Creating a foundation wardrobe is part of growing up, the older you get the most you realise how important it is to have a few key pieces that you can mix and match. Trends are fabulous but they are a lot easier to work with when you have a savvily curated collection of basics.
Every fashion lover knows that there are some pieces that will always look chic and never loose value, for example:
1) A black blazer
Why? Because a black blazer instantly smartens up any look and can transform something casual into smart-casual.
2) A white shirt
A white shirt can make a look crisp, elegant and refined. Simple but oh so effective.
3) Leather trousers
They add an instant edge, plus can transform any look into something that is sartorially progressive!
4) An LBD
No explanation needed. An LBD is every woman's go to evening piece. Timeless and oh so sexy.
5) A Trench Coat
The Parisians know how to do chic, steal this style from them to update your wardrobe.
