Back to Basics

back to basics

I mentioned my love of layers a couple of weeks ago and the truth is, it all starts with the basics. You can’t have enough long tanks and comfy tees to layer under sweaters, hoodies, vests and winter coats. They work well for travel and are perfect as a pajama top in a pinch too!

From the slouchy and soft to bold and bright, basics last me all season long. Whether for work or play, they are such versatile pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe. Where do I go for my basics? I tend to stick with what works for me–J.Crew, GAP, Banana Republic, Theory, Madewell and Michael Stars.

These six staple brands have been around for a long, long time and that can be attributed to the great basics and classics that fill their racks every season. I’m a raving fan and if you aren’t wearing some of these favorites already, definitely check them out! They know just how to create the comfy classics while keeping you trendy and chic.
