Wardrobe basics every girl should check off her list

There is a reason behind why we accumulate so many white t-shirts and black dresses – these pieces never go out of style. These items are the foundations of a solid wardrobe just because you can wear them many ways. Whilst these items are already in your wardrobe, we decided to do a checklist so you can add a few more staples that you’ll be reaching for over and over again.

A classy pair of black trousers 

Get frilly with it! Frills are bang on trend this season and are everywhere on the catwalk. This black cigarette style and asymmetrical draped frill sides will totally be your hottest staple piece.

A fitted blazer to pair with a shirt or alone 

This military style blazer is so Balmain and is a item that never fails. This jacket from Next features a cropped silhouette and military styling with contrast piping, antique gold buttons and an edge-to-edge fit – perfect.

A crisp white shirt 

Keep it basic with a crisp white shirt to pair with anything. This lightweight cotton slim fit shirt from Ralph Lauren puts a modern spin on the pure polo shirt. It’s perfect for the day or after dark, wear yours with everything from skinny jeans to a skirt.


A dark denim pair of jeans in a style that flatters your figure

You can’t go wrong with a darker denim to flatter your figure. We love this super skinny pair from River Island. Match with any style top and accessories and you’re good to go – winner.


A leather jacket 

Rock a leather biker look in this faux leather jacket. Effortlessly stylish with quilted mix panels and finished off with gun metal hardware. Super chic.
