Adrift Clothing rightly claim their pieces are for Every Woman and I definitely agree. Whether shopping at Adrift Online or in store, their garments will have you feeling fabulous, and at realistic prices too.
Founded in Brisbane in 2012 by Rebecca Pullar, Adrift fashion accommodates all women regardless of their size, age, style preference or lifestyle. Rebecca herself says it best “Our aim is to make women feel good in their own skin and that’s what motivates us to keep creating clothes that make women look and feel their best”. These aren’t just nice words; Adrift clothing comes in sizes from extra small (size 8) to 4 XL (size22 plus).
If you have been around this blog for a while you will know I am a firm believer in the importance of personal style for your mental health. The Adrift philosophy fits perfectly with mine.
There are so many things I love about Adrift, and I feel privileged to work with them. Not only are the clothes lovely to wear, everyone I have met at Adrift is warm, friendly, and totally gets the importance of feeling good in your clothes.
Basics by Adrift; your capsule wardrobe building blocks
It’s possible that, like I was, you might be thinking that Adrift is a BoHo clothing brand. Yes Adrift does carry BoHo pieces but you will also find many classic pieces in the Basics by Adrift range. These pieces are the building blocks of your wardrobe, the ones we all need – tee shirts, dresses, skirts, shorts, and pants, all in classic colours like white, navy, neutral and black, as well as stripes. The Basics are also perfect for travel, making it easy for you to curate a travel capsule wardrobe in easy care pieces.
Also in the Basics range, you will find the fabulous 100% cotton camis and slips, items which are typically hard to find even in department stores, and perfect to add shape under a floaty garment, or to add cover under sheer fabrics. These come in Ecru, White and Black.
On trend Adrift Fashion
Once you have your capsule pieces in place you will want to consider some more on trend pieces to keep your look fresh. It can take as little as one or two new pieces each season to allow you to feel up to date without losing a sense of your personal style. Adrift showcases new items on a regular basis, focussing on seasonal trends in fabrics, shapes and prints. Even though these are the more on trend items, you can still expect the Adrift high quality both in fabrics and cuts. A word of warning to you here, if you like something in the new releases, don’t dilly dally, they sell out fast.
I must add, that whilst Adrift is a supplier of what we have come to know as ‘fast fashion’, with regular releases of new styles, you can be confident that there is an ethical underlay to all that they do. I have been fortunate to have this conversation with Rebecca Pullar and to see images of the purpose built Adrift Factory on Bali; built to comply with UN standards for occupational health and safety. Not all garments are manufactured in this location, but Rebecca travels regularly and works closely with all her suppliers to ensure staff health and safety are kept in focus.
When you are on to a good thing, stick with it
Another thing that makes shopping with Adrift easy is the availability of your favourite styles in fresh new fabrics and adapted for seasonal variations. For example, the Fae dress and the Lucy dress come in short sleeves for spring and summer and long sleeves for the cooler months. This makes life so easy when you find a style that really works for you, you can wear it year around whether with sandals or layered up with a wrap, tights and boots, according to the weather.
Complete your Outfit with accessories
Of course every outfit needs great jewellery and accessories to complete it, and there are lots of these on the Adrift site. Whether you are looking for a scarf, some beads, earrings, bracelets or a bag, you will find something perfect at Adrift Online. You might want to take a look at these for gift ideas (oh and for that really difficult to buy for friend – Adrift has Gift Cards in a variety of denominations).
The jewellery range now includes Adrift’s in house designed pieces featuring beautiful semi precious stones. Make sure you seek these out. Not only the perfect adornment for your outfit, but also truly beautiful gifts.
