Just Three Basics

Heya my fellow supermodels

It has been a while. I have been relaxing and enjoying my break before the last semester by simply cleaning out my closet, catching up on some good old romcoms and enduring the chills of winter with Coconut donuts and Chai tea. But now it is back to business, back to basics and probably back to the gym after my sweet indulgence. With the winter chills, the closet cleanout and life changing decisions that I would have to make soon, I realised that sometimes you just need three basics…

1. The Black Leather Jacket

The black leather jacket is a basic that everyone NEEDS to have in their closet. You can dress it up or down, with jeans, skirts, knits, the choices are endless. Be sure to add this basic to your closet which you can find at Forever New, Spree.co.za, The Store, Topshop and Cotton On. If you close your eyes and invest in a genuine leather one well then it will surely  keep you chic, basic and on trend for a good couple of seasons.

2. The Black Ankle Boots 

This season all bloggers, fashionistas and trendsetters are rocking the black ankle pointy boots. Which is perfect for the rainy weather, if you are going for the chic comfort look or simply want to set a trend without trying. This basic comes in leather, the jelly baby and even suede which can be found at Spree.co.za, River Island, Mr Price and Zara. Style these boots with some high waist jeans and an oversized crop sweater, you will definitely be making a modest minimal statement.

3. The Black Bucket Bag

The third and “it’s a must” basic this season is the black bucket bag. With all the things I carry in my handbag, the idea of putting everything into a bucket and looking all stylish is a win win situation. You can get your bucket at Zara, Asos.com, Spree.co.za, and River Island to mention a few.  I am definitely loving this fashion trend which has brought new meaning to the term bucket other than that from KFC. Like seriously can one eat so much chicken? haha excuse the random humour…

With just these three basics, decisions, the winter and the unnecessary wardrobe clutter just got simpler and better. So embrace and enjoy these three basic trends this season but whatever you do, DO NOT I repeat do not be a basic bitch. The world has too many of those.
