A true Fashionista must have an impeccable sense of style but she also needs a great wardrobe, right? And a great wardrobe consists of trendy pieces, yes. But more importantly, a great wardrobe should consist mainly of staple items that can be continuously reinvented and restyled as trends evolve. So, to celebrate the underrated yet fundamental pieces of one’s wardrobe, I have decided to show you how to style this basic off-white BCBGeneration sweater I snagged from Macy’s mstylelab in three fabulous ways.
This first look is perfect for a “girls night out” in the city to celebrate the end of winter finals. Of course, I started off the outfit with the BCBGeneration sweater as the starting point. Then, in order to add some serious Rachel Zoe glamour to my look, I opted to layer this super chic multi-colored faux-fur vest by Guess? on top of the sweater. To finish off the look, I paired the outfit with an oversized clutch and topped it all off with this super glam wide-brimmed hat to bring the feeling of glamour together.
The second look is the most basic of all, which is ideal for running errands around the city, heading to class or hitting the books. This type of outfit is definitely my go-to on days when I want to feel lazily comfortable while looking put together all at the time. Seems impossible I know, but I’ve come up with a formula! I simply paired the same oversized sweater with some heavy weight leggings and jazzed up the look with a silk scarf, the perfect fall leather boots and a bold dark lip.
For my final look, I was definitely feeling inspired by the whole grunge scene that has been making a comeback for a few seasons now. This outfit could definitely take you from a study “sesh” during the day to a cool city concert at night. I layered this incredible BCBGeneration plaid button-down atop of the sweater and threw on a beanie to give the look a true fall feel. Finished off the outfit with my leather boho bag and a pair of converse giving the outfit a casually chic vibe and I was ready to hit the town!
