As I get older, I’ve reduced my spendings on useless clothing pieces and have turned to investing into greater wardrobe staples that will truly last me for quite some time. Here’s what I’ve learned when building the perfect wardrobe.
For one, always invest in key pieces before splurging out on a seasonal items. Make sure you have a few good quality pieces like a simple black and white tee before you decide to buy that white designer top with a crazy motif on it. It will soon enough become last season’s must have top and you’ll be screwed with nothing to wear. I seriously recommend in investing in tees by Velvet, they’re more costly but they’ll last you forever and are so comfy.
Secondly, make sure you have a good pair of all year round sneakers so either a good all white pair or my absolute fave style by Nike the Thea’s.
Lastly, always by tops in one size bigger, you want pieces to last a while but also fit for a good period of time too. I’m normally a size XS but I like to buy all my tees and tops in a size small, they last longer and always fit just right. Once, you’ve got your basic white and black tee, your all year round sneakers and a really good pair of denim, I would recommend to either invest in a pair of Frame, AG or Jbrand then you’re ready to splurge on whatever your heart desires.
Happy Hump Day!
Zara always carries the best affordable seasonal pieces like this camel vest featured in these pictures. I’ve been dying over any vest these days and this one is just AH-mazing, in the tone I was looking for too. As you might of already noticed I’m not very big on jewelry, although I can’t go anywhere without my rings and earrings. In this look, I decided to pair more of a statement earring rather than my everyday little diamond studs, which I received as a gift years and years ago.
I would have to say that what I love most about this look, is how it can easily transform into a day to night look by simply adding a pair of pointy pumps or gladiator style sandals. Most outfits that can be worn at any time of the day are my absolute favourites because you never know when you’ll receive a call from a friend asking if you want to grab a bite to eat later that day. Oh, and don’t forget to ALWAYS leave a pair of heels and sneakers in your car. ALWAYS, you’ll thank me one day!
