I can't sing the praises of good basics enough. A few safe investment pieces can last a life time and are worth the extra cash. I sound like a broken record at this point. By now, if you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you'll know I love for capsule pieces and near enough everything in my wardrobe is black, blue or grey. But what about the personality pieces? The parts of my wardrobe that stop me looking like I've just rolled out of Gap?
Coat - Aquascutum
Roll neck - Cos
Cropped Trouser - Boohoo
Bag - ASOS
Necklace - Bloody Mary Metal
Boots - Miista
It's a no brainer that bags and shoes are the easiest parts of your wardrobe to have fun with. While I love bold clashing prints, they aren't something I really wear. A novelty bag is easier to integrate into your wardrobe and doesn't tend to suffer the same staleness a statement trend piece will in a few months. Trends are great when you're looking for inspiration but they really are a style killer. It's easier to buy what you love and continue to wear it time and time again.
What are the personality pieces you're lusting after?
