INVESTING IN BASICS

HOW TO WEAR BASICS

This post is all about basic pieces and how to incorporate them into your everyday look. Investing in high quality basic pieces is the cornerstone of a successful wardrobe.

In this outfit I incorporated all basic pieces to form a funky casual outfit. A black wool crewneck sweater from Banana Republic is a great layering piece and keeps me cozy, I am also a fan of solid turtlenecks in black, grey and navy.

I recently scored a sweet deal on these J Crew skinny jeans…half price, who hoo! They fit like a glove and are distressed enough to be edgy but still qualify as a basic. A dark jean of any description (skinny, straight or wide leg) is a basic that every girl should have in her closet.

A leather moto jacket has turned into a basic piece in the modern wardrobe…I LOVE mine from BCBG MaxAzria! I wear it constantly over dresses, with jeans and with a fur vest thrown over top.

I have a weakness for Mr. Weitzman…high quality footwear that you will put on repeat. They do have a high price tag attached to them but all of my Weitzman boots have delivered. These moto boots are so comfortable and the tweed upper gives a bit of softness to balance out the tough studs and chains…I feel a little bad ass when I wear them. I also love to pair them with a very feminine flirty dress.

To complete my look a basic black leather handbag, this is my everyday bag that fits all my essentials (including my son’s trucks and tractors). I have added some extra pizazz with a large black leather tassel and a fur pom pom.

Happy Wednesday to you all and thank you for taking the time to read my post. I know this time of year is as hectic as they come.

Your friend in fashion…amy.
