I’m really trying to update my basics at the moment. I’ve had enough of crazy pattern clashing and wild colours. Don’t get me wrong, I still love those things but they always look better with a plain tee or simple jeans. Basics don’t have to be boring, they just need to be paired with the right things. Here are the ones I’m loving right now.
|This mesh insert tee is simple enough to dress up, but once you take off your leather jacket, BOOM! Check out the detail. Love it.
This plain white tee has a sneaky little Aztec print that you’d barely notice if I hadn’t mentioned it.
River Island £16
|I get nearly all of my plain black tshirts and vest tops from H&M. This one is perfect to wear with blue jeans and layered up with a big chunky scarf.
|Having a new texture to a basic tee brings exactly what a pattern does – something new, but in a more subtle way. This one has a crepe paper like effect and a cool boxy shape.
Monki £15 (in the sale)
One basic I can’t live without is my plain grey jumper. It’s so comfortable! I always find the best jumpers in the men’s sections of high street stores. Where do you buy your basics?
