Nine times out of ten, when an item makes it into my basket, it sits in the ‘classic’ category rather than the ‘trendy’ one. As much as I enjoy absorbing the changing fashion currents each season, my personal wardrobe mostly consists of timeless buys that I know will stand the test of time.
And while, in theory, this should limit my spending, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), many of my favourite brands are masters in creating classic pieces. Think Arket, COS, Reformation and Everlane—these are just a few of the labels that frequently grace my inbox with high-quality, trend-defying designs. Everything from thick wool jumpers and hardwearing denim to elevated loungewear (yes, I still work from home). If I can’t picture the piece working in at least five outfits, it’s a pass.
Over the last couple of weeks, a select few items have repeatedly caught my eye. From perhaps *the* most versatile knitwear to the shoe set to be my go-to for 2023, scroll on to see the wardrobe staples I’ve fallen hard for lately. I bet you will too.
