Every season, I love to clear out my wardrobe and get it back down to those classic, essential pieces that I wear time and time again. Given that the weather has been so temperamental here lately, and that I have a market stall coming up, last weekend felt like the perfect time to go through and edit my closet.
These were a few of the pieces that I noticed I keep returning to, and seemingly can never have too many of...
1. Oversized button down shirts
Either in cotton or silk, this style is an absolute staple for me. I just found this IRO one in the perfect shade on blue and it's now on constant rotation along with my white and black button-downs.
2. Black blazers
I have three of these now, and while that may seem excessive, they all feel different enough to have in my wardrobe. One is a linen blend with a roll-collar, the second a fitted, classic, Helmut Lang number and the last is this silk tuxedo style by Daniel Avakian. They all get a lot of wear, and it eases the pressure on my closet when I need to get one dry-cleaned!
3. Classic timepieces
I discovered CLUSE last year, and love that their style philosophy is centred around simplicity, much like my own. I have two of their slightly oversized styles in white/grey and all black which cover off all outfit situations.
4. Boyfriend Jeans
Perfect for those days when you just don't feel like a skinny leg, this style is both comfortable and versatile. I have a boyfriend cut in white, blue and black, and it amazes me how they look equally great paired back with sneakers or heels.
5. Black Handbags
Yep, give me a black leather or suede bag any day and I'm happy. My favourites are Celine, Chloe and Mansur Gavriel and I wear them all on rotation depending on the occasion.
6. Not so little black heels
I recently added these Givenchy heels to my shoe family (similar here), it was worth the wait to get them on sale! While my favourite Aquazzura's above have since sold out, they are always offering new styles which make me feel like there is room for one more pair...
