Rule #6 - Back to the Basics: My last rule (seriously!) is a reminder that basics are an underappreciated fashion weapon - versatile, cheap, and simple. Each piece is easy to find and gets a LOT of mileage. Who doesn’t like an easy hunt and a bigger bang for your buck?
A solid set of basics includes different colored camis, comfortable jeans (both dark and light), solid colored pumps, standard white button-up shirt, khakis, cardigans, and a classic little black dress. Basically anything that will go well with almost anything else, can be worn in a variety of different outfits, or is unlikely to go out of style. Why these kinds of clothes are cents-ible (hehe get it?) should be obvious.
Also when thinking about basics it might help to think about what kind of color palettes tend to dominate your wardrobe. Sometimes it’s good to pick clothes that will add diversity to your wardrobe, but there’s also something quiet fashionable about figuring out what colors and silhouettes look best on you and making selections that fit into that scheme. This way you will be more selective and everything you buy will likely match something else you already have so you don’t have to buy full sets.
So with that I’m out of ideas. Hope you guys enjoyed and happy shopping!
