Whether it be a last minute date night, a friend’s wedding or even an important interview – we gotchu! Below are a bunch of our go-to style essentials we think every woman should own.
How many of these are hanging in your wardrobe?
THE PERFECT WHITE TEE
It doesn’t get more classic than a simple white tee. Think relaxed, lived in and able to be styled up or down. V necks add a little oomph and are perfect for layering, although a basic crewneck will always work for day to day.
Has the skinny jean trend ever gone out of style? Well, maybe…but at least not in the last ten years. High rise styles will add length, while mid lengths are the classic go-to. Take your pick!
WHITE BUTTON DOWN SHIRT
Whether for work, or play a classic white button shirt will add instant chic to any ensemble. Pair with a pair of skinny’s for an off duty day time look or a pencil skirt for your 9-5. You won’t go wrong.
The ultimate splurge for every wardrobe. A leather jacket will last you for years, it could even end up being an item you pass down to a little lady in your life. Like a fine wine, they get better with age.
LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Ask not what you can do for a little black dress, but what a little black dress could do for you. This is THE ultimate essential and will forever hide a multitude of sins. Just remember to find one with the right fit! (Or buy a few HA.)
The timeless classic striped shirt. A weekend essential and a beloved item loved by classic French ladies around the world. Oui, oui. You can never go wrong with simple stripes and a pair of jeans.
Classic, feminine with a hint of masculine if you’re missing a black blazer in your wardrobe you need to get onto that – stat. Seriously wear it with anything! Jeans, skirts, pants, work or play. Just add one to your life.
THE MAXI DRESS
For the days when pants just won’t do. Or in summer when you can’t be bothered picking out a top and bottom that works. A maxi is simple and effortless. Also; an essential when you’re sporting a baby bump (or a food baby!)
THE SILK BLOUSE
Silk blouses are modern, feminine and worth the extra effort to maintain. They’ll add a little sophistication to your day time look, or, with a few buttons undone, sexy up an evening look.
A PAIR OF LEGGINGS
Well, it is all about activewear these days isn’t it? Leggings = the ultimate comfort and seem to be our generations brunch essential of choice. So invest in a cute pair that you won’t ever wear to the gym…then invest in few pairs that you will actually wear there too! Ha.
