Back To Basics

There comes a time in everyone’s life where we fall totally flat in deciding what outfit to wear for a random night out. Should we choose the newly purchased outfit, or should we save that for a better outing? This type of situation can become extremely frustrating and annoying, especially when you are in a rush.

The clock is ticking and your ride will be here in approximately an hour. Thankfully, your makeup is perfected and your hair is freshly curled. The last thing on your agenda is to finalize that outfit, pack your purse, and enjoy the night out. Now, lets take it back for a moment and decide on the perfect last minute outfit.

Whenever your in a fashion rut, forget the crazy pairings and go back to basics. Basics are the best articles of clothing for any situation, and I mean ANY situation. You may be asking yourself, what exactly are basics? Basics can include any every day apparel that can be either dressed up or dressed down. These can include plain tees, leggings, solid shirts, comfortable jeans, or really anything that represents simplicity.

If you think of it, your rainy cold day can translate into wearing leggings and a t-shirt. Now, lets take those same leggings and tee and accessorize it up. These two basics can be entirely transformed into making your last minute night outfit one to rock in your next social media post.

Accessorizing is key when it comes to basic outfits. Pair along your leggings and plain t-shirt with any bold statement piece. A statement piece can be either a chunky necklace, a long necklace, or even a scarf; any neck piece could work. Next, add along cute shoes, a purse and there you go- you finally have your perfect last minute outfit! How easy was that?

The word basic has seem to gotten a bad rep throughout the years. When we think of basic, we immediately think of Starbucks coffee, puffball keychains, and Instagram memes. What we don’t come to realize is that basics are the best form of apparel one can own. Throw any outfit together with a plain t-shirt paired along with accessories and your outfit is sure to be ‘anything-but-basic’.
