Basic Fashion essentials


As a lady, there are basic fashion items you need to have in your closet, even if you don't have all or any high end fashion items, having these basics, sets you on the right path of pulling off several outfits. They don't cost much, and set a good foundation for creating good fashion statement. Here's what you need to have or look out for when going on your next shopping.
Cont after the cut..




Well tailored skirt_ A good tailored skirt can be base of a formal look, casual look or dinner look. By tailored,I mean something that fits. I prefer stretchy skirts that hugs the body and accentuate curves and I know some stores that stock them for 1,900 or less. Monochrome colours should be handy and a few floral prints

Shoes_  ballerinas/flat shoes, for a casual day or school, black pumps/ block heels for events and a strappy sandal for hanging out should make the base of your shoe collection. These could be paired with any outfit and the colour black makes it more versatile. The ballerinas go for 2k, the heels should be around 5k or thereabout and the sandals 1.5k. All these can be sourced from your local fashion store.
A little black dress/party dress_ I can't overemphasize the importance of a little black dress (LBD), it can serve five different occasion. Every Lady should have at least one along side a party dress can be worn for parties,clubbing or hanging out.
Bags _ you need a good leather bag, doesn't matter if its not a designer brand, as long as it can serve you, no one would care about if it was made with elephant skin or snake skin. Another bag you could consider investing in is a weekender bag, this is a bag that's bigger to hold items when you want to go for a weekend getaway, chill in "Le Boo's" house or visit a relative. Its bigger than a handbag, smaller than a travelling bag


Skinny jeans_ going to the office, wear a jean, going to the market, wear a jean,going to see a friend, wear a jean. The list is endless you can wear a jean almost anywhere for any function, all depending on how you mix and match.
There are other basic items too like sunglasses, accessories, stripped tee, scraves and hats.
You shouldn't buy all these at once if you don't have sufficient funds, consider these a guideline to building your closet and buy them one at a time.The world is full and I

    2. Laura ikeji I believe you can use some constructive criticism. I don't know what you do for a living but you can't write to save your life. No hating, but you really should check your spellings, choice of words and very importantly your use of punctuations. You should get someone with a good grasp of English language to proof read before uploading here. Don't get me wrong, it can pass in Nigeria where people are just stupidly loyal fans, but if u want to represent class and style? Then please don't write yourself because you can't. You just gave me a headache but I forgive I sweets! Please employ someone or better still, it's a fashion blog, use only pictures.
