Style tips: 6 OOTDs that test-drive the new wave of basics



Gone are the days when basic wear would mean sporting your run-of-the-mill tank top and denim jeans. The 21st century has become accustomed to artisanal styling, letting individuality to be expressed freely (especially in clothes!). We welcome you to the new age of self-expression right down to the basics!

Get creative with your casual garb by adorning your own taste of accents with denim and classic basic tops from the brand that is all about sartorial dressing – H&M.


Radical Rebel

Switch up your casual bottoms with a lightly frayed denim mini-skirt for that added throwback flare. For those old souls, tie on a printed scarf around your neck to add character and color to a plain tee. Slip on some sneaker sides and classic aviators and you’re ready to hit the streets!


Body Language

Add your own personality with a white billowy off-shoulder that’s unlike any other. Match it with denim shorts with flirty scallop lining and loud accessories to tie it all together. Add maroon tassel earrings and silver heeled slides to make a statement on an all-basic ensemble.


Damsel of Denim

As 90s fashion visits us once more, maximize the denim-on-denim trend and mix a classic faded denim jacket with equally distressed shorts. Mix in a basic black tee and the crowd-favorite white sneaker to make your OOTD comfy all throughout.


Game, Set, Swatch

Denim jeans are the newest canvas for any fashion girl. Wide leg pants give a vintage feel to a basic ensemble, made more exciting with different swatches of denim as pantleg details. Trade up your usual basic tank with a flowy too that you can easily take from day to night.


Mellow Yellow

Opt for bright accessories to louden a basic outfit. Easy on the distressed trend on your denim jeans and go for trousers with lightly ripped hem detail. Hold on to a tangerine clutch bag, 80’s vintage aviators, and comfy slides for taking on the town!


Beaming Baby

Casual dressing should never mean lazy or boring! Beam with pride with a different take on a white tee by opting for a white linen cropped top paired with dark denim scallop shorts. Have some fun accessorizing, starting with statement sunnies, black tassel earrings, and stark white sneakers.
