Key pieces you need in your wardrobe to save the day!
Your wardrobe should consist of a healthy balance of everyday essentials and wearable favourites, with a few ‘standout- head turning – where did you get that from’ pieces. You might notice you tend to gravitate towards certain items more than others – consider them your ‘wardrobe heroes’. It could just be an edgy sneaker, basic white t-shirt or statement coat – it doesn’t matter – what matters is that it easily works with all your other pieces and always saves the day! Here are our 12 top picks…
Say hello to your new heroes.
This grosgrain leather tote it an absolute team player! It will be there for you all day long, it’s hard working, durable and totally classic. Not only does it look smart for the office through to the weekend, you can fit EVERYTHING in it…laptop, folders, ipad, cosmetic case etc…it’s a life saver. You can always jazz it up with a personalised leather key chain or beautiful silk scarf.
On the other end of the spectrum, is this lovely little resin clutch. A label favoured by fashion royalty ( Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle etc), their bags are always a bit of fun and add a polished look to your outfit. Why we love this piece in particular? It’s got a mother of pearl print on the white background AND a gold clasp- which means you can wear it with any jewellery or colour palette- a must have for an evening bag since we tend to need them less these days. It will work with your favourite pearls, gold chain or silver drop earrings every time!
Feeling flat? There’s a theory that wearing red actually lifts your mood and confidence, and we think this crepe wool dress might just be proof! Featuring a very soft a-line silhouette and tiny bow details on the elbow length sleeve, it’s a lovely dress to wear from day to night. When you get invited to a ladies lunch at the last minute or forgot you had your nieces wedding this weekend, this is the dress you’ll turn to.
Who doesn’t love a silk shift? Dress it up, dress it down. A simple swap from a sandal to an embellished heel in summer is enough to do the trick! Need another reason to love this little number? You can wear it all year round! Try layering a lightweight turtleneck under your shift dresses and pairing with stockings and boots for a chic winter look. Find a fun print that works with your complexion.
Whether you’re into a bit of bling or not, you will be into these divine embellished slides this Summer. They’re a light weight leather flat with beads and sparkle all lovingly stitched on by hand, and they’re just Fun! They instantly lift your classic linen dress or favourite denim jeans and will inject a little Amalfi Coast into your Noosa break this year. There are four styles in store now for you to fall in love with…
Not all heroes wear capes – some wear apple green trench coats! This trench is one of our all time, favourite pieces this year. It’s the perfect addition to a wardrobe that consists mostly of sophisticated neutrals of navy, black and white. It’s a mid weight fabric with beautiful fluidity, so you can wear it *nearly* all year round over jeans, a fitted dress or tailored trousers. It’s a real head turner – for all the right reasons.
The humble puffer has been given a huge makeover this year and it continues to get more stylish each season. This lightweight, softly quilted coat will protect you from the elements without detracting from your style game. It’s a must-have Hero piece for those who travel often and/or have an active lifestyle.
Belts. They divide people, but they shouldn’t – they should only be dividing waist to hip. That’s it! We often here ‘oh no, I’m not a belt person’…Everyone is a belt person! You just haven’t found the right belt. A black belt with a little twist will always be handy – use it to liven up a monochromatic outfit. Or, draw out other aspects of your outfit to make them pop- like a black heel with an other all white ensemble. Very chic!
Coming in to the warmer months, silver and tan accessories always come in handy. Pair with your denim or white jeans and white sneakers for a really fresh feel. Getting a belt with a metallic finish will make your outfit look a little edgier and can instantly elevate your weekend basics.
This sophisticated LBD can really take you places. It’s imperative you have a go-to LBD in your wardrobe at all times. Wear to the office, to drinks and out to the theatre – it’s the All Time Wardrobe Hero. The perfect trans seasonal piece with a round collar and 3/4 length flared sleeves, you can easily transform your look time again with the right accessories.
Featuring a lovely linen striped collar and elbow trim detailing, this LBD is the perfect little day dress for Summer. The shift style is so easy to wear and the simplicity of the cut means you can wear it from your desk to drinks with the swap of a shoe. We love the addition of the beige linen stripes as it lightens the look for the warmer months and would look fantastic with some espadrilles!
