A New Spin On The Classics

We know our tired-and-true outfits never fail us, but that doesn't mean we don't quickly fall into a rut, even if it's with our favorite classic trenches, khaki pants, oxfords or white button-downs. But with a few studs here and a snip-snap there, designers like Preen and Alexander Wang have created some new classics by adding some necessary oomph to our wardrobe essentials. From khakis that you can take jogging to white button-up shirts that'll stay tucked in no matter what, here's an avant-garde spin on old basics so you can pay homage to the big shots without losing your edge.
