basic, as a tier

People think being basic is all Uggs, pumpkin spice lattes, and fall flannel. But it’s so much more. It’s a tier. Let’s break it down cosmoquiz style.

Found this on Adobe Stock. This girl will lead the basics in the near future.
Just throw a preset on it before posting.

You’re barely basic. Like truly, your behavior is acceptable. You’re doing great sweetie and don’t let anyone make you feel bad about your basic choices.

7-20 points

You are solidly basic. You partake in the trifecta of basicness: Bravo, instagram thottery, and celebrity culture. You probably live for karaoke & have a 90s, 2000s, or dance mix Spotify playlist to listen to while getting ready. People love your basicness bc it’s authentic & makes you fucking happy. You go Glen Coco.
