What’s the best way to tackle the tricky midseason weather? Mix and match basic wardrobe staples. It works whether it’s for a presentation or day-to-day wear. There are so many outfit combinations you can make from essential pieces—just take a hint from classic European fashion! What I love about this Fashionsta’s ensemble is that she tackled the perfect style for looking chic; it’s put together and yet still relaxed. Definitely killing two birds with one stone, she conquered both comfort and classic style with ease.

One of my favorite wardrobe staples has always been a crisp button-up dress shirt. Every girl should own a few, since they are incredibly versatile, not to mention perfect for when you’re feeling like achieving the traditional preppy look. Since mid-season weather can still be a bit cold, layer a comfy yet slightly oversized sweater over the structured shirt. It’s a quick tip to look perfectly disheveled and still a bit tomboyish.

If you’re focusing on an outfit created with a mix of basic pieces, adding a pair of shoes with some visual interest can be the perfect touch. Who doesnt love a pair of strappy leather booties? This Fashionista finished off her look with a delicate stacked gold necklace, which balances out the texture of the sweater.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “It’s usually difficult to figure out what to wear if you’re constantly buying pieces with a lot of visual interest, so stick to basic, classic pieces to get the most wear out of your wardrobe!”
