These timeless pieces will never go out of style. Simply put: they’re the key pieces to the perfect wardrobe.
Find the perfect black blazer for your body shape. One sinched in at the waist is flattering to all body types. Wear your blazer to work with a pencil skirt or pants, or use it as a night jacket with a mini dress and ankle boots.
Every girl needs a striped shirt in her wardrobe. One with neutral tones like blacks whites and greys can be easily dressed up, or find a more colourful one for day-to-day wear. Team your striped shirt with jeans for a casual day look or with your blazer for a night out!
Denim jeans are an obvious choice- the trick is to find the ones that suit your body shape, and can be adapted into the looks of your wardrobe. Flared jeans are great for girls with shorter legs, as they add length, while skinny and straight leg pieces flatter a slimmer, longer leg.
The perfect shoe this season is tipped to be the red ballet flat. Red is the perfect colour, it is season less and adds a splash of colour to any outfit. Ballte flats are great paired with a cute dress and leggings, or a pair of jeans.
A bold statement necklace livens up even the most boring outfits. Invest in a bib-necklace, with embellishment in lace, beading and fabric. Alternatively, layer lots of long necklaces for a more boho style.
An oversized watch is another trend to look out for. Not only is it great for its functionality, but a good one can double as a chunky bracelet!
My favourite trend of the moment, a leopard scarf, is definitely one to copy. Teamed with a plain tee, jeans and flats, the scarf adds character to an otherwise simple outfit.
Arguably the most important wardrobe item is the LBD (little black dress). The key is to find one that has something unique about it, without it being just a plain black dress. Think an interesting sleeve, panel cut-outs or an embellished belt.
Last, but certainly not least, black tights are definitely a wardrobe must-have. Wear them day or night, teamed with almost anything. The best thing about them? They are totally slimming.
My advice if you don’t have one of the items above? It’s time to go shopping! You can thank me later.
