One of the most difficult and stressful situations for some of us we encounter when we shop is: What to buy? Of course, it’s an easy task when you know exactly that you only need a sweater, some trousers and a couple of tops (but of course, it’s very unlikely that you will go out of the store ONLY with that and not something else too) but what happens when you don’t have a clue of what to buy or where to start?

My solution is to invest in garments that go beyond the basics but that still can be worn for years without clashing with the trends, and this outfit summarises some elements I consider are a step forward and make any simple and boring outfit into a more stylish one in a very effortless way: an oversized pair of sunglasses, a biker jacket with fabric combination, a lace camisole, a pair of inexpensive or self-made trendy jeans (like this DIY tutorial I made for busted knee jeans) and quality boots that besides comfy are versatile with pretty much everything.

Combining the right pieces, additionally from saving you time, it also saves money. And if you actually see it in detail, it’s as simple as a pair of jeans, a camisole and a jacket.

 Una de las situaciones más difíciles y estresantes para algunas personas cuando están de compras es: ¿Qué comprar? Por supuesto, es fácil saberlo cuando vas directo al grano y sabes que sólo necesitas un suéter, un pantalón y un par de blusas (aunque claro está, es muy poco probable que vayas a salir de la tienda sólo con eso) pero ¿qué pasa si no tienes idea de qué comprar ni por dónde comenzar?

Mi solución es invertir en piezas que vayan un poco más allá del básico pero que aún así se puedan usar por muchos años sin que pasen de moda, y este atuendo reúne algunos elementos que considero dan un paso adelante y convierten a cualquier atuendo aburrido y simple en uno mucho más estilizado sin mucho esfuerzo: unos lentes de sol oversized, una chaqueta motociclista que combine texturas, una blusa de encaje, unos jeans en tendencia que no te hayan costado mucho y/o que hayas hecho tú mismo (como este tutorial DIY que hice para rodillas rotas en jeans) y unas botas de calidad que además de cómodas van con todo.

Combinar las piezas básicas correctas, además de ahorrarte tiempo, te ahorra dinero. Y es que al final si lo ves con cuidado, son sólo unos jeans, una blusa y una chaqueta.
