Fashion Friday: Glamed up Basics
For those days when you’re running late or feeling lazy during morning dressing, reach for a basic and build from there. From a seemingly casual updated sweatshirt to a classic white tee, this is the perfect canvas for standout jewelry, killer accessories or an embellished topper.
After a valentine’s day filled with too many sweets and too much bubbly, this morning was the perfect day to pair a sandblasted sweatshirt with a statement necklace, slouchy jeans and gold Gucci platforms. I know the notion of a sweatshirt and high heels sounds like an oxymoron, or may bring visions of an early morning streetwalker - but you’ve got it all wrong. We’re not talking hoddies and lucite - think fitted crewnecks and booties.
Here’s a few things to look for when updating your basics:
- Slim or slouchy silhouettes
- Unique treatments or detailed stitching
- Most importantly – a flattering fit
Once you nail the updated basics, pile on the scarves, jewels and unexpected extras. Just remember to remove one before you leave the house a la Coco Chanel.
Stay tuned and stay stylish.
