The most overlooked items in anyone’s wardrobe are basics.
From camisoles and tees to yoga pants, all the things that are worn the most get the least consideration. It’s time to change all that and add some pizzazz to everyday dressing.
First, consider fit and comfort. You can never know just from trying on, so buy one item, wash it and wear it. If it is what you’ve been looking for, don’t wait, buy more.
Second, there’s a wonderful palette of colors out there, so look for something other than black and brown.
Finally, consider layering a bright camisole under a basic tee.
Don’t hesitate to mix and match. Basics are the building blocks of any good wardrobe.
