Back to Basics

Is there anything worse than being labelled as 'basic'? Perhaps, emitting dull vibes into the fashion world, or being called out for shopping nowhere other than the designated personification of 'basic', that is Brandy Melville? On first thoughts: no. In the words of Tik Tok: 'Where is the flavour?'. But, what if there was a way to combine a simple outfit into something that shouts 'basic but boujee'?

For instance, picture a plain white tee and a pair of mom jeans - basic, right? But, what if you threw a pair of eccentric earrings into the mix, added a statement bag and topped the outfit off with a pair of standout heels? On their own, these statement pieces may ignite an aura of aggressively obnoxious, 'look at me now' jewellery, but paired correctly and they can alternatively project an image of subtly effortless glam. Accessories can really be the driving force behind your wardrobe.
Earrings: ASOS
Belt: Nasty Gal
Was about to rave about this belt until I realised a pearl fell off at the top right :(

Belt: Prettylittlething
The 'basics' (jeans, jackets, t-shirts etc.) really establish the baseline of your wardrobe, so - as you would imagine - it's paramount that you invest wisely when constructing the foundation of your wardrobe. This doesn't automatically mean that you have to do dish out a lot of money; it just means that you need to detect what looks, fits and suits your body best.

My advice: try lots of options (from multiple brands) before committing on your perfect pair of jeans or seamlessly fitting jacket/tee.

Here are some of the more revered options for 'basics':





  1. I love those earrings! They're amazing, and look so sparkly xo
