basic training

Stripes! Gingham! Cut-outs! Crops tops and off-the-shoulder-blouses! These were the headlining Spring 2015 trends on the New York runways. Meanwhile, off the catwalk, wardrobe basics grabbed the spotlight. I'm talking good old jeans, crisp button-down shirts, denim blouses, classic pointy-toe slingback pumps, and go-with-everything black bags. The look is all-American, elegantly understated and forever stylish. While I already possess many of these closet staples, I'm inspired to seek out a few updates that will endure for seasons to come, such as these black slingbacks by Jimmy Choo, Paul Andrew and Nine West. (As far as classic black pumps go, I still swear by my Louboutins, but covet these sexy shoes from Gianvito Rossi.) Denim-wise, I'd love to stockpile these cropped dark wash Rag & Bone jeans, these vintage-looking relaxed-fitting Citizens of Humanity, this Madewell denim shirt and this button-down blouse!

The Rag and Bone link actually links you to the Laboutins ... do you mind posting the correct Rag and Bone link, Marlien?

A timeless, stylish look like this is my absolute favorite. I always look to Elin Kling for simple style inspiration!
