Maybe you're looking to re-build your wardrobe from scratch? Or are you just looking to update some old favourites? Either way, there are a set of style staples that every wardrobe needs. These building blocks are the pieces you’ll wear season after season along with the odd statement piece thrown in to keep it interesting. Below is our wrap up of the five style staples we believe every wardrobe needs!
Skinny Jeans – there’s nothing that says style staples more than a pair of skinny jeans with a classic fit and colour. We strongly recommend investing in a high rise style to elongate the leg. Because a medium wash is very flattering, it's an an easy shade to wear on most leg shapes. Check out our Harley Jean in Mid Wash.
White Tee – a classic white tee, like our Mia Tees, is one of the most versatile wardrobe pieces you can own. First of all, look for a tee that is soft to touch, has a relaxed fit and either a crew or v-neckline. Style it over jeans or shorts. Tuck it into skirts. Wear it over dresses with a cute knot as a feature. Layer it underneath your favourite blazer. The possibilities are endless!
Statement Piece – a stand out piece is the first thing people will notice about your outfit so it's got be either eye catching, bold or unique. For some this might be a stand out accessory, an oversize cut or a interesting pattern. Kimonos make great statement pieces because they're both easy wearing and mostly come in stand out colours and patterns, like our range of Estelle Capes.
Oversize Top – an oversize piece is not only comfortable but it will see you through the trans seasonal months with ease. Whether it’s for work or weekend attire, an oversize top can also be thrown over your swimmers in summer or layered under a knit during winter. And classic colours and patterns, like our Drape Top in Navy, will see you wearing it season after season.
Sandals – we often overlook footwear when we think about wardrobe staples. For a head to toe collection of classics, you can’t go past a neutral sandal. They look just as good paired with dresses and skirts as jeans and shorts do. We love the Tan Nubuck Sandal from Avarcas Australia because it matches just about everything!
