If jeans and a cotton tee is your go-to outfit most days, and you don’t have the time to think beyond that, we get it – but even within those parameters there’s still room for a style evolution. Try switching your blue skinnies to a new shape like boyfriend or mom jeans and consider a new colour – vibrant white is a great option for breathing fresh life into your outfits.
Cardigans have seen their style capital rocket in recent years, particularly V-neck designs displaying a bare décolletage or just a hint of lacy camisole. Wear yours with high-waisted jeans or pants and a ‘French tuck’ – that half-in, half-out look adds an air of laid-back cool to any outfit.
For obvious reasons, loungewear made a resurgence last year, but while you might be happy to see the back of your novelty onesie and misshapen leggings once lockdown life is over, the hooded sweater is very much here to stay. Give it a 2021 update by swapping your jeans for smart pants, such as this wide-leg pair. Another way to restyle your basics is with new and eye-catching colour combinations, such as this bubble-gum-pink-and-chilli-red get-up.
