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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
