There are a few fashion basics that promise to transform anyone into a diva, almost like having a personal fairy godmother. For example, you can transform a boring t-shirt and jeans into a fashionable ensemble just by donning a pair of knee-high boots. Nothing in the fashion world holds such magical fashion powers like knee-high boots. Pair them with a shift dress, jeans, mini shirt, basically anything and you will turn heads, guaranteed. Even ‘pretty woman’ Julia Roberts needed their magic.
Aviators or any other shape of sunglasses that suits your face is the Midas touch that can transform a bad hair day, acne, puffy eyes, dark circles or any other facial disaster into a showcase for chic! Throw in a gorgeous scarf and you are an instant style icon. Having these basic fashion essentials can ensure that you never have to step out looking anything less than ultra cool – always.
Scarves in colours that brighten up your face are an absolute must; stock them in different patterns, materials and designs. Walk in to an optical store and purchase sunglasses, I’m partial to aviators, which suit your face. Take your phone and click pictures of yourself wearing them, it’s hard to make out if something suits you by just looking in the mirror, the coloured tint of the glasses tends to interfere. A photo of you wearing it will give you an accurate picture. Buy a few styles, in different shades; these should form your fashion basics. Always make sure that your sunglasses have a high UV protection rate.
Knee high boots are my personal weakness and I can never have enough of them. However, you should have a minimum of two, one in a classic comfortable style that gives you a classy look and can be worn during the day without spraining your ankle. Every woman should possess one piece of footwear that should exude sex appeal, just wearing it should make you feel like a million dollars and there is nothing more fabulous than owning a knee high boot that is sexy.
With winter a few months away, at least for us in Australia, saving up for a gorgeous knee-high boot is a top Fashion priority. Like everything else in life, Fashion should be planned and thought out. A good quality item will last long and bring you tremendous joy, so think ahead. Fashion is and always should be an extension of your personality; the idea of great apparel is to make YOU feel good. So invest in a few fashion basics with not just your money but also your time, look around, experiment with different styles, until you decide what works and what doesn’t. In the words of Revlon, because your worth it!
