  • Basic tees
  • Basic denim

Choose your Grae wardrobe essentials based on colour and style.


Your everyday basics should include plain tees in black and white. Easy to match with most outfits, basic white and black plain tees are THE base layer to your knit jumpers, cardigans and leisurewear tops and jackets.

If your day needs brightening, a selection of basic t-shirts in bold seasonal colours or pretty prints will always add a cheerful pop of colour to a basic T-shirt-and-jeans outfit.


The essence of basic clothing is simplicity and comfort. Of course your basic wardrobe essentials will always include jeans in your favourite fits, but also casual shorts for lazy summer days and pull-on denim skirts that rate highly for comfort.

Basic long sleeve tops are the foundation to your layers, while short sleeve tops and ¾ sleeve basic tops are must-haves too.


When it comes to reliable wardrobe staples, our new season basic women’s tops will have you covered for everyday, effortless styling all year long. From classic crew necks and scoop necks to turtlenecks and high neck tops, stock up on a collection of long sleeve knit tops in solid colours that you can thrown on with a pair of jeans, joggers or skirts for day-to-day style.

A short sleeve blouse or relaxed tee provides more coverage than a basic tank top or crop top and can see you through warm days tucked into knee length cotton shorts or midi skirts. Get creative with a feminine flutter sleeve or puff sleeve and simple jewellery for the day or elevate your look with an animal print blouse and purse for going out in the evening.

Every woman needs a white and black basic top in her wardrobe. Not only do these timeless pieces make sophisticated workwear when paired with full-length pants and a blazer, they layer beautifully under jackets and are the perfect base for creating a modern, minimalist look.


The beauty of basics is that they’re so easy to mix and match with each other or with your other favourite wardrobe pieces! With block colours and minimal prints, it’s a breeze to put outfits together that go from casual everyday to smart and sophisticated.

Neutrals like black, white and grey are essentials as they will go with almost anything. Muted tones, like plum and navy, warm up winter outfits while pretty pastels like lilac and rose will add a soft touch of colour to any seasonal outfit. Craving more colour? Go for a bold pink or vibrant blue paired with your favourite fit jeans or denim shorts.

Our new in print tops let you have all the fun with patterns while still keeping things sweet and simple. Let a cute polka dot or classic stripe do the talking with plain pants, shorts and skirts accessorised with minimal jewellery and a pair of flats.


Another perk of basic women’s tops is that they’re ideal for layering. Relaxed fit short and long sleeve tops are roomy enough to layer over sleeveless tops, singlets and camis in between seasons and under hoodies, vests, jumpers and cardigans in the winter. Longline tops look smart styled over a pair of figure-hugging leggings while shorter tops pair well with high waist pants and a wide leg.

While they go it alone perfectly well, basics are also the unsung heroes - the supporting actors if you like - to upscaled outfits. Follow these tips to style your basics:

  1. Eye catching jackets are accented by plain tees, jeans or pants and sophisticated accessories.
  2. A basic denim skirt lets gorgeous shirts and tops be the star of the show, perfectly complemented by tan boots or sandals and a matching bag.
  3. And basic clothing of all types gives off a relaxed and effortless vibe when worn with crisp white sneakers or natural slides.
  4. For simple yet sophisticated style, wear basic clothing with a beautiful fabric like linen or add a colourful scarf!
