If you were to ask us what three basic items we keep in our closet all year round every year, our answer would be 1 – jeans, 2 – black heels and 3 – a striped tee.  Because unlike some other fashion pieces, these three items are always on trend.  Plus, they’re super easy to mix and match with everything else in your wardrobe.    

We know you’ve got jeans and we know you’ve got heels, but if you don’t have a striped tee yet, we definitely recommend heading to Katies.  They have so many signature stripe tees, tops, knits and shirts to choose from, all of which we know you’ll love.  This particular Stripe Panel Top we picked up was just $39.95! Yep. And considering you can style it so many different ways, it’s an even bigger bargain on a cost per wear basis. Brilliant!

While we went in to Katies on a striped top mission, we actually ended up walking out with a whole lot more (story of our lives – ha ha!)  Previously, Katies had always been a go-to for staples and basics, but when we headed in the other week we found that they have a very impressive range to choose from.  With stylish layering pieces, cute jackets and super comfy pants, Katies' new MOVE range has just about everything you could ask for.  The fact that it’s so affordable is just an added bonus!   Now, Katies one of the first places we go when we’re looking to put together timeless, always-on-trend outfits that won’t break the bank.

So getting back to that tee, jeans and heels. As far as pulling together an outfit, It doesn't get much easier than that. Throw on a jacket (we are loving faux-fur at the moment) and you're good to go.

Another thing we love about Katies fashion is that all of it is super versatile.  It just works so well with other pieces in our closet, which makes mixing and matching a total breeze.   For example, we love teaming the Stripe Panel Top from Katies with our SWIISH Westwood Flip Skirt and a pair of high-rise ankle boots to create a fun and flirty look. 

Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing more of our favourite looks. We'd love to know what you think and how you would style the MOVE range.
