Whether we’re talking about shirts, tops, cardigans, dresses, tights or jeans, these pieces are timeless, transeasonal and really bring an outfit together. They can be used to build an outfit on or provide the perfect counterpart to extravagant styles.
There’s nothing basic about these plus size must-haves.
The perfect long sleeve top
NA basic long sleeve top is the perfect all-rounder. Whether you style it under a pinafore dress, tuck it into cigarette pants or wear it over your favourite jeans: it’s an absolute must-have. To ensure wearability and comfort, go for a high quality fabric like cashmere, merino wool, or simply natural cotton. During the summer months, a simple but luscious ponte jersey top would elevate any look. You’ll find the perfect outfit-completer in our selection of basic tops by Vento Maro, Zizzi or Zhenzi.
A well-fitting pair of trousers is an absolute must-have when it comes to off-duty basics. It can be effortlessly combined with a cashmere jumper for a laid-back look, or styled with a silk shirt and opulent jewellery for a more elegant feel. Whether made from stretch denim, wool blends or soft jersey following a narrow, straight or wide leg, the perfect pair of trousers is an invaluable investment.

Ranging from sporty to sleek, no outfit is finished without the right coat or jacket to match.

Every plus size fashionista should invest in a softshell jacket: stylish, practical and perfect for outdoor activities. The beautiful waterproof sporty jackets on our edit would offer all-round protection from the elements, with zero compromise on fashion. A cool denim jacket is another must-have when it comes to outerwear basics. A breeze to style, it is the most effortless way to add a hint of edge in your look.
