These Elevated Basics Are Elevating Our Lockdown Look (Win!)

April 13, 2021

We all know by now, a good pandemic wardrobe consists of lots and lots of comfy basics. Well, Canadian streetwear brand Kuwalla Tee is redefining that style through elevated, eco-friendly essentials we plan to rock all spring and summer long.

Committed to being sustainable and minimizing waste without compromising on style (all packaging is made with recyclable and biodegradable material, and Kuwalla Tee donates 1 per cent of sales to an environmental cause), the brand is built on the philosophy of clothing that goes “Beyond Labels”—providing tops, bottoms, jackets and footwear that are comfy, made to last and allow individuality and self-expression to run freely. Kuwalla Tee believes anyone can live authentically; choosing who they want to be, instead of who they are told to be, and we love that philosophy!

From the recently launched SS21 collection, we’re loving the variety of effortlessly cool basics in stonewashed and pastel colours. Our top picks among the many hoodies, slub tees, joggers, shorts, chinos, denim and outerwear? An at-home-comfort plush cardigan, shorts and crop top set made from soft and stretchy yarns that makes lockdown look (and feel) extra good! —Vita Daily

Win! A $250 Kuwalla Tee Gift Card!

    Joggers to me are the best because they’re the most versatile, they’ve got the comfort of a sweatpant but also look more formal and classy.

    I really can’t get enough of their hoodie’s, especially the tie-dye one. I also really love the cuts on the Eazy scoop tees. Can’t get enough from that brand. Would totally buy tie-dye sweatshirt/hoodie to my jealous friend Marilyn if I win. Haha mucho love ❤️
