Basic Training

By Jennifer Wells
In Feature, Style

Stocking your closet with clean and classic looks this season starts with the basics.

 

When thinking about key wardrobe updates this season, the Boy Scouts’ motto “be prepared” should be your guiding principle—and shopping the basics your first order of business. When choosing the building blocks of your wardrobe, such as a crisp white button-down, the perfect pair of denim or a classic sport coat, always opt for quality over quantity. Splurge on elevated basics with sturdy construction, clean lines and natural fabrics while choosing designs that offer a tailored, but comfortable fit. Although your current take on the classics will no doubt be a far cry from your original scouting vest with badges, your tireless hunt for quality wardrobe staples will serve you well—scout’s honor.
