The basics: what we should all have in our wardrobes

Good Classic Jeans

Where do I begin? The perfect pair of jeans is a definite wardrobe staple.

Jeans are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing, as they can be worn with ballet flats or trainers in the day time. However, the look can be elevated in the evening with a chic heel or a heeled boot goes well. In terms of outerwear to pair with jeans a good classic beige trench coat for a casual yet sophisticated look or a leather jacket for a grungier finish.

Below are some of my favourite jeans:

A Wrap Dress

An essential in every wardrobe and so it should be! The classic wrap dress is a staple in my wardrobe as I own a lot and I wear them constantly. From long ones to short ones, floral ones to patterned ones I have them all! A wrap dress started as a trend in the UK & USA but has gravitated towards Europe becoming an essential in the wardrobes of stylish French and German girls. I love the wrap dress because they are flattering on all body types!

Here are some examples of my favourite wrap dresses:

The LBD- Little Black Dress

I mean the little black dress is the ultimate wardrobe staple. One of the most versatile pieces for any occasion whether it be a job interview or a first date. To add some character to a LBD you could add a statement blazer or a colourful heel or snakeskin/ leopard skin boot.

Here are two examples of versatile LBD’s :

Plain White Tee

The plain white t-shirt can be worn at any event and can be dressed up or down. To keep the outfit casual you could tuck it into some straight leg jeans ( like the ones above!) with some trainers like Converse or Stan Smiths for example.
