Fashion evolves now and then. What is trendy now would be a thing of the past in a few months’ time. But there are staple pieces that never really go out of style, like white t-shirts, jeans, sneakers and the like. These are what fashionistas call basic clothing. In other words, they are your go-to pieces – they are the ones you would easily pick whenever you can’t decide on an outfit or don’t feel like dressing up. But just because these items are considered “basic,” it doesn’t mean they can’t be fashionable. Here’s how you can turn your drab clothes to fab.
- White Sneakers
You probably have a pair of this comfy footwear since you were a child. What makes it a favorite is that it can be paired with just about anything – from a t-shirt and jeans to a Sunday dress.
How to look fab in it: Pull on a deep-V back sweater and pair it with a metallic-looking midi skirt. You can accessorize it with a panama hat or a beanie for the cold weather.

- Crew Neck Tees
Are there days when you feel lazy and you don’t want to dress up? A crew neck tee is the perfect piece of garment that anyone can pull off on any sluggish day. This clothing style was adopted by athletes and the military because of its sweat-absorbent material. Today, even celebrities and models wear it with class and style. The key to pulling off this style is to find the perfect fit. It should be cut slim through the torso and the sleeves should be close to the arms.
How to look fab in it: Wear it with skinny jeans and a grey oblique zipper cardigan. Pair it with black boots, and accessorize with a long chain necklace.
- Cropped Trousers
These are staple wardrobe pieces that were made effortlessly chic by celebrities like Marilyn Monroe. This means that this style has been around for many, many years. A great thing about cropped trousers is that they can be worn by anyone, regardless of size, height or build.
How to look fab in it: Pick a pair with a hemline that falls just right on the leanest part of your legs. And to take your styling game up a notch, choose those with pastel or bright colors.
- Slip Dresses
These slinky numbers may look like sleepwear, but they’re becoming a fashion favorite these days. In fact, you can find simple yet elegant bridal frocks inspired by this form-flattering clothing style. To avoid making it look like a nightwear though, opt for a dark or rich color.
How to look fab in it: Don a sexy slip dress it with a biker chic leather jacket and ankle booties for a day look. You can also wear it with a suede coat and a pair of pumps for a date night. Glam it up with drop earrings or layered necklace.
