Wardrobe Basics – Part 1

Wardrobe Basics – Part 1

Sorry guys, the photo is old and was used in another blog post.

Good style starts with having a few basics in your wardrobe that will make getting dressed much easier.

There are many options for pairing a black blazer. It can be worn with a white blouse and pencil skirt or trousers for the office or pair it with jeans.

The white blouse is an absolute must-have. Wear it buttoned-up with classics trousers and you are ready for the office. Wear over skinny jeans or half tucked-in for a more relaxed and modern look.

The little black dress is another must-have in your wardrobe. it’s one of the most versatile items you can buy. This can take you from the office to a night out with friends. Layer it over your white blouse or t-shirt and wear with trainers. Add a blazer and you are ready for any business meeting or add a statement necklace and heels to achieve a more glamorous look.

Oh yes – the old boring white t-shirt – that you won’t regret having in your wardrobe. Wear yours with your favourite jeans and add a necklace to dress it up.

You should have a pair of black pumps that can be worn with everything. I love animal print pumps which add any a bit more edge to an outfit.

A well-fitted dark wash pair of jeans, preferably boot-cut which looks best on most of us, is a good option. Doesn’t mean you should ignore the straight and skinny jeans. You can never have too many.

If you haven’t got a pair of white trainers you need to get a pair. Wear them basically with everything. If you aren’t convinced – think of the comfort you will have while running errands.

    These are great wardrobe basics. We should all have something like this in our closet. I think a blazer and a white shirt are items that make every closet more complete.

    Each of these pieces can be styled so differently and adding some accesoires makes them even more versatile. ♥

      Lovely, you definitely need a pair of white sneakers to complete your wardrobe basics. xo

    A white shirt and jeans combo is definitely a basic look that everyone should have! Is that bad that I would call the Chanel flap a basic as well? It just goes with everything you know?

      Didier, that is so true about the Chanel bag or a similar one that’s wallet-friendly would do just fine!

    These are must-haves indeed, especially the white shirt and leopard print shoes.

      Thanks, Mercy! I think adding animal print pumps to a basic outfit elevates the look! xo

    I think a en white t shirt looks great on Jan VS but also on a pencil skirt. So simple, yet so stylish.

      So true, Nancy! Pencil skirt with a solid white tee is very stylish although simple!
