Less is More: Part 3
Basics are the canvas on which style is created
The pencil skirt, the black work pants, the white button-up blouse, the blazer, the leather jacket, the pea coat, the trench coat, the sheath dress, the cardigan, the dark-blue boot-cut jeans, the little black dress: items you can wear over and over again in many different ways. Do you need all of these? No, only choose basics that fit your lifestyle and your body-type. Your wardrobe basics are exactly what you decide they should be; if you are a dress person, buy dresses that you can dress up or down. If you prefer pants, maybe it's time to fill a gap in your style with a pair of elegant dress pants. Your basics do not need to be expensive, but make sure they are well-made and fit you perfectly because this is how you will save money over time.
I created this picture in one of my art classes to demonstrate how basics can save you money because they can be dressed up or down for many occasions. I had a lot of fun designing the outfits, and I hope you enjoy~
