Helloo lovelies! Do you ever look in your wardrobe and have a DQ [drama queen] moment when you don't know what to wear? You keep using the same old excuse that you don't have enough clothes. You are not alone, that happens to me ALL the time! Like the other day, I had no idea what to wear to uni.. Today, I will be showing you how to dress from the basics you have in your closet. This is great to transition your Summer wardrobe into fall appropriate looks. Let's start with a basic piece that every girl should have in their wardrobe- a little black dress AKA LBD.
Here I am wearing a LBD with cut outs on either side of the dress, exposing some epidermis [Oooh la la!]. This is a great party dress but for Uni? Maybe not so appropriate. It's absolutely freezing in the morning. Trust me having to wake up at 5am in the morning, I know. I want to be cosy and warm. However I also know that when it's noon, it gets quite hot. So we want that balance to find something that is suitable to wear for that type of weather.
Cardigan as an outerwear is the way to go. It's lightweight but it'll still cover you up to keep you semi warm. Wearing a cardigan with a dress can make you loose your shape and figure. To bring those curves back, you know what to do next, right?
Bingooo! A belt is your best friend in this situation. Placing a belt on your waist over your dress and cardi, will help cinch in your waist. Thus, giving you a better silhouette and figure.
To accessorize a little and also to keep me snug and warm, I added a grey knitted infinity scarf.
THE FINAL LOOK!
TAA DAA! This is the completed look. I added a pair of patterned tights and some black wedges booties. The black on black with the tights and booties will give the illusion of longer legs. C'mon! Who doesn't want to have model legs?! I also really like the black and grey color combination. It's a classic.
So when you are figuring out what to wear next time, try to start with a basic piece. Then layer up!
Let me know what you think of this post.
