Investing in the right basics is a great way to have a wardrobe where everything goes with anything. Of course, it's great to have statement jackets or boots, but clashing them with other statement colours and patterns sometimes just doesn't work. Over the Winter months i've been building up my winter basics in the form of high neck jumpers, various cuts of jeans, and plenty of black jackets.

The newest addition to my every-day basics collection are these super cute black leggings from Chic Me. I basically live in leggings when working in the office every day, so a great twist to make my day to day look a little more exciting is the adorable lace up detailing to the side of these pants. I've seen tons of similar designs on my favourite bloggers in the form of a suede skirt or mini dress, so I took inspiration from the likes of Kayleigh Johnson and the total babe Sarah Ashcroft when online shopping for these beauties.
I kept the rest of the outfit pretty casual with one of my fave denim jackets from Zaful, a basic high neck long sleeve tee and a pair of faux fur lined boots to keep my feet extra toasty! Stay tuned for part two of my 'Shopping for Basics with Chic Me' where i'll be wearing a pretty amazing lace-up item that'll go with everything in your wardrobe too!
