    I’m so over the whole oversized trend. I like the pants/shorts and top combos, but the rest is so shapeless! Ugh. Basic doesn’t have to be boxy. Why hide under a frumpy garment? Tailoring to add some shape could still look simple and basic, but also offer a better fit.

    they are not very colourful; and its not enough to make a garment shapeless for it to be ‘basic.’
