Consider this: Â Why do we spend the least on basics–the things that we wear the most? Â If we're going to subject ourselves to something every day, isn't that where we should really be investing? Â Well, if you're looking for luxe basics, look no further than Pencey Standard.
A gorgeous maxi skirt that hugs in all the right places, this piece is a great building block for a comfy-chic wardrobe. Â It also features a lace-up detail that adds a unique and subtly-sexy vibe. Â Pair this with a slinky tank top, vintagey denim jacket, and summery fedora, and you've got yourself an effortless look that totally embodies “cool-girl” style.
Pencey has mastered the difficult science of draping–evidenced by the gorgeous Sobo top. Â I also love that the grey version has contrasting piping around the neck and sleeves. Â Another subtle detail that really makes this not-so-basic basic tee stand apart from the crowd.
My final favorite piece is the football tank. Â I have one of these myself, and it's seriously the most perfect way to throw together an outfit that screams effortless chic. Â It's also a way to ooze sex appeal–who doesn't love a little side-boob? Â A girlie take on a manly basic, this top is perfect in that strangely sexy equation: oversized menswear + something tight and feminine = totally irresistible.
