A Friendship of The Basics.
T-shirt: J Crew
Bag: Michael Kors
This outfit somehow turned out to be a combination of what I consider basic clothing items for myself: a military parka, a striped t-shirt and a lace skirt. Now let's discuss each one of them.
A Military Parka. Why is it a basic? - It can be worn with anything. With jeans it makes a perfect casual outfit. With lace it makes a cool and stylish contrast. With a work outfit it won't let you get bored of that suit. With an evening dress it makes you daring and therefore - interesting, guaranteed to make that perfect first impression at a party.
A Striped T-shirt. Why is it a basic? It CAN be worn with anything. I know I made that speech a couple of posts ago about how I hate those t-shirts. But a striped makes an exception. It is a perfect layering piece. With jeans it makes a little bit dressier casual outfit than a regular t-shirt. With a work suit it keeps you professional but cool and stylish. And just take any skirt, any pants, any shorts, that you don't know what to wear with - just wear them with a striped top! It will ALWAYS work!
A Lace Skirt. Why is it a Basic? It CAN be worn with ANYTHING! Just imagine throwing away that plain black pencil skirt and replacing it with a lace one (pencil, or mini, just whatever suit your body type better). It looks amazing with a dressy button down shirt (and with a non-dressy button-down as well), and it looks great with a sweatshirt - cool and stylish contrast, and it works amazing for a night out when you don't feel like wearing a dress, just pair it with a silk dressy top!
And alltogether these 3 items create a great casual outfit, which once again proves them to be true Basics!
