Basics Dresses

Basic dresses

Make femininity the heart of your wardrobe this season. Our edit of Basic dresses features easy-to-wear capsule pieces that can be styled up or down depending on the day ahead. We created our Basics collection to bring affordable cashmere to the market, whilst still keeping the luxurious softness and high quality you’d expect from Chinti & Parker. From bolder shades to go-with-anything neutrals, you’ll find pieces that can be worn around the clock or for occasions.

How to style a Basic dress

All pieces in our Basics collection have been designed not only with quality and longevity in mind, but also to take the hassle out of putting together an outfit. Our dresses can be styled up or down, moving effortlessly from day to night with a simple change in accessories and shoes. Layer up with one of our Basic cashmere cardigans, or a sweater if you’re opting for the slouchy look. Pair with heels for a night out, or crisp, white trainers for laid back weekends.

How to wash your Basic dress

With the proper care, your Basic cashmere dress will last for years to come. Your new piece can be hand or machine washed every three to four wears, unless your piece is visibly soiled. 

If you opt for machine washing, use a knitwear or delicate cycle, on a cold temperature with the lowest spin. A gentle detergent – such as baby shampoo or a specialist cashmere shampoo – is best. To dry, lie your piece on a flat surface in its natural shape to air dry, and cool iron inside out if needed. 

Store your sweaters and cardigans folded – never hung – with cedarwood stars to keep moths at bay. Track pants should be folded in half and then hung in your wardrobe. Between washes, spritz with a garment refresher.
