Looks We Love: Wardrobe Essentials You’ll Want to Keep Now and Forever

At Stella Carakasi, we believe that it only takes a few good wardrobe essentials to create a variety of fresh, stylish looks. We are able to achieve this by crafting high-quality, easy to mix and match styles that you can wear over and over again, season after season. Our designs are timeless and created with eco-friendly fabrics so you can feel good about adding them to your closet. We value quality over quantity not only to help the environment but also to make getting dressed in the morning easy for any woman!

One of our most popular features on our website is our Looks We Love page. We created this page to share the many different ways that you are able to style your Stella Carakasi pieces and to show that it only takes a few pieces to create a wide variety of stylish and comfortable looks. Today, we want to share some of our favorite wardrobe essentials from our collection and the many ways you can pair them together because they are super mixable and ultra-wearable, making it easy to get dressed!

Tiburon Tunic Icon

Our Tiburon Tunic is one of our all-time best-selling pieces and for good reason! It’s made with organic cotton poplin and soft Modal® jersey to create a flattering fit for most women and also provide incredible comfort. We put an emphasis on designing clothing that fits and flatters most body shapes and this tunic is no exception! 

The Tiburon Tunic can be worn in many different ways for both casual and dressed-up occasions. Pair it with jeans, trousers, or keep it comfy with leggings and capris! This is an all-season top to rock with breezy pants and sandals in the summer or to layer in the winter. It also makes a stylish cover-up that goes from the beach to lunch. The best part is that it comes in 9 gorgeous colors so you can choose to go bright or keep it classic!

Second Nature Capris

Have you ever wanted to stay comfortable throughout the day while also looking put together? We’ve all been there! That’s where our gorgeous Second Nature Capris come in. These cropped leggings are made from organic cotton and spandex to allow for maximum comfort and stretch. They also feature a lightly shirred, cute button detail on the side hem that takes your traditional leggings up a notch. We love styling the Second Nature Capris with tunic tops and dresses for a timeless, yet easy look. These bottoms are available in white, black and our popular Tencel® denim knit!

Legacy Shirt

A classic white poplin shirt is crucial when choosing your wardrobe essentials. The Stella Carakasi Legacy Shirt was designed to be worn for any occasion—from casual to business. It features a uniquely designed, covered button placket and front pockets that give this closet staple a modern twist. The Legacy Shirtis made from an organic cotton/ Spandex blend to provide comfort and durability without having to sacrifice sustainability! Pair it with your favorite jeans or wear it with leggings (like the Second Nature Capris!) You can even layer the Legacy Shirt withcardigans and jackets to wear during the cooler months. We offer the Legacy Shirt in soft white and black. 

Heatwave Tunic

If you’re more of a denim girl, you’re going to love our new Heatwave Tunic. Like with our traditional poplin tunics, the Heatwave Tunic can be paired with almost anything you have in your wardrobe for a simple and flattering look. Wear it with leggings for a casual lunch or to run errands or pair it with white pants for a look that’s date night ready! The best part about the Heatwave Tunic is that it’s made from 100% Tencel®, an eco-friendly sustainable denim fabric. Tencel® is made from renewably sourced wood pulp that results in a super soft material but requires less water and energy to manufacture. It also is easily biodegradable so you can feel good about adding this piece to your collection! 

Illusion Tunic

If you have a passion for prints you will love the Illusion Tunic in this fresh, modern, graphic print. A true fashion piece this style is sure to make a star appearance in your wardrobe all season long. This light and breezy top is the perfect warm weather topper. Wear it with your favorite pair of jeans, leggings or pair it with our Second Nature Capris for the quintessential summer uniform. TheIllusion Tunic is made from recycled polyester georgette. Why recycled polyester you might ask?  Because we believe that it is too easy to throw out and better to throw on!

Slimming Ankle Pants

Looking for a flattering pair of pants, that fit like your most comfortable leggings and that you can wear with just about everything? Look no further than our best-selling Slimming Ankle Pants! These flattering bottoms are made with our one of a kind Tencel® blended ponte knit to offer ultra-comfort and sustainability. We designed these pants to compliment your curves through the slimming style lines. The great thing about the Slimming Ankle Pants is that they’re stretchy and comfortable but look put together. We love styling them with any of our tops, tunics, cardigans, or summer sweaters! Like many of our pieces, you can dress the Slimming Ankle Pants up or down for any event or occasion. These bottoms are available in both soft white and black so you can choose to keep it neutral or go vibrant with a bright colored top.

Go To Cardigan

A classic cardigan is a wardrobe essential for just about everybody! Our Go To Cardigan offers a modern twist on this classic piece with its flattering accordion pleated design. It’s made of cotton and Modal® to create a high-quality sweater knit. As with all Stella Carakasi styles the Go To Cardigan is designed to fit and flatter most body shapes and you can wear this knitted masterpiece all year round, season after season! In the summertime, throw it over a breezy top or tunic and pair it with cropped leggings or even shorts! In the winter, try layering it with a classic poplin shirt or tunic and pair it with your favorite jeans. The options are truly endless when it comes to our Go To Cardigan. This style is available in soft white, medium gray, and black.
