Think: trench coats, boiler jumpsuits, tailored sweater vests, and the list of utility staples to drool over goes on.
Good news if you could use a refresh of wear-everywhere, easy-to-style pieces: Amazon, as in your go-to place for baby shower gifts and miscellaneous cleaning supplies, is low-key brimming with minimalist fashion. This includes Veja, the eco-friendly brand favored by the likes of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex; Soko, upcycled statement jewelry handcrafted by artisans in Kenya; and so many more. To make the pursuit of navigating through Amazon less maddening, we've gone ahead and rounded up 31 of the smartest pieces to scoop up now.
