Being a human adult is hard. You are solely responsible for your well-being. From making sure you replace your toothbrush and underwear regularly to deciding what to eat on a daily basis, the simple things can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. When my mind is racing a million miles per minute and the executive dysfunction kicks in, I find it helpful to have a substantial collection of rotating staples. Finding solid plus-size basics can be a pain, so I’ve rounded up options across categories that I really like or even personally own that’ll make getting dressed on the toughest, hottest days that much simpler.
I have been known to find joy in putting on funky statement pants or wearing a top with a loud vibrant print. However, when your brain fails to compute, you can’t go wrong with one of my favorite combos: a white-button-down, bodysuit, and a pair of jeans or pants. I love basics because they’re a simple, easy way to look put together no matter the temperature. Keep reading for my personally approved list of basics, including my favorite go-to plus-size button-up and a tank top I’m immediately adding to the cart.
