As promised this blog post is a continuation of the balance of items that makes up the rest of your Core Capsule wardrobe. Please read on and stay tuned for the blog posts on the A/W trends from last weeks event coming soon.
A classic cut straight leg dark denim pair of jeans is a “must have” in every women’s wardrobe. I like the way Levi’s has taken all our body shapes into account with their range.
A classic pair of black pants is also a staple as it can be dressed up or down depending on your day and can be worn with flats or heels. I often find Studio W at WW has always got a range of styles available and I take all my clients there as the starting point of building their wardrobe.
A black skirt, while not as important as the top two also makes a good addition especially as one can get quite bored of only wearing pants after a while, this skirt is from Zara. The skirt doesn’t have to be a-line as a pencil skirt works just as well.
A black knit dress especially in winter is a winner as again you can dress it down with a denim jacket, tan boots and accessories or dress it up with stockings, a scarf and heels for a work wear look. Dress from regular Woolworths.
If you don t own one by now, you need to get your hands on a classic black leather bag. Please rather investment in real leather as opposed to faux leather as real leather wears well over time where as faux does not, therefore you will not need to replace your bag every season. This particular style is such an easy bag to carry and a perfect size, from Willow Tree http://www.willowtreedesigns.co.za/.
I recently posted a blog on Vince Camuto shoes (https://www.vincecamuto.com/) which originates in NY and has now got a store at our very own Cavendish square, I am so impressed with their stunning range of shoes like this riding boot which is a wardrobe staple. Again invest wisely in real leather as boots that are a classic will not date after one season. When choosing your boots take note of the heel height like these and rounded almond toe shape.
A pair of pumps are a no brainer as they can be worn with everything especially when you are not wanting to wear boots on those sunny days, they don’t have to be pointy they can also be the classic round tow. These are also from Vince Camuto.
A court shoe with a heel can take you from day to night just by changing your shoes, from Vince Camuto.
Sneakers were once only meant to be worn at gym but it has become a world wide trend to wear them everyday with any outfit, I love this pair from Froggie as they are extremely comfortable and beautifully styled.
