Wardrobe Winners...

Now you know some of the wardrobe essentials...Are you freaking out about how to put them into an ordinary context?   

We do it all the time...Especially as normally we have TOO MUCH STUFF!  Another reason for a capsule wardrobe...

Our bible net-a-porter always gives us great inspiration...See?  What did we tell you... Stripe tees, stovepipe pants, ankle boots and a statement coat... Just mix and match the pieces for your shape!  Eg...If you are thicker in the thigh opt for a bootcut and a longer coat.

Ahhhh the Camel Coat...Such a love of ours.

Who would have thought woollen leggings could look so chic?  Ok so maybe they don't have to be Stella McCartney like these ones...But pair with a luxe bag (which you should all have invested in!) some fab points and a long tailored cardigan and you're good to go!  In warmer months we like leggings with a long sheer cardi in fabric like silk.

There are those stovepipes and that magic white tee again!  On trend key pieces like accessories in pop colour will update you in each season...And don't get us started on the leopard heels...

The white tee and focal point necklace...Amazing.  Substitute your bag here for a daytime chic or some black boots and tights for wintry warmth.

A tweed jacket is a perennial in season piece.  So is a printed Tee.  We still believe that these items are 'nice to have' and not a 'necessity' though...However, a pair of good quality black pumps we feel are non negotiable.

Black pumps, black skinnies and on trend colour pop clutch did you say?  Oh ... You've already got all these pieces? Too easy!

Denim, pumps, breton tee and a camel coat...You've already got these in your wardrobe!

White shirt, black faux (or real) leather leggings, black pumps, statement clutch and a stripe jacket.  With your basics it is so simple to change your whole outfit with one piece like jackets, bags, jewellery or shoes.  If you have quality pieces that you've invested in like your white shirt and pants you can then spend your money on updating seasonally on these things to change your look - day in day out season after season.

How fabulous is this dress?  It is so lustworthy it's ridiculous.  A classic dress in a classically tailored style will last forever in your wardrobe.  Never be afraid to wear the same thing twice.  Remember the days when people used to say to you 'Oh...I love you in that dress'.  You don't remember?  That's because you probably have a wardrobe full of instant fix crap that changes every week.  But it would be nice...

This look is just so classic, edgy and chic all at once.  We LOVE it.  And probably the easiest to achieve.  If you think it won't look good because you don't have this figure - don't worry - most of us don't!  And also it's more about having great quality garments in subtle colours that will let you stand out and not drown you.  Again - the white t shirt, black pants, black pumps, classic black bag and a classic grey sweater.  This would still look just as amazing with some converse or ballet flats.

We just through this in because we LOVE Arizona Muse - totally gorgeous.  But she does work a statement scarf, another wardrobe must have.

The gorgeous Tory Burch exemplifying how layering will work every time to give you a chic and on trend look.  Striped Tee, Sequin jacket and statement necklace all in monochromatic colours so she is not overwhelmed by her outfit. 

Argh!  She's always amazing.  Olivia Palermo in a classic watch, stripe tee, and some gorgeous metallic silver lace up flats.

Camel Coat, white shirt and beautiful tortoiseshell sunglasses...
