1. A white t-shirt
Dressed up or down, a white t-shirt is one of the most dependable basics you can own. It pairs easily with everything from a sequin miniskirt to jeans and sneakers. We recommend investing in a couple of designs (or two of the same, if you happen to hit upon that rare unicorn). Just think of the cost per wear!
2. A smart pair of kicks
With so many sneakers on the market, it can be difficult to decipher which pair to pick as your everyday go-to. Let us do the hard work for you: the new ECCO ST.1 and ST.1 Lite options are not only stylish, they’re also made from sustainable materials.
From pastels to greys, choose from an array of colours that will instantly elevate any outfit. These athleisure designs are also made to work hard – they include performance-driven materials on select styles, and SHOCK-THRU point for advanced shock absorption.
Best of all? You can rest assured these kicks are comfortable – they feature ECCO’s signature FLUIDFORM™ technology, providing cushioning and flexibility from the couch to the street.
3. The perfect pair of jeans
Much like the white t-shirt, the perfect pair of jeans is an elusive find. This season, opt for high-rise, straight-leg designs with a slightly distressed look. Tuck a structured t-shirt in for street-ready style, or add statement jewellery and a heeled sandal for the ultimate low-maintence, high-style hit.
4. A tailored blazer
If you’re WFH at the moment, workwear may seem a little redundant. But rest assured, you’ll want some smart separates for when you do go back to the office, and nothing screams “professional” more than a structured blazer. Pair yours with a smart pair of pants for work or sling over a LBD for the ultimate Friday night drinks look.
5. A white button-up
When all else fails, a crisp shirt will save the day. Paired with jeans or tucked into a skirt, it’s an easy way to dress up a casual outfit. While its silhouette has been endlessly reinvented over the years, it remains a signature addition to any wardrobe (just ask Gwyneth!).
6. A statement skirt
A statement skirt will carry you easily from day to night, and is appropriate for work and weekends. A midi design is the most versatile length, and can be dressed down with sneakers or slides for a casual weekend brunch, or dressed up with heels for cocktails with the girls (socially distanced, of course).
7. A slip dress
Worn over a t-shirt or on its own as an elegant staple, the humble slip dress provides no shortage of outfit inspo. Best of all, it translates easily from a casual outing to a formal event.
8. A leather jacket
Elevate your outfit by throwing on the ultimate cool-girl staple: a leather jacket. It will instantly give your outfit a street-style edge, making it a versatile investment.
