STYLE ESSENTIALS: ELEVATED BASICS

DSC_7481
I love finding easy to wear separates that I can reach for everyday, but that offer a little more then a basic closet staple. This generously cut A-line top with a Watteau-like  back is from Cos my go-to for elevated basics. The H&M sister store, offers minimalist designs with a twist. I think  (hope) it will inevitably open in San Francisco!

At this point I get to shop there when I visit  Los Angeles or online.  The wide leg  pants are Cos a well. And can be easily dressed up with a a slinky top, and will look amazing with a chunky sweater when the temps rise. I think the more volume a piece of clothing has the more luxurious it looks, and frankly more expensive. And it is more expensive to make, since there’s more fabric used. Thankfully, Cos price points are very approachable, and would recommend signing up for their mailing list to keep on top of sales.

To accessorize all that wonderful expanse of fabric, I chose a star, moon, and sun necklace from the ’80s (I wore the matching bracelet here). The mixed metals really make it pop. There’s something about celestial motifs that’s whimsical and high fashion (a fave used by Christian Lacroix and Yves Saint Laurent).The necklace, I wore in a previous post, I wrapped around my wrist. Nothing is better then jewelry that can do double or triple duty!

What are you go-to wardrobe basics? Please share in the comments.
