Putting together a functional yet stylish wardrobe comes easy to some but others may find challenging. Most people just go out and shop but if you don’t really know what to buy, you end up amassing a pile of stuff you don’t really like or no how to wear, then it gets frustrating.
So for my first post i thought I’d share with you, some of my favourite wardrobe staples. My personal style is comfortable, very sexy and fun. I hope you find some inspiration. Enjoy!
The white blouse
The white blouse is a very basic piece. it can be dressed up with a pencil skirt for work or worn with skinny jeans on a fun date. whether they come in simple cotton, silk, sheer or lace. you cannot go wrong with one of these.
I find these print versions absolutely fabulous. The thing about chain strapped purses, no matter which you choose, they add a certain subtle sexiness to your ensemble.
High waisted skirts, apart from accentuating the waist will hide a multitude of sins. Say for instance you decided that doing your regular sit-ups have become like rocket science. Michelle Obama incorporates skirts like this a lot in her outfits. My favourite way of wearing them is with a beautiful silk round-necked blouse. Very sexy!
A simple single buttoned blazer like this can take you from a day in the office to a night on the town. Here’s what you need to do for night. Simply unbutton, hike up the sleeves a few cm from your wrists, pair with a bodycon dress, black pumps, a chain strapped purse, and you are good to go. Try other solid colours and prints as well.
One of my male friends once swore that he found a loaf of bread in his girlfriend’s bag. Also one of my male colleagues is always trying to see the inside of my bag. Oh well ladies carry stuff around. An entire outfit sometimes and what better way to carry than in a very large bag. lol
Shorts are perfect for a relaxing weekend on the town. Or if like me, you spend your weekends running errands or driving in the heat of Lagos, then have this handy. You can pair with flip flops or ballet flats. The trick is to choose one that suits your frame. If you are not going to meet P-square on set, please choose a loose fitted pair just like this.
These are so essential, if you were to write the elements of the fashionic table,They would come first.They can be paired with almost all outfits and they will take a rice sack from drab to fab. OK maybe if you add a belt.
For me i think you don’t need too own so many pairs of jeans. Just a few that fit perfectly. Picking out the perfect pair is always so tedious you have to try on about 20 to find just 1 pair. I have had just 5 pairs for about 2yrs now and i think i wear only 3 of them. skinny jeans especially are not really comfortable in the heat.
