Building Your Wardrobe - The Basics

Sin título #238

Hi Dolls! This past week, I've been "cooking" this post, since I wanted to bring you the best basics and the best tips...
We all know about the importance of essentials, because they go through seasons and through years so easily. But if you want my honest opinion, I used to think they were absolutely boring and just not fun to go shopping for them, but my mom showed me that basics can be fun, because you have to browse for the one that suits you style. My advice? Go for tailored and not so much for embellished pieces because you can always add a brooch or a trendy necklace when you feel fancy.

When I say that you have to choose the ones that suit you best I mean, the jeans style that goes with your body type, the lace up in this blouse, since my style is a bit preppy and the tailored LBD.

As long as clutches go, my best tip is to get small details so that it is more versatile and not that overwhelming for the outfit.
The best everyday bag color to choose is a taupe or tan shade because it goes amazing with black and every other color. It is a neutral tone and that is the type of shade you should go for any basic piece to make it even more versatile than black itself.

Which is your favorite basic piece?

  3. Great post - thanks for the advice! I've been building my capsule wardrobe for a couple of months now and am gathering good quality basics. It's amazing what you could create from a pair of skinny jeans, a white tee and a blazer!
