It has become more and more difficult for the typical Fashionista to get ready for her day. Digging through piles of clothes and struggling to pick the most radically fashion-forward clothing combo becomes the normal routine. Usually after switching up your look multiple times, you leave still wondering if somehow you could’ve picked a better top, accessory to match or if you remembered to brush your teeth in your hasty exit. Sometimes the key to nailing the perfect outfit and consistent dental hygiene is just to keep it basic.
Apiece Apart‘s spring 2014 ready-to-wear line easily proves my point. Sticking with modern, clean designs, this collection truly brings you back to the basics. While there are splashes of color here and there, the theme mostly revolves around the use of neutrals, mild patterns and the most crucial piece for any basic wardrobe: a simple white top.
Owning a solid white top is the secret behind cracking the code of a perfect wardrobe. Depending on your preference, really any solid color will do. Here, I chose to be a bit of a Plain Jane. Easily matching everything you throw its way, my basic white V-neck was the only way I could think to start of this look.
Every simple top needs a partner in crime, and what better way to keep to the basics than with a pair of my favorite dark wash jeans. Cuffed to highlight the ankle and partnered with a strappy heel to mimic the flats in the Apiece Apart line, this outfit was completed. Just like that, my day is ready to begin—worry free, simply chic and with a clean set of brushed teeth.
Some pieces in your wardrobe are impossible to live without. Do your closet a favor, and stock it with the basics.
