Don't have time to read the whole post? I understand! Scroll to the bottom for my 5 min takeaway!
While I love me some neutrals, there is nothing quite like a pretty color combo! I try to have a good base of neutral colored staples, i.e.shoes, denim, outerwear, and tops. You can build a lot of different looks with just the basics. However, I do like to keep my eye out for some statement pieces to throw in the mix, (okay, let's be honest, I love my statement pieces as much as my neutrals ;) like this pretty lace top and tassel bag! It's also an easy way to look stylish without much effort!
If you're just starting out on building a wardrobe you love, start with classic pieces that you can re wear and mix and match for several outfit options. I've had this jacket for several years now and it pairs well with so many things. I can wear it with a dress and sandals. A white button up, dark blue denim, and some pumps. Or even a t-shirt, some distressed jeans, and sneakers. Catching my drift? The outfit possibilities are endless! Start with pieces like these. These are also the pieces you want to invest in. My black denim was something I invested in because they are a staple for me. Come fall, I'm wearing them nearly every day.
The focus of this look was the lace top and the tassel bag. The texture of the lace makes enough of a statement, while the mix of colors are subtle, they still pop against the rest of the outfit.
Your wardrobe foundation should be neutral basics as you can create endless outfit combinations. If adding a statement piece, that should be the focus. The statement piece can be anything from shoes, to your dress, to your jewelry. Everything else should complement this piece without taking away from it.
Take a look at your closet. Are there recurring themes? Types of pieces? What do you feel most confident in? Do you live in sneakers or heels? Those are your basics! Invest in those because those are the pieces you will wear most often and can easily build upon.
