If you have a collection full of loud prints, bright colours, or unique silhouettes, you may feel like it’s difficult to wear them again and again without looking like you only have a couple of outfits. That’s why you need a good amount of basics.
Basic pieces in solid and muted colours like black, grey, white, navy, or tan are essentials in every wardrobe and are the building blocks for versatile clothes. Basics can be paired with each other or with busy prints and fabrics to pull a look together, easily and effortlessly.
Co-ords, or coordinating sets, are such a great way to immediately own several outfits in one buy. Wearing them together offers a seamless and elegant look that you barely have to put any effort into, and you can separate the pieces and pair them with different items you already own to create an almost endless amount of different looks.
Different washes of denim can be really helpful when dressing for different events. Lighter hues are often best for casual social settings, while darker hues are appropriate for work and even nighttime events that require a little dressing up.
Having a few good quality and flattering denim pieces can go a long way for a long time, and having them in different washes can really help the versatility and uniqueness of every outfit you wear.
Layering is such a fantastic way to pair all sorts of pieces that you own and see how they look together. From jackets and blazers to cardigans and shackets, these can vary your outfit selection even further and add an extra element to every look.
They can help make your outfit go from looking like something you just threw together, to a thoughtfully planned-out outfit, and they work especially well if you’re mixing and matching different colours and prints by blending them all together.
Accessorising is definitely the underdog of turning every outfit from something plain to something eye-catching and unique. Even if you’re wearing an outfit that’s made up of basics and that you usually wear for more casual settings, you can easily turn these looks into more dressy outfits suitable for a wider range of occasions simply by picking the right jewellery, shoes, bags, and the like.
Finding different ways to wear your current wardrobe can feel difficult, but it’s all about being a bit more creative with what you already own. Having a range of pieces that can be mixed and matched and are versatile from the get-go can make creating different looks and rotating your wardrobe so much easier. Make the most of what you have with these easy tips and never deal with the worry of running out of clothing ever again.
