What is a basic?
Basic does not mean boring. You should look at your basics and be able to think of a variety of ways to style the piece. A basic is something that is timeless to YOU and something you will keep in your closet forever. Something that embodies your personal style & makes you feel confident every time you put it on.
Printed or plain, whatever your preference. Multiple colors or a pattern can add the ability to mix and match with more layers.
A classic skinny or an elevated boyfriend style, distressed or not, something you feel comfortable slipping into every day.
This is a key piece. Something you can layer with to elevate any look.
A long classic or fun statement piece, whatever feels timeless to you.

A denim alternative is your go-to when you want to spice up your everyday look, but still feels like a basic to you.
