Coat, t-shirt, jeans, loafers, tote: the no-brainer ensemble for days when you just don’t know what the weather is doing or where you’ll end up.

Thankfully, today’s functional basics go beyond the standard and are made for just such scenarios: coats so warm yet cut so well they double as blazers; t-shirts so luxe they’ve become appropriate for just about any setting; jeans that fit like a glove with such fine silhouettes you’ll never need regular trousers again; loafers with chunky soles and great grip that make it less of a disaster to step in puddles and overflowing gutters; and sleek, oversized tote bags perfect for hauling around your umbrella and any number of other essentials.

Because these days “practical” need not be boring, folks. In fact, it’s really the only way to dress.
