As both a girly girl and fashion lover, I never pass up the opportunity to go shopping for some cute clothes. Even if you don’t consider yourself a fashionista or trendsetter, it’s important that you have a few essential fashion basics. These basics can be combined with so many different accessories and jewelry, so the possibilities are endless and you’ll always look great. Check out our 10 fashion pieces to revamp your style.
A Little Black Dress (LBD)
You can seriously never have too many little black dresses, and this is a basic that looks great on practically everyone. Since there are so many styles and fits, it’s possible for everyone to find one that fits correctly. Little black dresses work great with red and leopard print. If you’re rocking an LBD with red lipstick, red heels, and a leopard clutch or belt, you are going to look SO fierce. No questions asked.
A Red Dress
A red dress is one of those aspects of style that always pleases, and the “wow” factor of a red dress is timeless, just like red lipstick! Wearing red is also a great confidence booster, so even on your worst days, you can feel great. Similar to the LBD, the LRD also works well with leopard print, as well as black.
A White Dress
A white dress is a summer staple. It looks so cute with a glowing tan or with beachy waves and no makeup. There are also plenty of white lace dresses on the market, which add a bit more flair and a feminine touch. A white dress works well with ANY color so feel free to mix it up and have some fun!
A Floral Dress
A floral dress, just like a white dress, with a splash of feminine detail. There’s something about a floral dress that makes you feel so happy and full of youth, so you’re sure to have a big smile on your face when you slip one on. They look great in the summer, and are great on days where you don’t feel like accessorizing so much, since their details and bright colors speak for themselves.
A Basic Black Tee
Black tees work like magic because they go with practically everything. It’s cozy, slimming and comfortable without looking sloppy. To make a black tee pop, just pair it with a bold scarf like floral or leopard print.
A Basic White Tee
A white tee is just like a black tee in the sense that you can accessorize it in any way that you choose. It also goes well with a bold scarf of your choosing. The elegant and fashionable way that colorful jewelry looks on a white tee, such as a bright coral necklace or turquoise earrings, is also a great bonus.
A Cute and Comfortable Blazer
What’s best about blazers is they are being advertised as a casual piece as well, rather than a work-only garment. A coral or mint blazer is a great option since they are both fairly versatile, and they’re both work and play appropriate. Both colors look great with a white tank, or with a black and white striped top or dress.
A Statement Blouse
A statement blouse looks great with a pair of dark denim jeans. A fabulous and classic pattern is polka dots, but floral print and neon also work well. The current blouses on the market are very sheer, so be sure that you pair them with a camisole or a proper bra.
A Pencil/Body Con Skirt
These skirts are both work appropriate and stylish enough for going out, if you pick the right one! They also come in SO many patterns and colors that it’s easy to mix and match them, like with your black or white tee and some pretty jewelry!
Dark Denim Skinny or Straight Leg Jeans
Dark denim jeans look so great on everyone, and just like the other fashion basics, they can be mixed and matched with everything, including awesome shoes! So, go crazy, since the possibilities truly are endless.
Ladies, you most likely own at least a few of these fashion basics. If you don’t and you’re looking for new pieces to add to your wardrobe, I suggest that you add these picks for their versatility and comfort!
