Make your wardrobe work for your with these wardrobe essentials






Spring 2021 is hitting a little different for me. Mainly because this time last year, we were locked down due to a literal global pandemic, which still blows my mind. Although we’re not quite out of the woods yet, things are slowly getting back to some form of normalcy. THANK YOU SWEET BABY JESUS!!!

I believe that we’re moving pass the days of just dressing up loungewear and are now wearing actual clothes and I’m here for it!!!

Here are my Wardrobe Essentials to help make your wardrobe work for you. Be sure to check out my last post on how to transition your wardrobe into spring. The theme for this Spring is, effortless. Creating looks that looks put together, without much effort. I will teach you how to create a functional wardrobe to create simple and chic looks.

The idea of these essentials is to help create elevated looks that makes people think you put more effort into your look than you actually did. They can be paired with your existing wardrobe to help you get better use of the items that you already have. So let’s get into it:

Blazers

Blazers are a great way to elevate any look. Picking the right one is key. The most flattering style of blazer, that I find compliments different body types, is the oversized blazer. This type of blazer can be paired with a simple top and jeans, shorts and a crop top, or a chic dress. I recommend starting out with a linen blazer in a neutral color, like tan , which can be paired perfectly with so many other pieces in your wardrobe. If you’re bold enough try a bold color that will provide the perfect pop to very simple looks.

An oversized blazer does all of the work for you in creating the perfect look. in addition to the fabric being light weight enough for the spring and summer months. Here are some of my favorites:




Sneakers

Since most of us are still working from home, our pumps and heels are not worn as much. Sneakers have been wardrobe staples as of late, mainly because they can literally be paired with any look. The classic white sneaker can be paired with dresses, jeans, suits...literally anything! The white sneaker adds a casual element that in turns creates an effortless look. For my fashion girls, try adding your favorite pair of high tops with your most feminine dresses for that cool girl factor. Stay tuned for my post on to create looks with your favorite sneakers. Here are some of my favorite styles:



Comfy Jeans

The days of super tight jeans are slowing coming to an end. Now don’t get me wrong some looks require a great pair of skinny jeans. However, the 90s trend is putting them on the back burner. A great pair of distressed mom jeans, or straight leg baggy jeans are the vibe this spring. They tie into the effortless vibe of the season. As with any pair of jeans, you have to find the right pair and one you do buy them in every color! These type of jeans can be dressed up (my favorite way to wear them) or down. Paired with either a great heel or a cool sneaker, either way, gives your look that cool girl aesthetic. Here are my favorites:


Mules

Either you hate them or you love them, either way the mule is in for Spring! This was a trend that I never used to wear, however when I tried this style of shoe, I fell in love! They are so easy to wear! Whether flats or heels, they tie into that effortless chic look which is on trend for spring. Try a pair in a print or white to elevate any look! Here are some of my favorites




SpringDresses

What is Spring without the perfect go-to Spring dress! Lately, smock dresses have been my go-to if I want to look put together quick and easy. They’re a great foundation piece to let your accessories shine, not to mention they’re extremely comfortable! Pick dresses in fun bold prints, girly silhouettes (think fit and flare), and vibrant colors. Paired with heels, boots, or sneakers, the right dress can give you the perfect spring look. Here are some of my favorites:



The Classic White Button Up

The classic white button up is an essential for every season. It should be slightly oversized to elongate your body. It can be paired with absolutely everything. From a simple pair of jeans or used as a bathing suit cover up, the classic white shirt is a wardrobe staple for every season. Make sure it’s well fitting and crispy white, I usually replace mine every year.

The warm weather is slowly approaching and I’m excited. Although, the Fall season will be my forever love, I am super excited for Spring fashion! Due to our new normal, our wardrobes have changed drastically. But, if you’re a fashion lover like me, you too need to know how to dress for your weekly trip to Target. I’ve got you covered! For this serving of fashion, here are some of my tips on how to transition your wardrobe into the Spring.


Assess your wardrobe

During my past days of styling clients, I‘ve learned that many people do not know what they actually have in their closets. Assessing what you have in your wardrobe allows you to see the pieces that you need to remove and/or add for the new season. It also prevents overspending on clothes you do not need, helps to get rid of clothes you’re not wearing or clothes that are not in good condition and many times forces you to actually wear the clothes that you have. I make it a rule of thumb to do this before the change of every season. As we grow and evolve each season, so should our wardrobes.


Actually try on your clothes

Yes, try on your clothes! I used to teach my clients to dress the body that you have now, not the one that you want or the one you used to have. Keeping clothes that do not fit or that are not in the best shape is, to me, psychological torture! Wearing clothes of great quality and that fit and flatter your shape is the guaranteed way to make you look and feel your best. The only way to know what fits you and what doesn’t is to literally put your clothes on your body. For my personal wardrobe, I follow four rules set for myself. If I cannot fit it or if it doesn‘t flatter me, if I haven’t worn it in a year, if it’s worn out, or if I don’t absolutely love it, without question I get rid of the item or donate it. Make it a practice to not hold on to things that do not suit you.


Utilize your shoes and accessories

This tip may seem obvious, however many people do not actually know how much their accessories can transform any look. Utilize your accessories in every aspect of your wardrobe. For example, boots and sneakers are a great way to take make your dresses casual. Or adding some arm candy (bracelets), nice earrings, and/or dainty necklaces can dress up any loungewear piece. Your accessories are key ways to elevate your look, so have go to items that you know will compliment your style.


Add pieces that can be used multiple ways

Find pieces in your wardrobe that can be used multiple ways, for example the classic white button up shirt. This piece can be worn to work, date night, running errands...there are endless options. Closet staples, like the classic white shirt, are essential because they give you options for creating different outfits. Pieces like this should be in great condition and replaced regularly because of the multiple ways that they can be used. Stay tuned for my wardrobe essentials post.


Love what you wear

Don’t settle for items of clothing that don’t make you feel your absolute best. Find pieces that get you excited to dress up, pieces that you KNOW when you wear them you will kill. Fashion is a creative outlet to express yourself and I am a firm believer that looking good makes you feel good!



I hope these tips will help you take your Spring wardrobe to the next level! Comment below how you plan on transitioning your wardrobe to the Spring season.

One of the most important parts to a bomb beat face (in my opinion) are the brows. A perfectly defined brow (fit for your face shape of course) can elevate any makeup look. Nowadays eyebrows are taking on many shapes and forms, from straight, fluffy (my personal favorite), ombre, or none at all.






Figuring out the perfect brow for your face shape can be overwhelming for beginners, however with practice you can achieve the perfect shape every time. Here are some of my tips:


You have to figure out the look you want! The best way to find the perfect shape for your face is to follow your face's natural shape. Yes, your face can literally give you your best brows! Here’s a short tutorial:



You also have to figure out your tools. I find that the easiest way to achieve a great brow is with a brow pencil. I personally like a natural fluffy looking brow and a small tip brow pencil is the best way to achieve that look. If you are a beginner in makeup, I would suggest using a pencil. The Maybeline Brow Ultra Slim is my absolute favorite!



Lastly, for me I like the look of a sharp cleaned up eyebrow. I use a concealer (one that matches my skin tone) to clean up my eye brow. This is more of a preference.


If you have unruly bushy eyebrows like I do, one of my favorite beauty hacks is using holding spray to keep my brow hairs in place, such as this one.
