Basic Rules for wearing Basics:

  1. Right Timing. I would never discourage you from being your trendiest self. But this also a time and a place for trends. The cool thing about basic is that they are versatile and can be dressed up and down. But I reserve these look for either hanging out, running errands, or a casual date.
  2. Simplicity. Basics are about looking effortlessly fashionable!
  3. Attention to Detail. A perfectly placed dainty belt, half tucked tee or denim woven around your waist should do the trick. Be mindful of the impact that small additions can make to a look.

What is the impact of having quality basics in your wardrobe? Well a good set of basics set a foundation for multiple looks and provide several options for interchangeable outfits.  I’m talk about taking your tee shirt and jean level to a whole new level! J <3

What pieces are recommended to build a good set of solids? I would say let’s start off simple: dark nice fitting skinnies, solid tees, trouser style shorts, and a button down.

Where is the best place to buy basics? Glad you asked! Of course I shop basics at places like Forever21, Express and Banana Republic, but the point you reading this post is to find some fresh + NEW places to make your basic wardrobe NOT SO BASIC! 😛 Here are a few of my favorite places:
