I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now..using one basic item in several different coordinates. Wardrobe basics to me are items I can wear with almost everything, whether I dress up or down. Two of my fashion essentials this summer is a tight jersey skirt and a camisole, so I thought I’d feature them in four different outfits!

Jersey mini skirt and camisole are both from H&M

✖ Topshop Blouse | ✖ Forever 21 Booties | ✖ H&M socks

This is an outfit I’d wear out for a casual meal with friends, or on a date. The diaphanous blouse is perfect for the hot weather we’ve been experiencing. Pair it with a simple clutch and you are good to go.

✖ Femme X sweater | ✖ Forever 21 Rosary | ✖ Forever 21 mary janes

You can roll the socks down for a more toned-down look. But toned-down isn’t really my thing, so… Anyway, this is something I’d wear to parties (the kind with alcohol, not the kind with cakes and parents present.) I’ve neglected to take pictures of bags, but this would go with my knuckle duster clutch bag.

✖ m)phosis cardigan | ✖ Forever 21 bustier | ✖ m)phosis mesh leggings |
✖ Shoes from Far East Plaza

I’ve had this bustier for a while now, but I never really found an occasion to wear it often. I think it goes pretty well with the skirt, though! Pair it with mesh leggings although you could leave your legs bare as well. I think I will probably wear it sans leggings to get inebriated.

✖ Shirt from H&M | ✖ Leggings from Bangkok | ✖ Heels from Malaysia

A slightly more casual outfit. Probably great for shopping or for running errands! You can ditch the leggings for a sexier look as well.

I hope this post is interesting. If you have any wardrobe basics you’d like to see us feature in a similar post, please do not hesitate to tell us?

What are your wardrobe basics?

  1. Love it!! It’s always a challenge to wear the same pieces differently, I always end up picking one outfit with it and wearing it over an over again XD.

    Hahah! I love shopping with people – I get the thrill of hunting down nice stuff, and don’t spend any money myself! 😛
