Our closets are divided into a couple of sections – there’s the fancy section with dresses and frills and delicate fabrics, there’s loungewear with sweatpants, shorts, pyjama tops and track pants and such, and then there are the basics with crop tops, t-shirts, tanks- the section you can mix and match, dress up or down, layer it or wear as is. Basics are the secret holy grail of a woman’s wardrobe!
So, let’s take a quick look at some of the must-have basic tops for women that you should always keep handy in your wardrobe to save you in a fashion emergency!
Tank tops have been the frontrunners in basic clothing for years, and they are the definition of comfort and style. You can style tank tops as per the weather and in any way you like. You could stock up on a couple in different styles and colours to wear with different bottoms and jackets. A 1:1 ratio of tanks in neutral and bold colours should be a good start.
The basic crop tops are life saviours when you cannot think of any outfit. You could simply pair a solid black or white crop top with mid-variant blue mom jeans and a pair of sneakers for a quick chic look. If you like colour, you could keep a couple of crop tops in solid or dainty patterns in colours like powder blue, bush red, green, or purple in your closet to pair them with jeans, skirts, trousers, whatever bottoms you prefer.
White shirt outfits are the epitome of basics. There’s no outfit classier than a solid white shirt styled the right way. And the best part? You could never go wrong with styling a white shirt. You could pair a well-fitted shirt with straight black, brown or blue trousers for an elegant look. If you wish to channel a relaxed vibe, opt for an oversized white shirt and wear it with fitted leggings or ankle-length skinny jeans.
Stripes are a pattern that works anyway you want to make them work, thus making them a must-have in your wardrobe. You can pair a black and white striped t-shirt with any pair of jeans and sneakers or strappy flats for an uber-cute look. Striped t-shirts are also great to pair with short skirts and shorts for a fuss-free look.
The most versatile set of clothes you’ll ever own is solid tops, and you should buy them in some basic colours without second thoughts. They can be paired with jeans, trousers, skirts and shorts. You can play around with styles by getting a few in round-neck, v-neck, some long-sleeved with a square neck, or you can go for ones with long sleeves and crop. The choices are innumerable so take your pick! Visit Vero Moda.
