Where The SL Fashion Team Buy Their Basics

Quality wardrobe basics are the foundation of good style. If you could do with some fresh inspiration, who better to take it from than the SL fashion team? From t-shirts to leggings, knitwear to oxford shirts, here are the names and places they rely on for theirs.

“Ninety per cent is my go-to for classic, everyday tees. Made from 100% organic cotton, they are cut to a boyish fit to give a more boxy, relaxed shape without the excess fabric.” Lu Hough, Style Director

Oxford Shirts

“I've become irrationally attached to oxford shirts in the last year or so. Worn with jeans, silk trousers, leathers, skirts... they go with everything and, so long as they're perfectly oversized, they can make everything look that bit cooler. I love Arket's versions – I always undo the cuffs for a lived-in look.”
Charlotte Collins, Senior Fashion Editor & Head Broadcaster


“A great pair of black leggings is a must – contrary to what you might think, it’s easy to wear them outside the gym. My personal favourite is Lululemon’s Wunder Under style – the fit is just perfect, sucking you in just the right amount without feeling restrictive. The fabric is so comfortable and completely opaque.”
Amrit Mann, Editorial Assistant


“I’ve long been an advocate of & Other Stories for high-street knitwear, but if you’re looking for something a bit special, I can’t recommend American Vintage enough. I recently bought one of their cardigans ahead of autumn – it’s incredibly soft, chunky but not heavy, and looks great on its own or layered. They’re well worth a look.”
Polly Sayer, Junior Fashion Editor

Tank Tops

“I’ll wax lyrical about Sundarbay’s racer tanks to anyone who will listen – sure, they’re a little more expensive than the average, but the quality totally justifies the price. The fabric is thick and tight, and sucks you in comfortably while also covering your modesty if you choose to go bra-free. I love them so much, I’ve got them in three colours.”
