I hate to be the gal that sits there and laments that I have “nothing to wear” to the party but sometimes I am. But you understand, right? I mean, how many times can you be photographed in the same tribal print maxi dress? I think separates are the way to go. You don’t want the wrapping paper to make a bigger statement than you but you can’t buy a new outfit every time someone has a ____________ (insert major life milestone).
I created a handy chart with some awesome basics that you can mix and match for each occasion. Choose one of each and you’re on your way to looking chic. Toss on some different jewelry, wear your hair up and you’re good to go. Good luck!
