Fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev: basic clothing should be comfortable and have a simple cut
Russian and French fashion historian, art critic and theater artist Alexander Vasiliev named five main rules for choosing basic clothes in Telegram.
The expert pointed out that, first of all, when buying these wardrobe items, one should focus on lifestyle and goals. He also advised to give preference to classic and versatile colors. “If you want to add prints, also go for classic options like plaid, stripes, polka dots, houndstooth, millefleur [пестрый цветочный или растительный принт] and so on,” said the author of the post.
At the same time, he pointed out that clothing should be comfortable and have a simple cut and good quality. “The idea of the base is to serve its owner for at least a few seasons (…) It’s better to save on trendy, seasonal things if there is a choice,” the specialist concluded.
