Lay the Foundation with Katie JackyO September 16, 2013 Jerz's Life, Network Lay the foundation with Katie Welcome divas… Nothing in life can function to its highest potential without a solid foundation. That applies to your wardrobe as well, and it is not too late to lay that foundation! So today I am going to share some pieces (with respect to the upcoming seasons) that I believe are key to having a functional wardrobe that will be versatile & basic enough to work with so that you can present yourself in a polished & stylish way as you grow your “arsenal” & build off of it according to your personal style and whatever is currently trending that you may want to incorporate into it. – Pair of skinny jeans… I would recommend dark denim for the purposes of this post (skinny, or whatever cut is most flattering for your figure, if you don’t know how to find a fit the flatters make sure to check out Jacky O’s post on Sundays) – Black blazer -Crisp white T-shirt – LBD (little black dress) – Pumps in black and/or nude – Pair of hoops – Printed scarf (I recommend leopard print as it is a versatile, timeless classic if you’re on a tight budget & can’t decide which print to go with… okay maybe I’m just a sucker for leopard print). – Ballerina flats or some cute loafers – Black leggings – Button down blouse (still on my search for the perfect over-sized white with blue pin stripes myself) – Sweater dress or tunic that can be dressed up or down – Basic pair of boots or booties – Handbag for every day that is versatile – Versatile clutch – Pencil skirt – Graphic tee – Piece of statement jewelry – Leather jacket – Pea coat Keyword: versatility!
