Back to Basics

Our wardrobes would be nothing without the basics. A good pair of heels, LBD, timeless black leather handbag. If you ever look through your closet feeling like you have nothing to wear, then I’m willing to bet you’re missing some basics.

I discovered this while purging my closet. All of the trendier pieces were distracting me from the fact that I’ve been missing some pretty crucial pieces in my wardrobe. Even looking through my basics, I’ve had to evaluate just how versatile each piece is. How many things can I realistically pair this with? I found that my white button down was a little too casual and needs to be upgraded, and my black cropped blazer with beading needs to be swapped for a more classic look.

You want the most basic of basic. The simpler, the better. Skip the embellishments, trendy hemlines, etc. I have found that none of these things enhance a wardrobe. They impede our ability to get the most out of each piece. Below, I’ve included a list of basics so you can get the most out of your wardrobe.
