Style Q&A: do you need to buy more basics?

Embrace your basics.

I love to wear my basics. I love to buy pieces that are a basic.

In fact, I would always choose a basic over a non-basic.

Do you get that excited about clothing basics?

...probably not.

But I got a message for you today and it’s this:

wardrobe basics are not what you think.

When our friend asked this question over on Instagram stories, I knew I had to answer it. (And I knew it deserved more than 10-second choppy increments IG stories gives you.)

How to overcome clothing envy (A.K.A. What to do when you want all the clothes on Instagram and pinterest)

Do you ever find yourself head-over-heels obsessing with clothes you see on other people?

Comparing you clothes to theirs and wishing you had those exact pieces?

Maybe you even furiously investigate where it’s from and how you can buy it.

Or maybe it’s not just specific clothing you find yourself envious of—maybe it’s entire styles? You want the bohemian style, but you also want to dress professional ladylike, and then you see someone’s rocker style and want that too.

Is your hand up? Because mine is. I’ve gone crazy trying to click-through Pinterest pins to find out where I can buy a dress. I’ve felt totally jealous of someone’s entire outfit on Instagram that I’ve got as far as the checkout page.

In this edition of Style Coach Light, I help you overcome clothing envy and style comparison—so you’re not wanting to go crazy loading up online shopping carts.

What to buy for fall (how to make the right shopping list for you)

One of the pieces of fashion advice I give all the time as a personal stylist: buy less, choose better.

You might have heard it before. In fact, it’s become a kind of motto being thrown around on this here internet—but there’s a big component this concise minimalist mantra leaves out: what does choosing better actuallymean?

Fashion industry members use it to mean spending more money—buy less, choose more luxury pieces.

But to me that doesn’t add up. A piece that is made “better” doesn’t necessarily make it a “better” choice for you.

A better choice is one that you love. One that is aligned with the lifestyle you live, the story you want to tell, and—here’s the kicker—the budget you have.

In other words, “choosing better” looks like an easier time getting dressed everyday, more clarity in your style, and less financial and shopping stress.

But when we get to the store, it’s really hard to know if a piece will do all those things for us—if it will be a good choice.

So, I came up with a method. A method for how we can actually choose better.

And today I’m sharing it with you, so that this fall you can choose better.
