So for something different I thought I’d talk about wardrobe staples… because, well, we all need them!
So here’s my list:
1. Comfy, excellent fitting jeans
Why? Because they’re awesome. You can wear them with anything on top, dress them up, dress them down, roll up the hem… anything. If you choose the right colour, they can be your best friend year round.
Tip: Try Just Jeans. They carry Levis, Mavi Jeans & Lee Riders. And have something for everyone. They also do their own branded jeans at the moment; 2 for $100! Bargain!

2. Plain singlets & tees
These are your best friend. They can be worn in every season, can be worn under anything, and give you a blank canvas to accessorise!
Tip: White, black & grey never go out of fashion.

They are super comfy & keep your legs warm in the cold. They can be worn fashionably under long singlets or dresses, and look awesome with basically any pair of shoes. :)

This could be a trench, an anorak, or a leather. I personally LOVE leather jackets; mine has lasted me 2 years now and I wear it all the time.

Definition: 1) to keep time, 2) an awesome accessory. Choose either gold or silver to start; whatever is your style. At the moment, I’m rocking an oversized rose gold Michael Kors. But before that, I owned a white ceramic Fossil watch, and a gold Marc Jacobs watch.

6. Little Black Dress
When selected carefully, it can be appropriate for dinners, drinks, clubbing, dating, functions, and so on. They don’t go out of style, either! Just jazz it up with some neat accessories.

I personally prefer leather bags. They last longer and look much nicer, in my opinion. But I’m the kind of girl who buys one bag, and sticks to it for every outfit. I just can’t be bothered to remove the contents all the time. Brown/tan bags are great because you can wear them all year round.

8. Chic accessories
Whether scarves are your thing, bangle/bracelet stacks, or statement necklaces… invest in some good quality pieces that will always be chic!
Tip: Spend less on pieces that’ll be passing trends, and splurge on the ones that will last! (I say this as I watch an expensive neon yellow necklace on ebay.. breaking my own rules already!)

Choose something tailored, that brings you in in the waist and fits your shoulders and arms well. Go for a fun colour if you want something a bit different!

Well there you have it. My wardrobe essentials.
Hope you loved.
