Dark Wash Jeans
We're not talking about distressed, faded, acid-washed, or any other fancy denim style. We're talking about classic blue jeans. These jeans defy the test of time and prove to be the go-to bottom for many occasions. Going on a casual date? Pair it up with your favorite blouse or top, and some simple accessories! Going to your internship? Dressing up your jeans is easy with a tailored blazer. The possibilities are endless!
For dressier and more formal events, your trusty denim might not fit the bill, which is why a pair of chic, well-fitted straight cut trousers is a must in every girl's closet. A pair of trousers will instantly smarten up any outfit, and are perfect for looking like a boss in your school presentations or internship, too.
Whether you're tall, athletic, curvy, or petite, you know you can always count on a classic A-line skirt for an always flattering OOTD. On days when you have 'nothing to wear,' rock an A-line skirt and look effortlessly put together in no time.
A pair of comfy shorts is essential for a laidback and casual outfit, but at the same time versatile enough to dress up for. Playing with colors, prints, cuts, and fits can give you endless style possibilities. Going to a party? Opt for a pair of high-waist shorts for a fun look. Or if you're going to the beach, a loose pair of embroidered shorts is both functional and fashionable. Either way, in tropical weather like ours, a pair of comfy shorts is a must-have.
Pencil skirts are one of the most versatile pieces ever. Although pencil skirts are often paired with high heels, don't hesitate to wear it with your favorite flats or even sneakers for a more laidback style.
