“In a world full of trends, I wish to remain a classic” was so rightly said by Iman of YSL fame.
In the dynamism filled world of trends, where outfits play a vital role of being the people we are, we often find ourselves struggling with living on a budget, being lazy, yet always looking in vogue. Here we have a roundup of 7 key pieces which will uplift your outfit and ensure that you always look chic.
- The Fluid – The all occasion White Blouse or Shirt
Probably the most versatile garment you’d ever own! A well fitted shirt or blouse makes the perfect last minute outfit. Dress it up with a stunning statement necklace, or down with a pair of frayed shorts and you have the quintessential high street look you’ve always craved for.
- The Second Skin – Denim
Our pick is a classic dark wash, in a navy or black – in a style that is comfortable and well fitted. A pair of well fitted jeans can do wonders to your curves, making you feel like a million bucks!
- The Sharpness – A well-tailored Blazer
In a black or a navy, this is the absolute Pick me Up piece in the wardrobe. A blazer almost magically makes you look put-together and sharp. Don’t limit yourself to having this as a part of your formal garb – play with it, throw it on a pair or cut off shorts or distressed denim, with a cheeky bralet, for a hint of sexy, with minimalistic gold accessories and what you have is a gorgeous brunch outfit.
- The Parisian Tale – A Striped Tee
This will make your quintessential Parisian guise. For days when you want to channel your inner Bridget Bardot, and be the exemplary IT girl, a striped tee will act as a wardrobe essential which is “the glue” that makes other items in your wardrobe work together to create a cohesive outfit. Why we love it is because, of how effortlessly it packs a visual punch, being an absolute modern classic with a high longevity to it.
- The Paparazzi Inviting – Over sized Sunglasses
Girls, we know and admit that some days, especially days after a fun night out, when your overly smudged kohl can’t pass off as a decent smoky eye, you need a cover. And nothing makes a strong statement other than a pair of sunglasses. It instantly uplifts your face, hides what you want to and makes you look polished – almost ready to conquer the world. Having a perfect pair of sunglasses works absolute wonders!
- The Classic – Little Black Dress
Coco Chanel is often credited with inventing and popularizing the little black dress, and this ladies, is a fashion uniform. It’s the perfect night out outfit. This and a killer pair of heels and you’re guaranteed to look as chic as Audrey herself! The LBD is not just a dress, it is an armor of the modern woman.
- The Trotters – Shoes
Well, to us women, our shoes are our one true love, but when building a capsule wardrobe, it is best to stick to the basics – a pair of ballerinas and a pair of heels of your choice in black and a nude. As much as we hate to admit, it is only these two sets of footwear that one really needs.
