The fashion staples
Shopping for the basic essentials in your wardrobe is not as easy as it seems. Kaveri Waghela helps you find the perfect white tee, the strikingly simple LBD or those enviable pair of nude pumps that exude comfort with style
Three are some pieces in your wardrobe that you always reach out to. They are absolute ‘must-haves.’ Apart from being the most versatile clothing, they are often considered to be the most comfortable.
Pria Agni, a fashion stylist, explains, “ I think a white T-shirt and a well-fitted blue chinos are absolutely necessary in every man's wardrobe. For women, a classic black dress and nude pumps are the most versatile bets for every occasion.”
Print on print, colour -blocking, androgyny…fashion trends change with very season. So much so that people find it almost impossible to keep up with the changing trends. At such times, the basic pieces in your wardrobe help you survive the fashion clout.
Agni says, “It’s good to have a role model in bollywood stars but one should also understand and respect their body image. A monochromatic outfit may not suit people who are on the heavier side. Therefore, it is very necessary to not follow trends blindly. Wardrobe classics, at such times, become a very important comfort factor for people.”
The versatility of wardrobe essentials like a white shirt, a little black dress (LBD), a well-tailored suit or even a basic tee can be mixed and matched with other statement pieces that can create a right balance in your look. Says Agni, “ A printed scarf can add an instant pop of colour. For men, a good-fitting pair of trousers can not only make one very comfortable but also appear very stylish.”
So whether you want to create a statement or just keep things simple, your basic wardrobe essentials are the most safest bet!
