I’ve recently been watching quite a few YouTube videos on decluttering your wardrobe, creating a capsule wardrobe and the 5 piece French wardrobe. I’ll go into depth in this in a separate post, but what I came away with this week was the need to identify pieces that are missing from your wardrobe. For me, there were quite a few holes in my closet (lots of black dresses, not much else)!
Black skinny jeans, with no wash or distressing. I’m a Topshop Jamie Jean girl as I love the fit on me, so these Topshop jeans will be mine soon! A lightweight casual jacket is something I do not have! Honestly! I love tailoring and winter coats, so a lot of my coats are not Spring/Summer appropriate. They’re either longline tailored Crombie jackets or duster coats. A classic black leather jacket is screaming out to be added to my jacket collection. I love this All Saints one as I’m a sucker for the chunky rib detail at the shoulder and the fact that it’s not cropped. This would be ideal to team over dresses, or for a more casual jeans and tee kind of look. Finally, I seem to live in trainers these days, I have my black Nike Thea’s which I love, but no white pair. As my style is pretty minimal with the main colours being black, navy, white and grey, I think these all white Stan Smiths will be an amazing addition to my shoe collection, I love the mesh outer on them, such a great twist to a classic trainer.
I’m focusing on adding investment pieces to my wardrobe, items that I can easily mix and match with other items I own, are not too trend led and are well thought out. This week’s wish list fits the bill perfectly I think!
