5 Basics You Need in Your Wardrobe (That Make Getting Dressed a Breeze)


When I come across an amazing basics label, I just have have to share. Recently I was introduced to Munich-based THE SEPT, whose aim is to create a perfect collection of everyday essentials. I for one can never have enough basics, so I have put together a list of my top 5 pieces that with a little seasonal refresh can make your wardrobe feel brand new.

1. The Cashmere/Wool Knit
A classic style which is a must-have for layering and also makes a great travel companion. A sleek grey crew is sophisticated, chic and practical. Need I say more?

2. The Go-Everywhere Scarf
This is an incredibly versatile piece which not only makes for a cozy travel wrap, but looks just as good thrown over your sofa. A staple to invest in, this grey number with a slight fringe ensures you'll be stylish straight off the plane.

3. The Cotton Pullover
This is a cozy, easy style to throw on for more casual occasions - and it works back equally well with heels or sneakers depending on your look. This season I have opted for this dusty pink colour which brightens up a wintery day and looks perfect paired with blue denim. The zipper detail also adds a little modern touch.

4. The Perfectly Cut T-Shirt
I favour a slim crew neck, and then a more boyfriend style in white, black and grey. You can never have too many tees so try to give these a refresh every 6 months. A fresh bright, white tee can instantly pull an outfit together.

5. The Draped Tee
Considering I live in t-shirts, it made sense to invest in a slight dressier version. I have a few different cuts ranging from a classic, boxy crew to a slightly draped style as pictured above. This is a win with denim for day or a black skirt for an evening out.
