Hi everyone! Today I want to talk a bit about basics.
They don’t often have the best reputation but they are the ones who will define your style. Basics are the most important elements in your closet. And generally speaking, that’s what you have the most in your wardrobe. It is also advised to have plenty of basics to create your prefect personal dressing. You should have enough basics so that you can pair it with every bolder piece. For me, basics are a slim jeans, a white t-shirt or a plain sweater. In recent years, the turtleneck sweater has also become a basic because it matches perfectly my personal style.
Once you have found your personal style, it’s advised to pair a strong piece with a basic that will bring it out. I’ve found that pairing basics together can also be a great idea if you want to play with accessories to bring a touch of fantasy in your style.
However, if you’ve seen my fashion boards on Pinterest, you must have noticed that I’m a big fan of looks which are the most minimalist and without accessories. I still can’t reach this level of minimalism in my outfit but this is a goal of mine for the coming year.
I decided to wear only basic because that’s how I dress most of the time to go to work. From time to time, I try to wear something a little more advanced but I always pair it with other basics.
For this outfit I wear my turtleneck sweater from Zara, my jeans from Mango and my Jonak boots that you might remember from the look of “the little black dress”. I’ve had my coat from over a year, it’s a basic from Promod which has become a daily must have for me.
And you, what are your favorite basics?
