Back To Basics - Top Wardrobe Essentials
Basics are the beginning of becoming an expert in styling!
If you can get the basics right then you are half way there. Dressing every morning will not be your usual struggle when you have the basics ready to roll. You will just need to add accessories and wow pieces to your outfit to finish it off. So I have put together the top basics you need and the top styles we have at Preen that we know are good!
The top 5 basics you should invest in are;
Dark Wash Skinny Jeans: This is the most flattering colour that can match any hue in your wardrobe for casual. Or simply add a heel or boot for evening. Here are our top selling styles we would recommend for you.

LBD: Little Black Dress. If in doubt... go black! You can never go wrong in black. Everyone needs an easy black dress to throw on. You can add the colour with a scarf, earrings or a special wow jacket!

Fitted Jacket: Whether
it’s leather, stretch cotton or a denim jacket. It needs to be a neutral colour
so it can go over anything for whatever the occasion. Versatility is key for this essential item. The fitted shape is essential to showing off your curves and shape. Ensure the jacket hem ends at the right place for you. If you are short waisted it needs to end before your hips go out. Usually just past the smallest part of your torso.

Comfy Black Pants: Do you wear those pants that are a little too tight
across the tummy? Hoping to lose weight and wear them then? Trust me – it never
happens! Buy what fits you now not what you’re hoping to be! The best-selling
elastic waist pant we have is the Betty Basics Jade Pant – a must-have
essential. These two Verge styles are both elastic waist and have a comfortable, trendy and flattering shape. Seriously these are for you to try!

A good slinky slip: When you are buying a slip, it needs to skim your body
and be a smooth fabric. If your undergarment is already too tight and grabbing
then it won’t make the outer layer look any good. Its also a good idea to
invest in some anti-static spray to spray on your undergarments so nothing
sticks! Plus its only $9.90 - shop the anti-static spray here

When you are buying basics, remember these are items you will wear a lot. It is not the time to skimp it's the time to invest. You need good quality garments that will last. Or if you like the more affordable options, buy two of them and rotate!
Happy styling #preensisters!
