Wardrobes are built on a foundation of good staples and perennial classics. Pieces that fit seamlessly into any wardrobe, quietly matching with everything you own. They are closet hero’s, sturdy hard working friends, but every so often we need an update once holes start to appear and blacks begin to dull.
Black T-shirt > Leather T-shirt
The Black T-shirt is your blank canvas, easy to accessorise and pairs effortlessly with everything you own. Inevitably it will become dull, faded and stretched out of shape that’s when it’s time for a luxe update in leather, 3.1 Phillip Lim’s quilted T-shirt or topshop’s simple v-neck are the perfect silhouettes for edgy easy-going elegance.
Pencil Skirt > Asymmetric Skirt
Uncomplicated, simple and always flattering the pencil skirt will never date but if yours looking a little lacklustre opt for the new asymmetric silhouette for a bold razor sharp update. Hem lengths are at the discretion of the wearer whether cut at the knee or skimming the thigh, it’s an angle you must try.
White shirt > Pink Shirt
This season is all about the pink lady from cotton candy hues to the palest barely there pinks all tailoring should come tinged in pink. Practical and dependable the classic white shirt gets a fresh update in the seasons must have colour. Whether your pick is a relaxed fit or Saville Row tailoring blush tones will warm up all skin tones and give your white shirt a well-deserved break.
Black Pump > Grey Pump
The trusty side kick, the Black Patent pump works for all occasions but if those heels are suffering and the soles have seen better days look to the grey pump for a fresh take on the staple. Matching with everything from jeans to your LBD the grey pump is unassuming will work just as hard but give you the edge your black pumps have been missing.
