top 10 wardrobe key fashion items
These may look like a few simple pieces, BUT they are all 'staple' items that you then style regularly with the rest of your wardrobe. They can work for anyone, ANY lifestyle - whether your working, studying, or juggling mumlife!

10 ITEMS AND WHY:

1. White tee - If you've followed me for a while on Instagram you would know I REGULARLY talk about a good basic white tee! It's the perfect item to wear casual with your jeans & sneakers, smart casual with a midi skirt & boots, or dress it up with a coloured trouser & black blazer. I love casual tshirts from Dotti and Zara, or for more premium quality try Witchery or Bassike.

2. A good knit - The perfect layering piece that can also add a pop of colour! Try a bold pink or ruby red this season. Wear it casual with jeans & boots, or cool casual with a midi skirt & sneakers, or layer it under a winter coat with black pants for smart work style. I love Dotti for fun fashionable knits, or for investment pieces try Viktoria & Woods or Bec & Bridge.

3. Denim jacket - it's versatile, breathable, and durable! It's the perfect way to dress down a maxi dress, jumpsuit, midi skirt & tee, or try double denim with jean shorts! And it's ideal to travel with as it doesn't crush and will go with every outfit. Try Target or Decjuba do great affordable styles!

4. White blouse - This can be a silk blouse for work style or a casual cotton shirt for mum-life. By investing in 1-2 good ones you'll notice how much you have these on rotation back with your jeans, skirts, trousers, even shorts! I love styles from Zara, or try an invest in a stunning silk shirt from brand 25 Around The World, you won't regret it.
_
5. Black blazer - This is an all year round must-have! Whether your dressing up. I love the beautiful breathable merino wool quality from OnePdesign, it will last for years and ideal for work style, or try Zara for a variety of options from casual to evening style.
_
6. Good jeans - We all own multiple pairs of jeans, but I recommend each season to ensure you have the right pair that fit you perfectly, that are on trend for the season, and that are COMFORTABLE. This season it's all about the mid to high rise straight leg jean. Try Levi's for great classic styles or Glassons  for styles under $60!
_
7. Black midi skirt - If you haven't already got one, add this to your shopping list. I  love the Decjuba Marilyn Midi. Wear it with sneakers & a tee casual style, dress it for work with a printed top & heel, or dress it up for a night out with a cami & strappy stilettos! Add a leather jacket and don't forget fab accessories! Shop Silk Laundry for a pure silk version.
_
8. Black pant - This could be a casual jogger, black denim, a wide leg trouser, or more dressy pant for work style. Whatever your lifestyle is, a black pant is an essential item in any wardrobe! I love Decjuba for a variety of casual black pants, or Portmans for work style. Or for a high end investment piece, try Aje or Camilla & Marc for beautiful tailored pants.
_
9. Ankle boot - Its a must have every Winter, and is still on trend this season - whether it be a simple black flat boot, or a stylish patent heeled boot. Whatever your lifestyle it can be worn casual with jeans or dressed up with a midi skirt or trousers. Invest in leather for longevity, and ensure they are COMFORTABLE! Shop The Iconic for a variety of brands, styles and prices.
_
10. White sneaker - Its been a key item for a few seasons now, and it's not going anywhere! Wear them with jeans, dresses, midi skirts, or a jumpsuit... or style them for casual friday's at work with a black pant & top! Grab a pair from Cotton On Rubi brand, or invest in a good quality pair from Frankie4 Footwear - they are so comfy you'll find it hard to wear anything else!
