10 pieces >> 100 outfits!

this post is for the budget-ista && sets out to prove that you don't have to have a big closet to create countless outfits!
 So in today's post, let me show you how to make 100 outfits by investing in 10 new trendy pieces && working with the basics! Let's get started by looking at the 10 investment pieces you'll need to get the look!

these pieces are great because of their versatility! overall, these pieces are mostly season-less && can basically become some of your new basics! most importantly, they are trendy && hip while being classic && timeless, so you can get the most out of them!

every woman needs a strong string of basic's hanging in their closet! these simple pieces become wardrobe workhorses && help form a foundation for any outfit. here are the basic's I pulled for the 100 looks.
now that we have the 10 new investment pieces && your 15 basic's we're all set to style. I broke up the looks by each investment piece && starred the investment pieces throughout to help you keep track!

woo, that was 100! but if you weren't into some of those utilized pieces, here are some alternatives that you could easily substitute (get the look, here)!
now that I have completely overwhelmed you, here is one last look at all 100 outfits!
I hope everyone liked this post && that it inspired you to get shopping && work with your basics to create unique looks! tell me, tell me, what new investment piece are you looking to add to your wardrobe!
