Basic Tees: Anything But Basic!

We are OBSESSED with basic tees right now! Nothing beats a perfect staple piece, right?? Every woman needs staples in her wardrobe she can always rely on to fit well no matter how many times it’s washed, to be soft, and to be not only versatile enough to be worn with or under anything, but also a beautiful blank canvas on its own.

We LOVE the basic tees from Fifteen Twenty because they come in so many different styles–V-necks, scoop-necks, ribbed, smooth, long-sleeve, short-sleeve, cold-shoulder, poncho style and with various hems…they’re just about the most versatile tees ever! They are made from beautiful high-quality fabric, so they wash beautifully and always keep their shape. And did we mention how SOFT they are?? You won’t want to take them off!

Groceries Apparel is a new eco-conscious tee-shirt line that we found the perfect fitted tee AND they have so many other great styles to choose from.  They are handmade with love, light and good vibes in California with organic materials that aren’t treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or GMO’s. These toxins are harmful for farmers and workers and US as consumers and our entire wildlife eco-systems.   We just received the basic crew and basic V-neck tees in 4 colors and a tank, but have other styles coming in soon!

Groceries Apparel tees are made with Love!


We love throwing a basic Fifteen Twenty or Groceries Apparel tee under anything and everything–vests, jackets, button-ups…even sleeveless dresses that you’re dying to wear but usually have to save for warm weather! As much as we like to use these basic tees as layering pieces, we also LOVE to wear them by themselves and get creative with the blank canvas! Pair a basic tee with distressed skinny jeans and funky jewelry for a laid-back, casual-chic look! Or pull out that denim skirt and a pair of wedges for a fun Summertime look. Be daring and pair a basic tee with pants that have a bright, bold pattern. The possibilities really are endless!

Basic tees are the unsung heroes of our wardrobes–they do not need the spotlight, but are much better at letting other pieces shine in a way that they perhaps could not have done without the perfect layering piece. Or perhaps that bold, colorful necklace would not sparkle quite as brightly if it were not up against a basic and solid–but no less beautiful–backdrop. As they say, sometimes we have to “get back to the basics” to build a solid foundation, and basic tees are the perfect way to build your wardrobe and spark creativity! So…basic tees are really anything but basic–just like your story. We hope that we’ve inspired you to “get back to the basics” and get creative!
