Basic Clothing Staples for Every Wardrobe

by

Changing your style can be a fun way to experiment with fashion and signal a growth in your personal life. But, if you’re anything like I am, you’ll want to change your personal style every few months. That and keeping up with the newest trends can do a number to your bank account. Owning these basic clothing staples will allow you to change your style as you desire without needing to buy a completely new wardrobe. These items will never go out of style and will keep you up to date with the ever-changing fashion trends! 

Quality Denim

Jeans are the single most versatile article of clothing. So, I suggest investing in a high-quality pair of jeans. Durable jeans can last years if not a lifetime. There’s a good reason Levi’s have been around for over 167 years. Levi’s are trusted to be comfortable and fit your desired look. They are constantly making new styles, but my favorites are always the vintage finds. 

Leather Pants

No surprise here! Per our previous article, leather never goes out of style!  If handled with care and delicacy, leather pants can also last a lifetime. The hefty price tag may be a deterrent, but vegan leather is becoming more widely produced. Still, nothing beats scoring the perfect leather pants from a second-hand store.  

White and Black Tank Tops

Tank tops are basic, but basics are important for an ever-changing wardrobe! The tops linked below are made with stretchy and chic fabric that can be worn professionally with a cardigan or worn casually on their own.

Little Black Dress

A classic staple with a long and infamous history. Originally designed by fashion icon Coco Chanel, the LBD can do it all – professional, casual, and chic.

Black Boots

If I were a minimalist, I would say black boots are the only pair of shoes needed in a wardrobe. Boots have the extra benefit that they can be worn all year round. If you pick up the right pair, they can be durable, comfortable, and versatile. Whether you prefer a higher heel, chunky platform, or flats, black boots are quite possibly the only shoe you need! 

Hoop Earrings

Gold or silver, hoop earrings can complete any look making you look and feel put together.

Need to Refresh Your Style? Try a Clothing Swap Party

by

We all must admit, we either have too little in our closets or too much. Sometimes, you just need to rethink what pieces are essential, and which are never, ever going to be worn. If you’re in a quandary, listen up. Changing up your wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to empty your wallet. If you’re a procrastinator, fret not. Many of us put off going shopping, put off organizing our closets, and sometimes we have an entire section that sits unworn for months. If you’re starting to feel the need to organize, prioritize, and get ready for the fall, then you should consider an option that you may not have considered before: a clothing swap party!

Clothing Swap Events: Why Don’t You Participate?

It sounds ridiculously simple, and it should be, but many people don’t take advantage of the fact that they have friends who are similar sizes or have similar styles. Maybe it’s just something you’ve never thought about. But the next time you plan a girl’s night, why not plan a clothing swap party? Each attendee can bring a set number of items (or unlimited if you like), snacks, beverages, movies or board games—you name it, there aren’t any rules.

A Girl’s Night That’s Productive, as Well as a Fun Time

It’s easy to make a clothing swap fun. Whether you choose to keep it low key with movies, snacks, and drinks, or a bit rowdier. Some swap parties are done in a white elephant style, or some other gift swap game that makes the experience more like a party, and less like a normal night.

With Fall on the Way, a Clothing Swap Could Save the Day

If you’re feeling tired of your few fall essentials left over from last year, it’s a great idea to have a fall themed clothing swap. Maybe you don’t have the money to update your wardrobe like you’d like to, and that’s okay! A clothing swap is better than thrifting in some ways because it’s a social event with friends. If you’re super busy like a lot of us are, a clothing swap party is an amazing way to sneak in some much-needed friend time, without feeling like you need to be doing something more productive.
