Wardrobe Essentials

Black & White Camisole

Camisoles are very important. I can't express how important they are. They can be worn own there own or even under things like a tee. I suggest starting out with black and white, even though I use black more. But once you have those two color basics, then venture out and get more colors. I get my camisoles at forever21; There the PERFECT price. Remember: these don't last a long time, they will stretch out/ get out of that perfect fit...that's why I go cheap.

Scoop Neck Tee

Scoop tees are my favorite. Even though some people would prefer V-Neck, I can't. I have realized over the years scoop is the best for me. I have a bigger chest area so I like to wear mine a bit looser. Buying It bigger can also work as an off the shoulder shirt. I prefer getting my scoop tees at forever21B. They are loose, breathable and comes in many different colors. Since its a forever21 basic, it is also affordable so you can get the colors you want.

Leggings

OMG! Leggings...I live in leggings at home. They are super comfortable and are the type of under garment, YES! UNDER GARMENT...please dont wear them with your bottom out and showing. I have seem some very disturbing things with people wearing legging just wrong. Moving on, legging look really good under things like short dresses, shorts and even pea coats. I prefer the Forever21 ones. They are a little thicker making them last a little longer. These are another one of those things that don't last very long, due to wear and washing. So in my opinion, don't spend to much. It would suck spending $40USD for something that's going to get out of shape and only last a month or so...I'm just stating.

Blazers

The thing that use to be worn by business people...well not any more! Blazers are the best thing ever. You can dress them up or down and at the end still look appropriate. I've been seeing them in every store. Since I am plus size I like to get mine at Torrid. Start out with a black and a white one. You will notice that you will use these two colors the most. But once you do get these two do venture out and try colors.

Jeans

Jeans are an everyday essential. So always have a good black and dark denim pair. Those two colors will match everything you wear, making getting dress easy. I personally wear forever21+ and Torrid when it comes to the dark colors. Torrid has a large variety and sizes for my plus size shychildren. But if your looking for a pair that will last a long time Levi's is the best.

Heels

For some people, but not for all. Don't freak out about the hells, get a size that feels okay to you. But always have a nude and a black. Nude makes your legs look longer, and everyone wants that. Black is super classy and to me I look better in black ones. I can't really tell you the best place to get these. I have a bigger foot and I prefer to get mine at torrid. Since I get a variety of styles and I can also go down a size sinc there shoes are wide...so lucky me.

Cardigans



Another thing I live in,and if you look though my blog you will see some of them I love. ( I will show you my cardigans in a post). This is a wardrobe essential because you can wear them all year long. So you will get you moneys worth out of them. I know some of you are thinking, "How do you wear them in the summer?" ANSWER: if you buy so light weight ones, I like to put it in my purse. So if it does get a little chilly or windy in those summer days or nights you I'll be prepared (my tip). It's also an essential because you dress it up or down and you can take if from day to night...a WINNER.

Flats

some people cant wear heels all day...I can't. Or maybe your just got off work and you want to take them heels off! Flats are amazing, they are all so dressy shoes if you need them to be...or maybe your hanging out with your friends on a casual night, there still perfect! You can find flats everywhere and they dont have to cost a lot. But make sure to always have a black pair...from exsperiance, you will need it.

Peacoat

When you need a coat buy a Peacoat. Who wants to wear those big puffy things that aren't stylish...NOT ME! Peacoat are super stylish and cute at the same time. Here is wear most of the past things tie in. Under the coat you can wear the Cami or the scoop neck or both at the same time. For the bottom half, legging look nice and so do the dark colored jean...YAY! a win win.

Rain boots

I use to not own a pair and that was such a bad thing. I messed up a lot of shoes in the rain, when I could have just spent the money to get a pair of rain boots. They also save your jeans, simce you will be tucking then into the boots. Also they don't have to cost a lot, since I live in California it doesn't really rain a lot so I bought some Bongo ones at Kmart on sale for only $7.99USD. ( tip: if you buy them right after winter when the stores say they are out of season, you can get them even cheaper.) Or just go to Marshall's.

Flip Flops

My summer love. LOL or like in high school ( don't remember what grade) my everyday shoes. I'm in love with flip flips but not just any pair...OLD NAVY! To me they have the best flip flops, for a very great price, in any color you can imagine. You will for sure find a color that matches everything you have. Spring time is here and summer is right around the corner...and not only that they are easy to slip on and run anywhere. So if you haven't given old navy flip flop a try please do, you will love them.

I really hope these essentials help you out. :)
