This post is a continuing deep dive into various outfits using the same base of classic basics combined with items you may already have in your wardrobes. I’m showing you looks I wear to events we might have in common at this time in our lives. Part 1 of this series is here, and Part 2 is here.
The scenario for today’s look is lounging or traveling by land or air. Even if I’m not planning to leave the house for anything more than an afternoon walk, I am usually dressed in street clothes by daylight. So, a pair of black pants in a soft, sturdy knit material that doesn’t cling or pill is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. A sleek-fitting top with a flattering neckline, combed hair, and a clean, moisturized face gives me a positive start for the day. If I’m already showered and mostly dressed, throwing on a comfortable sweater and jewelry isn’t time-consuming if I must dash out to help my parents or run an errand. When I travel, I always wear soft, comfortable clothes to layer as needed.
Soft knit pants and slip-on loafers will always be my first choice for travel. The pants are here. The tee is the best first layer I’ve found for cooler weather. The tee is here.
My reasons for liking this tee over others include a feminine, flattering neckline, a smooth fit, and fabric that allows outer layers to move freely across it. The key to successful layering is to start with a base of slim-fitting, smooth-textured garments.
A similar cardigan is here, and another similar cardigan is here. I like the shoes so much; I bought them in three colors. Shoes here.
The Teddy Blake bag is here. The watch is here. The earrings are here. The ring is here.
The bold silver link bracelet is here. Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.
Two more segments remain in this series. I’ve used the ‘Basics as a Base’ formula as I dress for several years, and it helps me look my best almost effortlessly. I hope sharing what I’ve learned enables you to get the most out of your wardrobe. Do you use dressing formulas? Please comment below to share your helpful tips.
