About this time every year, I begin to run around. I think I need more. I think the outfits have to be big-sequins! Color! Plaids! It’s like it can’t be the holiday season without big! Statements!
And there’s a time and a place for statements. And sequins. And big!
But it doesn’t always have to be the time for all of that. For someone who will tell you that classics and investment pieces are a part of your closet to invest in (sorry, I couldn’t come up with another word!), it’s always amazing to me how this time of year that I flat out forget about classics.
The thing is: classics can be big. And a statement. The most important thing? While they always look good, they’re always easy. You don’t have to over think them. Just put them on and go–and wow!
Black and camel (especially coats) are always my go-to’s. No matter what, they look elevated, they match, and yet they will get you compliments.
Even just running to the grocery store, it’s an outfit you can feel good in!
This year has been a doozy, right? (I know, I keep saying that, but trying to write/think/wear outfits without recongnizing that this year is not what we’re used to feels like I’m trying to pull over on you. And it’s not to say that different can’t be great, it’s just that this year is different. And it’s also aok for the transitions and loses and grief that we’re all going through to be hard!) Part of what’s getting me through are outfits that make me feel good. Especially at this time of year.
And yes, even this year, I’ll go big. However, there will also be more than one day that I reach for my classics- the tried and true pieces that I know will make me look and feel good. Maybe there’s nothing wrong with being reminded that you don’t have to go big, you can wear classics.
I’m sure that you have similar (of not these exact) classics in your closet. But if you need a refresh, or new classics, I’ve linked pieces like the ones I’m wearing below.
Let’s go big. And let’s wear our classics!
