Before I left for Paris, I did a clean up of my wardrobe. I gave away some stuff for charity, and some of my things are on sale on my Depop account. I try to downsize a little because I’m always wearing the same things since I don’t feel like going through all my stuff every day.
In this post, you find my 1O basics that I think you can’t live without (or at least some of them).
Neutral shirts are my #1 essential, you can wear them with basically everything, you can dress them up and you can dress them down and they will look good. Go for black, white, grey,….. Mix & match and you can create an outfit for most occasions.
A good jeans
Everyone should have a good pair of jeans they can go back to every time they don’t actually know what to wear. A dark washed pair is, in my opinion, the best choice, since you can wear it casual, as well as semi-formal when dressed up well.
A pair of dressed pants
When the event is too formal to wear dark washed jeans, you can grab your dressed pant. These are always appropriate! Combined with sneakers, you can wear them casual as well.
A trench coat
I’m a coat fan! But the trench coat is my favourite. When wearing my trench coat, I feel more classy, it really does wonders for your appearance.
A pair of lacquer shoes
Lacquer shoes, heels or flats, are the perfect accessory to any outfit. It dresses up and looks very chic.
A good pair of sneakers
What lacquer shoes are for dressing up an outfit, the sneaker is to dress down. Every girl should have a pair they can walk in for miles, perfect for a casual day out with friends.
A cosy sweatshirt
Sweatshirts are my favourite casual wear. They are perfect for a casual day out, are warm (good when you are always cold like me) and you can get them with cool quotes (because t-shirts are not that useful in winter when covered up).
A blazer is super versatile, it upgrades an outfit, and can be used as a light jacket when it’s too hot to wear an actual jacket but too cold to walk around without one.
A black dress
If you are someone who likes to wear dresses, a black dress is a must. I have different of them and see myself reaching for them very often. My favourite is my Scapa dress because it goes from summer to winter perfectly.
A blouse is something that can never go wrong. Enough said.
