When you finally give loungewear the boot, turn to Arabella's wardrobe for inspiration.

Shoutout to Scott Disick for this cool acid wash crewneck.

Stay cute and angelic in this vibrant graphic sweatshirt.

Proof that cargo pants can be cool. Like, very cool.

Slowly ease back into real pants with these loose skater trousers.

Cardigans were a signature for Arabella, especially during some of the most important moments during the show. Go big and bold with this knitwear style.

A chunky cardigan with a color palette to brighten up any gray day.

No need to wear anything underneath. This cardigan is a showstopper on its own.

Arabella knows the ease behind an athleisure-inspired look — and isn't afraid to mix and match logos either.

For a looser fit, try this copped crewneck.

Nothing is quite as comfortable as a drawstring jogger.

Arabella's Maleficent-meets-dark-angel costume is just as wearable (and selfie-worthy) outside of Halloween once you ditch the wings, horns, and barbed wire.

A leather bustier perfect for layering or wearing on its own.

A faux leather bodysuit option with a snap closure (bless).

For some added sparkle, look to this star-print sheer dress.

Or go for full drama with this floor-length ruffled gown.
