LBS (Little Black Set)

I don’t know if it’s just me, but finding the perfect LBD is so hard! I can never find the right one. Luckily, I have so many LBS (little black set’s)! I can always manage and find perfect little black crop tops and body-hugging pencil skirts. When I pair the two, I love how it looks. Dresses on the top part of your body sometimes don’t sit right, but with crop tops, they’re specifically for the top part of your body and they flaunt and hug you all in the right places! In the pictures below, these two are my favorite!

8 Essential Items To Have In Your Closet

With all of the outfits in a girl’s closet, there are eight items that are absolutely essential to include. Most of these are useful in creating a day-to-night look. For example the high-waisted pencil skirt, the ankle-strap heels and basic black flats, the black denim jeans, and, especially, the classic black dress, or what it’s most famously called, the “little black dress,” can all transform a business-chic lady into a fun party girl.

The blazer is the classic sign of sophistication and elegance in pretty much any appropriate environment. It forms a very mature and business-like demeanor on a woman, but at the same time makes her look very graceful.  Actress Cate Blanchett has been known to wear very basic blazers, and let’s face it, she is the definition of Hollywood sophistication and elegance, after Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, of course.

The bralette, or non-padded bra, is especially useful in creating a sexy yet chic and youthful manner on a woman. This would go well under a loose chiffon blouse or dress.

The classic monogram leather bag may look simple, but it make a woman look sophisticated yet playful and sexy addition to any outfit.

Take note: You probably have noticed that everyone of the items is black. This is because black is the most simple and elegant color in fashion and practically goes with anything. They don’t have to be black; they can also be another dark color, just as long is doesn’t pop out too much. You want it to be the simplest possible (it’s not the thing that should stand out in the outfit). Of course, no one ignores that final reason for wearing black: black is slimming.

What Shoes To Wear With Boyfriend Jeans

Ah, the last step in completing this look. Pretty much you can wear any type of shoe with boyfriend jeans. Preferably, I would wear a strappy heels, detailed sandals, or loafers. Although a white tee and boyfriend jeans are pretty basic, with the right kind of jewelry and statement shoes, you can dress up your outfit and make it all your own!

The Perfect Little Gold Jewelry

Now the key to making a plain white tee and light wash boyfriend jeans stand out, is to wear a lot of little dainty gold jewelry. Layers of necklaces, bracelets, and stacked rings will make your outfit more fun and effortless. I love wearing gold jewelry with every outfit. It makes me feel more put together. I found tons of jewelry online and posted below are my favorites!

The Perfect White Tee

I could wear these all day, everyday, to bed, forever! It’s so hard to find the perfect white tee, especially for me…I’m so picky! Unless I keep stealing my boyfriend’s white tees! It has to fit perfectly. Not tight, just the perfect amount of looseness, not too long, and the perfect depth of the V-shape. I love dressing up a plain white tee with lots of tiny, detailed jewelry. I like wearing 2-3 tiny gold detailed necklaces (zodiac signs, initial, little gems, etc), stacking thin gold rings, and black, gold, and dark red detailed bracelets and cuffs. Pair them with light wash denim cut-offs, black leggings, boyfriend jeans, or white ripped jeans. Below are a few white tees that are simple yet each have their own uniqueness to them.
