When I go through the process of planning my outfits for the blog every week I usually try to put together outfits that are flashy and bold in some way. This week, however, I thought I’d try something a little different. I decided to wear two of my favorite fashion basics, distressed jeans and a plain white button down shirt. The great thing about wearing fashion basics is not only that they’re simple and chic. It’s also because you basically have a blank canvas to start out with. By adding accessories like a great handbag, fabulous shoes and statement jewelry, your outfit can go from simple to ornate within minutes! It really just depends on the look you’re going for. Whenever I look at magazines one of my favorite things to see is a model wearing a plain pair of jeans with a white shirt. There’s something so sophisticated about that look to me. Honestly, after this shoot, I think that’s exactly how I’ll be wearing my fashion basics from now on.
I shopped my closet for today’s look. If you’ve read some of my previous posts on shopping your closet, then you know I’m a big fan of it. Sometimes it’s much better to look into your closet to see what you have instead of spending tons of money, especially when it comes to wearing basics. Today, I’m wearing a Cotton Popover that I got from Urban Outfitters a while back. Paired with my distressed denim jeans from Target and Schutz heels, I would say this simplistic look is perfection!
Here’s my look:

In keeping with the theme of “Simplicity”, I didn’t wear much jewelry on purpose. I only wore a pair of pearl earrings and my very small necklace. You can even take away the heels and add a pair of sneakers for the perfect, comfy weekend look!
How do you style your fashion basics?
Until next time…
