Confession time: I hate wearing plain jeans and a plain tee. I know they’re versatile basics, comfortable and there are days when they’re necessary. I tend to lean on my everyday basics when I’m in a rush or feeling fashionably uninspired. Which I’m sure you’ve felt the same at some point.
The solution is? I like to creating something that has an unexpected twist or standout piece, which makes those basics feel special. Whatever the time of the day those basics can be dressed up in no time. There are some days I don’t always like to look too casual, but I need to feel comfortable and stylish all at the same time. I find that simply adding a pair of heels, some casual jewellery or a bright clutch or leather bag can elevate your basics to the next level.
For today’s look, I kept it simple and let the accessories do the talking. I paired this white strappy vest with high waisted skinny jeans and then opted for strappy sandals and leather handbag. I wanted to add a little more interest so I wore one of my favourite layered necklaces.
What do you think of my look?
How do you dress up basics?
