Converse just launched an essentials collection (that literally gets better with time)

Never have that "I-have-nothing-to-wear" moment again.

The brand new Converse Essentials Collection

While seasons (and trends) come and go, it’s safe to say that every woman has wardrobe staples that stay on rotation year-round. From your tried-and-true denim jacket to that classic white tee, these essentials are the foundation of your wardrobe. They pair perfectly with just about everything – no matter the occasion.

With this in mind, we bring you four polished pieces from Converse’s new Essentials Collection that you’ll reach for time and time again, for years to come. Yes, years. The collection is designed to get better with time. Each garment will break-in and fade with you over the years while maintaining its fit thanks to the four-needle flatlock construction. And while the collection may look simple, its superior fabrics and detailed craftsmanship tell a different story.

So, if you don’t want to have that “I-have-nothing-to-wear” moment again, keep scrolling to shop some of our must-have, timeless athleisure pieces.

Every woman needs a great white tee, for one obvious reason: it can be worn with everything. Wear this super comfy crew neck t-shirt with your favourite jeans, slinky slip dress, and track pants alike. We guarantee this will be one purchase you’ll never regret.

The Jumper

Ideal for trans-seasonal weather, a lightweight pale grey jumper can be worn with almost any outfit and its practical aspects make it a sure-fire winner. Not to mention, the figure-hugging fit of this style is super flattering, without being too restrictive.

The Track Pant

These could possibly be the most comfortable pants in the world, and they get softer with each wash. They’ll pair perfectly with sneakers, but can also be dressed up with a pair of sleek heels.

The Hoodie

Whether you opt to wear this relaxed hoodie alone or layered under a jacket, it’ll look cool for going anywhere from a coffee run to the beach. Plus, we love the bold, yet surprisingly versatile, burgundy hue.


The Essentials Collection is available from September 29 at www.converse.com.au and Converse Melbourne Central, Northland and Werribee starting from RRP $40.
