We can all relate to the struggle of scrolling endlessly through ASOS, PLT, Missguided- the usual suspects- and having no luck after 9827392 pages of items.

Instead of throwing money away on pieces that will inevitably wind up at the back of your closet, you’re better off investing in some signature, timeless pieces to make up a capsule wardrobe that never ages.

We’ve handpicked our top FIVE pieces that will take you from day to night and season to season.

The LBD.

Ah, the old classic. It’s not one style suits all- we all have our own styles that suit us best ladies. From straps to one shoulder, to halter neck- there’s something for us all.

The little black dress is an age-old classic that will see you through any season and any trend.

Pair it with tights and a coat in the winter, a pair of heels for a night on the town or even a pair of kicks to dress it down. There’s nothing quite like the LBD…

Classic Trench Coat.

With a few layers underneath for winter, or worn just with a t-shirt in the Autumn- the trench is a classic whose shape and relaxed style will never age.

You can throw this over a pair of jeans and t -shirt and instantly take your outfit to the next level. It’s effortless and stylish- and ladies, if you don’t have one in your collection yet, it’s time to invest!

 

White Trainers.

They might be a disaster waiting to happen, but don’t they look fantastic (when they’re new, anyway)?

Nothing makes me happier than a clean, white trainer- well, there are a few things, but…

They go with just about anything, are comfy and can prevent you from looking too ‘overdressed’ (is that even a thing anymore).

An Oversized Blazer.

It might not everyone’s cup of tea, but an oversized blazer really will take any and EVERY outfit above and beyond.

It just brings such a cool vibe- relaxed and effortless, but sophisticated and boss lady all at the same time.

Paired with some mom jeans, or over denim shorts for those cooler summer nights- I’d say this is a staple to throw over just about anything!

 

A White T-Shirt

If you don’t have one (or ten) of these in your everyday essentials, then please teach me your ways.

What do people wear, if not jeans and a white tee, on those days you just don’t know what to wear?

It saves me regularly and just makes for a great canvas to accessorise around, or a chilled look on its own when you’d rather spend the extra ten minutes in bed (every. single. day).
