Today is all about basic pieces. We all have them, we all love them, so why not make the best out of them? After all, those cotton t-shirts, tailored trousers, blazers, striped shirts and silk blouses are waiting in the closet to get reused in countless outfit combinations. Don’t let them wait! There’s no secret I wear trousers a lot, isn’t it? Well, I find trousers and striped tops some of the best basic items worth investing. Bought these trousers about three years ago, on a finale sale at Mango (5$) and I’ve lost the count on all the outfits I’ve worn them in. What I love the most about them is their versatility. Been able to wear them in both casual and formal outfits. Heading out for a coffee? Then pair your trousers with a casual t-shirt & a biker jacket and you will get yourself a fresh look. If you want to take them to the office or to a party, then opt for a mix with a dressy blouse, like a tie neck one. Now the options are endless, you just have to open your eyes and look for fresh ways of wearing your basic pieces.
As for today’s outfit, my favorite basics were used in a nautical inspired minimal outfit. Elevated the simple trousers and striped top combo with a white waistcoat, a skinny scarf, furry mules and my all time favorite straw hat. How do you like it? And how are you going to spend the long weekend? Happy Easter everyone! xx
