Go From Simple to Stylish by Upgrading Your Basics
Closet essentials every winter wardrobe should have
Winter 2022 is just around the corner, and if you’re worried about having to splurge just to look stylish for the season, you can stop right now.
There are plenty of ways to elevate your style for the cool weather without breaking the bank. Upgrade your everyday casuals with simple style hacks that make you instantly fashionable without compromising on comfort and cost.
Bring Out the Basics
Build on these fundamental pieces to create a fresh new look this season.
Basic doesn’t mean boring! These are classic wardrobe essentials that’ll last you across all seasons. The secret is to choose the right basics for you.
A Nice Crisp Tee
No closet is complete without a neutral coloured tee! It anchors statement pieces like printed pants, and layers perfectly under a colourful Festival shrug.
Form Flattering Pants
Perfect for dressing up, down, day-to-night. Invest in a great pair, and it will stay in your closet for years. Whether they’re figure-hugging and breathable like these Larsa Slim Fit Jeans by Betty Basics, or warm and comfy like these black knit pants, a pair that fits perfectly is another foundation piece that never goes out of style.
A Go-To LBD
Of course, every woman’s closet should have the ever-versatile little black dress. Choose a figure-flattering length and cut to give you the perfect silhouette. This fun, flirty and feminine Freez Cheetah Dress is an easy pick that can take you from work to a fabulous night out.
Keeping it simple with staples is the perfect strategy for a minimalist, yet fashionably fresh wardrobe. The tricky part is keeping your look from being bland. Neutrals have a tendency to look plain when not paired with other pieces that could enhance the outfit.
Three easy tricks to add fun and flair to your favourite basics:
Play with patterns for a pop of personality. Animal prints inject a perfect dose of excitement into the ordinary. Here’s a favorite statement piece that adds spunk when you’re feeling adventurous.
Layer with Colour
Layering is a must, especially in cold weather. Maximise this idea to elevate your entire look. Spice up your basics with some bright hues, like this one that we love - and we know you will, too.
Accent with Accessories
Don’t underestimate the power of great accessorising! Elevate the style of even the most basic pieces with a chic belt, printed scarf, or by adding a sling bag in a bright colour like Cobalt.
These simple style tricks are tried and true ways to add an unexpected element to your OOTD. Before you know it, your boring basics will turn into your fashion favourites!
