le closet essentials.

The beginning of a fantastic wardrobe starts with a lovely lil' collection of basic items, believe it or not! These are just MY closet essentials, they don't have to be yours! That's what fashion or really any kind of art is all about to me, no boundaries or rules. Enough rambling, time for ze collection.
Also, some tips for creating your own closet essentials, drum roll please..
1. Pick a color palette. Find colors that aesthetically please you! Mine are neutrals, from black to white and brown or gold with pops of red/maroon and navy.
2. Find your fashion inspirations. Mine are Kylie Jenner, Aurora Mohn, Demi Lovato and sadly, One Direction.
3. Take common pieces, like combat boots from Demi Lovato or converse from Aurora Mohn, and match them with your color palette.
Basically, after you get your essentials, you can start to really personalize your wardrobe and branch out to find your spark. It's like playing guitar, once you get the first simple chords down, you can start learning new ones and making your own music/style ;)
