So you’ve finally cleaned and organized your wardrobe and realize now that you actually have no good basics (if not – read this post now). It’s no wonder why you can’t throw a quick-but-chic outfit together run out the door! So where do you go to find those timeless, well-made basics that round out your wardrobe? Well, look no further than Bon. Here are 5 reasons why you should look to Bon for your wardrobe basics.
// Reason #1 //
Every wardrobe needs good basics
In my humble opinion, a well-balanced wardrobe is built upon really good basics. When you have those quality essentials it is easier to put together a great outfit. In fact, few outfits beat a pair of blue jeans and a striped tee. Top that off with a red lip, a pair of black aviators and that ‘done-but-undone’ hair, and you’ve got a timeless, chic look. If you are finding that your wardrobe is full of clothes but you never have anything to wear, perhaps you are missing the fundamental basics.
// Reason #2 //
It’s French-inspired (read: Tres Bien)
Bon is literally French for ‘good‘ and who isn’t a bit of a sucker for the French style? They practically invented the basics (don’t fact check that). Bon is all about luxury everyday pieces which are casual, effortless and elegant. Their design aesthetic is minimal and the colors of the collections center around white, black and grey (my favorite) and are complemented with bespoke seasonal prints and, every now and again, a splash of color for those who so desire it. So you are definitely going to find your perfect white tee, that stylish ‘off duty’ striped tee and the ever necessary, black tee – all in completely different styles too!
// Reason #3 //
quality basics made sustainably
Basics get worn to death. Therefore, they need to be able to stand the test of time and endless love. This means, flick your fast fashion options and invest in the pieces that will last. There are no cheap quality fabrics here. Bon uses GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton jersey for all of their tees and sweaters and make all their garments in Australia. Their belief is that when you start with a good basic, you can’t help but create an unf*ckupable outfit. The brand uses GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton jersey for all of their tees and sweaters and use lycra made from recycled PET bottles for their active leggings. Booyah.
// Reason #4 //
They are ethically made
Buying Bon means you are supporting a brand that does not exploit cheap labor and terrible manufacturing practices. Bon makes all of their garments ethically in Australia and are ECA accredited –‘Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) is an accreditation body working collaboratively with local textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) companies to ensure their Australian supply chains are transparent and legally compliant’ – taken from the ECA website. Prices of the tees start at $89, which is a reflection of the fact that these tees are not your fast fashion, sweatshop-made sh*t material tees. By purchasing one of these tees you are investing in something that has value, both environmentally and socially.
// Reason #5 //
You may have gasped slightly when I said your new tee might set you back $89, but fear not. By signing up to receive emails from the label you receive 15% off your first order! And then afterward, you will be provided a code for subsequent orders for 10% off. Also, if you follow the brand on any social media platforms (or actually open brand emails) you’ll be kept up to date with sales.
// Reason #6 //
Because I said so.
Ok, so reason #6 is a bonus reason and it’s because I love my own Bon tees. I ordered two tees direct from the Bon website (Pictured below) – A classic white tee and a timeless striped black and white tee. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen me wearing these tees in many photos. I just LOVE them. The quality of the tees are exactly what I had hoped. They are soft, well cut, well made and true to the description given on the website. I love these tees so much that I don’t think I’ll ever need to look elsewhere for my basics again. The Bon garment collections are so timeless and luxurious that I think all my future basics needs are covered!
So there you have it, a basics brand that is anything but basic. Start adding a little more luxury to your wardrobe with great quality basics by Bon.
