In the word of fashion, it’s important to be mindful of the basics of style.
When you’re dazzled by incredible fashion, sumptuous prints, feminine detailing, plays in proportion, the mixing, matching and styling of it all, it’s easy to overlook the importance of the basics of style: the black and white, the neutrals, the monochrome, the simple, the staples.
Every woman should have the following in her closet: tank tops in black, white and grey (James Perse or Splendid). A silk or cotton camisole in ivory (Hanro or J.Crew). A plain white t-shirt. The more you love and experiment with fashion, the more important these pieces become. They anchor an outfit that, infused with novelty and indulgence, would otherwise be too much.
