Back To Basics: Wardrobe Staples You Need Now
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that more time at home calls for quality wardrobe staples. We’re talking ultra-comfortable basics like super-soft cotton tees, cozy shorts and joggers, and wear-everywhere sweatshirts. The key to looking loungewear-chic and not like you forgot to get dressed is to invest in crisp, well-made pieces that look chic without being restrictive.
Thankfully, streetwear brands are delivering, with comfortable classics that sport just enough of an edge. We’ve rounded up our favorites, below.
Soft, Simple T-Shirts
We here at Complex SHOP are big fans of a good graphic tee. That said, a casual solid is the perfect layering piece or worn alone with joggers, jeans, or slacks. They’re also suitable for all audiences if an unexpected Zoom call arises. Stock up on both short and long sleeves for the upcoming shift in seasons.
Very Versatile Sweatshirts
A solid crew-neck sweatshirt is one of the most versatile pieces you can own. Wear it like a sweater or layered over a button-down for a dressed-up date. Of course, a classic hoodie never fails either, and is a great stand-in for a jacket during this in-between season.
Shorts And Joggers
Chances are, your sweatpants got a lot of extra mileage this past year. To keep comfy without looking like you just rolled out of bed, crisp, fitted joggers and sweatshorts are key. Invest in a few pairs because, let’s be real, we’ll be wearing them practically every day of the week.
