There has been a lot of talk lately about “minimalism” as it applies to fashion. How pairing your wardrobe into a few basics pieces that you really love can save you a ton of time and effort when getting dressed in the morning. French women are a perfect example of this. They are universally known for their incredible style, and yet I have read in several articles written by French women that their wardrobe consists of just a few simple basics. They say with a few key pieces you can create an unlimited wardrobe just by changing the accessories. Below is a cute outfit for every day of the (work) week using the same top and pants. I would love to see if the accessories REALLY made that much of a difference. Tell me your thoughts/opinion in the comments below!
5 Cute Outfits Using the Same Top and Pant!
Monday’s look (sans top and pants): Travel Safari Crinkle Vest $20, Rosegal Vintage Cuff Bracelet $2, Belk Carolee Cubic Studs $35, Embossed Crocodile Shoulder Bag $20, Nelly Lacing Thigh High Boot $34.
No time for a shower? Grab some dry shampoo to soak up the greasies and throw your hair (if it’s long enough) into an easy updo. A two in one product, like this lip and cheek stain saves time when putting on your face. Some highlighter on the inner rim of your eyes will
make you look less hungover perk you right up!
Come hump day you will be looking to really shake things up. To keep people off your “same outfit” trail try donning some gorgeously bohemian fringed accessories and a bright lip. Keep the rest of your makeup muted to really capture the “hippie chic” vibe.
If you have drinks with the girls or a hot date after work simply wear a saucy bodysuit under your work-appropriate top and toss the top on the way to your after hours venue. Throw some liquid eyeliner in your purse and add some winged eyeliner to jazz up your daytime makeup look. The cute kitten earrings keep the look from veering into “street worker” territory.
End this week of “outfit deception” with a bang by adding a super bright (and distracting) pop of color. Bold, graphics like this striped blazer work overtime to create a whole new look. Another no shower day? Spritz on a fresh but saucy floral perfume like this one to boost your beauty mojo. Keep your updo or ponytail in place all day with some super-duper hold hairspray and strut your style-smart stuff!
