Fashion Tip: 5 Wardrobe Staples

Walking In The Leaves

My fashion tip of the week:

5 wardrobe staples everyone needs

1. Straight Leg Denim Jeans

Christmas @ The Shard

The slim or even skinny pair of jeans is the number of 1 staple item every girl/ woman needs in her closet. Slim jeans are flattering on the more curvy body type and can be dressed up and down. They can be mixed and matched with the majority of your closet. If you are going for a more casual look they can be worn with a t-shirt and converse trainers. And if you are going for a more smart/casual look why not pair them with court shoes and a white shirt tucked in and finished off with a cute belt.

Typically you want to choose a dark denim as they are far more easier to match and can be worn all year round as they never go out of style. However, the more medium to light wash denim jeans are very girly, light and look great paired with floral, pastels, pinks and summary colours.

A couple of examples of slim jeans that I currently like include:

2. Little Black Dress

New Year's Eve Outfit

We all know that a woman’s wardrobe is nothing without a black dress – and to be more precise a LBD (Little Black Dress). It’s a classic colour. A classic look. You can’t go wrong!

A few cute ones I came across are:

In case you missed my December Fashion Favourites you can read it here! I’ll be releasing my January Fashion Favourites very soon!

3. Blazer

Blazer Chic

The blazer was always something you saw on boring lawyers, bankers and businessmen. But then fashion came along and made the blazer cool! Now when cool lawyers, bankers and businesswomen wear a cool, sexy blazer they look rich, classy and fierce. But the blazer isn’t just for the working woman. It can be worn out for lunch, on date or even to a party. It can be paired with jeans, leggings, dresses etc. You can make a blazer work with most things and there are so many types that each can be styled differently.

My favourite ones are here:

4. White Shirt or Blouse

When I think dark pair of jeans, blazer and chelsea boots – I then think white blouse or crisp white shirt.

A few looks include these:

5. Chelsea Boots

Car Selfie

They are short, flat heeled and pair great with dresses, jeans and skirts! The Chelsea boot is the perfect footwear that you MUST have in your closet to make picking what to wear easier. Chelsea boots complete outfits in a way that makes you look casual, chic and kind of rock (if that is what you are going for). I personally love the feel and look of my outfit of the day when I complete it with a pair of Chelsea boots.

Here are some cute ones I have had my eye on for a while…
