back to basics: building your fall wardrobe

October 18, 2016

We all love filling our closets with those spectacular wear-them-once occasion pieces. But it’s really our wardrobe basics that we rely on, day in, day out. It can be pretty tough to find creative ways to mix and match these closet staples, so we asked two of the hottest bloggers to share their favorite cabi Basics. Keep scrolling to check out their tips and tricks on how to rock them!

Jennifer Rand

Belle de Couture,

There’s nothing more versatile than cozy t-shirts and I’m loving these perfect tees from cabi! The Serenity Tee, Wrap Tee, and Double-V Tee are perfect for day-to-day activities and weekend fun.

The Serenity Tee is a must-have for any gal’s closet. Its soft material and oversized shape make it the perfect base for layering into the cool months. I topped off my look with cabi’s Napa Vest and cinched my waist with the Here or There Belt for a bit of a boho vibe to my overall classic look.

The cabi Wrap Tee is the best of both worlds when it comes to a great basic. Its jersey fabric makes it comfortable enough for every day, and its flattering fit and shawl-like collar offers a sleek touch that’s perfect for those dressier looks. Tuck the Wrap Tee into the Sigourney Skirt for an extra pop of color!

There is nothing more classic than a short-sleeve V-Neck tee and cabi’s Double-V Tee is my favorite tee of all. One of my favorite “no-fuss” looks that’s as effortless as it is stylish is pairing a V-Neck tee with a great jacket and some jeans. The Tartan Jacket is the perfect statement topper for my tomboy chic ensemble.

Style of Sam,

Cozy t-shirts are a wardrobe staple and act as a foundation for amazing outfits. I wear them for everything from hanging out with the kids to heading out for girls’ night.

The Drafting Vest is EVERYTHING! It dresses up the Serenity Tee and Slim Boyfriend jeans so I’m ready for an evening out with the gals and still comfy. Just add the right accessories! (Chanel is always a good idea!)

The Wrap Tee is absolutely amazing because it’s dressy but feels like you’re wearing pajamas. I paired it with the Utility Skirt and the Convertible Jacket. I LOVE that the skirt has a pocket, and I would unzip the jacket to head to happy hour after work!

The heather gray Double-V Tee matches perfectly with the Quilted Jacket and is a great staple piece. I love that you can layer with the Duchess Scarf for cold weather, but take off each piece (if you get too hot playing with the kiddos).
