INVESTING IN THE BASICS

Never underestimate the importance of basics. If you get the essentials right, it’s much easier to build versatile, stylish outfits. As the cooler weather approaches, it’s time to invest in warm layers. Think long-sleeved crew neck tops and polo necks. Add some opaque tights and a few well-fitted pairs of jeans, and you’ve got the foundations pinned down.

REMIXING THOSE SUMMER FAVORITES

You don’t have to put your skirts and dresses away just because the sun has gone into hiding. With the right layers, you can remix your summer style. Team a patterned dress with a pair of thick tights, a biker jacket, and ankle boots for a cool autumnal look. Wear a plain polo neck underneath a denim pinafore dress, or throw a cardigan over the top.

GOING FOR VERSATILE STYLE

When you’re building a capsule wardrobe, it’s advisable to opt for versatile styles. Think about clothes that you wear over and over again. For example, jeans are a staple of most people’s wardrobes. Once you’ve got a pair you love, you can wear them with shirts, blouses, tees and blazers. You can dress them up or down for any occasion. The classic LBD is another worthwhile investment piece.

ACCESSORIZING

Accessories can change an outfit in an instant. If you have bags, shoes, and scarves, you can turn a simple ensemble into several different looks.

In the colder seasons, you may consider spending a little more on a fabulous coat or a killer pair of boots,. Browse fashion magazines and check out your favorite celebrities’ Instagram pages for inspiration.
