The older I get, the more I gravitate toward classic pieces for my own wardrobe. What makes a classic wardrobe, you may ask? When I think of a classic wardrobe, the first thing that comes to mind is Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Her style was so classic and will never go out of style.
To me, a classic is something that is always in style season after season, year after year. It stands the test of time and is something you don’t get tired of. When it comes to my wardrobe, I always find I go back to my classics when I feel like I have “nothing to wear”. Let’s be real y’all, this is something that happens a lot. After buying a lot of trendy items, I’m realizing now that I need to invest in high quality basics. When creating a work wardrobe, this is something I especially do.
3 Basics For Creating A Classic Look:
- Blazer: One of my favorite classic wardrobe pieces is a blazer. I picked The Perfect Ponte Blazer from Talbots because it’s tailored, effortless, and flattering. It comes in several colors, but I was in need of a gray one. My favorite part is that, if you roll up the sleeves, there is a fun pattern.
- Pumps: I was in need of some good pumps that are classic but fun. I have been wearing these on repeat because they’re actually really comfortable and classy.
- Skinny Ankle Jeans: I have a lot of trouble finding good skinny jeans. I love these because they’re comfortable and well-made.
Whether you’re going to work, church or just trying to dress a look up, blazers can instantly change an outfit up. Wearing these 3 basics helps create an easy, effortless, and classic look. I’ve worn this outfit twice recently; once with a red bag to add a pop of color, and then with a neutral large bag to fit all of my daily essentials.
Which is your favorite way I wore it?
