There has been a lot of talk lately about dressing with joy, and I really agree with that feeling. After over a year of pretty much locked up and wearing sweatpants, it’s only natural that we find ourselves drawn to pops of bright color and fun patterns to reappear as social butterflies for dinner, brunches, and the bar. But we shouldn’t overlook the basics, which are still the staple of our wardrobes – joy can be found among many faces. We know from our own information at Who What Wear that basics like white T-shirts, black dresses and tops sell best, arguably the bread and butter of our summer wardrobes.
I reached out to five of my favorite people who want to follow IG, who are known for their simpler wardrobes. Everyone has their own style, but the key is that they all have an eye for what makes a really great basic. Here everyone has told me what they have on their wish-list for the coming season. Whether it’s a great shorts suit or just a cut off T-shirt, all of the following items can be described in one word: chic. So if minimalism is your thing or you just want some inspiration on how to update your basics, keep scrolling.
