After two years of endless classes on Zoom, schools are finally reopening their doors for on-site classes. Yay, you’ll get to see *actual* people this time! 

The not-so-great news: You’re drawing a blank on your next OOTD. It’s been so long since you went out for anything other than groceries, and even then, you just settled on throwing a hoodie over your pambahay. If you feel like you have “nothing to wear,” your wardrobe probably needs some updating. We’re not talking about a complete closet overhaul (RIP student budget), but rather a simple revamp to refresh key fashion pieces. 

Not sure where to begin? Take some style inspo from Belle Mariano, the queen of simple yet fashion-forward outfits. She has a ton of cop-worthy OOTDs, but we compiled a list of 12 wardrobe staples we spotted on her to make things extra easy for you. Check them out below!
