CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH RALPH LAUREN
We all know the merits of building a capsule wardrobe, but where exactly should we be investing our money? From the perfect Breton tee to everyday knitwear, Ralph Lauren is delivering on all the essentials. The preppy hero knows how to put a modern twist on the classics – here’s why they should be your basics go to…
Smart, grown-up and perfect for all occasions, a black blazer is the ultimate wardrobe essential, so it pays to invest. We love this double-breasted style, with a structured shape and dramatic winged lapels making it a cut above the average.
No repertoire is complete without an oversized cream knit, and we love this button detailed design from Ralph Lauren. Wear with other neutrals for a winter whites vibe.
A smart trench coat needn’t stretch the budget – this military inspired design has all the tropes of the conventional piece, with a reasonable price tag. A forever piece, you’ll rely on this come spring.
Box fresh white not your thing? Look to these decadent sneakers, which still tick the comfort box whilst channelling the velvet trend. The perfect way to dress up a casual denim and knit edit.
The ideal winter piece, the black polo works off-duty (just add luxe sweatpants) or on – it’s the perfect pairing for a midi skirt and heels. Stick to flattering slimline options for versatility.
A cream silk blouse is a must have for all – wear with denim midis for a youthful take or add a grown-up spin in leather midis.
Flat Ankle Boots
A perennial winter favourite, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of black ankle boots. The studded pattern on this Chelsea design adds interest, whilst the simple shape makes it a style you’ll come back to again and again.
Channel the Americana trend in a comfy chambray shirt, teaming with jeans for a double-denim effect and leather for a high-low feel.
This wool-cashmere oversized cardi ticks all the winter dressing boxes. Belt and pair with skinnies for a polished take, or wear over slub tees and sweatpants for cosy seasonal style.
You can never have too many pairs of classic blue skinnies, and if anyone knows what they’re doing when it comes to denim it’s Ralph Lauren. We love this cropped style – a flash of ankle keeps things modern.
No wardrobe is complete without a slightly androgynous, perfectly cut white shirt, and this Ralph Lauren design delivers. We love to juxtapose the look with feminine separates – the perfect addition to your floral midi skirts.
A workwear hero, we’re looking to tapered trousers more and more for polished off-duty style too – perfect with a chunky knit and sneakers.
Fashion girls know a Breton stripe is a wardrobe essential – clash with textures and patterns for a modern taken or add to skinny jeans and pumps for a pulled-together look.
