In our search for the best timeless wardrobe staples to add to our closets and keep forever, we’ve shared everything from the best staples from go-to brands like Madewell to the items a mother and daughter have in common. And now we’re back again with a new expert and her insight. Meet Yasmin Furmie, the South Africa-based style savant and designer of SiSi, a line of modern shirting.
I discovered this chic lady on Instagram one day and was immediately drawn to her creative, colorful, and expertly-styled outfits. Chatting with Furmie reminded me of exactly why I fell in love with fashion in the first place: just how creative and personal it can be. So while her style can be categorized as anything but basic, she’s got her wardrobe basics on lock.
Furmie doesn’t just have great outfits, though, she has the kind of style wisdom that only comes from decades of experimenting and finding what works for her. “I’m 58 years old and loving the space I’m in,” she told me, pointing to her confidence and self-belief as the two valuable things she’s gained with age. She shared her favorite wardrobe staples with us and unsurprisingly, they’re really good. So continue on to read why she relues on each of the below six items and of course, see how she wears each.
