Our signature staples help you build the kind of versatile and long-lasting wardrobe you’ll want to reach for time and again. It all starts with Sympli-fying your style.
Here at Sympli, we love shopping for a good party dress or high heel as much as the next woman, but when it comes to establishing a timeless philosophy of dressing, we believe in dressing with intention. To that end, classic wardrobe essentials are forever and that’s why we love the concept of a capsule wardrobe: multiple outfits built on a streamlined selection of items that make day-to-day dressing infinitely easier. Low in maintenance and high in quality, our Sympli Staples are the building blocks of your personal style. They’re an instant and easy way to look well-styled and put together with minimal effort. Plus, we’ve designed them in such a way that no matter how you pair them together, you know the combination will not just work––it’ll wow.
So, whether you’re cleaning out your closet to make room for seasonal clothing or just thinking of adding some new pieces into your go-to mix, we’ve rounded up a selection of our Sympli Staples to help you build a wardrobe of quality items that are made to last and make getting dressed easy and fun. Each piece is made from our signature jersey fabric, meaning it’s soft, figure-flattering, easy to care for, and designed to last for years to come.
Let’s start at the top…
For something sleeveless, you’ll want to look to our Go To Tank Relax and our Sleeveless Nu Ideal Tunic; available in a multitude of seasonal colours and prints, both tops drape effortlessly over the body and feature side slits for easy tucking. The Go To Tank Relax features a flattering scoop neck while the Sleeveless Nu Ideal Tunic adds elegance with its high boat neck. Both make great base layers when worn under sweaters or cardigans, or they can stand alone on warmer days with jeans, linen pants, shorts or a skirt.
When you need something with a little more coverage, our Go To Classic T-Shirt Relax 3/4 Sleeve and our Trapeze Tunic (also with a 3/4-length sleeve) are absolute favourites you’ll want to style over and over. The fit-and-flare shape on these wear-anywhere tops gives you freedom of movement and flatter any figure while the sleeve length adds interest and a touch of unexpected you don’t get with a regular long-sleeve. The Go To Classic T-Shirt Relax 3/4 Sleeve features a subtle round hem and side slits for easy tucking, and the Trapeze Tunic boasts an elegant high neck and side inseam pockets for convenience. Plus, with a variety of prints and colours that range from classic black to seasonal pops of colour, your outfit options are almost limitless.
Need a timeless topper? Throw on our Everyday Cardigan Long. Simple, casual, with a touch of sophistication, this relaxed over-layer features cozy raglan sleeves, long cuffs and convenient inseam pockets. The length hits at the mid-thigh so it’s perfect for wearing over T-shirts, pants or dresses!
Then work our way down…
Having a few pairs of staple pants on hand will always make getting dressed less of a headache. The two styles that deserve a spot in your wardrobe all-year-round? Our Nu Yoke Legging and our Narrow Pant Midi. Our Nu Yoke Legging is form fitting from top to bottom, with a comfortable yoke waist for extra support, and they’re super-stretchy so you can move as you need to all throughout the day. These leggings can be worn however you please, whether that’s on their own for running errands or under a tunic or dress for an event. Our Narrow Pant Midi––available in a longer length––is a more tailored trouser for every day. With a slimming length and a fold-over waistband, these classic and comfortable pants blend elegance with functionality, no matter where you’re headed.
The one and done…
If there’s one closet essential every woman must own, one need not look further than the little black dress (it’s so iconic that it even has its own acronym: the LBD). The LBD can be worn anytime, anywhere––dressed up with heels, dressed down with sneakers, worn under a sweater, cardigan, denim jacket or totally on its own. Our all-time favourite Trapeze Dress is the perfect one-and-done piece to add to your capsule wardrobe. Knee-length with a flattering A-line shape and a chic high neckline, it’s available in either short or 3/4-length sleeve and it answers in the affirmative the number one question we all have when shopping for a new dress: “Does it have pockets?” It will last you for years, be easy to accessorize and will never go out of style. It’s the easiest fashion equation you’ll ever do!
