How To Create A Classic Wardrobe
If you’re tired of thinking you don’t have anything to wear at all and endless amounts you spend on new clothing each season, this post is the one for you.
I am going to unveil the curtain of shopping-mis(t)ery and give away the secret of how I went from spending a fortune on clothes I ultimately did not wear, to never having the feeling of “what the hell am I gonna wear today” so you can have it, too. Let’s get started!
1.Buy Neutral Clothing
Not only can you wear neutral colors in years to come but every season, too. Plus, you can mix them up as you like it since neutrals always go together well.
2.Buy classical blazers with a modern twist
Blazers are super versatile. You can style them street-style worthy with midi skirts for instance or wear them to interviews (with suit-pants of course). A modern blazer with a twist can be a black one with embellishment on the revers for example.
3.Invest in pieces that have history
By pieces I mean bags. Bags with history which I assume never go out of style are the Lady Bag by Dior, Chanel Flap Bag, Hermès Kelly and Birkin, and Fendi Peekaboo. By the way: Chanel bags had a higher return on investment than gold over the last decades, so your money is probably stored away safely.
4.Do not shop spontaneously
Never buy clothes the same day you spot them in the stores and you will find yourself realizing that you do not really need another blue shirt/pants/bag.
5.Black Chelsea Boots
Have a pair of standard black Chelsea Boots featuring a small Cuban heel because they literally go with everything.
6.Blouses are everything
Shirts with button-ups are comfortable, chic and can be varied on a daily even hourly basis. Whether you casually wear it to work or tie it around your hips for a layered look, it sure is incredible how many ways there are to wear shirts.
