Feel Comfy and Sexy with DAFTBIRD

Daftbird is one of my favorite lines for basics. They are designed with comfort and style in mind, while also trying to imitate the feeling of wearing your boyfriend's favorite tees. I love the idea behind the brand because nothing else is as comfy as wearing your boyfriend's over-sized tee! Daftbird really identifies with women's wants in basic pieces and delivers perfectly soft and curve-fitting pieces to make you feel comfortable and sexy at the same time. Vanessa Hudgens, as well as other celebs, are big fans of the brand. She was spotted running errands in a long soft maxi and looking amazing! Add fun accessories to any of these pieces for a day or night look, they're so versatile and a must-have for your summer wardrobe!

Refreshed Basics

Basic tees and tanks are an essential for every girl’s wardrobe, however, sometimes it’s nice to have the comfort of a tee while staying stylish and trendy at the same time. There are a lot of basic styles being reinvented for a more stylish and edgy feel. Uneven hems a.k.a. Hi-Low Tops, are a huge trend today, they are soft and comfy but very fashion forward. Hooded tees are a great alternative to a hood in the upcoming warmer months. They give you the same comfort of a hoodie and not only are the light and airy, they look cuter for a spring or summer casual look. The exposed shoulder tees are a more modern twist on a basic t-shirt. I’m a huge fan of these because they are just as comfortable as any basic tee, but appear edgier and more fashion forward. Open back or cut-out tops are great for a sexier casual look or for an edgy grunge look. And finally, over-sized tees are great right now, with the right fabrics they can still appear feminine even if they are two or three sizes too big for your body. They are super cute cropped, with a Hi-low hem, or even worn as a dress. All of these tops are so versatile and can work well with pretty much any bottoms, try Citizens of Humanity flare jeans, Siwy skinny jeans or cut off shorts, or even dressed up with a Pleasure Doing Business skirt. Let us know which updated basic is your style!

Get Back To Basics

Sometimes trends can be overwhelming. When you find yourself flinging clothes out of the closet on Saturday night, freaking over what to wear: Have no fear! Take a deep breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.  When all else fails you can always stick to basics to have a clean, polished and classic outfit.  Just look at Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & the City, who took an ordinary men’s button down shirt and vamped it up with heels and sexiness.  Who knew a basic white button down could take you from work to play? Carrie Bradshaw did!  This summer, invest in replacing your little black dress with a little white one.  It’s a piece that will carry you through the season and will be that go-to dress you want to wear when all else fails.  So next time you’re having a panic attack infront of the closet remember: pick out basic pieces and vamp them up with accessories, fun shoes a colorful clutch.
