I don’t know who coined the phrase, “fewer nicer things,” but I wholeheartedly agree, particularly when it comes to basics.
Basics are the foundation of any wardrobe. They are the pieces we grab again and again, and they provide the backdrop for all the other more exciting pieces we wear.
I also find basics to be where I live when life feels complicated or overwhelming. Sometimes it is fun to put energy towards planing cute outfits, but other times I just need the comforting familiarity of a great pair of jeans, a well-fitting button-down, and my favorite sneakers. When life requires my full attention, the basics free me from worry regarding how I present myself.
Today I am sharing a round-up of my favorite basics. These are more than just examples of basics. These are the actual pieces that I wear often and have found to be worth the price. These basics have served me well over the long haul, and I love the way they contribute to my happy closet.
