The best thing about getting dressed in the morning is having go-to basics. Blazers are something I wear a lot of because I work in an office setting but I also dress them down with jeans and shorts. I find them completely versatile and believe everyone should own a quality one or a few.
Another great basic are jeans, whether it’s blue, white or black. I stray away from colored jeans because they’re trendy and I always find myself giving it to charity after three months. The one I have on is by Levi’s and are my favorite because of the high waist and the raw cut at the hem (which I DIY’d). It adds a twist to “basic” and adds edge to the feminine pink jacket. High waist jeans also give my petite frame some height.
The other basics I love are white tees (also great in grey and black) and nude shoes, whether it’s heels or flats. I have a couple white tees (and am in desperate need of ALOT more), this one has the streets of New York sewn on, which again puts a ‘twist’ on basics but I love it and have worn it so much that I’m afraid it’ll soon be worn out. Lol. Otherwise I stick with solid whites (black or grey) because I dress them up or down.
And nude shoes are a MUST! .. they go with everything and they never fail to match. I have many pairs because of how fast I go through them in a year span. It’s definitely the best basic for shoes and they also elongate your stature.
What are your go-to basics?
