Additional inspiration for Basics

By Susan | July 30, 2014


Last week I shared with you some inspiration from The Designer Manual and how you can treat any pattern like a block and bend it, twist it, hack it to make it your style. Today I’m back with some extra images of inspiration that would all work perfectly with the Racer Back Singlet pattern.

2 – a painterly fabric is on trend and adds a pop of colour to your look. Image via Friend in Fashion

3 – The always stylish Jessica Alba pairs a singlet with coloured skinnies and a blazer, I could’ve filled an entire inspiration magazine with cool photos of her rocking singlets.

I cannot find the correct image link for this one, if anyone knows can they let me know so I can update?
