Building a functional and stylish wardrobe that includes all of the staple pieces and some novelty niche stuff is definitely easier said than done. This is especially true if you’re no longer in your 20’s and quality and comfort is what you prioritize the most now. However, you also don’t want to break the bank or compromise the way you express yourself through what you wear. Well, although all this may seem like asking for too much, there are certain brands that consider this wish list their to-do list. Fun fact: Even Kate Middleton mixes in affordable, accessible outfits and looks absolutely gorgeous in them. So, without further ado, let’s see which brands can have your back.
Alternative Apparel is a dream come true for every bargain hunter. Comfy sweaters, sweats, loungewear and accessories such as scarfs and socks are the products this brand is mostly focused on. Another interesting detail about Alternative Apparel is the fact that they use recycled materials whenever possible and as opposed to fast fashion brands, they ensure the workers receive fair pay and enjoy safe working conditions.
Café Latté is a brand that is known for being able to offer their customers the power of three: style, comforts and great value for money. The cafe latte clothing line is fun and fashionable and consists of casual tops, jeans, jackets and dresses that can meet a plethora of different fashion needs. Versatility is a key feature of their range, as the designers work hard to come up with key garments that can work well with many other pieces from your wardrobe. What’s more, they also pay special attention to creating affordable, yet unique pieces for women over 40.
Ganni is a Swedish brand which has managed to have the fashion industry buzzing about it lately. Regardless of the fact that the brand generally caters to a high-end clientele, the pieces they offer are surprisingly affordable. This should be your go-to brand if you feel like you need to add some bold designs to your rather plain wardrobe. Their graphic tee shirts, for instance, can be the perfect addition to an otherwise monotonous summer wardrobe.
Kotn is a brand known for their soft and remarkably breathable Egyptian cotton. Much like Alternative Apparel, they are dedicated to making all favourite wardrobe staples in a fair and safe environment. They collaborate directly with farmers and that’s what makes them able to offer us affordable basics made of cotton. Their most loved pieces are the classic white tees or nostalgic 90s sweatshirts which are crafted with quality in mind which means they are quite durable.
