10 Wardrobe Essentials

These are 10 items that I think should be in every girls wardrobe:
  • Little Black Dress: The LBD is a versatile dress that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. The style of the dress should be as simple as possible. For daytime it should be worn with a jacket and pumps and for evening, complete the look with high heels and accessories.

  • Jeans: Everybody needs a good pair of jeans, you should invest in your jeans as they will last for years. Jeans are so versatile, they can be casual/dressy. Good jeans can be hard to find, but take your time, and make sure those jeans are right for you. (remember to buy your jeans a little snug as they can expand with wear)

  • Leather Jacket: A short leather jacket is versatile, paired with jeans or a casual dress, the leather jacket is the perfect option to pull together stylish, yet casual outfits. Always make sure your jacket fits well and comes to just below your wrist bone.

  • Dressy Trousers: A well made pair of dress trousers are very versatile and go with most things in your wardrobe. Dressy trousers look best with a smart shirt and cardigan. Both heels and pups go great with these trousers.

  • Cardigan: There are many ways to incorporate a cardigan into your outfits. A cardigan can be dressed down or up. Cardigans go with dresses, jeans, skirts and dressy pants. I think the vest colours to have are black, grey and white, and after the basics you can add reds, yellows, pinks, purples, whatever you like.

  • Trench Coat: The classic khaki trench coat is suitable for day or evening wear. The belt tie is great at cinching in the waist. Again the trench coat can be worn with skirts, jeans, the list is endless. With a trench coat any outfit looks polished and chic!

  • White Shirt: There are many different styles of white shirts, all of which are a great wardrobe essential. Goes with jeans, skirts (knee length/full) or dress pants, the possibilities are endless. Layer/accessorise to your liking.

  • Wrap Dress: Very versatile, every wardrobe should have 1 or 2 wrap dresses. A wrap dress can be worn so many different ways, casual/dressy. Go get yourself one now! (wrap dresses are also very slimming and good at hiding bulges!)

  • Nautical Top: Isn't often mentioned as an essential, but a nautical top can make the simplest of outfits look chic and effortless. This top looks great with a pair of jeans and flats. If it's cold wear with a trench or cardigan.
  • Blouse: Whether your blouse is short sleeved, long sleeved or sleeveless, they are a wardrobe must have. team with jeans, skirts or layer them with cardigans/jackets. You can wear them again and again knowing that they are casual or dressy, it's up to you!

Hope you enjoyed....
Until next time....
