I have recently become more interested in timeless clothing that will live on in my wardrobe for a length of time. I am usually one to stay away from the fast fashion hauling and opt more for better quality and classic designs. For me, it is about finding creative ways to re-wear some of my favorite basics during the seasons without having an I have nothing to wear moment.
You would not find certain basic outfits gathering dust in my wardrobe for very long. As a working mom on the go, wraps, pashmina shawl, ponchos, and scarfs are one of the "must-haves" in my wardrobe. Apart from the basic white tee and a few neutral colored clothes, wraps, stoles, or scarfs allow me the freedom to style my look appropriately in a new and unique way. For this reason, I have a number of wraps and scarfs in a variety of colors and style.
An important part of every wardrobe is to have a few bold pieces to turn a simple outfit into an effortless one. When it comes to fashion, everything is a balance. It is all about finding that thin line between practicality, accessorizing with a few bold embellishments, and learning how to wear your clothes differently. The best way to maximize what you already have is to either accessorize or add statement items that can update your look. These earrings add a pop of color to the entire look while the bold print from the wrap elevates the outfit to become effortlessly luxe.
As I have gotten older, I have shaped and defined my personal style by embracing fashion pieces that work for me and providing an edited point of view. A wrap, colorful earrings, or extravagant scarf or pashmina shawl can change up an entire look so that it appears completely new. Accessories are something you can dress up or down and mix and match. I always invest in a wrap since it is great for daytime casual wear but can also be worn to more formal outings or a night out.
How do you like to elevate your basic pieces to create a luxe look?
