Casual Wardrobe Basics

ray ban aviators

Growing up as a child I was taught to always take good care of my appearance and wear nice clothes, even when I take down the trash or shop for groceries, but even when I'm home - 'cause you know, you never know who might ring the doorbell. My husband says this might have irreversibly damaged me (and he's probably right haha). Some might think that not going out without makeup or decent clothing is a sign of insecurity, which, I assure you, it is not. It is just a question of looking adequate in any situation and being respectful to your fellow human beings who come in touch with you during the day.

With that being said, it's clearly impossible to be at the top of your game every day. Tons of things might happen to you that will spoil your mood, like having to wake up before 11 am, your hair not cooperating, breaking a nail or two, cleaning up cat vomit first thing in the morning or realizing that you still have to wait a month for the Game of Thrones season premiere... Anyway, what I'm saying is: you need a good set of wardrobe basics for those situations when you just cannot manage to put together even a mildly creative outfit, but still want to look like you care.

Today's outfit features pretty much all of my basics:
  • A beanie hat (Hair's not cooperating, remember?)
  • A white button-down shirt ('cause it goes with everything)
  • A black leather biker jacket ('cause it's cool. And goes with everything.)
  • A pair of straight leg jeans. Not skinny, not flared, not boyfriend - straight
  • Boots with a chunky heel. They're comfortable, but they will make you look like you care.
  • A nice handbag
  • Ray Ban aviators - an absolute must, they make anyone look like a movie star.
What do you guys wear when you don't feel like dressing up? What are some of your favorite wardrobe basics? I'd love to know!

Fin da bambina mi è stato insegnato a prendere sempre cura del mio aspetto ed a vestirmi bene anche per portare fuori la spazzatura o per fare la spesa, ma anche per stare a casa - non si sa mai chi potrebbe bussare alla porta. Mio marito dice che questo forse mi ha danneggiato irreversibilmente (e probabilmente ha ragione ahaha). C'è chi pensa che non esco senza trucco o in tuta perché sono complessata, ma vi assicuro che non è così. Per me è solamente questione di essere adeguata in ogni situazione e di rispetto verso le persone che incontro durante la giornata. 

Detto questo, è ovviamente impossibile essere perfette sempre e ovunque. Può succedere un sacco di cose che ti buttano giù, tipo dover alzarsi prima delle 11, avere dei capelli che non collaborano, ti si rompe un'unghia (o due), devi pulire il vomito del gatto come prima cosa la mattina o ti rendi conto che devi aspettare ancora un mese per la prima di stagione di Trono di spade... Insomma, per questi casi, quando non ti senti capace di assemblare nemmeno un outfit minimamente creativo, hai bisogno di alcuni capi base che ti salveranno.

Io nel look di oggi ho utilizzato quasi tutti i miei capi base preferiti:
  • Un cappellino tipo "beanie" (la cura per i capelli che non collaborano)
  • Una camicia bianca (perchè sta bene con tutto)
  • Una giacca in pelle tipo "biker", nera (perchè è cool e sta bene con tutto)
  • Jeans a gamba dritta. Non skinny, non a zampa, non boyfriend, ma classici. 
  • Stivali con tacco grosso. Sono comodi, ma il tacco fa sempre la sua figura.
  • Una bella borsa.
  • Ray Ban aviators - un vero e proprio must, fanno sembrare chiunque una movie star.


E voi cosa indossate quando non avete voglia o tempo di pensarci troppo? Quali sono i vostri capi base preferiti? Fatemi sapere nei commenti qui sotto!

  1. you are so gorgeous! and nahh. always dressing nice is never a bad thing. Someone could knock on the door at 5am and you open it like "why hello, how can I help you ;)" and that way you always leave a good first impression aha <3

  2. I share your thoughts on the basics. When I don't feel like dressing up much I always go for jeans and a white T-shirt. I also love wearing all black. I feel well put together when I do this, a nice pair of sunglasses and leather jacket always do the trick!

  80. I'm exactly the same way, dearest Anett...I NEVER leave the house without looking like I made an effort!! Makeup and a cute outfit - even if I'm just planning to stay at home - has me feeling ready for anything (or anyone!) the day might bring!! You look absolutely fantastic in your go-to combination of jeans, white shirt, beanie and aviators...and that Fendi bag is jaw-dropping!! XOXO
