Perhaps quiet or uncomplicated are not terms that come to mind when thinking about fashion, but the tables are always turning in the fashion world, and right now it’s all about elevated basics. Logos and gaudy clichés are a no-go. Instead, keep it classy and opt for clean shapes and lavish fabrics.

The exclusive leather jacket

This goat leather jacket by Mango has been crafted in Barcelona and has the feel and look of a designer piece with a high street price tag. Wear this beauty with everything in your wardrobe. In fact, don’t worry about the rest of your look – this statement piece will do all the talking.

Mango, 100% leather jacket, €199,

The white shirt reworked

The classic white shirt gets a much-needed update. A knit shirt with a bowling neckline that you can wear with your jeans or tailored trousers of your choice. It will even lift a pair of shorts when the warmer weather comes.

The knit dress

Valentine Witmeur Lab is a Belgian brand that creates unique knitwear with carefully curated materials. This dress is pure versatility.

The shirt dress

A shirt dress is a no-frills basic piece that everyone should have in their wardrobe. This shirt dress balances its simple design with a vivid but modern colour. Fam’s ethos is to create clothes that empower women. They are simple but fun and made to last with materials that are sustainable. For example, the Nova dress is 100% tencel, a textile made from eucalyptus wood.

The tasteful bling

There is no luxury without a carefully curated piece of jewellery. This gorgeous set of earrings is crafted in 18-karat yellow gold with a diamond spiral that dangles a Baroque pearl. Baroque pearls are freshwater and known for being unique. No wonder such a timeless yet stylish set of earrings has been designed by none other than Belgian fashionista Sofie Valkiers.
