best of basics

1. PANTS. Leather leggings and denim are a must. At least for me. Sometimes real leather can be expensive but there are quite a few faux ones on the market that both looks like leather and feels great. Check out these from Topshop. Then denim, black and blue. Cheap Monday makes great budget denim. But sometimes you might wanna invest in a designer pair, I like these from Mother, they also come in a nice black shade.
2. BASIC T-SHIRTS. I mostly wear black and grey but a white one is also very usable. These two comes from Monki. T by Alexander Wang also makes great ones.
3. COATS AND JACKETS. The Parisians inspire me here. All you really need is a nice little coat/blazer and a perfect leather jacket. I love this coat/blazer from Mango, it looks very Emmanuelle. And come on, the price is amazing. And the leather jacket, slightly brown in a oversize mode, looks just perfect. I really love the dark brown color. From Topshop. Then again you might also need something warmer, at least here in Sweden. Check out this one for inspiration, real nice but expensive.
4. KNITWEAR. This season hottest knit is probably the off white one, thanks to Balmain. Wear it slightly loos and tucked in to a black pair of denim. And don't forget to belt up! The simplest combo but really beautiful! The white knit above is from Monki.
5. BAGS. When you wear a lot of basics it's worth to invest in the accessories, the bags. I'm still dreaming about this Stella McCartney bag. Also that leopard tote from Alexander Wang would not be wrong. Leopard... not so basic one might think but this one will be very usable with the basics, pop up things a bit.
6. JEWELRY. Accessorize simple. A black belt goes with anything. Keep it plain like this one. I'm still in to simple jewelry, the simplest styles last longer. These golden rings that come in a whole bunch are nice (they also come in silver). Wear just one or several at a time. I would never turn down this, but this one is a nicer alternative, at least for the wallet.
7. OK, SHOES. I guess one can never have too many, right? For essentials a pair of walkable ankle boots are a must. Then a pair of suede boots would look real nice to the denim and knit! I say go for both!
8. THE SHIRTS. Tucked in or out and to layer with. Nice. A white classic and a denim one. I love these two, the white from Monki and the patched denim one from J Brand.
