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.
