Basically, Let’s go Back to Basics

We always want to know the style secrets of our favourite celebs and fashion icons. What’s one of the first questions we’d ask them? ‘What’s a staple in your wardrobe?’ or ‘what piece of clothing could you not live without?’. Whilst there’s usually some fabrication or mention to that beloved sequin cocktail dress or croc patent heels, or even some more honest, simple answers; my comfy loafers or boyfriend jeans, let’s not forget to go back to basics.


At Seaside Boutique we have a whole range of basics that go perfectly with our other pieces and no doubt a lot of things already hanging in your wardrobe! How often do you pick a hanger out of your closet and think ‘I’d love to wear this!’ then retract as you realise whatever are you going to pair with it? Enter basics.


Back to Basics


As we state on our ‘Basics’ page our basics are our relaxed line of ‘easygoing essentials’. We stock simple tees to maxi dresses. Take our Angie Racerback Cami in Red for example. The racerback giving a simple twist to the cami and drawing in on that prominent sports luxe trend. This is a perfect wardrobe addition for everyone.


Simple Bold Colors




You can easily pull this on when you want to wear a bold pattern on the bottom – I’m thinking something like our Printed Maxi Skirt or Boho Palazzo Pants. Simple bold colours are great to wear on top when the bottom half of your getup is making a statement. What’s more a great excuse to buy another new pair of shoes in a bold red to match – heels count as basics too right?


Tapestry and Patchwork Bags 



And what about all those tapestry and patchwork bags you’re going to be buying this season? Shop ours in our Accessories range and check out an earlier blog post on the must-haves here. It’s all about boho again this summer and these statement patchwork and crochet bags need a simple canvas outfit to be thrown over. Our variety of swing dresses are perfect for this. We have a range of colours including grey, teal and blue so you can find something that works with your personal palette. Or picture our simple Kiara Maxi Dress in a gorgeous dusty plum colour with our multi Color Tapestry Tote. Perfect for casual summer days looking effortlessly cool.


Basically, basics offer a base so that you can play with your patterns and accessories. They are the best way to experiment with your style and you will always have something to pair your current pieces with! Shop our Basics now!
