I'd Skip Every New Trend in Honour of These 5 Basics

As a fashion editor, I get such a thrill discovering fresh trends. That said, when it comes to my personal wardrobe, my offering tends to skew on the simple side with a hefty assortment of basics. When I do go for it a bit more, it’s usually in the form of statement accessories. With all that in mind, I thought I’d bring you a curation of the specific staples I think could be true sartorial heroes in a wardrobe.

If I’m being totally honest, I’d probably skip every new trendy item coming out in honor of the pieces coming your way. I just couldn’t give them up and truly think they are the backbone of a modern wardrobe. They’re all extremely versatile and could be styled in so many different ways.

Keep scrolling to check out my favourite wardrobe basics right now that I think you’ll be into as well. Actually, I bet some are already go-tos for you. If so, there’s a bunch of shopping inspiration below if you want to refresh anything.

A tan or camel sweater is effortlessly chic in my opinion. Whether you tie one around your shoulders or wear it with your favourite jeans, it just feels so elevated.

The classic crew neck also comes in two other love-forever shades. 

The collar brings this sweater straight into 2022. 

Those supersize cuffs makes it look so premium. 

This tasseled beauty comes in sizes XXS-4XL.

Size up for an even slouchier fit. 

A white button-down shirt is classic. Over the last few seasons, the oversized silhouettes have become staples in many wardrobes.

Arket is a go-to for great-quality basics on the high street. 

This one is already oversized so just grab your usual size. 

You can style this mini dress as a super slouchy shirt, too. 

Simple, yet effective. 

That trusty blazer will always be a go-to. I believe it’s one of the most versatile pieces you can own because you can dress it up or down, like with this look featuring jeans and sneakers.

This is everyone on the Who What Wear team’s favourite blazer. 

Love the structured shoulders on this H&M number. 

The ideal cross-seasonal cover-up. 

The nipped in waist is so smart for work. 

A leather iteration still feels classic. 

Yes, blue jeans are always front-runners, but I also love black jeans in a straight-leg or skinny fit because I think they’re quite sleek.

Love the frayed hem. 

A slight crop will show of a great shoe. 

H&M jeans always fit so well considering the price. 

The perfect pair. 

A barrel leg looks so good with ankle boots. 

One more layer I rely on is a loose cardigan to take any simple look to the next level.

So soft. 

This would also look so good over a slip dress. 

Soft hues will still fit into a capsule wardrobe. 

You can’t beat cosy cashmere. 

Such a winner with baggy jeans and kicks.
