Style report goes back to basics. A selection of fail-safe pieces that should not be lacking in any wardrobe. Before you start taking leaps and bounds and experimenting with other styles and trends in fashion, without these classic essentials, there are gaps to be filled in your wardrobe.
Here is the first part of my recommended wardrobe foundations. These pieces (not necessarily the brand) from personal experience have been my saving grace at some point in time when other clothes have failed.
They are pieces that easily transition from day to night, season to season and complement every other outfit.
A Blazer, every wardrobe needs a black blazer. Preferably a fitted black blazer. Truthfully, I have one which I’ve had for years, you might have seen me wearing it in various posts e.g here. A good black blazer is worth an investment or a splurge if you can, I guarantee you would be wearing it for a long time. Above is one from Zara.
Nothing but a Tank Top. Layer up through winter and wear as it is during the summer. A black tank is a must-have as much as the white. I own about 20 tank tops and half of them are black. The best ones I own are from H&M, they are durable, the black remains as black, does not bubble and very affordable too. H&M Tank Tops.
Blue Jeans, Black Jeans. If you can wear jeans, I need not preach. I know there are people who can not wear jeans, but if you can I’m sure this is already covered. Blue Jeans, Topshop, Black Jeans, MiH Jeans. .
Let your shoes do the Walking. Invest, splurge, go budget, what ever one can afford, a pair of black pumps )high or midi heels) would save the day. My black pumps are my ‘super hero’ shoes, especially if you are not a heel wearer these are the only pair of heels you need. A simple black leather ones would take you from job interviews to cocktail parties and any other occasion you can think of. I think these (pictured) from Next are good for both everyday or occasional wear.
This is only the first part of ‘Basic Wardrobe Foundations’ but I would love to hear from you, what are your basics? What could you not do without in your wardrobe? Does it justify a splurge or do you go budget on essentials? You can discuss on twitter via @Glitterswall or follow on Facebook and Bloglovin to read the discussions.
