Elevated basics with a hint of nostalgia.

Does it spark joy? Whether you’re a Marie Kondo convert or not, it’s a question that doesn’t go astray when you’re standing in the change room, knee deep in potential new purchases.

Often, it’s the classics that really do spark joy; the vintage-style jeans, t-shirts and tailored white shirts that you know you’ll wear day in, day out. They’re the elevated basics that are crisp and understated; the ones that make you feel good.

The Autumn Winter 2019 fashion trends are starting to land both in David Jones stores and online. This year, JAG has gone back to basics with their winter style offering. The new-season collection, aptly named ‘The New Casual’, is a return to the brand’s everyday effortless aesthetic.

“When redesigning and repositioning JAG, we have been quite nostalgic about what the brand once was,” Elisha Marshall, Creative Director tells David Jones.

With an appreciation for clean, considered style – JAG finds strength in minimalism and the relaxed Australian lifestyle.

Here, four must-have style staples from JAG’s winter 2019 fashion offering – available at David Jones online, now.

The Staple Blue Wash Jeans

Busted Knee Jeans
JAG Busted Knee Jean, $119.95.

High-waist? Tick. A relaxed fit? Tick. A raw hem? Tick. The JAG Busted Knee Jean is amongst the best denim online. It’s a style that you can dress up or dress down, depending on the occasion. (Or your mood.) Pair them with head-turning heels for after-work drinks or Stan Smiths for a leisurely stroll around the farmers markets.

The Classic Tee

JAG Vintage T-shirt
JAG Vintage T Shirt, $59.95.

No wardrobe is complete without one – okay, maybe two – logo t-shirts. It’s weekend style done right. They’re what you wear when you don’t know what to wear. JAG’s Vintage T-shirt, from David Jones online, is the perfect goes-with-everything shirt. Pair it with flare jeans and a silk scarf for a modern '70s vibe or smart linen shorts for an afternoon of running errands. It’s a classic weekend style.

The Easy Tie Dress

Jersey Tie Dress
JAG Jersey Tie Dress, $99.95.

Strapped for time? No matter. If you’re stuck on what to wear on the weekend, the answer is (almost) always this: the JAG Jersey Tie Dress. With a mid-length asymmetrical hemline and a waist tie detail, this elevated basic offers more than your average wrap dress. It’s a classic style that requires minimal effort – just throw it on – for maximum pay-off.

The Striped T-shirt

JAG Cotton Modal Stripe Top
JAG Cotton Modal Stripe Top, $59.95.

As far as we’re concerned, stripes should be considered a neutral along with black, white, grey and taupe. The Cotton Modal Stripe Top is the perfect classic striped tee. It’s a feel-good staple; a welcome addition to any wardrobe. Pair it with denim to keep things relaxed, simple and nostalgic. For an of-the-moment, wear it with bright hues (think fuchsia, marigold or emerald green) or a clashing print (tartan, stripes, spots, etc.).
