Why are wardrobe basics so hard to replace? A ribbed turtleneck, a basic pair of running pants, a good turtleneck. There are so many brands that offer these products that it’s not easy.
I bought my fair share of fast fashion basics, and while they work from the start, there’s no longevity to them. They may fall apart after washing or fail to hold their shape. I spend more money replacing my replacements when I could have bought a higher quality staple instead of continuing the cycle of spending.
I recently tried on two pairs of No-BS pants from american giant, A fashion house based in San Francisco that produces quality and durable wardrobes. Both No-BS Kick Flare and No-BS Pant look like structured pants (aka “hard pants”) while feeling like fashionable, supportive leggings. For someone who already has two C-sections, this support in a pair of leggings (aka “soft pants”) is HUGE. I love No-BS Pant, just because Kick Flare’s ankle-high style isn’t all that I like.
Not all basics are created equal. While they may look the same side-by-side, it’s easy to tell what last season would have been by taking a closer look at the cut and fabric. The No-BS Pant extremely flattering, and I hope that American giant consider extending their offer size so that all can experience this comfort and ease.

Here are some other essential wardrobe designs from American giant Made to fit and last more than a season.
I would pair these with a cardigan and Chelsea boots for a casual look, or with heels and a blazer for a special occasion. The flare kick gives them a more dressy feel.
I like a dress that I can wear all year round. This would be perfect to wear on a chilly MN summer evening, or to wear with rain boots in the spring. In winter, I’ll pair it with tights and Chelsea boots for something more casual; To elevate it, I’ll wear knee-high leather boots and add gold jewelry as accessories.
With high boots coming back in style, these are the perfect pair to pair with your favorite rain boots or cycling shoes. Wear them with a chunky turtleneck for a laid-back look or style them with a fleece jacket for something more upscale.
I will combine these classic sweat drops with High-class Slub turtleneck and a warm pair of boots for errands, or with slippers and a warm sweater to lounge around at home.
Similar to turtlenecks, boat neck dresses can be worn in many different ways. This is the kind of stuff you can carry around all year. In the summer, wear it with denim shorts and sneakers, and in the winter, pair it with your favorite midi skirt and heels. You can never have too many teams to wear to the gym or while getting work done around the house!
A neutral turtleneck is a must-have for any winter wardrobe. It’s perfect to pair with oversized sweaters on colder days, or to wear with skirts or trousers. There are countless ways to wear turtlenecks that fit well, which is why investing in one can never go wrong.
Another great layering piece, the long-sleeve t-shirt is definitely a winter staple. I love that a henley tree makes a t-shirt a little more interesting with the button details. Style it with trousers and a leather jacket for the GNO or with jeans and Blundstones for running errands.
