My basics are my favorite items in my closet. I love classic staples because they’re the easiest to wear. If you look at my pile of white tees, you might think I’m insane. All my tees fit differently and if I really love it, I will have a second one in the same style. I often get questions on where I get my basic tees and the answer is Forever 21 and H&M (you have to get a certain style, trust me). I use to hate Forever 21 and H&M basics and only believed in higher end brands. After trial and error and searching through racks of white shirts, I’ve found my favorite ones.
Forever 21: The Cotton-Blend V-Neck Tee has the perfect slouchy and casual fit. I love pairing this shirt with a pair of skinny jeans and white sneakers. Here’s the trick, instead of just wearing this shirt you would normally, I like to do a French tuck or gather the front in a little knot. The Cotton-Blend Cami is the only camis I wear. If you’ve ever tried the thin strap ones from Forever 21 and hated them, you’re going to love this one. The material for this one is thicker and much more durable. They’re the perfect tight fit and go with any pair of jeans.
H&M: The Jersey Top (ribbed) are my go-to for ribbed tighter fitting shirts. Best part is they’re only $5 so make sure you stock up! I have a backup in white and black.
Pair any of these shirts with denim jeans and you have an effortless cute outfit. Below I have included some of my favorite denims. I love a good boyfriend jean as well as skinny jeans.
