When it comes to shopping the high street, less is most definitely more. It is an approach worth applying not only to the number of items you buy, but also to the style of the pieces themselves. Thankfully, the “elevated basic” has become a buzz phrase over the last year or so, with high street and designer brands alike stripping back experimental silhouettes in favour of well-made staples.
This shift has been particularly notable among the more affordable brands, and it has been refreshing to see high-street stalwarts offering up higher price point collections with a focus on quality. This season, one brand in particular has stood out in this department: Massimo Dutti. Historically overshadowed by its retail sibling, Zara, the brand has started to branch out from the confines of workwear, to deliver more style savvy – but no less versatile – designs. Wardrobe basics that are anything but boring.
We’re talking perfectly tailored black trousers, stylish second-skin tops, polished flats and clean-lined leather jackets. Essentially, everything you need to create a winning, year-round capsule wardrobe. So, if Massimo Dutti had dropped off your radar, consider checking it out this spring – you won’t regret it.
Below, Vogue rounds the best elevated basics from Massimo Dutti’s spring collection.
