The business of basics is a big one and continues to grow with the undeniable influence of gym-to-street on the runway and backs of the most famous, followed and more importantly imitated. The active/sports/easy conundrum was due a name and finally has one thanks to the fashion universe and Athleisure is apparently it. Yeah, athleisure. : \
For any big city kid who grew up on a limited budget, twinning the odd (saved up for) high end piece with sneakers, vintage and affordable street wear, this is nothing new but god love the mainstream, this "Look" is now in its own lane and has a name.
Affordable, on trend but never trendy, Uniqlo continue to create easy to wear basics for him and her occasionally surprising with the odd break out piece that looks far more expensive than it should considering its price. Their Spring 2015 Lookbook is full of function and form in the shape of their Ultra light down jackets and HeatTech amongst other technology. If your still sleeping on The Qlo (I'm calling it The Qlo now... It makes me feel cool and a bit like a bitchy Valley girl) wake up. Get basic (not like that) HERE
