Hello there 🙂
While our trustworthy basics form the backbone of our wardrobes (where would we be without our skinny jeans and black sweaters?), We'll be the first to admit that we can easily get tired of another jeans and sweater outfit, especially in the colder months, when they are the first items we reach for. How can we add a breath of fresh air to our staples this and next season? We have summarized some useful tips, tricks and cool outfit ideas below so that your hardworking basics always look fresh and modern. We recommend using the following eight style tips to improve the basics, from runway-approved stratification techniques (we steal a lot from Victoria Beckham's S / S 20 runway show) to meaningful accessories.
Give your staple check blazer a whole new look by putting a strong and light shirt or a hard jacket underneath. We strongly recommend a pink shade – a color that will be very trendy in spring 2020.
Oversized collars are everywhere right now. We especially love the old-fashioned Peter Pan lace collar we've seen on Instagram – a refreshingly chic addition to your simple black sweater.
Take a lesson from Victoria Beckham's S / S 20 catwalk show and wear a blazer over a button-down collar over a simple turtleneck. Bonus points if you choose contrasting colors for each layer so they really stand out.
We all lived in cozy coats most of the season. So what's a refreshing way to wear yours while the temperatures are still cool? A flowery dress with a spring motif is just the thing. Opt for a midi or maxi length that runs through the coat and immediately brightens your look.
A simple white button-down is one of the hardest working items in our closets, but we can feel slightly tired with another white shirt and jeans outfit. Instead, give it a touch by placing a knitted top or bra over the basic. This Zara has already gone viral.
A pleated midi skirt is there for you all year round, but the shoes you wear can give the staple a whole new look. Try wearing chunky boot soles as a contrast to the elegant basic.
To be honest, our black skinny jeans are used seriously, but just when you think you have exhausted all black skinny jeans, a cool jacket comes along to upgrade our look. Combine a trendy oversize shirt jacket with knee-high boots for a modern ensemble.
If everything else fails, the easiest way to refresh your basics is with a meaningful handbag. Choose orange this season, one of the biggest spring 2020 color trends we've seen in the entire street style set.
