Wardrobe basics

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.
Topshop £20


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.
H&M £6.99
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?
