THE BASIC EDIT

By Rhiannon Taylor, May 2016


If we could only take three things in our carry on, these would be it. The basics of all basics, we wouldn't sweat if our checked luggage was lost because these three things would have us covered. These pieces have mastered understated chic so well, we'd live in them if we could.

Jac + Jack Brooklyn Tee.

THE PERFECT TEE

Tucked in to jeans or paired with a leather skirt, the V-neck tee is always in our carry-on luggage. Our favourite is from luxe brand Jac + Jack; an Australian label that has mastered the art of unassuming luxury. Their slubbed Brooklyn Tee is 100% linen and features a slight twisted seam for an updated look. We're tempted to get them in every shade. $120 AUD [available here]


J BRAND Luxe Sateen jean.

THE SKINNY BLACK JEAN

Want the comfort of a jean but need to up the style stakes? We love a classic black jean and the Luxe Sateen version from J BRAND does not dissappoint. The slight sheen takes it from day to night with ease and the fabric is slightly thicker than most skinny jeans keeping legs looking toned and the butt perky. $188 USD [available here]


VEJA Esplar Sneaker.

THE UNDERSTATED SNEAKER

There are so many fresh kicks on the market today and choice is incredibly personal. We love the range french label VEJA has to offer for both men and women. Even more so, they're transparent with their manufacturing and materials. They source fair trade workers and use wild rubber from the Amazonian Forest. We're particularly fond of the Esplar style in silver for giving a little bit of jazz. 99,00 € [available here]
