How To Wear 7 Highlights From Our New Basics Range

20 March 2022

By Kristen Daly

 

Minor players of our wardrobe once upon a time, elevated basics are now its foundation. We can’t go without the bike shorts we layer with, the bralette we live in, the bodysuit we wear on repeat.

This is why we’ve created our new go-to basics range, Base by Showpo. Designed to steer our style into the new season, this trend-driven collection of basic tops, bottoms, dresses and one-pieces ticks all the boxes on our must-have staple checklist.

Minimal, sleek and clean-cut, they’re made from ultra wearable materials, including luxe jersey, lightweight fleece and soft ribbed fabrics, and in a palette of muted tones, from camel and white to sage and sand.

Whether we’re toning down our look or turning up the drama, they're a joy to wear. Explore some of our personal highlights from the collection below and some tips for how to style them.

 

The Trend Bralette

Unique, understated and bang on trend, the Adanica Bralette is our new fave. Wear it with the matching Thisbe Bike Short, or contrast the sand version with baby-blue boyfriend jeans.

The Must-Have Bike Shorts

I think we can all agree that bike shorts are the bomb. Pair the Thisbe Bike Short in chic khaki with a matching racerback top, or dial down the gym vibes by adding a blazer or tee.

The Classic Bralette

For a more classic bralette silhouette, opt for the Adleigh. Style it with the matching Dariko Leggings, or take it out to brunch paired with a sleek-and-chic multicoloured midi skirt.
