As Spring slowly comes to a close and Summer is right around the corner, basics should be apart of your wardrobe. Basics are great, because you can layer with them, they are versatile, and they are timeless, because they never go out of style.
Now, when I say basics, I mean plain t-shirts, no designs or intricate patters – just a plain, old Jane top. These are also what some call essentials, and just like their name, they are incredibly essential this season.
Looks I would recommend include layering your basics underneath tank tops, slip dresses, a denim jacket, or cardigan. The idea of being able to wear them alone or underneath articles of clothing, makes basics very versatile.
One of the best parts about the use of basics is the idea that you can pair them with even your most outrageous jackets, slip dresses, crop tops, etc. Since basics are so plain as it is, pairing them with statement pieces is a great option to take with them. If you want to make your outfit more exciting. pairing statement pieces and basics is a perfect opportunity for you to cycle in wearing your statement pieces this season. I know I do not wear my statement pieces enough, anyways.
If you want to keep the outfit simple, however, throwing a basic on over a pair of jeans is always a valid option. How you decide to wear your basics is up to you!
Basics can come in the form of crop tops, tank tops, basic t-shirts, and basic long-sleeve t-shirts. They can also be loose or form-fitting, distressed and not distressed, low v-neck or high v-neck. Whatever your style may be, there are basics out there that cater to everyone’s needs and desires.
Since the weather is not quite warm enough every day to be wearing summer wear, basics are a great alternative to get to wear your summer clothes paired with something underneath to keep you a little warmer.
Layering is one of the best things you can do for yourself, especially during the transitional seasons.
Break out those basics, it is time to be a basic betch.
