Even during this pregnancy my wardrobe staples have saved me on days when I can’t find anything to wear. You guys have seen me wear the same black slip dress over and over. How it still fits my 8 month belly, I’m not quite sure.
If you’re still not sure what a staple piece is, here’s a little breakdown…It’s basically a garment (or piece of clothing) that works as a blank canvas to create any look you want. It’s versatile. You can dress it up or dress it down. You can make it look different every single time. My little black dress for example has been worn with heels for date night. With a white tee and sneakers for a casual weekend. And even with a graphic tee & blazer for a chic pregnancy look.
It’s a smart idea to invest in versatile classic pieces like these. One, because you’ll be able to create more outfits than you can even imagine. And two, you can wear them year round and for many years without them going out of style. Here’s a few tips for starting.
How to choose the proper wardrobe staples for yourself
Think about your personal style – Whats your style? Girly, casual, comfortable? Based on the answer, go for pieces that reflect exactly that.
Go for neutral colors – I know neutrals might sound boring to a non-minimalist, but trust me, it’s neutrality is what makes them so versatile. Think blacks, whites, grey, denim, beige and even camo & leopard print.
No need to overspend – I’ve read so may articles on wardrobe staples claiming that a closet staple MUST be expensive. I beg to differ. If a $200 leather jacket isn’t within your budget, by all means find a more affordable version. I promise, a $60 faux leather moto will serve the same purpose as a $200 leather one. Totally speaking from experience here 😉
Pay attention to fit – Take your time and shop around. Try different brands and sizes until you find the perfect fit. A great fitting outfit will make ALL the difference.
Same dress, different looks. Can you tell 😉
I hope you found these tips helpful. And remember building your wardrobe will take time. Enjoy the process!
