The number one priority when creating a well rounded wardrobe is to ensure you have all the staple items first. Staple items would be considered the basics. Once you have found the perfect fits and styles for the basics you can then interject the trendy pieces. Those pieces can elevate the basics and give a little pop of colour, print or even some edge. One of my favorite trends that works wonderfully with basics is cheetah print! My outfit post below shows a silk cheetah blouse with a basic black pant & coat – an easy piece that really gives my outfit a jump start into fall.
