15 Wardrobe Essentials #1

Greetings, fashionable ones.

I often get asked what items I consider as classic, basic pieces that could form the foundation of a wardrobe. My capsule collection includes 15 pieces and every Wednesday for 15 weeks, I will be posting a new item to the series. Let’s begin…

1.  A Blazer

It’s classic, its feminine and it looks great on all body types.  Pair it with shorts, jeans,  a skirt, a dress – basically it looks good with almost anything! Make sure you find one that fits you well and accentuates your waist.  Colourful blazers are a great way to add a pop of colour to a neutral outfit!

How to wear it in your…

20’s – pair a fuchsia or coral blazer with a graphic or plain t-shirt, distressed jeans and killer heels for a night on the town or pumps for a more casual look.  Accessorize with a statement necklace or stacked bangles.

30’s – wear a black blazer with collar embellishment detail with a cream/white lace mini dress and black patent leather heels.  Add a beautiful clutch bag in the mix and you’re ready!

40’s – team a neutral blazer blazer with a silk shirt, indigo coloured jeans and neutral pumps.  Add some colour to your outfit with a brightly coloured scarf.

50’s – wear your blazer with a fitted shirt, a pair of straight black pants, and some  pretty shoes or riding boots, if its cold out.
