When I sort through my Saved folder on IG that’s filled with outfit references, a large chunk of the fashion people included happen to live in Paris. I guess it makes sense given the appeal of that Parisian, je ne sais quoi aesthetic. Interestingly, many of the standout ensembles happen to feature elevated basics. I actually also have been living in some of the simple items in question, but some are pieces I’ve been considering and now want to test out.
To showcase all of this further, I rounded up five ensembles below that feature the basics that pique my interest given their chic and highly versatile nature. If you too want to add any of the pieces to your own offering, you’ll also find shopping recommendations to suit a variety of styles.
