Build a wardrobe that lasts, fill it with versatile, quality pieces that are chic and timeless. The key is finding pieces that you can easily pair together in neutral colours and classic silhouettes.
We’ve put together a list of what we believe to be essentials for a wardrobe that keeps giving.
BLUE WASH DENIM JEANS
Find a pair that fit and flatter in all the right places. Denim goes with everything but our fave way to wear denim is with a fresh white tee.
WHITE BUTTON DOWN
Dress it up, wear it to work or dress it down with denim. Every wardrobe needs a good quality white button down. Opt for a natural fabric like cotton or linen for comfort.
A simple black dress doesn’t date, it’s something you can keep forever and reinvent with accessories.
Black, grey or navy stripes.. it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s stripes.
Fitted or oversized, cuffed or cropped… a white tee is the ultimate wardrobe essential because not only does it look great but it goes with everything.
BLACK WASH JEANS
Black jeans can be worn with anything. Find a pair that fit you perfectly and you’ll never need another pair.
Comfort is key, but you can have style too. Opt for neutral colours such as grey, black, cream or tan. For extra warmth try wool, cashmere and cotton.
A leather jacket will last forever and only gets better with age. Find a genuine leather that fits you well and you’ll never want to take it off.
Jeans can be a little hot in summer so opt for a denim skirt instead. Pair with sneakers, boots or flats for a casual, day look or with heels to glam it up for night.
A grey tee can be paired with anything, we love matching with leather and denim.
A long coat is essential for those winter months. Choose neutral colours and classic silhouettes to last more than one winter. Wool coats will keep you the warmest.
We all need a denim jacket for the days when you want to keep is casual. It’s easy to find a great vintage denim jacket from your local thrift store.
Keep it casual with slides or sneakers or dress it up with strappy heels.
A black leather skirt makes any outfit instantly cool. Pair with sneakers, boots, slides or heels.
