- A Neutral Trouser/Dress Pant
The perfect pair of trousers can pull together any business look. Business professional is a traditional form of attire used in more conservative settings with very strict dress codes. The perfect pair of dress pants will be a solid print, neutral color, and taper to fit just right.
Where would we be without the classic denim look? Over the decades, denim has continued to evolve and stay relevant. Whether it be a groovy pair of flare jeans, a rad jean jacket, a dope denim suit, or a Von Dutch denim hat, denim will always and forever live on in its’ awesomeness.

The bodysuit is the perfect base for so many outfits during any season of the year. Sucking you in and showing the world the best of your curves, you’ll want to grab one in every color.
- Graphic Tees
Whether you’re team crew neck or team V-neck, we can all agree that a graphic tee is an absolute essential for most wardrobes. When coming together for a family reunion, a charity event, or even the grand end-of-year dance competition, the graphic tee has found a way to unify us all. Much like denim, the classic graphic tee has re-invented itself over the years in many ways. We now even have the miracle of T-Shirt dresses taking comfort and style to completely new levels! Sleep tees, pocket tees and cropped tees being honorable mentions. A tasteful graphic tee is, and we may argue, will always be a great addition to your wardrobe.
- Button Up Blouse
Button up shirts are essentially buttoned tops with a collar. Sleeves can be short or long. Fit can range between perfectly tailored, draped, or even oversized. Fabrics and materials are typically woven, and usually formal or “dressy”. Cotton or plaid shirts, despite their much more casual, relaxed appearance, have grown to become very popular during the colder months. Shirts can be masculine but are not necessarily so. Flounces or ruffles are often added to create a more feminine vibe. The classic white button up is our 2021 Zeal favorite due to its’ versatility.
- Lounge Set
The year 2020 was a quite a doozy for most of the world. One of the greatest things, however, to come out of the panoramic was the explosion of loungewear sets. In the fashion world, we didn’t let the pandora get to us, no sir we did not. Instead, we took the good with the bad during one of the worst Pangaeas in history and created comfy chic! That’s right, the wonderful blend of cozy and cool to be motivated just enough to get on that zoom call and then catch that next episode of Manifest right after. The best part about this trendy closet staple is that it comes as a set. Yes, two items instead of one, making it easy to dress up or down depending on the size, color, fabrics, and how you choose to accessorize.
