Basics. The most reliable collection in your wardrobe. Your go-to on dress down days and your staple for night outs with the girls. Whatever you’re up to, basics are the foundation to your killer looks.

Don’t think basics have to be boring! They still follow the hottest trends and fit and flatter your curves in all the right places. Build up your capsule for day to night styling and level up your casual wear on off-duty days.

We’ve picked out our favourites that every girl needs.

Co-ords

We’re all looking for that comfy casual outfit you don’t have to put any thought into. Co-ords are the ultimate throw on and go duo. Whether it’s lounging around the house or a day of running errands it’s a no brainer look you can rely on.

We are loving this sage green joggers and sweatshirt co-ord. The hottest colour of the season in the comfiest relaxed style, what’s not to love?! Keep it laid back with chunky trainers and simple hoops to accessorise.

Get more mileage out of this killer set and style separately with a plain tee or leggings.

Cycling Shorts

I know what you’re thinking… cycling shorts? Don’t pack them away just yet, you can still make the most of them. The temperature hasn’t quite dropped yet with the odd warm day popping up. This is where your cycling shorts are your go-to!

Stretchy in fabric with an elasticated waistband, they’ll flatter your curves in all the right places. Casual or dressy, cycling shorts have changed the game when it comes to styling.

Keep it simple on the bottom and add your prints up top to channel athleisure vibes. We love this tie dye sweatshirt to pull the look together. Finish it off with chunky trainers and hoops.

Activewear

Whether you’re hitting the gym or tackling your busy schedule, activewear is your go-to. Combining both fashion and function, it’s got your back 24/7. Style as the co-ord or mix and match.

In the hottest trend of the year, this set brings a whole new vibe to basic. Popping to the shops? Take this duo and style with a zip through hoodie and everyday trainers. Lounging around? Layer with an oversized sweatshirt. It’s that easy!

Basic Tee

The definition of basic right here. Every wardrobe needs them in every colour ever made. Whatever the occasion, you can always rely on a basic tee to pull your look together.

We love a basic tee with not so basic bottoms. Ripped and distressed denim, printed trousers, leather look trousers… the list goes on! You get the picture, it’s the ultimate staple for any look.

Style yours with ripped mom jeans and your go-to trainers for a look made for daytime plans. Round it all off with a headband, a cross body bag and accessorise with jewellery.

Check Shirts

Put a fresh spin on your laid back look with a check shirt. The most versatile style in your wardrobe, you can build look after look. Check print is a basic, but the way they’re being styled isn’t!

We can’t get enough of this batwing check shirt with a dipped hem giving effortless oversized vibes. Match with skinny jeans and chunky trainers by day and take it to your evening plans with leather look trousers and strappy heels.

Skinny Jeans

This is a denim style that’s not going anywhere. There’s never a time when skinny jeans aren’t relevant. They’re your go-to for the weekend favourite ‘jeans and a nice top’ combo and your throw-on-and-go for everyday wear at the office.

The high waist and skinny stretch fit of these KIM jeans makes it clear why they are a timeless favourite. Flattering your curves giving a smooth silhouette, this is a style everyone can get onto.

Two basics are better than one. We’ve styled ours with a simple tee and a distressed denim jacket over the top for a light layer. Hoops amp up your casual look.

Jersey Dresses

If you’re more of a dress kinda gal, don’t panic, we’ve got you covered. For those days you want to make minimal effort with maximum impact, look no further than a jersey dress.

We know you’ll love this style. You’re guaranteed all-day comfort with a super comfortable stretch jersey fabric. Detailing with a hanky hem, opt for a denim jacket over the shoulders and your go-to chunky trainers. Tie the look together with a pair of hoops.
