Shop our Blue Illusion Essential Range for basic tees, cotton pants, and linen shirts. Often called ‘staples’ or ‘classics’, women’s essentials are totally necessary for every wardrobe. You’ll love these pared-back-yet-never-boring basics.
Far from risqué, such basics are deemed ‘essentials’ for a reason. A good wardrobe should feature women’s essentials not only just for days at home or for something quick and easy to throw on but because they allow for standout pieces to truly ‘pop’. It’s all about balance.
Foundational for any wardrobe and timeless enough to withstand transient trends, basics are always an investment. While these may be sans-fuss pieces, they’re still fabulous in their own right. You’ll adore our range for each piece's quality and the outfit possibilities they open up for you. Shop our collection of clothing essentials, and take heed of our styling tips for basic tees, shirts, and pants.
How to Style Basic Tees
Having a varieté of basic tees is a good move, as they’re all-purpose and can be effortlessly elevated. Wearing basic tees under winter outfits is wise for warmth, but they can be worn in any kind of weather. Pair a basic white tee with virtually any pair of pants, either tucked in at the front or loose, whichever you find to be more flattering. A plain white tee is a classic with a good pair of jeans. Throw on a cotton shirt and a pair of ballet flats or Rollie shoes, and you’ll be ready for wherever the day takes you.
For a très chic Parisian ‘it girl’ look, opt for a basic long-sleeve tee, perhaps with nautical stripes or another pattern, and wear it with your favourite basic black pants. For a sleek-yet-understated look created with minimal effort, wear a plain short-sleeve or basic long-sleeve tee under a blazer. This is an especially stylish ensemble with some skinny or slim-fitting jeans and a pair of ankle boots or slingbacks.
How to style Basic Pants
Another of our clothing essentials, a pair of basic black pants deserves a spot in every woman’s wardrobe. This is because of the versatility they provide for different styles and outfits. Black pants work with just about any top, tee, shirt, or blouse, and, like a great pair of our exclusive bengajeans, they can be teamed with almost any jacket or coat. A simple but outstanding outfit could consist of black basic pants and your favourite statement top.
Whether they’re wide-legged, skinny, ¾ length, or slim-leg pants in black cotton, denim, or vegan leather, a pair of black basic pants goes a long way. Step out with confidence in an outfit that strikes the balance of subtle basics teamed with the right amount of louder pieces and accessories.
Basics never fail to streamline your wardrobe, helping each outfit make a little more sense. Shop our range today!
