Today’s post is sponsored by Nordstrom
Have you ever wondered how to build a classic outfit? It all starts with the wardrobe staples. Those are the items that are workhorses in your closet. They’re the wardrobe essentials that will carry you from season to season and make getting ready in the morning a breeze.
When you take the time to invest in the basics, you are laying a foundation for a functional wardrobe that will prepare you for anything. Off to work on Monday morning? Headed to a charity luncheon? How about date night? Or a quick weekend getaway? If you have the basics on hand, there will be no more struggles to create a fabulous outfit for any occasion. It’s important to build your wardrobe staples with neutrals: navy, black, grey, camel, and white. ( olive and burgundy are great alternatives.)
Today I'm focusing on how to build a classic outfit
I'm working off of a pair of bootcut trousers from FRAME
I've built an outfit shoppable via a text or image widget
I've also created two alternates shoppable via a text widget
Today’s outfit is a perfect example of a classic outfit anchored in a neutral color scheme. It’s a simple black tee and camel pants. Add a black blazer, key accessories, and this simple ootd is ready to take you anywhere. The retailer I count on to stock my wardrobe essentials is Nordstrom which carries affordable Nordstrom Made brands to luxury designers and everything in between.
When it comes to wardrobe staples don’t be afraid to invest in those pieces. A well made blazer, trousers, silk blouse, silk scarf, belts, or handbags will last for years and are easier on your wallet (and the environment) than fast fashion.
