to ditch denim jeans, women have culottes. While it has a slouchier cut than denim or trousers, culottes are fashionable and quite versatile, too. Wear yours with a T-shirt-and-sneakers combo for a comfy look or a trendy bardot top and cute sandals.

  9. Backpacks
