STYLE ADVICE FOR THE WEEK: Know Your Basics

STYLE ADVICE FOR THE WEEK: Know Your Basics

We all have that go-to outfit. We throw it on when we are in a rush and need to look like we have our lives together. I usually resort to this outfit when my plan doesn’t make it to the runway of life. Most Fashionistas/os know within a few seconds which favorite basics to grab because they will never fail them. If you don’t know what yours are you might need to pull a Carrie Bradshaw and have a mini fashion show until you figure it out.

When I spotted this Fashionista, I knew that she understood this basic principle. Honestly, this outfit is great because it could be used for date night, tailgating, class or any other occasion. It all starts with the black T-shirt dress. Depending on your style you could switch it up with a black mini dress or a midi dress.

This Fashionista decided to add a light cardigan so she can keep warm during a breezy day. The length adds so much to this outfit which makes it look effortlessly chic. Wear minimal accessories and this is the perfect class look. A statement necklace could be added to transition this outfit to a night out, or wear your school colors for tailgating with a tartan game day scarf.

The black pair of booties is an essential shoe. This Fashionista found these Western-styled booties from Forever 21 and has since then worn them every chance she has gotten. With just these three basic items, any Fashionista can feel stylish and comfortable all day long.
