Having some good quality classic pieces of clothing in our wardrobe is key to being able to create your most stylish looks. Good staples allow us to then add a few trend pieces seasonly and voila, you can start to mix and match for numerous outfit options!
I often get asked what some of the best staples are so here's what I consider 7 wardrobe must-haves:
1. A black blazer
This is really a no brainer. A black blazer is a stylish item that can be worn for formal occasions or dressed down with jeans for more of a fun, casual look. When picking a blazer it is important to make sure it accentuates your figure and dosen't make you look boxy; one that is cinched at the waist will avoid this.
Shop this one at Asos.
2. A great pair of jeans
Need I say more? There's nothing better than finding a pair of jeans that fit really well. How many of us still have our all time favourite pair of jeans from 10 years ago but just can't bear to throw them away because they used to fit like a glove and you're secretly hoping that A. you can fit into them
again one day and B. that the faded baggy knee look comes into fashion (guilty!)
It's really worth investing in quality jeans. Just make sure they are a good cut and on trend style.
Shop these Mavi jeans at Just Jeans.
3. A white shirt
This is a must have item again because of its versatility. A classic white button-up shirt can be worn with jeans or black trousers and is great for an effortless, chic look.
Shop this one at Glassons.
4. The LBD
Make sure you have one of these. It's the best dress to have in your wardrobe as it is one that you can wear over and over and still feel great. Because this is a staple item the style should be as simple as possible which then leaves you the option of dressing it up or down depending on the occasion.
And in the words of Karl Lagerfield... "One is never overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress'

5. Black pumps
A pair of black heels will be your best friend for so many different occasions- from formal events, to hot dates, to job interviews. They can be worn with just about anything! When finding your perfect pair think slighty pointed toe and a heel that is not too high.
Shop these at Mi piachi.
6. A Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is a great jacket to own as you can pair it with numerous things to create different looks. The DJ makes a great layering piece over a casual dress or outfit and is good for inbetween weather as it keeps you warm without being overly bulky.
Shop this one at Witchery.
7. A casual tee
Black, white, grey, v-neck, crew neck, take your pick! Whatever style you prefer this will be another essential item that will ensure you have layering options when you need them. Match one with your jeans, or under your blazer or under your denim jacket and you're good to go.
