I like when my basics come with a little twist to them – the black shirt from Helmut Lang is a perfect example (link HERE).
The sheer fabric and the draping detail turn it from blah to a stand alone piece – meaning you don’t need much else to look ”styled” and ”together”. A piece like that is a real life saver on days when time is of essence! Wear it with grey skinnies and a pair of Marant inspired boots and you’ll look tres Elin Kling.
Herve Leger dresses are not my cup of tea – I think the Kardashians ruined it for me. Having said that when I stumbled upon this fringed number I couldn’t help but feel a bit tempted. It is still rather overpriced (even though it’s from Outnet, link HERE) but I am now on a lookout for something similar. I would wear it with messy surf curls and red lips: Sexy Surfer Vixen style.
These J Brand jeans (link HERE) fall under the same rule as the shirt example above.
Whilst under the category of basics they are far from your standard pair of black trousers and will look spectacular with very little styling. I would have worn these with a pair of pointy black stilettos and a light blue denim shirt. Happy shopping! XXX
