On a busy day, we just want to quickly throw on an outfit and be ready to go. Basic black blouse/tee and blue jeans are often the trusty pieces we tend to grab. Today, I want to share with you some tips and tricks to make sure that even in the most basic and simple pieces, you still look fashionable and chic.
The best part? These looks can take us everywhere: from grocery store to airport, from a weekend get-together to a night out. And of course, all these basics can be easily mixed and matched with other bright or printed number in your closet.
Miranda Kerr used accessories to “do the trick”: A pair of red/navy striped espadrille made the worn-year-round black and denim blue combo instantly spring-ready; Glamorous cat-eye sunglasses and a structured leather bag polished up her look.
Kate Moss chose basics head-to-toe, but the details made her look stand out: from the half tucked-in top to the distressed details and roll-up hems of her jeans to her perfect tailored blazer.
Last two tips–keep the proportion right: slouchy boyfriend jeans need a well fitted cropped blazer while body-hugging bottoms call for easy breezy blouses or boxy jackets; Show some skin when you are in a tom-boy ensemble: roll up your jeans to show the slim ankles or choose a deep V-neck top to add a hint of sexiness.
