Deep Dive

As a new season approaches it’s important to take a focused look at basics. Perhaps some are worn out and needs to be replaced or updated,  or perhaps your’re missing something special in your basics collection.

It’s always important to stay on top of your basics as they are the backbone of any wardrobe. It’s easy for those favourite items in your wardrobe to become washed out, stained or perhaps the fit or look just feels a little outdated. The basics in your wardrobe are not to be underestimated – they are the thing that make everything else work.

A basic wardrobe is different for everyone. For some, those ten favourite dresses are all they need and for others it’s a combination of items – the perfect white t-shirt, the perfect jacket and so on. No matter what your basics looks like, it’s important to identify why they are your basics. What do you like about them? Is it the fabric, the fit, the colour, the feel or something else? The more specific you are, the easier it will be in the long run to just add a new item or replace an old one.

One of the most important things when shopping basics are that basics doesn’t have to be basic. It just has to be long lasting, durable and easy to care for. Because that is how you will end up wearing it the most.

So as a new season approaches here are my favourite ten items that are an absolute must-have in any wardrobe.
