If you’re sick of staring at your wardrobe (or floordrobe) struggling to piece together an outfit, you’re in desperate need of a fashion overhaul!

While we do love a good statement piece here at BB, it’s also important to have good quality basics that fit you just right. With a few trusty staple pieces, you can whip up any combo for instant model-off-duty glam!

Jeans

Jeans
Shop jeans.

OK, this one goes without saying! Jeans are essential for uni, brunch, shopping, and dressing up for nights out – you can’t have “jeans and a nice top” without the jeans! We recommend having at least one black and one blue pair – preferably skinny cut and high waisted. The key is to find a super flattering style like the A-Brand High Skinny Ankle Basher. Then, additions like boyfriend cut and rips are great for adding a grungy or trendy twist.

Jackets

Jackets
Shop jackets.

Outerwear can be as fashionable as it is warm, and the right pieces will last you years and years! Invest in some classics, like a leather jacket, a denim jacket, and a blazer. Any occasion, any weather, you’ll be able to add one of these options! We love the Maliha Jacket for layering over jeans and a t-shirt – the ultimate cool-girl outfit. Or try a denim jacket for a more casual look – plus, they’re perfect for your next festival outfit! If you have a more formal occasion, like a job interview or cocktail party, you can’t go wrong with the tailored Teenage Dream Blazer!

White Shirt

White-Tops
Shop tops.

Basic doesn’t have to mean boring – a classic white shirt can be so versatile! Try a linen button down like the Laura Jade Linen Shirt, a classic cut like a fitted long sleeve top, or even a fitted tank top to experiment with layering.

Knitwear

KNitwear
Shop knitwear.

A cosy knit is great for Winter, sure. But, a textured sweater is also great for pairing with miniskirts and shorts in the warmer months! A chunky turtleneck like the Lexia Knit in Beige is perfect for cosy-chic. Or, try a light layer like the Trudy Long Sleeve Knit, for pairing with jackets.

LBD

LBD
Shop black dresses.

No wardrobe is complete without a Little Black Dress, and the right LBD will carry you through any occasion! A bodycon fit like the Suzie Long Sleeve Dress is perfect for dressing up with heels and a blazer or dressing down with a denim jacket and sneakers. If it’s extra chilly, you could even pair with stockings and boots for maximum cosiness.

Accessories

Axc
Shop accessories.

Think of accessories as the glamorous icing on a delicious cake! Some essentials every gal needs are a chic pair of sunglasses, a carry-all bag, a waist-snatching belt, and some hoops! Mix and match, or wear all at once like the true fashionista you are.
