8 WARDROBE BASICS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN + MY FAVORITE PLACE TO BUY THEM

affordable wardrobe basics on Dallas fashion blogger

I’m excited to be teaming up with Bldwn which is one of the coolest modern American fashion brands with several stores around the US including one right here in big D!  The Bldwn store in Dallas is conveniently located on Knox right next to Lulu Lemon and I highly recommend checking it out if you live in Dallas.  This amazing boutique is filled with fabulous elevated basics such as great-fitting denim, fabulous tees, cozy knits, and of the moment jackets- all very high quality yet very reasonably priced!

I’ve always said that a wardrobe made up of mainly elevated basics is what makes it so functional and will no doubt make getting dressed every morning easier!  Because of that, I’ve dedicated today’s post to the 8 chicest and affordable wardrobe basics most of them being from Bldwn of course!

8 AFFORDABLE WARDROBE BASICS:

 

 

1.) BLACK JEANS:

Black jeans are a wardrobe essential that every woman should own because they not only make you look slimmer and taller, but they can easily be dressed or down proving their versatility!  The exact ones I’m wearing have an ultra high rise which means they will make your legs look crazy long and the slightly faded black shade is sure to add a bit of edge to all of your looks!  These slimming jeans are also very comfortable because they do have a bit of stretch to them.  I sized down one size and I suggest you do too, I’m wearing a size 24.

2.) BLUE JEANS:

Having a pair of basic blue jeans with no rips in them is essential to any functional wardrobe.  I love these of the moment high-rise straight-leg jeans from Bldwn.  I own them and wear them often because they match everything and are super comfy!!  I also sized down one size in these jeans and got a size 24.

3.) NUDE PUMPS:

A pair of nude pumps is a sure-fire way to elevate any look while making your legs look longer and slimmer, need I say more?!  I wear these nude suede pumps all the time because they’re actually semi-comfortable for a closed-toe heel.  They match everything and this classic style of pump will never go out of style!  The exact ones I’m wearing are by Jimmy Choo so they’re a bit pricey.  In case these are out of your budget I also linked these by Sam Edelman which look almost identical, however, they’re a fraction of the price!

4.) CASUAL TEES:

Hands-down, Bldwn is my favorite place to buy basic tees because they’re all very high quality so they will last longer and the price point is still pretty affordable.  I recommend getting one black, one white, and one leopard tee like the one I’m wearing in this post.  It’s lightweight material and I love wearing it tied up at the bottom to add some interest to my otherwise basic look.

STYLE TIP:  Layer one of their super cool denim jackets over this chic tee when the cooler temps hit.  

5.) JEAN JACKET:

A denim jacket is something you can throw on with a simple jeans and tee look and instantly bring up your level of chicness a few notches!  I love both of these fashion-forward denim jackets from Bldwn.   You can wear them dressy on a date night with heels and black leather pants or dress them down on the weekends with some jeans and some fun sneakers.  I’m going to grab the faded black one and I have no doubt I’ll be living in it all season long!

6.) CASUAL CARDIGAN:

A cardigan is another one of those wardrobe basics that will make getting dressed so much easier for you in the mornings.  Heading to the office, wear it with a sleek midi skirt and some chic pumps.  Heading to lunch with the girls, pair this effortless cardigan with your favorite of jeans and some fab heels.  I personally love wearing this cardigan from Bldwn buttoned up as a shirt paired with their slimming denim to create an effortless fall ensemble!

7.) TRENCH COAT:

To me, there’s nothing chicer than a cool trench coat thrown over a simple tee and jeans and worn with heels of course!  This trench coat I’m recommending is from Bldwn so naturally, the quality is very high and the fit is impeccable!  The material is wrinkle-free and I love this gorgeous neutral shade because it will literally match everything!

8.) LIGHTWEIGHT SWEATER:

Having a few long sleeve sweaters is essential in any functional fall wardrobe.  I love this one from Bldwn because it’s lightweight and not bulky at all meaning it will be the perfect sweater to wear under a jacket when it gets cooler out!

Feel free to grab any or all of these 8 essential wardrobe basics, I promise, they will make getting dressed easier for you every single day!  You’re welcome!
