My Beloved Basics

Tee, Gap; Dree Jeans, Topshop

I'm an absolute sucker for a good basic. 

And, as the morning's get even darker and colder it's the basics that I rely upon each morning when I'm too cold to try on three options before heading out the door. 

I've had a little roster of beloved basics that I've been working through all year long and I thought that now they're pretty tired and tested I'd share the best of the best basics with you guys because, I'm pretty basic.

The Best White Tee

When it comes to the classic white tee I don't feel like I ask for much but I find very, very few stores on the high street that can give me exactly what I want. To say that the perfect, effortless white tee is hard to come by would be a major understatement. 

All I look for is a tee that isn't see through, one that's thick enough not to flash my bra to the world: one that's soft, and slightly oversized - I don't like a tee that sticks to me. I like a boyfriend fit as I find a looser arm to be the most flattering of styles. 

Because of this I've worked my way through pretty much the entire high street's offering of tees for women and have concluded that you literally have to borrow from the boys to get the perfect one. The perf one for me is Gap's essential short sleeve tee. Available in almost every colour under the sun it's 100% cotton and under £10 - you can thank me later!

The Best Jeans

I think I might dedicate a whole post to my most beloved pair of jeans as I'm sure you'll all know from the many, many posts featuring them how much I love my light wash M&S jeans. So, for now I'll share my favourite mid-wash style - the Dree.

Jeans, in my opinion, should accentuate all your best bits - whether that's your waist, bum or legs (or all if you're lucky!) and the Dree does this for me. I picked up this pair about four months ago and haven't really stopped wearing them since as not only do they look great with loafers they work so well with an ankle boot too. The Dress is comfy, washes well and is oh-so reasonably priced!

If you've got a go-to basic I should know about tweet me @sarahrcharrison :)
