Trends change like the wind, but there are a few timeless classics that every woman would do good to arm herself with. No matter how fashion changes, these basic pieces will create a strong foundation to build your personal style upon.
1. BASIC TEES: WHITE, GRAY, & BLACK
The basic tee is arguably the most important piece in your wardrobe. White, gray, and black basic tees, while only three colors, give you plenty of outfit variation. Go for white when you’re feeling especially bright or slip into black when you’re channeling your edgy side. Tuck it into a pair of jeans to show off your belt. Tie it in a knot and rock it with a maxi skirt. There are a million different ways to mix up your wardrobe and all you need to start is a basic tee.
2. GRAPHIC TEES
Ah, graphic tees. The more detailed, interesting cousin to the basic tee. The perfect way to express different sides of personality, graphic tees can be paired with flattering dark wash jeans for a more laid back look. For a more edgy look, throw a black blazer over top. Whether its a sassy phrase or your favorite band logo, rock that graphic with pride.
3. A CHAMBRAY TOP
Chambray tops can be dressed up or dressed down, making them an amazing foundation for building your wardrobe. Wear one over a black tank top, tie it around your waste, or button it up and pair it with your favorite leather pants.
4. A KILLER LEATHER JACKET
The almighty leather jacket is the holy grail of an edgy woman’s wardrobe. They can turn a comfy basic gray tee and skinny jeans into the sexiest of ensembles. Wear one on your morning coffee run or toss it over your little black dress for your night on the town.
5. VARIOUS DENIM STYLES: FLARE, BOOTCUT, & SKINNY
Where would we be without our denim? Some of us wear them to school or work, others on the streets. Regardless of where you’re rocking your jeans, make sure you’re rocking a fit that accentuates your shape. Find a few pairs that are comfortable for you and express your style best.
6. MAXI SKIRTS
Tie a muscle tee in a knot and toss it on top for a casual lunch with your ladies or dress it up with a tight fitting crop top for dinner with your significant other. Whatever way you wear it, this piece is a must have. Start with some basic colors like black or beige and don’t be afraid to experiment with different prints later on.
Boots were made for walking and looking like a total boss. You can rock boots with just about any outfit you piece together. Whether you go with ankle boots or ones that reach a little closer to the heavens, start with versatile colors like black or brown. They’ll go with more and that’s a great place to start when building your dream wardrobe.
