Wardrobe Essentials: My Favorite Basics

Today, I’d love to share a few of my favorite basics, including the best thong underwear, black leggings and grey t-shirt. These are the things I find myself recommending to my friends the most. They make me wish I was Oprah so I could buy one of each for everyone.

The Best Thong: Victoria’s Secret The Lacie

The Lacie is my favorite underwear because it’s so comfortable (especially for a thong!) and there are no unsightly lines underneath skinny jeans or workout clothes. The lace sits flat against your skin without any weird pinching so it feels like you’re not wearing anything at all.

The Best Black Leggings: Zella Live In Leggings

After trying a few different brands, I’ve found that Zella leggings are still the best. They’re great for both working out (no sheerness to worry about) and lounging (I’ll wear mine tucked into boots with a chambray). I did a review on Zella capris last year but the long version are nice for winter weather. They’re a lot like Lululemon’s popular Wunder Unders but for half the price! Sizing tip: I’d recommend sizing down as they tend to run large.

The Best Grey T-Shirt: Truly Madly Deeply Scoopneck Slouch Tee

I’ve had this t-shirt for a few years now, and it’s still on heavy rotation in my closet. It’s soft and drapey which makes it feel more like a blouse than a plain tee. It also comes in white (if you’re more of a white tee kinda gal).

What are your favorite basics?
