Finding Solace in the basics..

Oct 28, 2014 | Fashion

Sometimes, we find solace in the most basic items in our wardrobes.. and they sort of envelope us in their awesome “basicness”.. and a fantastic fashion moment is borne..

How do we identify a basic moment? It is not really a ‘I can’t be bothered to dress up moment”.. it is more along the lines of.. “I am so happy… I feel so body confident..and right now all I need is the most minimal styling to let my essence shine…….Well..minimal is awesome!..OR CAN BE AWESOME..

The points below would help…

1.Whip out a well cut pair of jeans or pants…Figure flattering and comfortable..
2.Your favourite top? Easy to wear and nonrestrictive..
3.A well cut black dress or  even red…any colour of your choice..A solid colour block..makes for a great simplistic look..
4.Dainty or barely there accessories..
5.A nicely cut  blazer
6.Comfortable shoes..could be heeled or flat shoes..
7.Make-up.. whatever look makes you feel quintessentially you..

You probably would get compliments like “You look very nice”.. as opposed to..”Your top is nice”..“Bask in the awesomeness of your womanhood”..

Yes I had a basic moment.. It was so basic….but I felt super bolshy in it.. I wore a really old pair of jeans, my favourite body suit from Topshop, comfortable shoes as well as my trustee black blazer…A simpler look I don’t remember..
