Back to Basics: Kanye x APC

Living in LA, I’ve learned all about the excess side of fashion.  Not gonna lie, I enjoy indulging a little bit now and then in the flash, but I definitely prefer the more pared down look when it comes to my own style.

Sometimes all you need to look and feel great is a proper pair of jeans and the perfect tee, and A.P.C.’s latest collection collaboration with Kanye West definitely hit the spot.  I love that this simple selection of three tees, two pairs of jeans and three pullover hoodies keeps the message that basic is chic.

I want my skinny jeans to have a good amount of stretch for optimal comfort, and I tend to buy slightly oversized tees so I can play with the shape a little more. Tucking a t-shirt into your pants or having its neckline sit on your shoulder slightly off-kilter gives your whole look a little more personality.  Also, it’s a great base for statement accessories!

Which basic staples are must haves in your closet? What do you think about A.P.C.’s collaboration with Kanye?  Clearly, it’s been a success- it’s completely sold out already!  Don’t worry though- rumor has it that APC is in the midst of restocking, so you just might be able to get your hands on these basics after all.
