New basics alert!

It's time to refresh your wardrobe for 2019. And we suggest you begin by stocking up on your new basics. While closet essentials are used as your wardrobe base (which you can mix and match with the rest of the trendy pieces you'll eventually buy) but this doesn't mean you have to resort to buying plain and boring items. The goal is to revamp your 2019 closet with updated classics that will provide you a no-fuss yet stylish options through the entire year.

Fancy Footwear

Your footwear should be given as much attention as your clothes and accessories. Whether you're a sneaker girl or heel-inclined ladies, make sure you choose shoes and sandals that have unique elements.

A Printed midi skirt

Midi skirts are new slip dresses, we believe. They're easy to layer and versatile enough to mix and match with anything in your closet. But this season, it's vital that you reach for skirts that are printed. Try some that have animal, paisley, or geometric prints on it to really make a statement.
