Understanding What Makes a Great Basic Clothing Piece

The definition of a ‘basic’, in terms of personal fashion and style, is an item of clothing that can be worn with a wide variety of different outfit combinations and one that is a true staple of your closet.

Should you be wanting a whole new look, or else are looking for a dynamic and comfortable style to wear to the office, regardless of your motivation several basics are a must!

Basics Allow for Plenty of Styling Options

One of the primary reasons why you should be looking to invest in several key, basic pieces for your closet and, ideally, basics for each season, is that these items will allow you to experiment with much more freedom when styling an outfit.

Essentially, when you get ready in the morning, you are standing in front of the mirror as your own personal stylist, and as such, trying out different combinations of clothes is much easier and more fruitful when the items in your closet are interchangeable.

Basic clothing pieces give you more power and control in creating your signature style, and this is why such items are of supreme style importance.

Basics Can Be Worn Across Seasons

Not only do basic pieces translate seamlessly from day to night and can be worn as part of a casual outfit, as well as in a more formal working setting, but the right basics can also help you to adapt your outfits to the needs of the season.

Basic pieces are all about versatility, meaning you can layer a simple cotton shirt underneath a tailored blazer over chinos for a summer’s evening and wear the same shirt underneath a cashmere sweater on a cold winter’s day.

Don’t Neglect Your Underwear!

Even though nobody in the workplace is (usually) going to see what you are wearing underneath your suit, if you are dedicated to finding basic clothing items that will revamp your closet, then you need to start from the ground up!

Boxer Briefs, which are both stylish and comfortable, in a variety of different colors will not only mean your pants and shorts will fit more smoothly on the contours of your body but will also make you feel ‘put-together’ and ready for the day.

Key Basic Items for Your Closet

The most important basic piece of clothing you need is a T-shirt, either with a V-neck or else a more stylish and ‘hipster-like’ button-down fastening. Such a shirt can be worn across all seasons and can be dressed-up, or dressed-down, to suit.

Next, a neutral turtleneck jumper which is just the right length to sit comfortably over jeans or underneath a chunkier coat or jacket is in order; make sure the material of any jumper you buy is of high-quality and made from a breathable, yet durable, fabric.

Other stand-out necessities to form your collection of basic clothing pieces include a tailored blazer, a pair of light blue, well-fitting jeans and some pure-white, athletic sneakers or shoes.
