Hey there! Another week has gone by… hope everyone didn’t struggle too much. Bright side - it’s the weekend!
Today, I’ll be talking about #thebasics! Pieces I feel like everyone should have in their wardrobe. I’ve included some links of things I personally would buy. They are not affiliate links just wanted to share some options in case you’re up for adding new basics to your wardrobe! 😉
ONE. V NECK TEES:
The epitome of basic! I normally don’t like to go for 100% cotton tees, I feel like they never last long for me. I recently bought my favorite black v neck from TJMaxx. I love a good loose fit tee in white and black.
TIP! Don’t forget - wander and check out the v necks from the men’s section. No crime there.
TWO. HIGH WAISTED JEANS:
High waisted jeans just hold you in in all the right places and I love wearing them with cropped tops.
My current favorite pair is from Fashionnova. They cover a pretty good spectrum when it comes to sizes - from 00 – 3x. ALSO their sizes include a ‘short option’ which I wish was there when I was ordering!
I took some scissors to my pair because there was just too much fabric at my ankles (short girl problems). I will admit it took me a couple wears to really break ‘em in. I was skeptical when I initially purchased them but I have made a 180 and completely LOVE them now. I recommend giving their jeans a try 😉
Now, if you’ve read my past posts regarding clothes, you know I’m cheap. You won’t find me buying $150.00 jeans, uh nuh-uh. The great thing about FN is they’re always having a sale. Get on it, honey!
THREE. BLACK JEANS:
FIVE. YOUR STATEMENT HEEL/BOOTIE:
Everyone has their favorite ‘footwear’ in their closet, whether it be that ‘CFM’ stilletto or the latest ‘dad shoe'. I personally feel like every doll should have a statement heel and a good everyday bootie.
SIX. WHITE SHOES:
What is a wardrobe without a pair of white shoes? Pairing your outfit with white shoes gives a very different feel than pairing it with your black tennis shoes or flats. You can be just as stylish with your shoe game as you are with the clothes you put on your back 😊
I.AM.A.HUGE.FAN.OF.BODYSUITS. I have quite the collection and am frankly still adding to it lol. I think everyone needs a good bodysuit in a neutral color. They go with everything! I bought majority of my bodysuits at Forever21 but trust me, online websites have dedicated categories just to bodysuits, you’ll have no problem finding something for you. SHEIN has some great affordable ones.
Leggings are for those days where you want to be comfortable and don’t want the restriction of denim. Now, there are different types of leggings out there, ladies. Let’s find some good quality, thick black leggings that don’t expose your VS undies 😉. I like pairing leggings with tunics (long enough to cover my derriere), it almost feels like I’m wearing pajamas but I still look put together - 2 thumbs up!
NINE. DENIM JACKET:
Denim jackets! Another piece that has become a staple in clothing stores. You can never go wrong with a denim jacket and I love how there are different cuts/washes that you can choose from. Keep in mind with different styles also means different prices. So really, it depends on the style and how much you’re willing to fork out for this timeless necessity.
And there you have it! Nine basics I feel you need! You can pair them together, style them up or down, the options are endless! What are your basics? Leave them in the comments below. Hope everyone goes out and does something fun this weekend. I… I’ll be heading to do my taxes… UGH! Until next week dolls!
