Let’s face it, we all have clothes in our closets that we don’t wear and wouldn’t like to donate or throw away. Since fashion is continually changing, we feel that we must update our wardrobe regularly to keep up with the latest trends. Some necessities, on the other hand, will never go out of style.
If you want to update your wardrobe or minimize your fashion budget, you need to think creatively about how to mix and match the old with the new, and how to style them. For example, you can wear the same trench coat but make your outfit unique and new by styling it with other garments and accessories.
Don’t worry, in this article, we’ll discuss some budget-friendly wardrobe basics that will keep you looking stunning and chic. Here are a few of our favorites.
A Good Basic T-shirt
The first item you should have in your closet are some decent quality basic t-shirts, as you can wear them in a variety of ways. If you’re looking for low-cost t-shirts, Amazon Essentials is a terrific place to start. The T-shirts are roughly $8 each and come in a pair. So if you spill some sauce, you can simply get new ones because they are so affordable.
T-shirts, in their most basic form, can be worn with almost anything. If you want to go for the ‘Born to be sassy’ look, all you need is a basic black tee, a red leather jacket, a pair of jeans, and some boots. A basic tee and jeans, along with some shoes, are enough for a casual style. If you want to go for a more formal look, wear it with a skirt or a dress. When you have a basic tee, you can experiment with nearly anything.
Sweaters can be pretty costly. Hence, having 1-3 sweaters in your closet is more than enough. Amazon is another wonderful location to look at because its prices are fairly reasonable. To begin, invest in a classic cable knit oversized sweater in a creamy neutral color. Along with that, purchase a bulky turtle oversized cable knit sweater.
When it comes to turtle necks, everyone should have at least one black form-fitted turtleneck t-shirt in their closet. You can do so many things with it. Speaking of sweaters, a sweater dress is also a stylish option. You can wear anything at the bottom with sweaters, such as flared jeans or checkered skirts, and they’ll all look Instagram-worthy.
Let’s Talk About Jeans
You should have three distinct types of jeans in three different color washes. The first is a pair of Levi Wedgie jeans in sky blue. It’s a timeless piece that pairs well with sweaters, T-shirts, silk shirts, and various other items. You can even accessorize it with chains and belts.
Levi’s rib cage jeans in a dark greyish blue hue are also a good option. This looks excellent with a light-colored shirt and is also very comfy to wear. They’re very attractive and help define your waist. If you want to tuck your clothing in, these jeans are a must-have.
Last but not least, the classic skinny jeans. You can choose any wash you want, but the grayish-black wash is a decent choice. You can dress them up or down to get the most wear out of this color. They also look amazing with any style of shoes.
Some Must-Have Shoes
Shoes are crucial since they set the tone for the rest of your outfit. If you put on a good outfit but wear the wrong shoes, everything will seem mismatched, and all your efforts will be for naught. A classic pair of white sneakers is the first must-have shoe.
White sneakers may be worn with jeans, dresses, and skirts, and because the color itself is a blank canvas, you can match it with whatever color palette you choose. Formal black boots that aren’t too tall are another pair of shoes you should have. The heel should be large enough to walk a mile and still be suitable for elevation.
Additionally, formal black shoes, formal brown shoes with a small heel, and black and nude heels are excellent selections. These shoes can be worn with a wide range of clothing in various colors without the need for additional footwear. It is both fashionable and cost-effective to have these shoes in your closet.
Blazers are the kind of necessity that, like icing on a cake, ties an outfit together. Blazers in light beige and black are essential. They come in a variety of styles, including bold and pastel colors, and will make you look like a model regardless of what you pair it with.
Wearing a blazer with a pair of jeans and a tucked-in turtleneck t-shirt is a terrific way to style it (preferably in black). Blazers are an excellent way to add layers to your clothing and achieve that Mediterranean look. These two hues can be worn in a variety of ways and are the most popular. If you have these fundamental hues, you won’t need to buy any more blazers.
Brown and Black Handbags
To complete your look, you will need some handbags, and having a brown and black handbag in your closet will solve most of your color pallet problems. You can style these bags with any color such as red, black, blue, green, purple, orange, and any other color you pick.
Time to Organize Your Closet
With the absolute essentials that we mentioned above, you can adapt any style you want with a budget. Just remember to always experiment and incorporate your color and style into it.
No matter what you wear, each person is unique in their way, so don’t forget to have fun with your outfits every day. Be bold, be beautiful. Be you!
