Jacket: Shein / Top: Brandy Melville / Pants: Topshop / Loafers: Second-hand
Investing in simple black and white pieces will do wonders for your wardrobe. For one, it makes it easy and quick to put an outfit on in the morning because everything pairs well together. My shopping habits now have myself asking a few questions: Can I pair this with other things in my wardrobe? How is the quality? Does this fit me? Will I still wear this in a couple of months? A year?
I used to buy clothing because I liked it and when I got home I realized that it went with nothing in my closet. If you are trying to downsize or adapt a minimalist lifestyle you must think of a couple of outfits you can style it with before committing. Since I've embraced this habit my closet is becoming a curated collection of pieces I love and see myself wearing for many years to come. And most of those pieces are black and white.
This outfit is so simple but all the details makes it a put-together outfit. I've had this jacket for a couple of years now and it's perfect for any occasion. I wear it to work, running errands, or when I'm going out with friends. It literally goes with anything and everything.
Underneath I have my favorite black Topshop Joni jeans and a super soft Brandy Melville t-shirt. These items were a little pricier than some may hope to spend, but I got them on sale and love them to bits! On my feet I'm wearing these black loafers my grandmother gave me. I plan to invest in a new pair soon, as I'm constantly wearing these to work or when I need to step out quick. They are so easy to wear.
What do you think of this outfit? Do you like to invest in basics? What are your wardrobe staples that you gravitate the most towards when you get dressed in the morning?
