Back to Basics | Summer Essentials

Some summer trends may come and go, but certain basic essentials will always be in vogue. Especially those from your summer side of the wardrobe. As the temperature shoots up, all our favourite tees, comfortable denims, shorts and comfy shoes make a comeback. There will always be that one pair of jeans you will never get enough of, or a crisp white shirt that has been your wardrobe staple since forever. Every girl has got a list of basics that they can't do without. Well, needless to say, I have got mine too. Here are some basic pieces that should make it's way into your wardrobe:

A white crew neck tee
Pair of well fitted Blue Jeans
A crisp white shirt
Pair of pumps (either nude or black. I prefer the former)
A bright coloured bag
Pair of flat sandals in a neutral colour
A statement watch
Pair of sunglasses
A basic denim jacket (In summer - mostly for the cinemas)
A pair of white sneakers

The most basic yet timeless look that I swear by would be the white shirt / tee + blue denim combination. It is the most versatile look that can be amped up with a bold lip, statement eyes or just, some really cool accessories. Plus, you can easily take it from day to night by switching from your sneakers to a pair of pumps. However, I like to take the minimalist route. A statement watch and pair of sunglasses are the only two accessories I need to complete my favourite summer look. For winter, I like to layer this look with a jacket or even a long trench.
