How to style your basic clothes. How to put your everyday clothes together in a stylish way.
This post will give you a few simple outfit formulas to style your basics, which you can then apply to your own wardrobe.
Three Different Colors
Getting three colors and putting them on your body is an easy approach to put together your basics.
Your top is one color, your bottom is another color and your shoes are yet another color. Alternatively, your pants are one hue, your top is another, and your jacket is a third.
Typically, your basic foundational elements are neutrals that go together and aren’t so striking that when you combine three of them, you end up looking like a clown.
In the summer, or if you live somewhere where it gets really hot, I’d make a one-color top. The bottom is a different color, and the shoes are a different color. We couldn’t wear jackets because we’d be too hot.
The Same Color
Another approach to make your basics look more interesting, or create an outfit formula, is to have the same color pants and shoes and then a different color top.
This looks great with black, as well as brown and white. This will lengthen your legs, giving you a taller and thinner appearance.
It’s a stunning style, and every time I see it, especially the black on black, gray, or dark gray on black, I think it’s really stylish.
You can wear this with just about any top, including your printed or statement tops.
If you have a decent variety of basics, you can pull together monochrome outfits using only one hue.
You have black dark gray, and black to choose from. Alternatively, combine all of your browns. Alternatively, combine all of your whites. I adore white winter clothing and white summer outfits; they’re both stunning.
This is great for summer because you aren’t wearing a lot of clothes yet it still appears like an outfit.
Add a Jacket
Another thing to remember is that you can wear any jacket with any of these outfits, regardless of whether it’s fall, winter, or spring.
Add a jacket to your white t-shirt and jeans. Adding one of your basic jackets, such as a blazer, trench coat, or moto jacket, to any of these pieces will make it look more polished and put together. It has the appearance of a model off duty.
I’m not sure if you’ve seen celebrities wearing a hoodie, a pair of jeans, combat boots, or anything similar (that sounds pretty plain, very casual) and then layering a blazer on top of it. It looks fantastic, and it’s quite elegant.
It’s like, how did she come up with that, putting the blazer over the hoodie?
A hoodie isn’t on my list of essentials for every woman, but I’m sure we all have one. So, let’s assume you’re having a day where you’re running late and you only have a few minutes to get ready. You may dress casually with a hoodie, jeans, and a blazer. You’ll be the most fashionable person in the room.
This tip is arguably the most popular in any article like this, but I feel compelled to include it since it is crucial.
You should improve your accessories.
If you are a jewelry lover and already have some, you are fine to go. If you’re afraid of accessories and don’t know where to begin, it’s time to change your mind.
Begin by adding a pair of earrings, a necklace, and a watch or a belt to your ensemble. Belts, especially in the fall and winter, make such a statement.
Adding those simple accessories to your outfit will transform your essentials into a fashionable outfit with very little effort.
If you’re a scarf wearer, scarves and basics are a great match.
A pair of sunglasses is another extremely easy item that people forget about, and they don’t realize it can be a whole part of their outfit, and it can make your entire outfit.
Spend some time looking for a pair of sunglasses that you like and that suit your face well. You can get the $20 ones if you don’t want to spend a lot of money.
I do buy the more expensive ones because I want to ensure that my eyes are well protected, but pick some really colorful sunglasses and make them a part of your outfit.
You’re not going to wear sunglasses indoors, of course. It’s impolite. Outside, though, it’s a part of your outfit. Maybe you can wear them on your head indoors and they’ll still be part of your outfit.
This is especially significant in the summer because we sweat more and can’t wear all of these items. The best we can do is concentrate on the color scheme or a single color, then add some cute accessories.
The next piece of advice I have for you is specifically for summer or hot areas.
Put on your basic top and bottoms, add some sunglasses or a hat, jewelry, a watch or a belt, or whatever other accessories you have, and then pay attention to your feet and what’s on them.
That is a component of your outfit, and wearing rubber flip-flops will completely detract from it.
Don’t overthink it; just make sure you have some attractive clean sandals, white sneakers, or purple sneakers ready.
Make sure it matches your outfit and adds to it rather than detracting from it.
