From Basic to Bold: Upgrade Your Wardrobe Essentials

With summer approaching, it's time to start considering that perfect wardrobe. The best part is, you may already have the key pieces in your closet. But if you are lacking in wardrobe essentials, here are some tips on upgrading them from basic to bold. Examples: ballet flats (go from natural to block colors), white t-shirt (try a new cut/style), leggings for your workout (look for crossed laces at the ankle to add a more sophisticated feel).Many fashionistas and curious shoppers have sometimes mistaken clothing essentials with spending a lot of money. But there are also budget friendly ways of keeping within your paycheck while being adventurous with your looks.  The first step is beginning with pieces you already own and see if there is anything to add or take away to update the original clothes.

A statement dress for weddings, outings, and a weekend getaway.  Don't be afraid to combine bright colors with an elegant design.  Choose something different than your usual maxi dress with accents like an off-the-shoulder sleeve or side cutouts to show off your tan.[embed]https://www.instagram.com/p/BTKkca0DAUn/?taken-by=marshalls&hl=en[/embed]

 T-shirt Takeover

Who said t-shirts are basic? If anything they are the perfect wardrobe staple for any fashion savvy woman. A simple white t-shirt is all you need but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style.
