As we ease into the New Year, we thought we'd keep things simple & stylish. We've picked 10 elevated basics perfect for right now. Here's why we love them & how to wear them:
1. THE TOP WITH A TWIST
Don't be afraid of a little print or pop of colour in 2022. The idea behind the new trend ' Joyful Dressing' is quite simple - you use amazing colours, prints or unexpected silhouettes to quite literally bring you join. This top does exactly that. Throw it over jeans, tailored shorts, or track pants with sneakers. If you want to create an edgy evening look, try tucking it in to a high waisted midi skirt or wide leg trousers with pumps.
2. THE CHUNKY KNIT
This summer knit ticks all our boxes! The loose weave is 100% cotton, meaning it gives you coverage without being too warm. The combo of navy & white is timeless - with the stripes and hint of red giving it a nautical feel. Plus, it's versatile! The loose silhouette allows you to layer it over your favourite linen shirt for a preppy look, or else you can style as is. Simply add jeans or shorts, and you're good to go.
3. THE SIMPLE SNEAKER
The sneaker is here to stay. If you haven't yet jumped on board the sneaker train, now is the time. This sleek, navy leather has been inspired from the original tennis sneaker. It is sporty and smart, all at once. The beauty of a classic style such as this is that you can pair it back with almost anything in your wardrobe. Plus, we're all guilty of having far too much navy in our wardrobe...so now is the time to finish off that monochromatic look with a matching shoe!
4. THE WHITE SHIRT
Can you ever have too many white shirts? (The answer is no, btw). Nothing adds a sophisticated and put-together feel to an outfit like a crisp white shirt. This new season style features a classic, slim tailored in a luxurious, 100% organic cotton. This piece is further elevated with the subtle beaded detailing at the collar. Nail that effortlessly elegant look by tucking this into fresh blue jeans with a belt, or wear loosely over cigarette pants and under a blazer for a modern take on corporate styling.
5. THE BLUE JEAN
An iconic piece for so many reasons, the blue jean is on high rotation in any stylish wardrobe. Dress her up, down and everything in between. This particular style boasts a high rise fit, slim straight leg and best of all...a super lightweight feel that gives you a great shape. These jeans are honestly so comfortable they feel like a second skin and the mid blue wash is the perfect trans-seasonal colour.
6. THE BOSS BLAZER
Turn heads for all the right reasons with our all time favourite black blazer. There's something magical about the cut of this piece. It provides you with a gorgeous hourglass figure, accentuating your waist and buttoning perfectly across the bust. The asymmetric line is both elongating and slimming. Did we mention it has stretch? Yep, the perfect blazer does it exist. You can style with pants, a skirt, a dress or gosh..even your track pants for those pesky zoom meetings!
7. THE ALMOST TROUSER
For a pant that has all the trimmings of a smart work trouser yet feels like you're wearing your favourite leggings- look no further. We are so excited for you to add these jersey knit trousers to your wardrobe. Thanks to the ponte style fabric, you will have all the comfort and stretch of a knit pant yet enjoy the flattering effect of a more structured style. Wear this from the office to the park and all the way back to your home office!
8. THE COOL-GIRL BELT
We don't want to hear 'I'm not a belt person' ever again. Please and thank you! You simply haven't met the right belt, that's all. This handmade leather belt is a crowd favourite, for obvious reasons, and is a great place to start. It injects an instant hit of that 'cool girl' factor as soon as you put it on. Make your go-to uniform of jeans and a nice top PoP with this embellished belt. The slate grey colour-way also allows you to pair it back so easily in your wardrobe.
9. THE NEW CARDI
When done correctly, layering is a sure-fire way to add interest and a fashion-forward feel to your outfit. This cotton knit long line cardigan is a real life chameleon- it somehow matches everything! The beautiful, fluid drape of this cardi will dress up your activewear, dress down your more structured dresses or simply provide that extra layer you need for our cool Summer evenings. This is a must-have basic that you will live in!
10. THE EASY PANT
What's simple, stylish and oh-so-comfortable? That's right - these wide leg white pants! If you're not ready to let go of your heavenly, relaxed holiday wardrobe...just don't! Wear these cotton pants with espadrilles and a simple linen button up, or if you want to give them a sporty twist, go with sneakers and an edgy tee. These pants are so fabulous you'll want to wear them all the way through to Autumn! Just pair them back with a cosy knit and denim jacket and you can. Like we said....Easy!
