The Wardrobe Essentials

Never mind the LBD, there are some pieces that your wardrobe simply can't be without. Items that can be taken from day to night, dressed up or down. You can throw in your statement pieces and your trend led items but these are your fail safe essentials! 

Biker Jacket
A biker jacket will be your best friend. Whether you're on a night out, walking the dogs or having a shopping trip, you can throw a leather biker jacket on over anything! Real leather jackets can be pricey but there are some fabulous faux leather jackets on the high street. I have had my eye on an All Saints leather biker jacket for a long time though...

Denim Jeans
We all love a good pair of denim jeans, right? For those days when you fancy being casual, blue denim is essential and when you want to dress it up a little, black jeans step in. Personally, I love a pair of Topshop jeans - skinny, straight leg, boyfriend or mom jeans, whatever you like! 

Winter Coat
When your mum insisted "You aren't leaving the house without a coat", I hate to admit it but she was right! Especially at this time of year we all need a decent coat. My essentials are a camel winter coat and a black duster coat - they'll go with everything, look stylish and keep you warm! 

Who doesn't love a cosy jumper? I mean we can't all justify a closet full of cashmere but if you have a few decent quality knits you can't go wrong! If you have one in every colour that's even better! My go-to shop for knitwear is H&M, they always have an abundance of stylish jumpers!

Basic Tee
You can't go wrong with a simple slogan tee! For a stylish, casual outfit, tuck a tee into straight leg jeans and throw a biker jacket over the top. Or for a slightly dressier look pair a slogan tee with culottes. The high street and online has lots of great basic tees from bretons to slogans!

Ankle Boots
My favourite thing about A/W is definitely the boots! I like to have a couple of statement pairs in my wardrobe but a simple pair of heeled black boots are must have for me! They go with everything, smart or casual. I recently got a pair of black heeled sock boots from Topshop which are super flattering and comfy! 

Last but definitely not least are flats. This ranges from sneakers to loafers, whichever you find comfy. You can spend a little more on flats to get the best quality and long wear out of them. I'm more of a heel girl but I'd never be without flats for those days I want to be a little bit more casual!

  1. These are deffo things everyone should have. I also have that Girl Power tee.


  2. What a great list, definitely most of those are in my wardrobe and I always keep a spare coat in my car so that I can switch in or out depending on our temperamental weather. Jeans I am slowly building up my collection of, from skinny's to ripped jeans in all the different shades of blue I can find! Knitwear is also coming to the front of my wardrobe especially with the cooler days and evenings on the horizon
