Let’s be honest: while we all love shopping for those extravagant, one-of-a-kind statement pieces, in everyday life we’ll most likely reach for just a couple of our favorite basic, proven items. That one great fitting jeans that makes your bottom look all nice and round, that perfect nude pump that elongates your legs and goes with everything, that comfy white tee you bought like 5 years ago that still doesn’t show any signs of wear. Now basics might not be the most exciting things to shop for, but they’re crucially important for the versatility and combinability of your wardrobe. While recently browsing the newest arrivals at Joe’s Jeans online, I noticed they have a great selection of simple but beautiful basics to offer, so I picked out my favorites to share with you. And while we’re on the subject of Joe’s, have you already heard about their new #HELLO jeans? It’s the first jeans that charges your iPhone on the go. Awesome idea, right? What technology can accomplish these days.

I think it has become clear why celebs absolutely adore the essential trench, and after all who can blame them? As a vital wardrobe must, this trench coat by Burberry is the ultimate classical statement with a contemporary twist. The silhouette is very flattering, framing the body and accentuating (and concealing) all the right places. Featuring leather piping, this adds a modern flair and truly brings a swanky feel to this highly coveted item. Though the price tag is quite steep, the steal below speaks for itself!

Warehouse Pipe Detail Mac

Update (08/03/2015): Just discovered this lovely piped trench coat at Warehouse and thought it would be a nice look for less alternative to the Burberry trench above.

Warehouse Piped Trench

Update (08/02/2012): Check out this fabulous Warehouse trench coat I found on ASOS today. So similar to the Burberry trench, isn’t it? Love this one!

Wallis Tipped Belted Trench

Wallis is currently having a sale on this an amazing Tipped Belt Trench priced for only $88! As trench coat season is soon approaching, this one would definitely serve as a great transition piece plus make a staple in your closet. Also, if you’re against wearing leather, this may be a great alternative to the Burberry trench as it highlights a similar style without the leather piping.

I really wish I would be more of a DIY person because there are so many great fashion DIY tutorials out there and while I would love to try many of them, I simply have to come to terms that my crafts talent is limited. However, those Valentino “Rockstud” DIYs I think even I could handle because they really mostly just require to find a similar shoe and glueing a couple of pyramid studs on it. Doesn’t sound too hard to me. So how about this Valentino Rockstud DIY tutorial then? Banana Republic‘s “Rosella” sandal looks a lot like Valentino’s non-studded little sister and would be just perfect for a Valentino Rockstud DIY project, don’t you think?

I think I must have already mentioned at least a thousand times how much I adore the feminine creations of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. And it seems Poppy Delevingne is also a fan because she took to the red carpet last week looking like straight out of a fairy tale wearing a gorgeous floral Dolce & Gabbana brocade mini dress, red Aquazzura pumps and a Jennifer Behr floral headband. I loved Poppy’s romantic look so much, I simply had to recreate her premiere outfit on a more budget-friendly level. How do you like it?
