Our sweet friend and fellow Bolt Babe, Caroline, came up with a list of her top must have items. These styles are closet staples that you will wear over and over again! If you haven't read Bolt Basics Pt.1 check it out here, see the first five basics you need to have in your closet this summer!
Little Black Dress
Having a black dress you love and feel confident in is a wardrobe game changer. These are a great “go to” to have for any and all special occasions. The ways you can style these simple, showstoppers are endless! My personal favorite way to style is by adding a pop of color - pink block wedges and tying the whole fit together with pink lipstick.
My favorite outfits usually involve an oversized crewneck, you just can’t beat them. Layers are essential for the Midwest, especially in between seasons, these two crewnecks are the perfect outer layer for a spring day. The “Stay Home Club Grey Crewneck Sweatshirt” can be paired with black leggings and some sneakers or you can spice up the look by adding colored leggings. The “Galaxy Tie-Dye Reversible Pullover” is great to throw on over a tank and jeans and tie it all together with some gold hoops.
Black jeans are essential because of their versatility - the styling opportunities are endless! Black jeans are also able to be styled and worn in all four seasons. For a dressier look, pair with a leather jacket or an oversized blazer. For a more day to day outfit pair with your favorite cropped tee and a fun pair of sneakers or patterned booties.
Biker shorts are my newest obsession and are great for the spring and summer days ahead! The “Your Favorite Ribbed Biker Shorts” are true to their name, seriously my favorite. I love the detail and texture, add an oversized tee or your favorite crew neck and you’re all ready! The “Leopard Biker Shorts” are a necessity - be sure to grab the matching sports bra! The simple pattern adds just the right amount of fun to your everyday wear. These are great for running errands, a workout and everything in between!
The coziest outer layer we all need - cardigans. Cardigans are great for transitioning into fall and spring, these seriously feel like you’re wearing a hug. The “Coffee Break Cropped Cardigan Sweater” is a neutral color that can be paired with any color tank top. The “Hot Cocoa leopard Sweater Cardigan” can be styled with a fun workout set or jeans and a cropped tee - can’t wait to see how you style yours!
Happy styling - can’t wait to see how you rock your new #BoltBasics!
