There's a reason why basics are known as the foundation of anyone's wardrobe; they quite literally serve as the base layer for one's outfits, may it be a tank top underneath a sheer top or a turtleneck layered under an office blazer


Stocking up (or hoarding) these inner garments below shall make dressing up easier in your 30s: 

1. Camisole

You'll never not need a black, white, or nude camisole in your life. Often used as a layering piece, camis are undergarments that will come in handy on numerous occasions: when you want to unbutton a blouse for a laid-back look, when your revealing, sheer top needs a little more coverage, or even when you want to dress down a bulky blazer.



TRY: Uniqlo Women Airism Camisole, P590, available in all Uniqlo stores 

2. Sleeveless tank top

With the tropical weather, tank tops are a staple for any Pinay.

Update your sandos with trendy styles like a sleek, straight-cut tank top with thinner straps that you can wear even for more formal occasions—just dress it up with polished bottoms like cigarette pants or a midi skirt. 

3. Bodysuit

Bodysuits can be a bit of a hassle to wear (especially once you hit the bathroom!) but there's a lot to love about this basic piece. Because it's stretched out when worn, the body-hugging top is essentially wrinkle-free so it instantly bestows a neat, sleek appearance. Pair it with your skinny jeans for your next girl's night out or tailored, high-waist pants for the office. 



TRY: The__Edit Daphne Tank Bodysuit, P699.30 (from P999), available online 

4. Turtleneck 

Long-sleeved turtlenecks are not only best worn when traveling to cooler places, but even in this tropical climate of ours. Stretchy, lightweight turtlenecks will keep you toasty enough to brave cold offices yet they're still breathable to keep you cool while walking outside. Wear it underneath a blazer for a polished, work look or wear it on its own and simply complete your OOTD with printed culottes for a sophisticated yet non-boring OOTD. 


5.  Tube top 

Sometimes, the visible thick straps of your tank top can look unflattering underneath a classy, sheer blouse. Reach for a tube top for a more seamless innerwear. They look extra-sleek underneath a blazer, too! 


TRY: Cotton On Everyday Tube Top, P599, available online
