How to Wear Basics

teva11web
Something that gets far too overlooked in fashion are the basics. They make up most of our day to day outfits- yes even for me, yet rarely make it into magazines or even blog posts! But truth be told when I’m not working you’ll most likely find me in jeans and a tee! It’s so important to have a good range of perfect fitting tees, tanks, cardigans and jeans that you can mix and match with everything! I’ve included some of my favorite brands, styles and cuts in the outfits above.
And I have to take a moment to talk about the shoes— flashblack 90s! My best friend and I decided to get a pair of Teva Originals (I chose black, she chose white) because there’s just something about them that bring back childhood memories. And man repelling says who? I wore them to a Memorial Day party over the weekend (while all the other girls were teeter-tottering around the pool in heels mind you) and have never received more compliments- especially from guys! Everyone was like “You are SO cool for wearing those!” Like I said, people love what brings back fond memories.

    The right basics can go a long way… It’s not just a simple white tee, but its fabric or the way it fits is what makes it special, loved your post and pictures!! :)
