even though summer is all about easy breezy clothes there are certain times when only the basics will do. that is summer basics. when in doubt as to what to wear i always reach for the basics. these are the workhorses hanging in your closet that go with everything. and we all need a go-to outfit now and then.
what are the core pieces needed to build your wardrobe’s foundation? well, the basics aren’t glamorous. they don’t grab your attention when you step into your favorite store. there are no ruffles, bows, or sequins attached. but i promise, if you want to be well dressed or look effortlessly chic you have to build your wardrobe with the basics. and you can never have too many wardrobe staples. these are the pieces that easily transition from outfit to outfit and span the seasons. the more basics you have on hand, the more outfit options available.
wardrobe basics come in a variety of styles but they always stick to neutral colors. nude, black, grey, white. if you have the basics on hand getting dressed in the morning just got a whole lot easier. blue jeans and a tee (old, similar here) always make my list. as do nude pumps and neutral handbag (similar here).
look for tunics as well as tees. tunics cover your assets beautifully especially if you’re inclined to wear leggings. if you prefer sleeveless or short sleeve tunics for summer here’s a roundup.
nude shoes are a must-have wardrobe essential. shoe height is up to you.
