Back to the base

Hey, guys!

Thank you for the continuous lovely feedback on my posts and hello to the new followers, I really appreciate that and I'm glad you feel like subscribing, that means a lot to me.

Today I wanted to give you a little more of an insight into my personal style and show you how I would style basically 8 outfits in total for totally different occasions using 4 simple basis. All of these I'd gladly own and wear, because with basis like this you have an endless spectrum of different combination varieties, but today instead of recreating the idea with my own wardrobe peaces, I'll be using sets I've made on Polyvore, which I will also link to, in case you'd like to check out any of the product details specifically, because I won't be focusing on it here.

Let's see, what we have!

Outfits #1 and #2 Autumn layering
In these outfits, I wanted to work with one of my favorite basis - a simple blue jean, a button up and a cozy, chunky, yet still pretty fitted knit jumper. I added the plaid scarf, because I think that's a great Autumn/Fall peace to have and in the first case, to the left, I paired it with a classic leather jacket, a brown satchel bag and some laced up gorgeous boots. This to me is the perfect, casual, laid back, yet a bit edgy and cool outfit, which I'd wear any day, where I want to be comfortable and still look good. The other option plays up the button up shirt a bit more and shows a slightly dressier way of wearing the same base. Pairing it with a classy trench coat, a simple black bag and some tanned booties, we get an outfit that's a little bit more "work appropriate" in case you don't work anywhere particularly formal, but still want to look put together. In both cases I kept the accessories to a minimum, creating very simple, effortless looks, but the possibilities are endless.

Outfits #3 and #4 The LBD

Having a classic silhouette, good quality, well fitting black dress in your wardrobe will last you years and provide a "safe heaven" for any "I don't have what to wear" occasion. It's an amazing base and a great canvas for multiple different looks. Today, I created a more casual, work appropriate look with a chunky cardigan (which is actually extremely cheap, if you like it - I'm considering getting it, because I love it) , simple and classy boots and the bag and silver accessories. Don't ask me why, but to me personally (on myself as well) silver jewelry looks more casual and everyday, while gold - more put together and dressed up. Maybe because most of my everyday peaces are silver, I'm not sure. But I think the look is perfect for an everyday wear, feeling comfortable and looking amazing at the same time. The second outfit on the right dresses the base up with some black heeled booties, gold accessories, a nice clutch bag and a light colored fitting blazer. I would literally be able to come home from work in the outfit on the left, change it up to the other one, refreshen my makeup and go straight out for dinner.

Outfits #5 and #6 Sailor stripes

These next outfits work with a classic striped top and some gorgeous navy fabric pants, which I love, because they are so easy to dress up and down, depending on the pairing. On the outfit on the left I created a very casual, comfy and almost a bit lazy outfit using converses, a nice monochrome bag, that ties in with the striped top, a light colored, chunky knit cardigan and some silver accessories. The watch is slightly more manly (which I love), but the stocked up bracelets are very cute on the contrary, especially the tiny pop of color with the evil eye bracelet. The outfit on the left is again something I'd take out for any social arrangement, dinners, parties etc., I love the gold accessories and how throwing on a nice blazer makes anything look polished. The clutch is amazing, I think and the classic black heels glams up the outfit that tiny bit more. It's still an easy look, it just looks more dressy.

Outfits #7 and #8 The white T

These last two outfits are both on the casual side. Having a simple, nice fitting white T is always a must, because it always looks amazing and I paired it with something that's on top of my wish list - some biker pants in a lovely olive green color.  Pairing that with very casual peaces like a plaid shirt, toms, leather arm bands, a brown leather backpack, a nice brown belt and a beanie (which I've never owned, but I love how it looks on people), creates the perfect lazy day outfit for running errands, studying downtown, meeting up with friends for a lazy chat and a cup of coffee etc., while the outfit on the right is still casual and a bit lazy, but I would definitely go out in it with some nice makeup and hair, throwing on a pair of chunky heeled booties, black accessories and an edgy jacket. I'd meed my friends for a drink in this for sure.


Okay, guys, let me know, what you thought of these, I'd love to hear your feedback in the comments below.
