You know those items that everyone seems to have?
No, I don’t mean a particular “type” of shoe (ex: over the knee boots), or “type” of clothing (ex: blanket scarf). What I’m referring to are very specific items, like the quilted vest from J.Crew, Hunter rain boots, or cocoon sweaters from Aritzia.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t own (or want) many of these popular wardrobe staples. Certain items are popular for a reason, and many have been recently referred to as brands that “basic” people love…myself included. Even though I self-define as basic, I often wonder how to style these items without looking exactly the same as everyone else.
The truth is, most of us put our own spin on styling these sorts of wardrobe staples. Isn’t this why we love reading blogs, browsing our Instagram feeds and Pinning our favourite looks along the way? One of the great advantages we have today is being able to pull inspiration from so many sources.
