The beginning of a new season might seem like the natural time to spend your paycheck on the boldest and most of-the-moment trends in the “new arrivals” section. But in reality, seasonless classics are the pieces to pay attention to heading into fall. Timeless jackets, dresses that can be layered, athleisure you can wear nearly 365 days a year — these are the essentials that’ll work hardest in your closet. Conveniently, Amazon’s Staples by The Drop line specializes in just these kind of fashion-conscious building blocks.
