Pop quiz, what is of the most plain and basic piece in your closet? What’s the most versatile? Every considered combining these two must haves into one? Am I totally blowing your mind right now?
Although I have been known to splurge on the occasional floral skirt, I also talk a lot about investment pieces, and about working with the basics. (Remember these posts? Don’t worry a new one is coming for Fall, which is right around the corner by the way… Bananas!). Anyways, some quality basics are crucial to building a killer wardrobe – for both men and women. Today Paris & I teamed up for our second His & Hers post in our twinning tops, although technically this is a his, his & hers post since Waffles, the other man in my life, is crashing.
What’s mine is yo– whoa there, just kidding we’re not at that stage yet! But Paris and I do occasionally share clothes (It pays to have a slender boyfriend, even if it does make you feel a bit self conscious that he can wear your clothes, but not self conscious enough to put down the Mint Chocolate Chip. Awesome, now I’m hungry). The sharing usually benefits me, I steal his sweaters in the winter or wrap his cardigans around my waist in the Spring, and sometimes completely borrow from the boys with total menswear inspired looks, but sometimes P gets something from it too. Today we’re wearing the same .BK shirt (mines a size small, his a medium, but he can wear mine too) but in two different ways. While Paris took a pattern play by pairing with Camo Pants (according to him “Camo pants go with everything I wanna wear”), I kept things classic by pairing with other closet basics: denim and nude pumps!
(insert corny one liner here — Paris, lives for these and thinks he’s so dang witty… and he kind of is… kind of)
