Having worked in retail for a few years, I see so many trends roll in for one season and be totally out of place by the next and I’ve also learnt that there are a few key pieces that just never go out of style! So here are my wardrobe must haves…
I am a true lover of black denim, out of all my jeans I have around 5 pairs of black high waist super skinny jeans (I love Topshop Joni jeans, but failing that New Look Hallie jeans are a good (cheaper) alternative. I find that a good pair of black jeans can help dress up a look more than regular denim and even when slightly faded they still look so good! I also adore denim jackets, these are my go to during spring/summer as they help add some edge to a classic outfit!
I love being able to put together a simple outfit and add a jacket that makes it look so much more throughout and put together than in actually is. For my a biker/leather jackets my go to when I want to dress up an outfit, I love the (faux) fur lined ones that are always in for the Autumn Winter season! For me a good leather jacket is definitely an investment, but there are also some lovely ones on the high street!
For my everyday life I love a good pair of trainers, but there is nothing more essential to my wardrobe than a good pair of heels! Sadly my sales assistant wage means I can’t afford Louboutins (yet!) but there are some great ones on the high street! Personally I love New Look for heels, especially classic pointed toe courts as they have them in so many different colours! I already have so many different colours but for AW17 I knew I needed a gorgeous red pair!
I’m convinced I have an obsession with buying black ankle boots, leather, suede, velvet I have them all! I’ve been loving all the studded styles at the moment and of course the pointed toe styles that have been popping up have almost all ended up in my wardrobe!
This year I have really been loving the slogan tee, they are just so sassy and really take your outfit up a notch! There are so many fab places to get slogan tees but I love Topshop and Zara!
What are you wardrobe must haves for AW17?
