Back to Basics.
For 2018, we're going minimal and mindful, starting with our wardrobes. After the excess of Christmas, a wardrobe detox is just what the doctor ordered. We've compiled a cheat sheet to help you rediscover those pivotal pieces; the key items that form the foundation of a versatile capsule collection, with flex when you need it. Ladies, if clothes are the furniture of the mind, prepare to get your feng shui on.
We've gone back to basics and boiled it down to the bare necessities. The outcome is 21 humble staples, with wear-anywhere appeal and trans-seasonal versatility. We know... 21 items? Girl, we're for real. Use this advice as your digital personal shopper, next time you're in store, and you'll be on to a winner! In essence the task is simple, but, in practice, temptation hangs on every rail...
From a failsafe LBD - the icon of versatility - to a classic white shirt, and simple slacks, getting your formal bits and bobs in order will make life 100 times easier when you've got a last-minute function that requires a minimal approach. You'll also do well to grab yourself a blazer to replace your biker jacket. The smart silhouette is ideal when you need to smarten up casual OOTDs.
Knitwear should also be your BFF. From chunky, to fine gauge, and mid-weight knits, to decorative styles, a core selection of jumpers have utmost flex, thanks to their layer-ability. The same goes for polo necks: wear them alone or layer under lightweight summer dresses when transitioning into colder months.
We'd be totes irresponsible if we didn't include gym gear in our round-up, because... athleisure? Take your workout wear into everyday territory with some handy layering - a sports crop top under a loose shirt? It's a yes from us. Also, this stuff is pretty handy if you do decide to hit the treadmill.
Don't forget your everyday jersey must-haves: camisoles and crew necks, worn with your fave staple denim, will take you everywhere. And last but not least, you'll need a few seasonal wins: hats, scarves, and boots in winter, sunglasses and sandals in summer. It's hardly rocket science, but this simple checklist will be super helpful when it comes to a new year wardrobe clear out. Thank us later, babes!
