This week I’m loving simple, easy to wear pieces. Much like your basics, easy to wear pieces can be thrown on in any situation and you’ve got a stylish outfit ready to walk out the door. Easy to wear pieces are very much statement items that you can pair back with your basics. Whether it’s a printed maxi skirt, striped dress or silk cami for the girls or bright shoes or printed tee for the guys, these pieces will save you from those ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ moments time and time again.
These Thrills skorts provide the comfort of a short with the elegance of a skirt. Featuring a rose printed pattern against a dark backdrop they are simple enough for day yet popping enough at night. Change shoes from flat boots to a chunky heel and tough accessories for multiple looks. This will become your go-to piece from summer into autumn!
Thrills Scorpion Floral Loose Short- Acid Black
This men’s Stussy tee is sure to get you noticed wherever you go. Featuring a bright pattern and loose fit wear with your black jeans for a night out or over your boardies. Just be sure to keep the bottom half basic and let the tee do all the talking.
Stussy Oil Slick Tee- Multi
Summer means long days and hot nights, so your collection of tees should be at its’ best right about now. With tees to take you from your day at the beach and then on to a sunset dinner, SurfStitch has everything you’ll need this Summer. It’s always time for tees, so check out our two top picks this week.
Sport the latest trend…
Sporting one of the biggest trends of the season in colour and looking great with walkshorts and Converse footwear, this tee is perfect for whatever your day has in store.
Thrills Athletic Basic Tee – Black Natural.
Make it versatile…
The beauty of a plain black tee is the amount of things you can mix and match them with – from vests to jackets and all sorts of walkshorts. Make sure you have a well-fitting black tee in your wardrobe, as it’ll be one of the most versatile pieces you’ll own!
AS Colour Paper Tee – Black.
