BASICS ARENT BASIC WHEN WORN WITH THE RIGHT ATTITUDE!
In true minimalist nature, less is more, and when you truly invest in basics, they can be worn again and again without fail! Cotton is my go-to fabric for summer, and no matter where you are headed, it’s perfect and effortless for any lightweight look. It’s a FACT: A plain-white-tee that can be dressed up or down a million ways. All it takes is a subtle change: try swapping a dainty accessory with a chunky statement piece, add a heel or sport a flat. When you think of your plain-white-tee as a blank canvas, anything is possible!
I loved getting to style this THE GREAT peplum tee after a recent shopping trip to Verdalina here in Richmond! Remember when I styled a similar tank for summer? By updating the look with a olive green pair of utility ankle pants, This look almost completely and effortlessly transforms! With two very similar pieces, we created a summer number, and a great transitional look for fall!
Don’t you love how sporting basics can help you budget too? Having those essentials in your closet at the ready for any change in season means less splurging. As the seasons change, make it a point of seeking out pieces with timeless lines, or potential for remixing! Pieces like these are the backbone of any wardrobe, and can be worn all year round!
By also remixing the accessories for each of these looks, we were able to change up the mood entirely! Transitioning from a dainty and lightweight approach to accessories to a stark piece by Fairchild Baldwin, it created a completely different perspective. I love that so much about personal style! I can imagine this dressed up with a moto jacket, dark denim, and booties for a great cool-weather look too!
Consuming less means conserving more, and shopping with intention can lead to innovation!
Check out these amazing mix-and-match pieces for the upcoming summer/fall transition!
