This is a newest update on my “Creating my ultimate wardrobe” series. Lastly you were able to read my underwear issue, now lets move one and get into the closet.
Maybe it is the most boring story, so many people write about what are the basic of the basics, the ultimate foundation of their wardrobe, which they can wear all year arround.
Maybe it is the most boring story, so many people write about what are the basic of the basics, the ultimate foundation of their wardrobe, which they can wear all year arround. These are money worsty investment items.
I wanted to be more honest and specific: I do not include any seasonal items like a roll neck top or demin short, neither accessories- these are very personal of course the later on I will share a key piecs list – nor outwears – these are ready climate dependent items, really depends on were you live in the Earth.
My favourites will be shared in the links- not affiliate
Sleeveless tops: summer they can be a top, in the other seasons a layer. I do prefer black and white silk camisoles and nude cotton body.
Tees: can be plain or with any graphic on it, but I think you can make out the most from the plain ones: Black V-neck and white crew neck.
Long sleeve: can be worn as a pulover during summer nights or a layer under a pulover in the winter months. I do love that breton.
Shirts: you need a white botton-up from cotton and an other one from silk.
Black blazer: a great wool one is timeless, it can be smart, outwear or casual and long the lastest.
Jeans: you need at least two: light and a dark– cut it does not matter, find the one which best suits you. Skinny jeans are not in the fashion anymore, however I do suggest to keep one to be able to wear them with boots… remember how hard it was to tack in bootcuts and wide-legs in the past.
Black smart trousers: there are days when we do not want to wear jeans or just simply need to wear something more elegant.
Cotton leggings: opposite of the smart trousers, but once you arrive home or going for a walk with your dog etc. you need some comfy trousers, which is not a loungewear.
Black skirt: even if you hate or never wear skirts, try a black one – it is femine, elegant and smart.
Black dress: a stample truly- try to find the one which is good for any occassions or to the office– of course you can expand the collection with different versions for other weather conditions too.
Please note I have linked some high end and affordable options (what is affordable for me, might not for you). Serie is to be continued soon and I also have a lot to work on my basics…
