I think interesting details on an otherwise basic piece are one of the number one things I look for in a piece of new clothing. Take this striped short-sleeve top, for instance, in the front it looks like a basic t-shirt. However, the button detail and v-cut back add interesting details to take it to the next level.
Maybe that's why I end up with so many pieces of clothing that don't work with a lot of other things (I am planning on doing a YouTube video or something of some of my more ridiculous pieces of clothing). That said, I think this top is a real winner, the special details make the top interesting yet its basic enough that I can wear it all the time. It's the perfect part of my "uniform" so to speak for Spring. A lightweight jacket, my trusty rainboots (you never know), comfortable jeans (discussed in more detail here), and a simple striped top.
Anyways, it's Thursday which means Friday is just around the corner. I REALLY can't wait for this weekend because vacation is right around the corner! And I'm thinking of changing over my wardrobe for Summer? Will I jinx it if I do?
What do you think? Do you prefer more basic pieces or items of clothing that have extra-elements? What's your Spring uniform?
