An outfit full of basics is so simple and will never go out of style. Denim jeans with a white button up shirt, booties and a Moto jacket. Everything I just stated is a staple in ones wardrobe (at least I’d hope) and when paired together, you get a classic outfit. Building a wardrobe is like building a home, you need a good foundation. A good foundation would consist of jeans that can always be a go-to and simple tees. Tanks, racerback, t-shirts, button-ups, sweater, sweatshirt, coats, capes and jackets. Then of course you would buy aforementioned staples in all different styles, textures, etc. This is how you would build a wardrobe. Everyday I change up my style so you couldn’t even put a specific name to my type of clothing other than chameleon. I have it all from vintage, tomboy, goth, emo, mod, classic, girly (although not too much girly), etc. I love a good garage sale but then you would catch me at Bloomingdale’s. It’s so odd. For today, I was feeling extremely flowy. I wanted to be able to breathe in my clothes and look good while doing it. So of course, I accesorized! I feel that is the icing on the cake when it comes to fashion. It can take any outfit from a zero to a hero. I promise this outfit would not be cute if I didn’t add gold jewelry, an edgy choker and a spike necklace. It draws the eye to your look and makes the glance worthwhile. These jeans I got distressed but made them a little more hole-y. (Not sure if that’s a word other than used in a church, i.e. Holy) They are bootcut, not boyfriend so they weren’t too baggy which would then offset my top. I’ve been trying to steer clear of baggy clothing but for some reason I am always drawn to it. I think it’s because you can literally eat whatever you want in it and eating is my life. Getting off that tangent while I’m ahead. So back to basics, it’s always a good idea and you won’t need to worry about looking ‘basic’, when you do it properly. Accesorize, add a bold lip and strut your stuff, if you want! The world is your oyster, be the hot sauce!
