As a fashion writer, I'm often asked what makes a wardrobe truly great, and my answer is quite simple: a harmonious balance of timeless staples and trend-forward elements. The best wardrobes around rely on a combination of tried-and-trusted styles that form foundations for your outfits and injections of personality pieces that add much-needed fun and creativity into the everyday. So you can imagine my joy when I came across Browns's latest edit because it focuses on this exact balance of staple styles and exciting directional pieces that feel incredibly fresh for spring and summer 2023.

For countless fashion editors, Browns has been a go-to shop when hunting for new designers to discover or exploring the latest collections of much-loved heritage brands. And it looks like for the warmer months ahead, Browns will be leading the way with its Mexico-inspired edit, which highlights reliable staples like classic jeans, transitional jackets and base layers, all with a slight edge or point of difference to set them apart from the rest. Take Marine Serre's leather jacket (with subtle monogramming all over) or Adreādamo's asymmetric crop top. These thoughtful designs ensure that even the simplest of outfits retain a directional feel.

Of course, the definition of staples can vary from person to person—a staple could be a simple white vest for some or a hot-pink mini for others, but this edit ticks all the boxes. Alongside the classics, this curation features cult pieces that bring the wow factor. You'll find trending skirt styles, utility-inspired cargos and the comeback shoe of the season: ballet flats. Whether you're spending the next couple of bank holidays abroad, upping your summer workwear game, planning al fresco dinners or simply in need of a wardrobe reset, keep scrolling for the best of Browns's new-in edit.
