Hey there! Just a quick reminder to nominate someone you love for our "Give Big" shopping spree! Deadline is Wednesday. Details here.
Isn’t it great when you buy a true wardrobe staple—that one piece you can wear again and again for years to come? Buying a few high-quality, classic items can stretch your wardrobe and make it more feasible to spend a little each season on the latest trends. Here are a few must-haves when stocking up on foundation pieces:
Good pair of jeans. Skinny jeans are still a good option and should be around for awhile. If you want a pair with staying power, steer clear of anything with an unusual wash or extreme distressing or detail.
A black dress is a must because you can dress it up or down by changing out accessories and shoes.
A white tee that will go under anything. Cotton is a good option because you can bleach it when it starts looking dingy.
A versatile and neutral duster or long sweater that can be layered over almost anything.
A striped shirt. Choose colors you love to wear so you can pair it with jeans, skirts, and sweaters.
A leather or leather-look bootie can be worn three seasons of the year. Choose one with a heel in a comfortable height so you can wear it everywhere.
A cute flat. The popular pointed-toe shoes with an ankle strap are feminine and feel classic. Ballet flats are another safe go-to option.
A basic sweatshirt—our favorite one this season is figure flattering but still feels casual and cozy.
A trench coat will always be in style. Choose the fabric best for where you live; they look good in everything from canvas to wool. *
