The Staple Wardrobe

White Shirt / Little Black Boots / Denim Jacket / Little Black Dress / Stripy Tee / Leather Jacket
Over the last two years, I have started to cultivate my wardrobe to be as simple as possible. I want to be able to wear the same t-shirt five different ways, instead of having a floral array that can only be worn with black jeans. I definitely got myself into a fashion rut, but I would like to think that my style is developing every single day. The items in this post are the ones that I think work together to create a staple wardrobe—I own four out of the six, and so I'm on the path to simplicity. The six items that are essential to your wardrobe are...

The White Shirt—a piece that will go with anything and everything. Whether you've been drawn into the 70s trend and pair it with a burgundy pinafore, or whether you'd rather keep it sophisticated by wearing it with some black skinnies and heels, a white shirt will suit all fashion styles. Unfortunately, I cannot find the perfect white shirt, and so I don't actually own one myself. I am always on the lookout, however! Can anybody suggest the best place to find one that will fit a 5"3 21-year-old?

Little Black Boots—at this time of the year where the weather is starting to quickly deteriorate, a pair of little black boots are definitely needed. My advice with this one is to invest in a high quality pair. Although more expensive in the short-term, it'll save you heartbreak and stress in the long-run. I went through three pairs of boots last year because I kept buying cheap!

A Denim Jacket—this item fitted perfectly into my summer wardrobe this year, and I could not have lived without it. I never have any in-between jackets to wear, but a denim jacket is the perfect pick when the sun is still shining. Easily paired with a pretty summer dress, or on top of jeans and a t-shirt on a slightly cooler day, it'll keep you that little bit warmer, whilst keeping you nice and casual.

Little Black Dress—an absolute classic, the LBD. Need I say more? This is the second item on this list that I don't actually own myself, and for the same reason as the white shirt. I simply cannot find the perfect one for me! The dress pictured above is from Missguided, and although it is gorgeous and includes a lovely bit of lace, it would be too 'boob-y' for me. Any recommendations?

A Stripy Tee (or 60)—knowing me, this one is a given. The majority of my stripy tees are from Zara, with the odd item also coming from ASOS. A stripy tee is a classic piece that can be worn in a variety of different ways. With a pair of skinny jeans, with a denim skirt, with some high waisted shorts, with a pair of wet look leggings.... the list goes on and on. If you don't already own a stripy tee, you are definitely missing out!

A Leather Jacket—my leather jacket is a new item to my wardrobe, gifted to me for my birthday from Mama and Papa. It has slotted right into wardrobe, being worn with almost every outfit. Worn with a thick, bright scarf is my favourite look, and it works fab to layer on top of a dress. This is the perfect pick for the colder months, with the denim jacket suiting the summer more.

There are my six staple wardrobe picks! What do you guys think? What should every one own?
