All wardrobes need a good set of basics… we’re talking plain T’s, different denim, colourful socks you name it – these all provide a basis to a clean look. As a capital city, Cardiff offers a variety of choice in commercial shopping. The most suited shops for a taste in streetwear include Zara; an on-trend store with Spanish roots, Urban Outfitters; a more contemporary style with a hipster feel, and H&M – an old favourite where mum used to get your jeans. With regards to pricing, Urban sits slightly on the expensive side; however they compensate with quality. Zara and H&M are similarly more reasonably priced with still a good level of quality. Get yourself down to Queen Street and the St. David’s Centre to stock up on these essentials.
- Zara – 53-55 Queen St
