Bottoms Up: 6 Staples for Your Wardrobe
Remember when I told you about the fashion staples beyond the LBD every girl absolutely must have? Well, today I’m going to tell you about the six kinds of bottoms every stylish girl must own (beyond your many pairs of jeans) - and I take all of them very seriously, who knows when you might have to mix and match, right?
Pair this up with a short tunic, kurta, long shirt or even a long tee, you know you’ll look stylish. These discoveries from the cotton, and off late, leather world, have been the savior from the non-stop denim rut a lot of us have been in for years now.
Style tip: If you’re heavy on the legs, leggings can never be your BFFs
The ultimate hybrid between leggings and jeans, jeggings can be worn with literally anything. Add them on anything from your work look to a casual day out and you’re all set. These are my go-to for any occasion, and can be teamed with a pair of heels or flats, depending on the look you’re trying to work.
Wide leg pants / Palazzos
They’re trendy, they’re sexy and they add so much volume, you could wear them with both, casual and formal looks. Celebrities have been seen wearing these everywhere, from formal events to the airport; make sure you’re not left behind. Oh, and here are tips on how to wear palazzo pants.
Style tip: Avoid these if you’re heavy on the hips; don’t forget to wear a fitted top.
Shorts are a staple for more than just a simple, obvious reason. Worn low or high on the waist, they can be used for looks with great versatility and can be styled to be worn casually, to work or even party.
Pencil skirts or peplum skirts, these can be teamed with slippers or heels and can always be flexed into different looks. From formal work wear to college going girls, here’s a piece that is so recreational, and yet so conventional.
Long Skirt / Maxi skirt
Slits, no slits, many slits – all of these are officially in vogue and you absolutely must stock these up really, really soon! Be quirky and pair them with long shirts or take the regular route and wear them with tank tops and fitted tees, the choice is yours.
