Every gal needs a pair of jeans they L-O-V-E. These jeans should take you from Netflix and chilling, to dancing the night away, and have your back for everything in between. Whether you’re a skinny jean addict, love a 70s flare, or can’t bear to be parted from your mom jeans, there’s a denim look for every ‘drobe. The best thing about denim is its versatility. If you’ve got a day to night thing, then pair your jeans with a t-shirt and trainers in the day and swap for a bralet and heels in the evening for an instant re-vamped look.
T-shirts are the ultimate basic item, and you can pair them with pretty much anything. Team an oversized tee with super skinny jeans and patent heeled boots for a Kylie inspired night out look, or go for a cropped version over a leather skirt for an alternative look. Tuck a plain white tee into some culottes for a grown-up cool girl work outfit, and wear the same t-shirt under dungarees for cute summer styling at weekends. Graphic t-shirts are still big news too, so if plain ain’t your thing then go for bright patterns or band prints.
A dress is an instant outfit, and therefore the perfect casual essentials for the busy girl. T-shirt styles are super flattering – Wear with trainers in the daytime or heeled boots for a Kim K inspired evening look. If you aren’t a fan of the shorter style, then midi and maxis can still look casual if you style them well. Go for a plain jersey style in a colour of your choice, pick some sandals, and throw on an oversized denim jacket to finish your look off to perfection. The best part about these casual dress styles is they are perfect for holidays too!
Is there anything more annoying than the perfect top that just won’t stop riding up? Well, with a bodysuit you’ll never have that problem again. Can we get a hallelujah? There are so many styles of bodysuit out there, but choose wisely from the essentials and you could have the base for any outfit. Wear a deep plunge bodysuit tucked into a leather pencil skirt for a night out look that celebrates your curves. Or, go for a t-shirt style worn with mom jeans and a belt for an Instagram worthy daytime look. Psst… Backless styles are big news this year too.
You’ve been working hard in the gym all year, and you want to show off those hard-earned abs. Or you haven’t exercised once since PE in year 11, but you just DGAF, and want to show off your perfect curves anyway. So, get yourself a crop top. Whether it’s long sleeved, short sleeved, high neck or plunge, crop tops look great with jeans, skirts and shorts. Make like it’s 1998, by wearing a strappy crop top with high waisted jeans, and layering a sports jacket over the top. Or wear a Bardot crop with a midi skirt for an alternative wedding guest look.
