Baukjen - the go-to brand for your capsule wardrobe

Some of my previous posts have been about the emerging trends for SS17 and keeping an eye of what's fresh and exciting. However ultimately every wardrobe should have some good quality basics. These are your comfort blanket, your fail-safe, your throw-on-when-you-have-to-be-out-the-door-in-5-mins-but-still-want-to-look-smart pieces. They will even mix and match with each passing trend.
Ultimately you don't want to cut corners here and go cheap when looking for these. They have to be quality because you want them to last as you will bring them out of your wardrobe season after season.

Baukjen is a brand that delivers all these and in fact l bought lots of my basics when pregnant from their sister brand, Isabella Oliver and they lasted well-enough to pass on to my sister.

Baukjen is a London-based premium online womenswear brand founded by Dutch designer Baukjen De Swaan Arons. Their focus is on creating wardrobe classics with a contemporary twist. This is achieved through clever design and the use of the luxury fabrics which creates pieces that offer endless and effortless ways of creating the perfect outfit. 

The items below are what every woman, no matter what age should have in her wardrobe.


This first piece, the tailored striped shirt, is a no-brainer.  It can be styled so many ways l could write a whole article article on this piece alone! Tailored shirts were seen on the catwalks for SS17 and this one will last beyond that.


This top will be your faithful piece for weekends and never goes out of style. I particularly like the boat neck style of this one.
I posted a picture on Instagram of me wearing my Breton stripe top recently and it was open of those days were l didn't have too much time to decide what l should wear as l had to get the kids to school. 

I wear mine all year tucked into skirts, with jeans, shorts.....the list is endless. Always with red lipstick though!


This is the one item l'm obsessed by and will always have in my wardrobe (you just don't need 4 like me!). Love it so much! Definitely have to go for quality and good tailoring here or it just won't work. You could have the most basic outfit on but put a trench coat on and your done! I wear mine with EVERYTHING!


I love the preppy style of V-neck jumpers and especially love this one with the star pattern to bring it up-to-date. The perfect item for a weekend with a beautiful pendant hanging at your neckline to tie the whole thing together.


This item never goes out of fashion and Baukjen have brought it up to date in this soft pink which in case you haven't noticed is the colour of the season. They also offer it in navy and black for those who prefer a classic look. Either way this will last you for years and l think you'd be surprised on how often you'd wear it. I would style with floaty dresses for Summer/jeans(obvious)/cropped trousers/shirts.....
