Create your own subtle luxury ensembles with these separates to pair.
Elevated basics are subtle and sophisticated; they emanate a comfortable grace that says, “I know who I am and I don’t need to prove anything to anyone.”
The garments are simple, but they encompass the “if you know, you know” idea of luxury and refined taste. Faux leather, maximalism for minimalism, and double denim can fall into this realm. Effortless and pulled together, these looks project a low-key confidence.
