Basic pieces are something that all of us have in our closet but I think not all of us fully take advantage of many different ways there are to wear them. Blue jeans, white shirt, black pants, brown riding boots, camel coat, each one of this pieces are present among so many people’s closet because of the versatility and ease to wearing them. Pretty much all basic pieces can work with every other basic staple as well as can be paired but statement pieces and still make the outfit wearable in the streets. Although these items are all in our closet I think often we tend to go to the statement pieces and are a little afraid of wearing something so minimalistic of fear of being called “basic” or “ordinary” but when a great chic look is done well it can make the largest statement.
Try to make a statement this week without wearing your usually statement pieces, search for items with ease and layer them to add depth to your look; it can be really breathtaking. When shopping next look for pieces with interesting shape and texture, go for the classic grey that you KNOW will always be in style instead of the it color now. Give your beautiful face a break from harsh heavy makeup and opt for a natural light look that highlights your best features, adding just a pop of color with your lip balm. Play around with different shades of color, white on white, dark grey with light, knit sweat with leather leggings the combination of ways is there, you just have to look for other ideas to play off of. Here are some of my favorite looks for you to check out.http://www.pinterest.com/pin/540291286520139198/
