Basic classics


I've been looking at my closet lately thinking that I have a love-hate relationship with the majority of my wardrobe. I've got coloured jeans, crop tops, military print, wide legged pants, florals, spikes, and other trendy styles that have been deemed popular over the past few years. Now, I love my clothes because I genuinely like them right now, but at the same time, I kind of hate how not all of these items are timeless. And you can give me the "if it makes you happy..." all you want, but let's face it: When some of these items are out, they are really, really tacky and difficult to look at.

That's why I've been obsessing over basics and classic staple pieces lately. Y'know, things that match pretty much everything. Things that will continue being trendy and versatile in years to come. And things that are pretty spiffy on their own too.

  4. Striped shirts are forever and I think we'll get a few more good years out of the skater skirt trend. But to be honest, I love having a varied and versatile wardrobe. What if there's a costume party?!

  6. On the contrary, I like all these items are timeless. It just depends how you style them. I love that bag though. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯

  7. I love this selection of basics! In my case I do exactly the opposite: sometimes I hate my wardrobe because it lacks of one-season-must-have pieces to jazz up a little more! Do you know what I mean? I guess we both need to find the same balance for different reasons ;)

  9. I agree - as much as I love the fun items now and then, I'm growing more and more inclined towards classic, timeless pieces.

  13. I love your picks. I'm trying to be more about quality than quantity and choosing things that I'll wear for years but it's hard. I definitely think there's room for both the classics and the trendy...
