A girl must have her own basics; timeless pieces that you love and that love you back no matter the season or the trend!
In my previous post I talked about getting your basics right with timeless staples for your wardrobe. Today I share my list of accessories that are just as ridiculously essential as your ABCs.
Black Pumps (or in my case stilettos) … You already know why it’s important. It’s a pair that you can fall back on anytime, all the time. Like a best friend, you just must have one.
Going Nude - kitten heels or flats .. for the days when you just want to give the heels a break. Perfect with your skinnies or a pretty sundress. Even a heels lover like me needs a little rest sometimes.
Make a Statement … I am a bag lady. For me, a bag is an investment. A statement bag can dress up and bring an outfit up-to-date instantly. No, it does not have to be super expensive, but if you can afford to save for one and treat yourself to a nice bag, you should.
Watch it … In the recent years I’ve started wearing chunky man watches. I think they look pretty cool with office, evening wear or casuals. It just adds a bit of edge to your outfit.
Clutch / Cross body … I think if you find a cross body bag that doubles as clutch you’ve got a winner. I have this really stylish Ted Baker leather cross body with a gold chain which I can use either ways. My very own convertible! It’s a great 2-in-1 when you travel!
Sunnies … As the sun shines, you need your funky sunnies. Don’t just follow a trend – find a pair that compliments your face.
Belt x 2 .. One in Tan and one in your favorite colour. Remember you don’t have to go matchy-matchy with belt and shoes. Get daring mix your colours and create fun combinations. Belts help to accentuate your waist and give you that hour-glass look
Statement Necklace .. Interchangeable with everything in the wardrobe. Dresses, shirts, tee, anything and everything. Own the look and make a statement.
Flip Flops … for when I want to show off my pedi in my sundress! Nothing says relaxed and laid back like a pair of flip flops don’t you agree?
Tying it all together… A beautiful scarf can really pop your look. Put in a pop of colour or just dare to colour clash. Whatever your style, you can go classic or funky with this piece of accessory.
So that’s my must have list … things that you will always find in my wardrobe.
Understanding your staples also helps you pack easily for holidays and trips. These are pieces in your wardrobe that are completely interchangeable for creating different looks … Have fun experimenting xx
