Top-Akira | Denim-Zara | Heels-Forever Unique | Bag-Alexander Wang

We've all heard how important basics are to having an optimal closet, but how many of us actually use those tips? Personally, I never cared for plain tees or neutral heels until I realized how big of a difference they made. I decided to try pairing my new Forever Unique heels with this cute sliced up white tee, and I think they did the job, I never realized how simplicity can sometimes be the best choice.

With the right basics, you'll never run out of things to wear! This is something I swear by. To make shopping for basics easier, I've listed my top 10 for you below.
  1. Plain Cotton T-shirts (variety of colors)
  2. Black Scoop Neck Tee
  3. White Button Down
  4. Plain Black Pumps
  5. Light Wash Denim (plain and distressed)
  6. Black Skinny Jeans
  7. Single Strap Sandals
  8. Black Blazer
  9. Leather Jacket
  10. Nude Sandals (like these ones from Forever Unique!)
Just looking at this list, I can come up with a minimum of 10 variations for potential outfits. With the right basics, all you'll ever need is pop of color or the incorporation of a printed piece to get the perfect outfit!
