A TWIST ON BASICS

24 Apr A TWIST ON BASICS

When you are a die hard lover and wearer of basics, it’s easy to get stuck in a “uniform” – for me, that’s a tee/sweat, jeans and sneakers. And whilst that’s totally fine for the most part, sometimes I like to mix it up a bit without straying too far from my comfort zone (pun intended).

For a laid back, cool, street-style look that’s neither predictable or pricey, think outside the box a little and team t-shirt or sweater dresses (my distressed t-shirt dress is from Tobi) with boots. Friendly tip … if you’re dress is above the knee and you are wearing an over-the-knee boot, keep the boot flat to avoid the whole Pretty Woman situation … I love this pair from Tony Bianco, they are comfortable and super versatile – working equally well with a dress/skirt or over a pair of skinny jeans.

To finish off the look, add layers and textures – in my view the more varied the better. I’m loving this crop denim jacket by Mink Pink with my new Suede Moto Jacket (also from Tobi) for contrasting layers and a comfy twist on basics, that’s anything but x
