SHOPPING FOR STYLISH BASICS

My go-to shop for basic items is Everlane as I love their basic elegant and casual fashion. Their style is a cross between Scandinavian simplicity and French chic. The quality of their clothing is good (they work with the best factories around the world) yet their designs are affordable (as they do not work with resellers). My Everlane favorites that I own are the cotton U neck tee (very soft), the City Anorak (simple but very stylish) and the Stretch Ponte Skinny pants (the perfect black skinny pants). On my wishlist is this beautiful off-white sweater. Everlane only ships within the US and to Canada and Australia but I use a forwarding shipping service (Shipito).
