Purging. Taking Inventory. Shopping for the Basics. Did you miss class last week? Click here for Part I.
As stated last week the basics are so important and are extremely necessary to build a strong, quality base for a stylish wardrobe.
We’ll look at a few options today from three different pricing points.
Good. Better. Best.
Let me say, I have recently found the price difference in moving from good to better is normally less than moving from better to best. Make sense? I normally always go with the middle option. If the product is taken care of properly it is likely to last just as long as the best option and you managed to save a few dollars.
On to the basics….
Yes! Nothing warms my heart more than an oxford with a popped collar. There is just a sense of classic style there that is unmatched. Worn alone, under a pullover sweater, a cardigan, Left open and over a cami, the styling options are endless with an oxford.
Everybody is not interested in a stiletto,
and to be honest the older I got they don’t thrill me like they used to. Thank goodness for the new resurgence of fashionable flats. If you are a plain person, this may be where you choose to add your punch of color or print. Have fun.
No words in the English language to describe the love you have for THAT pair of jeans that fit just right. I have always found Forever 21 jeans to fit very well. Seeing that we are all different sizes and shapes I included New York and Company and PZI jeans because I’ve heard from the majority of the curvy girls in my life that these jeans offer the right amount of hug without the waist gap. I am curve less so I can’t vouch but it’s a starting place if you’ve had issues in the past with finding denim that fits properly.
This is just somewhere to start. A part of looking well put together is making sure your clothing fits properly so it may take some time to find that perfect fit, at the perfect price. Sometimes in order for our clothing to fit properly we may need a little help in the foundation department so don’t forget your good bra and Spanx!!
Next week we’ll look at sweaters and blazers. See you then.
Have you ever found that perfect fitting pair of jeans?
