First things first… this outfit can easily be styled for the bump or without a bump… aka, pregnant or not! I want to still share outfits that will work for the bump and not. I know there’s a mix of followers on Styled by Sequins so I want to do my best to cater to all those tastes. I’m sharing my top wardrobe basics on Styled by Sequins because I’ve had a lot of you asking for help with your closet. So, let’s start here with my top 6 things…
1. Denim Jacket
Let me tell you something, denim jackets are not out of style. I wear denim jackets all year round and I think they’re the perfect addition to any outfit. My biggest tip when shopping for a denim jacket is to look for a light/medium wash. Reason being is the lighter/medium wash jackets can easily be worn with dark jeans. That’s my tip for wearing denim on denim and not look like you stepped out of the 80s or 90s.
2. Basic Casual Black Dress
Everyone needs a good black t-shirt dress in their closet. Dresses like these can easily be dressed up or down and styled so many ways. I tend to style my t-shirt dresses on the casual side, but either works! I’ve linked some great black t-shirt dresses (both maternity & regular)
3. Cute Sneakers
Sneakers are hard to choose when wearing with a non athletic outfit. You have to wear the sneakers that are not for working out. If you can workout in them, don’t wear them with your normal clothes. That’s a big fashion no-no!
4. In Style Sunglasses
My biggest pet peeve is when people wear sunglasses that either don’t work for their face frame or are so out of style. Please don’t wear your biking sunglasses with your cute clothes or sunglasses you’ve had 15 years ago. It’s time to get with the trends and invest in some good sunnies. I’ve linked some trendy sunglasses and at different price points.
5. Good Tote Bag
Tote bags are like sunglasses, if you’ve had the bag for 15 years… get rid of it! I can guarantee it’s out of style. The best advice I can give when shopping for a good everyday tote bag is to see it in person and don’t get the ones with the buckles on it. I’ve linked some cute bags that are so on trend!
6. Everyday “Good” jewelry
I’m a jewelry fan and love a good pair of statement earrings. If you’re a jewelry fan than get some good basic statement earrings that can go with a wide range of different styles and seasons. If jewelry isn’t your thing, then get a cute pair of studs. I’ve been loving my Mustard Seed necklaces, they’re so classic and can be worn everyday or dressed up.
I hope that helps clear your mind when shopping at your favorite store or online! Snag these basics and you’ll be set to go. If y’all have more questions regarding what your wardrobe needs email me or direct message me on Instagram, @styledbysequins.
