How many times have we heard the infamous basic closet? About the important of basic garments? However, the truth is it chiefly refers to clothes, garments which last in our closets, but… what about shoes? Shoes are just as or more important than cloths. So, today we’re going to talk about the importance of having a good basic closet and the essential role footwear plays in this. And today we’re to identify the shoes you’ll wear season after season. Shoes to invest in since you’re going to get a lot of wear out of them, year after year, that will pay for themselves.
First of all, we have to be clear about what a basic closet is and why it’ll save you when getting dressed in the morning. So, a basic closet consists of garments and accessories which meet the following characteristics:
- Timeless: things that don’t go out of fashion and are always worn
- Good quality: for them to last and resist wearing again and again and wash after wash
- Combinable: easy to match, you can make 1001 combinations with them. Prioritize quality over quantity.
- Versatile: they suit any occasion, 24/7 clothing and footwear, i.e. you can wear them 24 hours a day 7 days a week
- They look good on you: if you going to wear them non-stop, then the garments should fit like a glove at the very least and the footwear not just comfortable but extremely comfortable.
So it’s crystal clear that poor quality clothing and footwear, very seasonal, patterns that tire, etc., are NOT closet basics.
Let’s concentrate on footwear, thinking about something comfortable, good quality, longlasting, which we can wear day in day out throughout winter that keep out the cold, the rain, etc.; and we can use with the most casual, dressiest, walk in the countryside, or a city break look, in other words, multipurpose footwear. And what comes to mind? A good pair of lace-up ankle boots like El Naturalista’s Kentia. Up-to-date and modern so your outfits won’t look boring yet with that classy touch, this means they won’t go out of fashion and you won’t get bored with them. You’ll wear them this season, the next and the next… Make no bones about it they are good basic closet wear, an investment you’ll get a big return.
