Hey there! Today’s Wardrobe Wednesday post is all about one of my recent favorite places to shop for wardrobe basics – H&M! I’ve come to grips that I have better “luck” purchasing certain wardrobe staples from department stores/or online stores. The H&M Plus Size section happens to be one of those places. I recently purchased a pair of leggings and a tunic from the site. I also have a few more items sitting in my online cart, waiting to be purchased by the weeks end. I’m smitten with their selection of basic pieces because #1, their prices are very reasonable and #2, the quality of the items I’ve purchased have been great. That being said, I decided to create 3 different looks using some of my favorite basic pieces from their site. Some items are H&M plus size, others are from their “ladies” section.
The 1st look includes the pair of leggings I have. They’re super soft, stretchy and true to size, which is very important. The black handbag is an item I have sitting in my cart, lol. It’s simple, chic and can be worn all year and for several occasions. As I’ve said before, I’m all about purchasing basic pieces these days. You can do so much with a closet full of wardrobe basics – the possibilities are endless!
Remember when I told you I was entertaining the possibly of adding more skirts to my wardrobe? Well, this pleated skirt maybe my next addition. I decided to create an outfit around the skirt and an H&M blazer. Adding the leopard booties and fun t-shirt seemed like a good way to make the look my own. The t-shirt is something I can find while thrifting. 😉
My final look includes a trench coat, a wardrobe “must have” that I recently added thanks to the Goodwill, and a basic jersey dress. These two items can be styled perfectly work work and play. Adding some simple jewelry and a fashionable tote bag makes the outfit work appropriate. The snake skin booties are a great way to make the outfit fit your personal style.
So where have you been shopping for basics lately – I want to know!? Have you shopped the H&M Plus Size section? If so, what’d you think? Let me know! Talk to you tomorrow….be blessed & stay safe!
