Recently, I’ve been working on revamping my struggle wardrobe full of tragically outdated fashions. I realized that in my valiant efforts to become the most stylish girl in my crappy small town, that I owned no basic wardrobe staples. Despite me buying 50 pairs of suede skirts from Topshop, I didn’t own one plain white shirt. Not one. In order to remedy this tragedy, I’ve been focusing on buying more basic things that go with the rest of my wardrobe. Here are my five basic fashion essentials!
1.) The Plain White Shirt
On my many numerous shopping trips, I bought a ridiculous amount of shirts. Leopard print, floral, dotted, you name it. In my closet you’ll find a ridiculous amount of patterned shirts from Zara. Recently, while going through my closet I realized I didn’t have any white shirts to go with anything. My floral trousers, my suede skirts, my leather shorts all had nothing to be worn with. Recently, I bought this plain white shirt from Mixxmix for $10.91.
2.) The Black Turtleneck
Aside from me not owning any white shirts, I didn’t own any black shirts. I also didn’t own any turtlenecks. I used to be an avid hater of turtlenecks because I felt like I looked like one of those try hard bougie niggas from the suburbs. Despite me being a stereotypical bougie nigga, I didn’t want to fall into that trap. Because I’m fake, I bought my first turtleneck from Mixxmix last month. The only reason I bought it was because I didn’t want to pay for shipping fees. When I got my turtleneck in the mail and tried it on, I was shocked. This turtleneck was like the second coming of Jesus. Instead of succumbing to the trap of tryhard bougieness, I looked like the finest nigga on the block. My normally average boobs looked like 34 Ds. I actually looked like the slim thick black girl I envisioned in my dreams. For ten dollars and ninety-one cents, I had a fire turtleneck in my closet.
3.) Black Ankle Booties
Prior to my wardrobe revamp, the only boots I had in my closet were a dusty pair of Bearpaw boots. The only reason I even bought those boots were so I could get a knockoff pair of Uggs for a cheap price. In order to replace my struggle boots, I bought an affordable pair of black ankle booties from Joe Fresh for $24.94. The heel isn’t too high and is perfect to wear casually with boyfriend jeans. To my surprise, the quality wasn’t complete crap and they go with everything I have in my closet.
