I am a huge fan of basics and key pieces in my wardrobe because it makes picking an outfit in the mornings a lot easier. A few staple pieces could make getting dressed more efficient, as well as keeping you looking somewhat presentable. These key clothing items works for both men and ladies, so we can all benefit from having stress-free mornings!

  • T-Shirts

A selection of black, white and grey t shirts is always an essential. They go with so many things – jeans, leggings, shorts or skirts.

  • Flannel / Check Shirt

No, not a formal shirt. A fashionable plaid one that you can keep unbuttoned or buttoned. I think these are really on trend pretty much all year round.

  • Denim Jeans

A good pair of jeans is probably what you already have in your wardrobe. I recommend black and blue because they pretty much go with everything.

  • Grey Hoodie

Hoodies are a classic piece to have and they are easy to style year round. In the summer, you can tie it around your waist if it is too hot or layer with other outerwear in the winter to keep warm.

  • Trainers

A good pair of trainers that will see you through a lot of wear and tear is key. You can pair it with almost any outfit (except a ball gown) and it gives the laid back and casual vibe.

  • Shoes

Shoes are for more formal occasion or if you want to smarten up your look slightly. Brogues are in fashion at the moment so you can have a more put together look on a daily basis.

You now have a wardrobe that is practical for everyday use. As well as saving time and effort, it saves a lot of money too – Bonus!
