I use to search and search for the perfect outfit, literally it would take a hour for me to pick out what I was going to wear. Then one day, while looking through my mom's closet (who has the best clothes and always looks put together) I had a fashion epiphany! I need certain, interchangeable, “go-to” pieces just like my mom!
Listen up, because your life is about to get easier.
Dark Wash Jeans: You can dress jeans up or down, and they’re easy to thrown on. It’s important to get a dark wash, because they tend to make you look nicer, hince more put together.
Business Suit: If you’re a college student or someone with a steady job, you never know when you’ll have to look professional. You can also mix and match the pieces for office life and everyday wear. I like to wear my blazer with jeans and dresses more than the pants that go with it!
Neutral Sweater: Not only are sweaters comfortable, they’re easy. You can easily transition your Summer clothes to Fall outfits with just simply throwing on this staple piece.
Black Pumps: You need these for everything; work, going out on the town, parties, church, the list goes on and on. Pick some that are classic, yet show your personality. Here are my personal all time favorite pumps!
Party dress: Do events ever sneak up on you and you’re left with nothing to wear, searching aimlessly through a friend’s closet? It’s happened to me many of times. The solution is have a go to party dress.
Button Down Shirt: Any color will do, you can make this sexy with your jeans, pumps, then add flashy jewelry or wear it with your business suit to work! My favorite is the Gap Boyfriend Fit, because it can be casual or dressy! Plus it's super comfortable!
Scoop Neck or V Neck Shirt: Pick any flattering color. This can casually go with your sweater or upgrade to a blazer with pumps and jeans. You can also pair it with your business suit for work!
Finally, always have something in your closet that’s you! You know when someone says, “that’s so you?” Okay that’s exactly what I mean! I have this lace vest that I throw on with everything to add a little Savannah to my outfit. If you have something you love in your closet to wear, it will make you feel more confident.
I hope this helps you dress like a pro! Feel free to leave any questions or suggestions and I’ll do my best to answer them right away!
