Looking put-together every day doesn’t have to be optional. There’s a simple way for getting that polished look with the help of easy, neutral basics plus a statement piece. So, keep on reading for the 6 basic pieces that will give you a polished look even on busy days.
- Button-down Shirt
The universal top that looks good on everyone and goes with whatever you pair it with, a button-down shirt is sophisticated and comfortable enough while keeping you polished. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, dress up your favorite jeans with a chiffon button-down blouse that will look chic with heels and a structured bag.
- Dark-wash Skinny Jeans
Elongating, stretchy, dark skinny or straight-leg jeans are a girl’s best friend. Just get a pair in the best fit for your shape, and you’ll never have to worry about looking messy again. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, think of adding some polish to your slouchy tee with a pair of black jeans and fringe sandals. However, there’s a big difference between a stretched-out, faded, and high-quality jeans. You may go for a darker hue that’ll keep its color and provide a plain backdrop against statement pieces.
- Sharp Blazer
You could wear a raggedy T-shirt and look instantly cool if you slipped a dark blazer over it. There’s a style for everyone and it’s worth the investment. Like fashion blogger Danielle Bernstein, think of dressing up your sporty cool outfit and sneakers with a structured sailor blazer. Or, add some classy flair to your cut-off shorts with a sleek blazer like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli did.
- Comfy Boots
Chunky heeled boots can spice up any outfit without needing to go sky-high. Just go for a pair that can be both dressy and casual, and keep the height under three inches for comfort. Like fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, you may even team your boots with the color of your dress to create a cohesive yet effortlessly chic style.
- Classic Coat
The best part about a great coat is that no one will ever notice what you’re wearing underneath. It doesn’t necessarily have to be in a bold color or silhouette, as a classic style does the trick. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may think of a checkered coat that will look classy with your cozy outfits.
- Statement Necklace
A simple long chained necklace can transform the most basic of dresses or tops. Even better if you layer a few thin necklaces together or cheat and buy one that looks like you layered. They’re a statement but not quite as glitzy as traditional statement necklaces. By taking these things into consideration, you’ll be able to get that polished look in no time.
