Being a lady is an attitude. It is more than the way you walk or talk, it is the way you carry yourself and the very air in which you work. Fashion today has become more than simply expressing yourself, it is a lifestyle. And what’s one thing every Fashionista would not be caught dead without in her arsenal? The answer comes in the form of basics: black. This classic look is a staple for any real, strong woman making her way through the rough and tough fashion world around her.
Black is a neutral color that you can match with anything. This Fashionista exhibits a prime example of how to work all the basic building blocks of fashion, in all the right ways. She is ready for the heat of summer in her flirty black shirt, and perfectly sheltered from the sun in a hat. No sun kissed skin here! Her oversized, black purse from Zara is perfect for the girl on the go, and can fit all her essentials for a day out on the town. Coupled with her leather handbag, her Topshop boots provide just the support and comfort her feet need on this blistering day, all the while maintaining her classic edge and portraying a confident attitude. Despite the present summer scorcher, this Fashionista keeps it cool with the basics.
How To: Running low on space as you find yourself planning a weekend trip out of town? No worries! Packing the basics, like a classic black skirt or cute hat allow for mixing and matching and save valuable space. Switch out a hat for a statement necklace to turn a day look into elegant evening wear. Or add red lipstick to give this basic black getup the classic Audrey Hepburn feel. No matter what the event, you simply cannot go wrong with basics. Some people say orange is the new black, but if you ask me, black is back and bolder than ever!
