I know the term "basic" is a bit overused nowadays, but that's because it's just so handy. I used to see photos of people's Pumpkin Spice Lattes and know that it was a trendy thing, but I didn't know exactly what they meant or how to describe them. Then "basic" came along, and the problem was solved. In fact, I've been basic. (I know! ME!) Recently I walked down the street carrying and iced green tea from Starbucks and a Chipotle bag and I just knew I was basic. Was I embarrassed of myself? Yes, but I was happy knowing I had the perfect adjective. I bet you're wondering how this all relates to the lovely young man pictured above? Well, simply, Harry Styles is basic.
I understand your shock. For I did not know Styles was basic until I perused his Instagram. There was all the evidence: cute cups of coffee, a photo of sunglasses on the beach, adorable puppies, Pink Berry.
