To pick a basic might seem easy but there is a list of criteria it has to meet. So before you add another white t-shirt to your shopping bag, make sure you check our list.
We are used to super low, mass market prices of our basics. We wear low quality cotton or polyester tees because we know that as soon as they wear out, we will buy a new one. How about that we sum up the price of five t-shirts from a high-street brand and invest into something durable? If you’re ready for this sustainable challenge, make sure you pay attention to the materials. Pima cotton is the best quality cotton on the market and comes with a higher price tag. Silk is yet another choice but if you prefer a synthetic, go for viscose. It does not wash out so easily and it offers a very nice feel.
With such a simple piece of clothing as a t-shirt, a strap top or a dress, the cut is everything. Look for details such as quality finishings, the lining, the neckline and the sleeves. Ask yourself if you prefer a fitted or an oversized silhouette? A basic is here to make you feel stylish and comfy at the same time. Make sure that you spend money on an item that will reconcile these two aspects.
Every basics seems practical but there is also a questions of what you really need. Buying another white shirt will surely come easily, however, we recommend that you ask yourself what is it that your wardrobe is really missing? To buy sustainably means to buy consciously. Review all your basics and think of it as if you were making an investment. If you approach shopping in this way, pure satisfaction is guaranteed.
