We believe that, when it comes to basics, there's no such thing as 'outdated'. Whether it's a white tee, perfect pair of jeans or tailored blazer, they are the foundation of our wardrobes, and when bought correctly, should stand the test of time. However, it is inevitable that, every now and then, certain pieces will need replacing, and it can be surprisingly hard to find new versions of old faithfuls. That's where we come in.
We've been having a think about the 'new basics' that have caught our eye this season. To the undiscerning eye they don't differ wildly to the originals, but whether it's the shape of a hemline or sleeve-length, there are certain motifs that are cropping up again and again. Of course, we're not saying you should be throwing out your classic cuts, but if you happen to be looking for pieces to replace worn-out faves, then we've put together a list of the new styles to keep an eye out for.
