The key to a successful wardrobe is to have foundational items that are versatile, flattering and classic. In my opinion, when you have these basic items in your wardrobe, you will never run out of things to wear. That being said, the interpretation of basics can differ from person to person depending on their personal style.
But regardless of what we consider basic garments, these pieces become the foundation of our outfits, therefore, the best candidates to wear with seasonal or trendy pieces. However today, I wanted to do the opposite. Instead of pairing my basics with of-the-moment garments, I decided to wear them with other basics. I actually wanted to challenge myself in creating a fun look with only foundational items.
WHAT I WORE:
Trench coat: Burberry. Similar/Denim Jacket: Levi's (vintage). New version/T-shirt: Barney's New York. Similar/Boyfriend jeans: J. Brand. Similar/Quilted bag: Kate Spade. Similar/Sunglasses: Ray-Ban (vintage). New style./Beret: Kangol. Similar/Nude pumps: Christian Louboutin.
I've always found denim jackets very useful. Denim jackets are very easy to wear and layer, but the most important thing is that they can be worn all year round. The same goes with jeans and, in my case, boyfriend jeans are the ones that are most appealing to me.
FIND THE PERFECT BOYFRIEND JEANS:
Regardless of a woman's or man's style, in my opinion, a trench coat is a garment that should be seriously considered. This is a universal piece of outerwear that not only is multifunctional by itself but is also wearable with anything you think of.
FIND THE PERFECT TRENCH:
I love hats in general, however, I find the beret hat the most classic and chic. I don't know, maybe it's because of its cliche symbol of Parisian style.
FIND THE PERFECT BERET:
A white t-shirt is no doubt an important basic piece for me. I keep re-stocking my wardrobe every year because I give them plenty of abuse.
FIND THE PERFECT WHITE T-SHIRT:
This look is not only composed of foundation pieces, but it also has some of my favorite colors, such as army green, blue, white and black.
FIND THE PERFECT BLUE DENIM JACKET:
Classic pumps are my weakness, and if they come in neutral colors, it's even better. I'm very picky about buying shoes in general, but with pumps, I'm even more finicky.
FIND THE PERFECT NUDE PUMPS:
I hope this post motivates you to mix and match your basics and also to invest in foundational pieces based in your own style.
