I love my basics – from oversized tees and dolman tops to the perfect wash denim – but every wardrobe needs those pieces that can help you transform those basics into outfits that are really anything but basic. Here are three of my must-have pieces that will transform your wardrobe:
1. A blazer that says “no nonsense” : There’s something about a blazer that instantly adds that polished chic element. Throw it on over a simple tee and jeans and it will totally revamp your look. I know this blazer is a little spendy but as I’ve gotten older I’ve started investing in some classic pieces that I know won’t go out of style and this is one of them. Here is a budget friendly version under $150 and this one is under $50.
2. A pair of heels that make you feel like you can do anything. Every girl needs a pair of classic black pumps and this suede pair is amazing – it’s such a flattering cut and I love the gold metal heel detailing. (Also own this same style in pink).
3. That designer bag you’ve been eyeing. I’ve said it before, but adding quality details like a classic designer bag can instantly make your look read more high-end. It’s a rule I live by when mixing high-end and budget friendly pieces in one outfit and, even if you start small, splurging on something outside your normal comfort zone will upgrade your entire wardrobe. Love this option as a budget-friendly alternative to this Chanel crossbody.
