STYLE ADVICE: Upgrade Your Basics

STYLE ADVICE: Upgrade Your Basics

We’ve all read or watched the interviews with our favorite style icons in which they reveal their top five closet essentials. From Gigi to Angelina, it’s been confirmed over and over again that a closet can’t truly be complete without a great pair of jeans, a white button-up blouse and a denim jacket. These are basic pieces that you’ll be pulling out of your closet to wear long after graduation, as they are more timeless than red lipstick and Jennifer Aniston’s face. These are the pieces you can’t live without.

Now, basic pieces are completely essential and definitely the most important part of any Fashionista/o’s wardrobe, but sometimes they need a little something-something to make the look a little more interesting and stand out. This Fashionista gave her basics a major facelift in the most dreamiest of ways, starting with her Chloe booties. The detail on these booties make this outfit anything but basic. She also adds a Saint Laurent bag and a Gucci belt with beautiful gold detail, adding exactly what this look needs.

This Fashionista is super on-trend and radiating coolness with her upgraded denim jacket from Understated Leather, and if you’re like me, you’ll be dreaming about it for weeks. She is also wearing ripped jeans from J.Crew and an ASOS blouse.

Sometimes we forget that basic pieces don’t have to equal boring outfits, and this look is a perfect reminder of that. Try showing your closet essentials a little love, and have some fun with the accessories and pieces you pair with them. A fabulous shoe, wearing your jacket as a cape, or a gorgeous bag will do just the trick—just ask this Fashionista!
