How To Take Your Basics from Cool to Casual to Classy!

What’s a wardrobe without basics? Everyone from celebs to fashion bloggers seems to have incorporated more basics in their wardrobe.  What I love about owning basic items is the fact that you can create more than one style just by switching up a few key pieces. Below you’ll see how I went from a Cool Chic Vibe to Casual then Classy all while keeping my basics the same.

The Classy Closet Sunnies gives this style a cool vibe paired with a Kardashian by Bebe leopard clutch and a pair of fridge caramel open toe booties from Just Fab.

This is a great outfit to wear to a creative meeting.

A fresh pair of white chucks and a pop of color fedora is the perfect accessory to add to this casual style.

This is a great run to the mall outfit.

A pair of pumps can instantly take a crop top and a pair of jeans from casual to classy. It’s the ultimate classic shoe that’d never go out of style.

You can wear this outfit on a lunch date or pair it with a fedora (below) for more of a date night look.


H&M, Zara & Top Shop are a few places where you can find lots of quality basic items. You can also find some at Forever 21 but, I personally love to purchase from the above three stores because for a few extra dollars I notice the quality is better and my basics tend to last longer even after a few washes.
