Six Wardrobe Essentials…

In September last year I wrote a guest post for the lovely Kimba at Kimba Likes, on the top six wardrobe essentials {in my humble opinion} … to read the full post – including why and what to look for – click here – a brief summary can be found at the bottom of this post.

A list of essentials is an idea I am expanding on, I am creating ‘Twenty Items For a Stylish Wardrobe’. This list will be less focused on trends but on pinpointing items that are stylish, add class and can be worn throughout varied seasons, trends and occasions. There are many who have created fabulous lists of items to collect, which I will admit provided some food for thought. Most notably, my favourite list would be Nina Garcia’s “The One Hundred”,  her list is very well thought out, forms a book and inspired me… I felt encouraged to look into my collection of accessories, clothes and shoes to determine what were the key aspects of achieving my style. I find knowing this, has been beneficial in looking deeper and isolating a small but generous number of items that I feel could be essential or of extreme benefit to any stylista {or those new to the game}. Once completed the list, I will of course write about it.

Six Wardrobe Essentials {investment items to be wearing for years to come – avoid details typical of current but fleeting trends}

  1. A Good Pair of Jeans – everyone should own a well-made pair of denim jeans, in a flattering but neutral cut.
  2. A Leather Jacket – a stylish yet practical item which will keep you warm and protect from rain whilst adding instant edge and glamour.
  3. Pair of Statement Heels – will become your go-to heels, able to be added to any outfit, go for a reasonable level of comfort but with features that add instant impact to a look.
  4. Statement Accessory – Costume jewellery is ideal, offering many options in regards to size, colour/pattern, embellishment, style and price.
  5. The Little Black Dress – The LBD is an iconic item that should be simple, affordable, versatile and long lasting. Think of the LBD as a perfect backdrop on which to design an amazing outfit that shows class, elegance and style.
  6. Leopard Print – Leopard print is a classic print, it will fill you with confidence and adds sass to your look. Stay away from fluorescent and look for the iconic leopard print {or soft earthy tones} to invest in a piece that will be easy to add to your favourite outfits.
