Ever been in a dilemma where you just sit on your bed and stare at your wardrobe with piles of clothes around you because you think you have nothing to wear? It’s super frustrating because it’s not like you don’t have any clothes, it’s just that you don’t have a complete outfit to wear.
It’s probably because you have too many statement pieces in your closet, which is completely alright if you’re going for a bold look. But, sometimes, a low-key casual look would be something you would want to go for – but you don’t have enough basics or staple pieces for that.
Well, for your next shopping trip, you might want to consider this tip that I will share with you so that you won’t face that dilemma again.
You might be wondering “what do statement and staple pieces even mean?” Well, these terms will make your shopping experience a breeze once you know what they mean.
Statement: Unique pieces that you want people to first notice when they see you. It does not necessarily mean the pieces should be colourful or bright, but they absolutely tell others more about your personal style when you incorporate them into your outfit.
Staples: Basic, yet versatile pieces that will never go out of trend. These “base” pieces are incredibly easy for you to add to your fit, and they will make your statement pieces stand out more. Also, staples usually only come in solid earth tone colours.
Now that you know these terms, there is only one tip you should know that will completely change your shopping game: Invest in your staples.
Investing in basics such as blouses, t-shirts, jeans and sweatshirts will make your shopping life so much easier because you don’t have to worry about them being worn out. Good quality staples will last a long time, and it won’t matter how many times you wear them, because they will always look as good as the first time you wore them.
As you add more staples to your wardrobe, adding on to your statements pieces will be a walk in the park. It’s all about having a nice mix of both, without having to sacrifice your wicked style. Keep this tip in mind – and your next shopping trip will be an easy task!
