After spending your teenage years experimenting with coloured eyeshadows and pop-star inspired ensembles, discovering your personal style normally means you’ve finally learn the one key, basic rule the fashion world lives by – less is more. Go for fit, go for quality, and go for style over trends.
We know the hallmarks of a basic when we see them. They’re usually white or black. They’re simple and unobtrusive. And, in most cases, they can be totally predictable. But, for those willing to rewrite fashion rules, basics can be literally anything: bright tulle skirts included.
For each of the fashion influences and insiders ahead, the term “basic” means a little something different. It’s not just a neutral, safe silhouette that’s bound to complement everything — although we do appreciate that quality in our clothes. It’s more of a statement on its own. And, this item can be found as often in their outfit rotation as skater skirts do in Taylor Swift’s.
