- Yves Saint Laurent.
As you may have noticed, I prefer simple and versatile pieces which I can wear in many ways and for different occasions. Everything else in an outfit is in the details for me. Of course, there are quite a few exceptions but they come to prove the rule. That is why when I went through some of the recent outfits shown on the blog, I noticed that I have been wearing this basic strapless top quite often. And I bought it from Primark! You can imagine how inexpensive (trying not to say the c.. word) it was! And it has so many advantages.
I believe that in order to build on own style one has to embrace the basics as the title says. It is great when you've got an idea how to wear all the weird trends out there but sometimes the truth is in the foundation itself. No wonder I've been wearing this top almost all the time. Yes, it is easier, it does not require much thinking, it's not risky, it's basic.. But if we have to be honest, the outfits shown above wouldn't have been what they are if it wasn't for the basic white. They would have looked overdone and probably a bit tacky. Moreover, I like to put my statement in an outfit on one piece which I want to stand out most rather than ruining beautiful clothes due to misjudgement. Basic does not necessarily mean plain.
At the end of the day the most important thing is to feel confident and beautiful in your own skin.
