Hey lovelies! So I’ve been shopping pretty heavily on Amazon lately (have to put that Prime membership to good use, after all), and I made an interesting discovery: Amazon is the plug for basic items! I know what you may be thinking, Amazon for clothes?? Bye sis. But I’m here to put you on! Read on to hear more about my best (and most worn) basic finds, and how to pick some up for yourself! All of these can be found in my Amazon store (linked below). **Also please note that while these are affiliate links, I purchased the products with my own money. If you use these links, I will receive a small percentage of the sale. Thanks!**
First, let’s talk about these turtlenecks. Everybody knows I love a good turtleneck, as I wear them nonstop during chillier times. It’s easy to find them for cheap (I was buying them for $10 each at Forever21 for years), but quality is everything, and has become more important to me over time. I bought a few from Amazon right before leaving for NYFW, and I fell in love! They have just the right weight/thickness for layering and are extremely versatile. Given that the weather is still so unpredictable, use that Prime shipping to get a few for yourself before it really warms up!
I also picked up some biker shorts, as they are currently trending for spring/summer 2019. You can buy them pretty much anywhere now (including some designer pairs for ridiculous prices), but I like to start small with trendy pieces and not invest too much money to start. With these, you can get a pack of 3 pairs for less than $25! That’s a little over $8 per pair, and they are amazing quality! I’ve worn these mainly as workout clothes so far, and in my Ready to Wear videos on IG (as it’s still too cold to show skin). I can’t wait to wear them with my blazers when it gets warm.
I needed some layering pieces for this transitional weather that didn’t involve turtlenecks, and these bodysuits are everything! I love that they are long sleeved, and I prefer the bodysuit style because it’s much easier to tuck into jeans and skirts than a sweater or T-shirt. These are also the perfect weight and thickness for layering! My favorite way to style them is under my blazers, as they make for quick and easy tops.
Find all these items at my Amazon store here! Pick some goodies up for yourself, and you’ll be hooked too. See you later, lovelies!
