If you know follow me on social media or know me personally, you know the backbone of my wardrobe is basic clothing. Everyone feels confident in different things, and for me I feel the best while wearing a plain tank, jeans and sneakers. And even though this is what I feel good in, it can get “boring” because there is only so much variation you can do with a t-shirt. To spice it up I wear lots of elevated basics.
Elevated basics are essential basic staple pieces in your wardrobe with a twist. Instead of wearing a plain tank, wear a cropped one with a raw hem. Instead of wearing generic jeans, find one with a split hem. It’s the smallest changes in everyday clothes that can really take your styling up a notch.
