Spring 2016 wardrobe basics update

It’s nearing the end of Winter, so time to get excited about getting warmer weather ready, yay!!!! I posted my spring wardrobe colour and inspiration moodboard here on Monday, now I’m sharing the 10 pieces that will form the basis of my transeasonal ‘drobe. I’ve split it in half so it’s not too much to take in and today are my first five basics, tomorrow the second half! I’ve hit up Bohemian Traders & Decjuba today, because they do rad things at rad prices and the quality is always, well, rad <3

Bohemian Traders have launched their latest line of Basics with updated colours and shapes, so this is a fab place to start if you are rebuilding your spring wardrobe from scratch…as I am now all breastfeeding is done and dusted.

Drop Crotch Pant in khaki $129, a fave of many fash bloggers, these can be worn a multitude of ways, with lace up heels a la Elle Ferguson or white kicks as shown in pic, with tees, blouses, jumpers or cami’s
Zippy Midi Skirt in black $71.20 (sale) dress down with a tee & sneakers or boots, or dress up with a cami or blouse & heels
Classic Scoop Neck Tee in white $59, classic, white, no need to say any more really

Corinne Core Cami $49.95…in a multitude of colours, loving the black, white & this moss/khaki colour <3
Billie Jean $79.95 (limited time price)…stretch material, elastic waist & mid rise…perfection in a jean & perfect at this price to nab in all 3 colours (black, grey & white), although if I had to pick just one for spring it would be white despite the fact I’m a grot-white is just so spring!

These five basics alone can be mixed up and worn together in many different combos;

  • jeans and cami
  • jeans and tee
  • drop crotch and tee
  • drop crotch and cami
  • skirt and tee
  • skirt and cami

It’s so worthwhile taking the time to sit down and work out your colour palette and what basics will form the foundation of your wardrobe for the season ahead. Cuts out a lot of unnecessary, spur of the moment purchases that look ace but don’t work with anything you have already. Nutting out the very basics gives you a solid base of workable outfits that you can then add a few on trend pieces to.

Stay tuned for the rest of my basics tomorrow and I’ll put together some different outfit ideas on how to wear them for you xx

did you see the header pic of uber babe Lara up top? Basics done to perfection. You can see this skirt worn a few diff ways by Lara if you search pinterest enough- with tee, cami, jacket showing how the right basic can earn it’s place in your wardrobe!
