We live in a period where fast fashion dominates the industry. Everybody wants what other people have, but once everyone has it, nobody wants it. As a result of this, trends come and go in the blink of an eye, and suddenly those smocked tops and belted swimsuits don’t look as cool anymore.
Not only is it rather daunting and time-consuming keeping up with these trends, but it’s also very expensive. So, instead of spending your money on outfits you probably won’t be wearing next season, why don’t you start investing in good quality and timeless staples? Take a look at the top ten essential pieces we believe every cupboard should house:
You can never go wrong with a simple white tee. A versatile piece that will most likely always be your base, this item is non-negotiable. Tuck it in or out, crop it or get it oversized.
White Dress Shirt
This is the perfect piece to mix and match, depending on the occasion. Again, tuck it in, wear it oversized or even get it in silk for a more polished look.
High-Waisted, Straight Leg Jeans
Opt for blue denim – they’re comfy and ageless. Pair with sneakers and a sweater for a casual look or dress it up with pumps and a blazer for going out.
Every girl needs a little black dress. From day-to-night, this look can be built by blazers, heels and jewellery to suit any occasion. Look for a mid-length dress to make it more adaptable.
Try to avoid bright colours or patterns – this one you want to keep very simple, so it works with everything. Don’t be afraid to splurge a little for this item – you’ll be wearing it a lot.
Black Dress Pants
Perfect for any important occasion. Find whatever style works best for you, but you can never go wrong with a simple high-waisted, slightly flared pant.
Keep it more sophisticated with neutral/simple tones or make it more fun with colours or patterns.
Black Midi Skirt
Another simple and versatile piece, this look can be transformed perfectly to fit any occasion. Silk black skirts our personally our favourites.
Camel Trench Coat
This will be very handy in the winter. Look for a long and slim fit. This is the perfect finishing touch on any outfit.
Timeless, classy and elegant. Gold jewellery will turn any outfit into a 10/10. Look for more quality pieces as you’ll be wearing them a lot and your collection will build greatly overtime.
