If you ask us, Uniqlo has totally outgrown its signature adjective: basic. Sure, we love walking into Uniqlo and finding staggeringly cheap cords and cashmere in every color of the rainbow. But the thing that makes it so compulsively shopable is its basics with a haute-design twist. I mean, a girl only needs so many white tees, right?
Ahead, find the proof in 11 dresses. From simple, high-waisted maxis to cutting-edge, layered silhouettes (courtesy of Uniqlo's collaborations with SUNO and the avant-garde, Tokyo-based G.V.G.V.), these dresses are easy-to-wear — yes — but way too chic to call basic.
