Let’s get back to the basics, shall we? No matter how pleasing for the eye is to have a closet, bursting full of one-off, vintage finds, speaking from my own experience, it usually is impossible to build outfits just from them because nothing actually goes. That’s why it is so important to create a collection of go-to, good quality basics. Having these outfit building-blocks means less struggle dressing up in the morning and fewer spendings all together.
The third yet equally important item in the shopping guide of The Basic Series is the glory pair of blue denim trousers. Denim is definitely worthwhile investing if you wear it as much as I do. It is always a lifesaver when you are lost in your closet and for all the head-to-toe black outfit lovers, a pair of blue denim is something that I, personally, consider as neutral, so it helps a lot when you’re feeling too black. Denim always feels fresh somehow, no matter how often do you choose to wear it. It’s comfy, versatile, and just like my other favourite things in life (like wine, French women and black and white movies) it just gets better with age. However, it doesn’t necessarily need to be very expensive, as quite a few high street brands offer jeans that are really good quality. I am a huge fan of Lindex denim myself. They don’t have a huge selection of different cuts, but if you find the right fit for you there, you will purchase it again and again, I promise.
Here’s my pick of the best denim pieces available online now, with the cost varying from as little as 35 euros to a maximum of 230 euros.
