9 Wardrobe Staples

Black Blazer
Perfect to put on top of any outfit and as an alternative to a cardigan. I have this one and practically live in it. It's warm enough for chilly afternoons and casual enough for lunch dates. I love it.

Striped Top
A wardrobe basic. It goes with pretty much everything and everyone needs one. This one is only £8.99 from New Look but you can find them anywhere and everywhere.

White Jeans
Again, they go with everything. They're easy to wear and even easier to plan an outfit around. I've heard good things about these ones from Topshop and they're high waisted which is always a good thing in my books.

Pair of Ankle Boots
Perfect with a pair of jeans in the Winter and just as great with a dress in the Summer. I live in ankle boots and think every wardrobe should have at least one pair. New Look do really lovely and completely affordable shoes and a great choice of ankle boots or a search of 'chelsea boots' on eBay will give you more options than you know what to do with.

Pendant Necklace
Pendant necklaces are a lot more subtle than all the statement necklaces floating around at the moment. They still add something and tie an outfit together but are a little more understated. I always go for silver and this one's my favourite from Forever 21. They do great jewellery and accessories in general so go and have a look.

Little Black Dress
An absolute essential. The amount of times this will save you when a surprise party pops up is amazing. I much prefer the plainer side of the little black dress but as long as it's black you can go crazy with the rest of it.

Oversized Bag
You will need one for something. Whether it's for the beach or just having enough room for an umbrella for a rainy London day, it will come in handy at some point. There's a million choices for an oversized bag and you can pretty much get one from anywhere. Primark do canvas material ones for £2 if you're on a budget.

Statement Skirt
Midi, maxi, skater, bodycon, suede or polyester it doesn't matter. It doesn't even really matter that it's a skirt. Skorts were all over the place last year in all kinds of prints and they're great. It's nice to have something in your wardrobe you can dress up or down and still make a statement. Even changing your shoes will change the tone of the outfit. I love the colours in this one from Topshop but I'm a little more partial to a skater skirt.

Gladiator Sandals
There's loads and loads of heeled versions of these available but I don't think you can beat flats sometimes. I am in love with this pair from New Look and will definitely be picking them up in preparation for when it's warmer, if it ever does get warmer in London.

What's your wardrobe staple?
