Best of Basics - 7 tips for an easier everyday life

After a summer full of energy, it's lovely to settle down to a fresh, serene autumn, enjoying a routine that is good for you. 

Update your autumn wardrobe with quality socks, underwear and other base layers.

A functional basic wardrobe of a few everyday pieces will make it easier for quick mornings, functional dressing and everyday decision making.

What are the best contemporary basics for sustainable fashion? Take a look at IVALO.COM's list of easy everyday tips and complete your basics:

1. CharlieMary's superset


If your cottons need a bit of a facelift, we recommend you check out CharlieMary. Their focus is on circularity and they only use deadstock materials in their production.

Our autumn favourite is CharlieMary's soft and comfortable underwear dress + undershirt in a reasonably priced set. The spaghetti-neck dress and top feel comfortable and fit perfectly under other clothes. 

With skin-on underwear layers, you'll increase comfort and extend the wash cycle of your clothes.

2. Aarrelabel tights

4. Sustainable (period)panties

CasaGin - Understatement

A small, but not insignificant piece of the wardrobe are your underpants. It's worth taking time looking for your own favourite panties, as finding the ones you like will improve your quality of life. Of course, the fit and comfort of the bra also plays a big role in everyday life.

IVALO.COM is renowned for its popular lingerie range, with stars such as Understatement and CasaGin. Understatement's specialities include colours, lace and also seamless underwear. 

As a new hit, Understatement has launched period panties, which even surprised the manufacturers with its enormous popularity. The period panties sold out immediately after launch and new batches are eagerly awaited.

A public secret of IVALO.COM-team is their addiction to CasaGin's silky soft Tencel modal. We're willingly revealing our lingerie boxes so that others can discover one of our everyday delights.
