With a little bit of an inside scoop, it’s actually not that hard to pick up the perfect items to update your wardrobe each season.
As long as you’re starting with a good base – a pair of jeans you adore (preferably in blue and black), denim jacket and black blazer, a couple of t-shirts that fit you to a tee (pun intended) and the perfect LBD for your shape – you should never need more than ten items to take your wardrobe from meh to hell yes from season to season. And who knows?
You might even discover a few new core favourites along the way!
Elastic pull-on waistbands replace traditional fastenings, think linen or silk blends
to match (also looks amazing thrown on over your “Mom” jeans)
Think Little House on the Prairie – floaty, feminine, midi or maxi length with a Liberty inspired floral print. #romantic
For an effortlessly chic look add silk! For extra style points spaghetti straps look new when combined with asymmetric sleeves or necklines.
The shift into summer weather calls for humble organic materials such as cotton and linen bamboo blends. Whether it’s a slouchy pant, shell top, or waisted dress – linen blends are where it’s at.
The more-is-more aesthetic continues, spurred on by the maximalist allure of Alessandro Michele’s Gucci. Keep silhouettes simple, but look for over the top retro statement prints for your wardrobe signatures.
Opt for one with statement hardware and unexpected colour – think red, forest green or a rich berry tone
Whether you lean towards natural organic pearls and liquid gold, or hi-tech plastic and resin floral jewels, your accessories need to make a splash
Yes! Natural sandals like espadrilles are in! Add sneakers to the mix for casual chic. Time to ditch those dirty thongs lady.
