You know those lists that appear frequently in magazines and on blogs that outline the must have 10 items that every fashionable woman should have in her wardrobe? Well I confess to thinking they are a little silly as they generally make the assumption that we all have the same style and the same lifestyle.
So after perusing Ines' list in Parisian Chic, I have created my own list ... for me:) I am not suggesting in any way that this would be / should be anyone else's must haves.
These are the items that I feel are the foundations of my wardrobe so to speak. Should one of them be removed, my style would collapse around me ;)
BTW this is not really season appropriate, that was just too hard. But for summer, for example I would swap out leggings for skinny pants.
My Essential Eight Ta da!!!
- The Black Blazer
Ines and I agree on this one. My blazer is a little less classic, has a draped lapel and is a knit.
- The Little Black Dress
Again, Ines and I agree. Soft jersey and trademark draping.
- The Skinny Jeans
Black, with a little room to move.
- The White Tshirt
Draped, jersey - perfect for layering
- The Ponte Leggings
A winter staple.
- The Tunic
Soft cashmere blend, wear over leggings or jeans
- The Ankle Boot
Goes with everything!
- The Leather Jacket
For work and play.
