Ever heard of the “basic girl” outfit? It’s pretty much today’s look, accompanied by a PSL, something from PINK by Victoria’s Secret and possible a Michael Kors watch. UGGs are a staple piece of the basic outfit, and the opinion on them is incredibly divided.
Some people love UGGs, others feel nauseous just looking at them. I’m one of those people that wears the boots because they’re comfortable, but will never wear one of those fake pairs that fold at the back and make your feet look lopsided. Similarly, I only really like the classic UGG style, I’m not too keen on knitted boots or UGG wedges. I bought this short chocolate pair in 2015, and they’re still keeping my feet warm, even if the effects of wear and tear are starting to show.
When it comes to my style, specifically casual looks, I like to opt for comfort. Enter: the basic girl outfit. When I was younger, I used to avoid leggings, UGGs and jumpers at all costs out of the fear of appearing basic, but now, in 2017, I could not possibly care less.
I want to feel comfy when it’s cold out, and prefer to keep my feet warm, so UGGs and knits it is!
Today I’m cosying up in this Zaful knitted sweater, which I’ve managed to wear for two days in a row without getting makeup on – so yay to me! The jumper has this lace-up neckline, and the lace is also knitted which makes the jumper even more comfortable to wear. The knitted number is super soft, and also has cuffed sleeves to create a really pretty sleeve shape.
Three cheers for being basic!
