basics


Hey everyone

Trends come and go some last a season and some a few but there are items that last in your wardrobes forever, you can call them a basic or a classic but they really are the fundamental pieces that make your wardrobe functional. Miss out on them and you will find yourself in a crisis situation more often than not. The workhorses as i like to call them are the building blocks that help you rock and shine in those trends in a chic and put together way. As per the pyramid rule of fashion styling your wardrobe should have a minimum of 35% basics to keep you well turned out every single time. More on that later!

the wardrobe basics, how to wear a leather jacket, leather jacket outfits, city look, effortless chic, black leather jacket outfit, 2017 top blogger style, top street style, european style, parisian look, what to wear in europe, moto jacket, style a moto jacket, what is a wardrobe basic, wardrobe essentials, working with basics, fashion essentials, french wardrobe, top indian blogger, uk blog, london blog, london street style 2017, british blogs, indian fashion blog, wardrobe must have, pyramid rule, declutter your wardrobe, weekend uniform, winter outfits idea,

I think basics can be different for different people depending on their lifestyle, work, place of living and personal preference. For e.g for some a black jeans maybe a basic and for some a blue so it really depends and i suggest you take a stock of your wardrobe and your lifestyle, etc write the basics for your wardrobe and then make sure you always have them stocked in the perfect condition, I strongly suggest investing in basics so do not hold yourself from spending.


Having said that there are a few items that work for majority of us so i have decided to create a new series on the blog, the wardrobe basics, dividing it further into summer and winter for obvious reasons. In this series i will be talking about the mood of the piece, what to look for while shopping and also some ideas on styling. To start the series, today i am going to talk about the first item in the winter wardrobe basics, a black leather jacket. 

A leather jacket is really a timeless piece that gets better with age.

What a leather jacket does-              1. Adds rocker edgy vibe to any look.
                                                           2. People generally perceive the wearer as more confident.
                                                           3. Makes an outfit casual but still keeps it polished.
                                                           4. Black is a universal colour that goes with everything.
                    

What to look for when buying a leather jacket - Great quality, do not hesitate from splurging as you will wear it year after year.  

                                                
Consider your body type before you buy  
  1. rectangular/ hourglass shape- flare detail or metallic details highlighting the waist.
  2. apple shape-  choose one that is longer with not many details to bring focus to your heavy part i.e the upper body.
  3. pear shape - just the opposite choose shorter length so the focus is on your small part i.e the waist and not your hips.
And here are some ways i wear it and some suggestions to wear:

Go to outfit-               skinny jeans+ tee+ boots
To brunch-                 with a midi skirt / midi dress + sneakers
To afternoon tea-      culottes+ fancy blouse+pointed toe heels
To meetings-             tailored trouser+ shirt+ pumps
To date night-           shirt dress+ leggings+ booties
When its very cold-  over knit or under coat

How to wear a leather jacket in  2017
  1.  wear with pleated metallic skirts + ballerina flats.
  2. high waisted straight leg embroidered denim + choker neck knit+ embroidered jacquard boots.
  3. fringed denim + loafer/ slippers + bell sleeve blouse.
  4. zipped inside a long puffer jacket.
  5. a dark floral lace or mesh detail maxi dress + velvet boots .
