Sorry guys, but this one, is also for the girls! Something as common as clothes that we use to dress ourselves every day is way more complicated than throwing on whatever we grab out of the closet. For girls, we take it much more seriously than that.
I have a horrible addiction to shopping. Online shopping is my weakness; I find way too many deals on tops and accessories that can spice up my wardrobe! I'm always looking for the newest style to wear and share or to swipe left.
From tops and bottoms, to accessories and shoes, we take pride in our closet. What we wear is who we are and we do not want to be a mistake. So if you think your closet is lacking or needs a new piece, here is what you can absolutely not live without!
The flirty, flowy dress
A must have. You can't wear bottoms with leg holes all the time. A flowy dress can be worn for work (if appropriate), a day in the park with the family, or a night on the town with your girls. Very universal.
Black and/or white jeans
I love my black jeans and have never been opposed to white. Jeans are most commonly blue and it's time to spice it up. Colored jeans can work, but they are a little harder to match. Black and white will go with anything!
Scarves are a great accessory and you can't have just one. You need some for winter, some for summer, and some for always. As plain scarves match a lot, patterned scarf gives your outfit the pop it needed.
Big, flashy earrings
Pierced ears and earrings are in. The more the better. Make sure you have a nice pair of hoops or an elegant, dangly pair to show off your fun side.
A pair of booties
Boots are cute, booties are cuter. Add a pair of booties to your closet and maybe make them heels. They are the only heels I own and I'm in love.
A fun kimono
Nice and cool for the summer, wearable in the spring and fall. A flowery kimono is the perfect coverup.
High waisted shorts/pants
They've come back and they've been here to say for a while now. Pairing high waisted bottoms with a crop top slims your figure more than you'd think.
A comfortable flannel
Everyone owns a flannel. Do you? Flannels are perfect for fall and winter, and you don't look like a country singer in them anymore. Score!
Ok, so this is not necessarily to wear out in public, but no one's stopping you. Big sweats have always been a girls best friend. You don't even have to buy them, steal your boyfriends ;)
A giant sweater/cardigan
In style. Big sweaters are super comfortable and warm so its a win/win. Cardigans should also be a part of your closet for work and fun.
Knee high socks
Guys love them. They keep you warm and give you a sexy look. Pair with a skirt.
As you need several pairs of black, you also need one, unordinary pair. Whether it be flowered, aztec, or galaxy, there's a shirt out there that will match them. Hint: some stores pair those with a matching shirt near by.
You can thank me later.
Let's just say, basic bitches love fall, me included. I've always loved the summer sun, but I also couldn't wait for fall to come around and would prefer it to stay.
I get on anything social media and its constant girls exclaiming "fall fall fall" and I don't discriminate, that's also me. While everyone else watches from afar and frowns upon our excited little souls.
Some people ask, why fall? What's so special about those months where the weather can be unpredictable and winter is coming soon?
In case you still aren't sure, I'll fill you in.
What basic girl doesn't wanna take an Instagram of the beautiful changing leaves? They're pretty sweet. Prepare yourselves, the pictures are coming. #nofilter
It's not too hot.
Well, eventually. Summer can bring some unbearable weather to want to be outside in. For most of fall, the weather is comfortable or you can just throw on a cute jacket. Which brings me too..
Fall fashion may be my favorite. Sooo many possibilities. You have the scarves, beanies, flannels and boots! Legging weather is back so every girl is beyond happy. I'm more than ready to wear leggings whenever possible.
I'm not huge on the pumpkin fad, but bitches love them some pumpkin spice lattes. There's also pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pie, pumpkin this and that. Drink it up while you can.
I do love apples though. When the apple cider is here, I'm a happy girl. Bring on the apple cider festival.
Festivals of the fall.
I don't often buy much but going to them are a win for me. Gotta hit up at least one a year, or maybe them all? Apples, potatoes, crafts and pumpkins. What is it about these things that are so fun?
It's the spookiest time of year and who doesn't wanna be scared? Haunted houses, excuses to indulge in chocolate, dressing up, decorating, corn mazes, and carving pumpkins; if you're not amused, leave.
Hot cocoa, tea, and coffee.
Warming up with a cup of these, maybe by a fire?; soooooo relaxing. Make a mug and cuddle up.
It's not hot. Cuddle your hearts out.
As a fan, go football! It's at least an exciting sport if you're not into it. Try and enjoy it. For the fans, lets go football season!
I think I've hit the majors of why fall is bomb. Let's celebrate bitches, it's almost here!
Do any of your clothes include rayon, or made of 100% rayon? You probably know because it's the damn comfiest clothing you own.
I've started buying more clothing recently that is either all rayon or 95% rayon and some spandex. Best decisions of my life. Not only are these clothes comfortable, but they are also sometimes dressy.
I own maxi skirts and dresses that are made of rayon and I love them. Not only can I wear these day to day, but I can wear them to work and be comfortable at work. Having to dress up for work, I've found that I'd rather be comfortable all day.
With these clothing items, I can be professional and comfortable at the same time. Oh and did I mention stylish? Palazzo pants often are made of this too.
Are you online ordering yet? There are skirts you can purchase for $15-$20 made of rayon. I found a dress at old navy for $15 and I love it.
These items are often colorful too. As you can find them in solids, you can find them in various patterns to mix it up.
This is in style. This is comfortable. This is practical. This is the shit.
If you weren't clued in, you heard it from me!
