Basics 2.0

fall fashion basics

When we think about basics, white blouse and black pants come to mind. Go-with-everything pieces that going beyond trends can be worn over and over again. Unfortunately when you take all seasonal connotation off your garments they can easily fall into the "boring" category.  Today we talk about basics with a twist, classic garments with personality, a compromise between classic and trendy. Update the white blouse and black trousers pattern substituting one piece at a time. Your look will be work appropriate while reflecting your style.

clockwise from up left: pink blouse - mesh black top - blue and lace top - red and lace peplum top

clockwise rom up left: cowl neck and black piping top - black and beige top - frill blouse - white and lace top
clockwise from up left: black and mesh peplum top - mesh t shirt - petroleum top - blue top

Pick an interesting basic is simple. Choose monochrome with a draped neckline or go for a  t-shirt shape in satin instead of cotton. You can see an abundace of  lace inserts above, an easy way to update a boring basic.

Starting from black pants, change color, shapes and fabrics. Try black joggers, dare to wear leather ones.
