Asos Loves – The Basics

So  I love malls. Always have always will probably. Hence the idea of online shopping was one that never appealed to me personally. Looking at images and clicking on them to purchase….Pffffft.. What a bore ! Takes away from the complete store experience, the ambience, the trial room havoc etc etc.. you get the point.

However, these were all thoughts that changed when i stumbled across ASOS (www.asos.com). * Dramatic Drum Roll*

Now for most people who live in the GCC, the mall culture is very prevalent as the  temperatures are soaring most months of the year and it is difficult and uncomfortable to stay outdoors for a a considerable amount of time. Also thankfully for us the malls are bursting with options and one will usually find what they need and will not leave dissatisfied.

That being said, the two kinds of people who I believe would benefit from a website like ASOS are :

1) The Fashionista : The shopper who does not want to wait until trends of the season filter their way down to the Middle East and reach the likes of Zara/ Massimo / Topshop. For these people online shopping is Paradise on earth with hundreds of websites to choose from and each website being updated with new products, the outfit equations are innumerable and can be custom made to suit any occasion under the sun.

 

2) The Basics Collector : The good old basic pieces in one’s wardrobe that can be worn with multiple  things and are staples that can take you through the seasons. These wardrobe staples are sometimes the most difficult to find and especially for those with a classic sensibility  hunting for the perfect “White Shirt ” or that classic pair of “Black Trousers” can be such a painful task.

 

Personally I  belong a bit to both the categories , probably like most people.

Sometimes not being the most proportionate person will leave me scavenging the stores for a basic pair of blue jeans. Or a white top that isn’t sheer but still wont suffocate me under the sun.  Anyway long story short, I always knew of Asos’s existence but was never bothered until I craved having the perfect pair of wide-legged black trousers and just could not find one anywhere ! Possibly  too late to jump on the band-wagon ( Hence the falling between both categories), I logged on to Asos typed in “Wide legged trousers and up popped 15 options !! No Kidding !!  And oh boy how I have utilized those trousers.

Find below the two basic wardrobe pieces that I purchased from the website and have worn on several different occasions.
