I’ve really been feeling the revival of the ’90s lately—everything from oversized sweatshirts to high-waisted denim. When I had the sudden urge to add overalls into my wardrobe I knew just where to look. I found this pair from Forever 21 for only $35 and was impressed by the quality material. They run true to size, but aren’t super stretchy, so I felt a little stiff at times. The inseam was just right for cuffing, though I have an inkling I’ll chop off a few inches to create a raw hem. If you’ve been wanting to try a pair, now’s the time—you can wear them throughout the spring and into the (San Francisco) summer. They’re also the perfect music festival onesie!

9 Wardrobe Staples

the-minimalist-wardrobe-staples

 

The past few weeks have been crazy busy, so I find myself reaching for my favorite basics on the daily. Here’s my top 9 wardrobe essentials for the minimalist:

  1. Chunky sweaters: Anything but basic, an oversized knit can give a pair of jeans that effortless, “I woke up like this” look. I love a good mockneck option—perfect for tucking away messy hair and creating a faux-bob. 
  2. White sneakers: Forget the flats, sneakers are comfier and more versatile IMO. While I have a harder time pulling off high-tops, low-top kicks are my go-to.
  3. Boyfriend jeans: I should call them girlfriend jeans — as opposed to a true boyfriend jean — are slimmer throughout the leg. I find the straight-cut versions easier to wear on the daily. They add a cool-girl vibe to tailored blazers, feminine tops and preppy button-downs. 
  4. Slouchy tees: No explanation needed. If you find a style that fits you well, I recommend one in every color. I like these from Everlane.
  5. Striped tees: No explanation needed. This classic piece will never go out of style
  6. Moto jackets: I have a soft spot for moto jackets with large lapels and shiny details. Which explains why I own this suede one in 3 colors — plus, it’s under $200!
  7. Crossbody bags: Structured and simple, a black leather bag can be carried day or night. Look for a contemporary shape like the A.P.C. Demi Lune Sac that’ll go with any casual or dressy ensemble.
  8. Mules: Great for any season — unless you’re walking in the snow — mules can replace your basic black boots (although, ankle boots would have been my #10 essential, but I couldn’t fit it on the graphic 😉 ).  Whether you like a flat or heeled style, they’re comfy and the styling possibilities are endless. 
  9. Midi dresses: Yes, petite girls can wear midis! Not usually a dress girl, mid-length dresses and skirts are my kryptonite. I like to wear mine with sneakers or mules for an easy way to feel put-together.

Business Very Casual

I feel uncomfortable in anything that’s not casual. So in true fancy pants fashion, I dressed down this office-friendly blazer with a slouchy tee, jeans, and flat mules. I tend to think I look like a linebacker in blazers (re: shoulder pads), but the length and cut of this one feels less restricting than the ones I’m used to. If you’re looking for a blazer that can be worn day to night be sure to keep these tips in mind:

  1. Look for structure at the waist. Boyfriend (or straight-cut) blazers can sometimes overwhelm the frame and create a boxy look.
  2. Lapels FTW. I prefer blazers with lapels because it adds shape to my upper half. I’ve gone collarless before, only to feel like a bellhop.
  3. Make sure it hits at or below the hips. This length is super versatile and sits well with trousers, dresses, skirts and jeans. I gravitate towards this cut because any shorter makes me feel top heavy, while anything longer makes me look squat.
  4. This might seem like a no brainer, but the fabric makes all the difference. I love this one from Sezane because it’s soft and thin. Thicker materials make me feel stiff and can be more difficult to layer with.
