Many times in various fashion advice publications you’re told to always invest in basics or classics. But if you find yourself to be fashionably challenged or simply cannot understand what these items mean or what they are , here’s a quick run down on what you need as a basic in your closet.
Simple black tees and white tees, they go hand in hand as a staple in your closet. They can easily dress up an outfit or dress it down. A simple tee can be worn with a pencil skirt and a blazer for work, or with a cropped jacket, jeans and riding boots. As simple as they may be these tees are so versatile, and they are relatively inexpensive, always by multiples of them so you can make use of them with all your outfits , especially on those days when you feel you have nothing to wear. We ALL have those days.
Dark denim jeans, denim jeans are an acceptable choice virtually everywhere. Not to mention they are very flattering on women, with the right fit of course. They can be worn in and out of the work place. They are a great alternative to a black pant . The most important thing to remember and take note of, is the fit. No jean is flattering when they do not fit you properly, take the time to find the fit that flatters you the most, and that doesn’t mean to run straight towards the jeans with the rhinestones pointing at your derrière that is a definite no-no. Remember classic, yet simple.
The next classic you need is a well tailored blazer. Tailored in the sense that it not only fits you but accentuates your body. Boxy blazers are not very flattering, you should always look for a blazer that is more cinched in the waist. If you have a larger bust size always go up a size , it will be more flattering and comfortable for you. Blazers come in a variety of colors, and patterns these days, it is always great to have a variety in the right shape and size, however a simple black blazer goes with everything.
Statement jewelry is another classic. When you think you always need something a little extra for your outfit that statement necklace or earring can really make your outfit pop and take it to the next level. The best thing to remember is that too much jewelry can come across gaudy and busy. If you want to wear that big chunky necklace then scrap the large chandelier earrings and opt for a simple hoop or studs. Remember less is more in this area.
There are tons of options out there for you and shopping does not have to be difficult. Always remember to find what works out best for YOU. Being yourself always wins.
