Im not very much of a basics person, my wardrobe contains primarily loud eye catching pieces and even my basics have some sort of twist ( black velvet pants anyone? I live in mine these days - So comfy but still looks pulled together), but here is a list of what I think are must have basics:
1. basic trench coat
Because it goes with anything and adds instant polish to any outfit. I have one with leather sleeves that I use a lot during the summer.
2. black trousers
I usually never wear trousers. Im more of a skirts and dresses kind of girl. But I live in Iceland and therefore I have to be realistic. My favourite pair ( which I consider to be a basic in my wardrobe) are these wonderful velvet pants.
3. Nude pumps
This is the exact pair that I have. They are so ladylike and I love to pair them with navy blue items in my wardrobe ( of that, I have plenty)
4. Red lipstick
One swipe of fiery red lipstick can fix anything. My ultimate life saver!
I love blazer jackets. They work with anything and make any outfit more sophisticated.
5. ballet flats
I am a heels girl at heart, but in some circumstances a pretty flat shoe is essential ( travelling etc.)
6.pretty ( and matching) underwear
In my opinion, pretty underwear is an essential basic and important to any outfit. Even though nobody will see it, it adds confidence.
7. a kickass pair of sunglasses
Instantly makes you cooler and paired with red lipstick, it´s all I need to feel good about myself!
8. a nice perfume
I think the perfume you wear is just as personal as your handwriting. I wear perfume everyday, and even different according to what mood I´m in.
Have a great day
