Styling A Basic Essential – Look 1

“Fashion is not necessarily about labels. It’s not about brands. It’s about something else that comes from within you.”  —Ralph Lauren

Hi loves! I know it’s been a long minute since I put up a post. I promise I didn’t abandon you guys, I’ve just been busy plus I really want to incorporate the things I learnt from here to make my blog better.

Todays post captures look one on styling a basic essential. Basic essentials in fashion, are items that are absolutely necessary.

They range from tank tops, to sweats, a plain white or black tee, a litte black dress (LBD), ballet flats, a blazer etc. Basically, your day to day fashion items.

The focus here is the grey almost mesh top. It could be worn alone with denim or a skirt but the idea is to switch the look up.

For this look, I paired it with my not so wide legged pants and stoned collar mesh top.

It’s no news that black is my fav color but I didn’t want it to be the everyday black and grey look so bam! Pink shoes for that extra extra. You like?
