If you still don't believe us, take a look at what Gen Z style icons today love to wear. For example, teen actress Francine Diaz understands the importance of investing in effortless pieces that will never go out of style.

3. Crop Top

While you're at it, look for a nice crop top, too. You can go for a dainty printed one like Francine's or go for something more modest.

4. Cardigan

Apart from keeping you warm and cozy, cardigans can also elevate an otherwise plain outfit.

5. Denim Jacket

But if you prefer that edgy cool-girl look, you can also layer with a denim jacket. It's also an easy way to toughen up softer ensembles.

8. LWD

A little white dress is both pretty and practical. As Francine demonstrates, you can wear it by itself or layer it over a well-fitted top. 

9. Sandals
