As we said in the first part of this article, we are trying to give you a shopping guide which will help you build a very versatile and functional wardrobe when you are on a budget. These basic items can take you from day to night, from work to a club and even from winter to summer.
Favorite pair of jeans
Every girl has that perfect pair of jeans that suits her in a lovely way and accentuates every advantage of her figure. Search for the favorite pair of jeans until you find it: whether it is a skinny, boyfriend or straight pair, it will be your safety bottom wear item when you are in a hurry, but still want to look gorgeous. However, I would recommend looking for a basic blue color (light or dark, depending on your preferences), since classics are easier to pair up with all kinds of topwear and do not limit your choice for the rest of the outfit.
Blazer in a bright color
This is not the most typical basic item, but it has one huge advantage: it makes an outfit a lot more interesting.
The casual, yet fashionable flat shoe
I don’t know about you, but my priority in the choice of shoes has always been comfort. Not being a fan of high heels, I have done my best to find a way to pick out interesting, yet classic flat shoes that go with everything. Sneakers, loafers, ballerina flats…. Just remember: when it comes to basic pairs of shoes that you will need and wear a lot, pick good quality shoes and don’t go for cheap ones, since you will have to buy new pairs every season.
The perfect bag
Some say a woman’s bag can fit her entire world. The perfect bag, more specifically a big one, is not necessarily an expensive one or by a high-end designer. On the contrary, it can be by an unknown label, but once again, it is better for it to be good quality if you want to get a good use of it for a long time: whether it’s in your work or free time. It can be in a basic black or brown color, or if you are more extravagant in your fashion choices, it can be a coral, blue or red version. Nevertheless, it needs to be stylish, to go with many types of outfits, to be as light as possible and to be able to fit all the junk we, women, carry around with us.
