Basic Instincts

basic instinct, statement-making basics

When you think of basics, you think…

…boring. But basics needn’t be dull at all. Take for instance these chambray pants, an alternative to jeans that I wear every other day. The cute ankle zipper detail makes them anything but boring. Or this super cool tank. A tank by most definitions is as basic as you can get, but the details on this one make it statement-making. Of course, a statement necklace never hurts either.

Do you have any favorite basics?
