Whenever you set out to build something it is always important to start with a strong foundation. This goes for your work wardrobe as well. Without sturdy building blocks you cannot create a stable and professional look.
We think Fall is the perfect time to take a look at your wardrobe and make sure you have all the right pieces to build around. You will be putting away your flimsy summer clothes and relying on more durable styles. Over the next two weeks we’d like you to take a look at styles you would consider the basics of your wardrobe. What shape are they in? Make sure they still fit, the hems are intact, and none of your buttons are missing. Have any blemishes repaired. These are the go to pieces in your wardrobe, they need to be ready!
What do we consider basics? Black is generally considered a core basic in almost any article of clothing. We want you to take a look at the colors in your wardrobe and identify the best neutral shades to compliment your wardrobe. This may be brown, charcoal, or even olive. Here are some more items we will be covering over the coming months.
1- Black Pants
2- Solid Skirt
3- White Blouse
4- Fitted Blazer
6- Solid Dress
7- Black Shoes
8- White and Black Tshirt
To name a few of the looks we will be reviewing.
We will be showing you styles by size and highlight unique details to make your basics feel special. We will also work with Polyvore to show you how important basics are to making your outfits simple and chic. For example, this outfit utilizes your black pants, white blouse, and cardigan. Then popped the look with shoes and jewelry.
