if you haven’t noticed, i’ve been thinking a lot about “the basics” lately. as much as i enjoy playing around with seasonal styles or different accessories, i think every wardrobe needs that foundation of really good, quality basics. a good t-shirt, a comfy sweatshirt. totally necessary and not boring at all. at the beginning of the summer, i picked up two instant classics from one of my favorites, tradlands. the 103 girlfriend t-shirt in sienna and the 116 varsity sweatshirt in shell. i’ve worn both of these for months and thought it was time to share two of my favorite ways to wear them. the first look is a more feminine take with a bit of a ’70s vibe while the second look has a more casual, slightly more boyish vibe that would be perfect for a trip to the beach.
and the best part is that tradlands is dedicated to employing adults who are paid a living wage, work in bright, clean and airy environments, and choose to come to work every day. they visit their production facilities regularly to assure a happy and healthy environment and all of their production partners hold social welfare and production quality to the highest standards. and they use natural fibers that are sustainably produced to be more ecologically responsible. the result is a high quality product with thoughtful construction from beginning to end.
