Elevate Your Favorite Wardrobe Basics
Favorite wardrobe basics?? The basics in your wardrobe are staples for a reason — they just work. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t new ways to instantly elevate them. Whether it is adding a statement accessory or an interesting jacket, think of the basics in your wardrobe as a capsule collection you can build infinite outfits with. From your little black dress to your favorite white t-shirt, we outline some ways to upgrade your wardrobe staples.
Get inspired by ‘80s fashion and use a puff-sleeve top to upgrade your favorite skinny jeans.
Don’t be afraid to use jewelry to elevate your look — especially pearl jewelry. Freshwater pearls in modern designs feel right for spring. Incorporate the latest trend of white freshwater pearl necklaces into your favorite outfits for an instant upgrade. A pair of low-heeled mules will complete the look – a nod to the ‘80s, mules are fashion-forward and actually wearable. This is a great outfit for any casual work setting because it feels trendy, yet appropriate for an office. To instantly make your skinny jeans ready for date night, try out one of the season’s other biggest trends — leather. Skinny jeans, strappy sandals, and a faux leather top make the perfect outfit for a night out on the town.
To make your favorite white button-up spring ready, incorporate a silk scarf and woven bag into your look. A pair of espadrilles and plain gold hoops will keep things casual and put together for any activity. This is the perfect outfit for your weekends because it can take you from Saturday’s farmers market to dinner with friends. For any work activities, a white button-up, a silky slip skirt, and a pair of white mules look trendy yet professional. Add a blazer to look instantly more polished.
Little Black Dress
The easiest way to dress up an LBD is a standout accessory. For any casual activities, look polished and not overdressed in a little black dress, denim jacket, and the latest pearl accessories. Pearl hoops are a more modern take on the classic pearl studs. To instantly take this look into date night, swap out your denim jacket for a blazer or leather moto jacket. Complete your look with booties and a little black bag.
Plain White T-Shirt
There’s a reason a white t-shirt is a staple in your closet — it goes with absolutely everything. To instantly look trendy, pair your jeans and a white t-shirt with an oversized blazer. To keep things casual, add your favorite pair of sneakers or dress it up with a pair of strappy sandals for spring. This season’s must-have accessory? A thick gold chain necklace to instantly transform your white t-shirt. Wear it from work to happy hour to date night.
