Summer sixteen is still in full swing but there’s no denying that fall is just around the corner. With school and other back-to-normal activities in the near future, we’re stocking up on basics for our wardrobes to ensure we can get dressed easily (and fashionable!) every day. The less hassle, the better. We’ve got our top sites to stock up on the best of fall basics!
This one might be obvious but H&M is still one of our absolute favorite go-to places to find basics. The online store has way more than you’ll find in-store and is much easier to navigate sans the crowds and noise. Also, the site has insane sales, we’re talking basics for less than $10 so it’s worth browsing to stock up on tees and tanks for. There is also talk that they’ll be stocking premium eyewear like Tom Ford and Oliver Peoples sunglasses in the future, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
We’re kind of obsessed with Uniqlo. The Japanese casual wear designer is sort of like the H&M of Tokyo – except with that cool utilitarian Japanese edge. With plenty of functional yet stylish pieces at bargain prices and cool collaborations with streetwear designers and pop culture, it’s no wonder we’ve fallen in love with Uniqlo.
Levis is a tried and true American classic and our top choice for denim essentials. From jean jackets to boyfriend jeans to skinnies and everything in between, no one does it better. There’s a good selection of trendier options alongside timeless staples as well as a nice array of perfectly slouchy tees and warm knit sweaters.
For luxurious staples, look no further than Equipment. The French brand is effortlessly chic true to French style. We adore their cashmere basics which are a must-have for every fashionista – black cashmere turtlenecks and nude cashmere cardigans galore. They also do the perfect printed dress that can go from day to night and have collaborations with the fashion elite, such as their current collection with the one and only Kate Moss.
The lesser known sister store to Spanish giant Zara houses just as many affordable gems. Mango is full of affordable basics and trendier items – perfect for some autumn shopping perusing. You can get your basics from A to Z here with everything from tees, tanks, skirts, pants, purses, and shoes. It’s a one-stop shop for the season.
