What To Shop

The 9 Things We’re Wearing On Repeat (And Think You Would Too)

These clothes were born to be worn.

I’m a compulsive online shopper, which means I’m usually broke (one word: Afterpay).

Despite this, I’ve realised I wear the same 20% of my wardrobe on rotation (and I’m not going to die alone).

Basically, Carrie Bradshaw was wrong, and putting your money in your wardrobe where you can ‘see’ it isn’t always a great investment plan. E.g. my $300 dollar jacket has only been out twice (someone show it a good time PLS), which means the cost per wear so far is $150. But my tees and jeans worn twice a week end up costing next to nada #wardrobenomics.

‘Comfort’ is the key to making good purchases – if you feel uncomfortable (for whatever reason) you’ll never wear it. This isn’t a free pass to live in yoga pants, yo. A designer logo t-shirt like Carmen’s (featured below) is easy but elevated, and it will only get better with age.

I also love jumpsuits and overalls because you can layer other pieces under them (like a collared shirt or plain white tee). Knowing how to wear and re-wear different pieces you own is the secret to great style

TEE-M GUCCI

Carmen: "I plan to hold on to this one for my daughters - it's only going to get better! I don't usually go for obviously branded things but the retro feel of this Gucci logo makes it feel low-key."

JUMPIN' FOR JOY

Lainy: "My go-to for day parties, night parties... all the parties. I wear it to work over a tee and when I'm tired or hungover it makes me feel a million dollars."

EARN YOUR STRIPES

Carmen: "This ain't your average stripey T-shirt. The high neck dresses it up a bit, but the oversized fit keeps it casual. I'm all about balance!"

FEELIN' WRAPPED

Lainy: "Every girl should own a wrap dress - it's the most universally flattering style on all body types. They're easy to throw on and work with all shoes and jackets. Whether they're cheap or $penny, you're sure to be wrapped with the number of comments (or wolf whistles?) you get."

TEAM TWO-TONE

Carmen: Just when I thought I couldn't possibly need another pair of jeans, these showed up! You can throw on anything and the two-tone detail adds a touch of cool to any outfit.
